Dress up as Olive Hoover

Olive (Abigail Breslin) loves beauty pageants. So imagine how stoked she was when she found out she got into the Little Miss Sunshine pageant! The catch is that the competition is held outside of their Albuquerque. The whole family reluctantly agrees to go on a long road trip in their Microbus to support Olive’s dream. Along the way, we see all of Olive’s quirky and bright outfits. Choose which of the 2 below you like to wear!

Big Eyeglasses
Olive wears a big pair of eyeglasses, one of the features that made her look different from her more Barbie doll like pageant competitors

Red Terry Cloth Headband
The Little Miss Sunshine contestant wears a sporty red headband on his forehead in one of her other outfits. She appropriately pairs it with a sleeveless jersey shirt

Red Dinosaur Graphic Tee
In one of Olive’s memorable outfits, she wears a Seismosaurus t-shirt. I have yet to find the exact replica, but a dinosaur tee like this one should be a good substitute.

Leopard Print Shorts
To pair with the dinosaur tee, Olive wears a pair of pink leopard print short pants.
This one is not the exact replica but the color is delicate enough and the animal print does the trick.

Red Jersey – Sporty Tank Top
Get yourself an athletic red jersey to pair with the headband above and the knee-length shorts below. Olive’s shirt has “68″ plastered on it. You can recreate this with

Orange Jelly Watch
On her left arm, she also wears an orange jelly watch. Very colorful, no?

Red Cowboy Boots
To add that extra oomph to her red shirt / leopard short pants outfit, she wears a pair of red cowboy boots! This one costs a little over 20 bucks – a pretty good deal!
