The Dexter Laboratory costume is taken a right from the Cartoon Network show of the same name. Dexter is one of the most popular cartoon characters of his time. 

Dexter is known as the boy genius because he is a brilliant scientist, but he is still a kid. Because he is still a child, a lot of his schemes and inventions go differently than he plans. 

They are also often thwarted by his annoying older sister, Dee Dee. Still, Dexter is undeterred, with his intelligence and ego making him quite arrogant and confident

Frequently, the inventions that Dexter comes up with can be sinister and nefarious in nature.

In the article below, you can learn how to create your own Dexter costume. Keep reading to see how.

You’ll Need:

  1. Scientist Lab Coat
  2. Square Sunglasses
  3. Purple Gloves
  4. Straight-Fit Work Pant
  5. Orange Hair Wax
  6. Pointed-Toe Dress Boots

DIY Dexter Laboratory Costume Guide

To start off this scientist’s costume, you will, of course, need a white lab coat. Under the coat, you can wear a simple tee. 

Pair the lab coat with black straight-fit work pants, and add some class and style by stepping into a pair of pointed-toe dress boots.

Dexter adds some color to his ensemble by wearing purple gloves that rise past his wrists. He also wears a pair of thick-rimmed black glasses that help him see as he works. 
Unlike his sister, Dee Dee, who is blonde, Dexter has natural orange hair. Use orange hair wax to your hair to complete the whole look.
