Last update:

McDonald’s mascot is one of the world’s most iconic characters. He’s made kids smile and promoted McDonald’s since the 1960s as a twist on the classic clown motif.

His replacements in the 1970s were Mayor McCheese, the Hamburglar, Grimace, Birdie the Early Bird, and The Fry Kids, but they lasted less time than the original.

A lot of yellow and red can be seen in Ronald’s charming look, with his red and white striped shirt and socks, oversized clown shoes, and a curly red wig.

DIY Ronald McDonald Costume Guide

Making your own Ronald McDonald costume is going to be a lot of fun and unforgettable!

The first step is to get a red clown wig. As a second step, wear a red and white striped shirt with a long sleeve. In addition, you will need to have some red and white socks on hand.

Wear a yellow jumpsuit or coveralls to complement the look. The other option is to wear a yellow vest and pants that match the vest.

You may have to cut the sleeves off of the top. If you want to add a nice touch to the top, you can add an M for McDonald’s.

Make sure you have yellow gloves on your hands. Put on some clown shoes in red. It would be nice if you had yellow shoelaces.

In many McDonald’s commercials until around 2003, he appeared with his friends Grimace, Mayor McCheese, and Hamburglar in McDonaldland.

As he has built a charity in his name entitled Ronald McDonald House, he is typically seen in restaurants interacting with families and even has a restaurant named after him. When families visit sick children in nearby hospitals, it serves as a place to stay.
