Richie Rich Costumes


Richie Rich
Dress up as the fabulously wealthy boy, Richie Rich. Bring along your canine with you as your “dollarmation”! You can either dress up as the comic book or the cartoon character

Dress up as the Comic Book Version

Richie Rich Outfit in the Comic Book

In the comic book version, Richie looks like a very young boy. He wears a very formal suit and some shorts – the perfect preppy look for a rich boy like him.

Blonde Wig
Richie’s hair is blond

Black Blazer
In the comic book version, Richie Rich is portrayed as a young boy wearing a black blazer / coat over a white shirt (it’s highly likely that the shirt is a collared dress shirt) as it fits with his rich, gentlemanly attire. The white sleeves of the shirt also pop out from under the blazer, just like in the picture. Richie probably wears a more formal black blazer but for a costume party, a more casual interpretation should do the trick

Red Bow Tie
A distinct red bow tie makes his look stand out.

Blue Shorts
A pair of blue shorts makes for a preppy look for boys

White Argyle Socks
Richie wears a pair of white socks with blue details. You know what would be a great addition? An argyle pattern to give him an even more sophisticated air

Dress up as Cartoon / TV Show Version

Similarities between the cartoon and the comic book – the blonde hair, the bow tie, and the wealth, of course!

Costume of Richie Rich in the Cartoon TV Series

Blonde Wig
Richie still has that neat blonde hair but there is a slight curl on both sides which you can try to mimic using some hair spray

R Letter Applique
This is a big applique and the font is varsity-type so it would look really nice on the shirt

Red V-Neck Sweater
The cartoon TV series version of Richie Rich still looks preppy, but he seems slightly older and/or taller. Instead of a very formal suit, he wears a red sweater with a letter R on it, and a collared shirt underneath

White Button Down Shirt
Wear a white button down underneath the red sweater. I’m sure you have this work essential hanging around in your closet ;)

Blue Bow Tie
The red bow tie was replaced by a blue one – a good choice since the pullover is already colored red
