After doing a tutorial for Jughead’s outfit it made sense that my next Riverdale tutorial would be for Betty’s outfit as this would make the perfect couples costume. Although their relationship has had its ups and downs throughout the series they’re still a recognizable duo.
Riverdale is one of my favorite Netflix series at the minute, it may not be the most deep show on right now but it’s good to sit back and watch on a chilled weekend. The first season didn’t take itself too seriously while the second season ups the stakes going from a typical teen series to something more dark and grimy.
In today’s post I’ll be showing you how to make a Betty Cooper Riverdale costume, although there are no official costumes for this character it isn’t difficult to put together from scratch.
Betty Riverdale Wig
The first thing you’ll need is a wig (if your hair isn’t the right color) which matches the style and color of Betty’s. This wig is perfect for the character as it has dark roots continued by light blond. You’ll want to keep this in a tight ponytail as Betty does, she is always immaculate.
Betty Cooper Riverdale Outfit
Betty is known for her sweet and kind demeanor, but bubbling underneath is a darker side away from the control of her parents especially her controlling Mother. We first see this dark side of her personality when she confronts Chuck who embarrassed Veronica all over social media. She wears a mysterious dark wig and sexier attire.
When she isn’t being ‘dark Betty’ she is seen wearing her usual innocent pink and white colorscheme. You’ll need a pink cardigan, and underneath wear a white polka dot shirt. Finish with a pair of black leggings or denim jeans and some pink flats.
Another outfit we see Betty wear consists of a pink shirt with white embellished collar. I couldn’t find the exact shirt she wears although the one we picked above is similar. Then add a pair of denim jeans.
These pink ballerina style shoes will go along with either of Betty’s pink colorscheme outfit with a cheerful bow tied to the front similar to what we see her wear on the show.
As I said in the introduction I’ve already covered Jughead’s outfit which you can check out as it would make the perfect fancy dress idea for couples (unless the pair break up again). Keep an eye on the blog as we’ll be adding more Riverdale themed guides in the following weeks. Also don’t forget to foow us on social media for updates whenever we post new tutorials.
