    Go out and get the missing pieces. This is, of course, optional.

    Adapt your hairstyle. If you want to appear bald, cover it with a rubber cap instead of shaving it off. Another option is to look up the character's hair color and hairstyle. With this research, you can buy a cosplay wig. This will make the cosplay more realistic, because the boys are not bald. However, if you are cosplaying Kyle, you could use a rubber cap because in the episode "Ginger Cow", Kyle shaves his hair off.

    Practice the way your favorite character speaks and gestures. Watch any episode of South Park to get the hang of it, and practice in front of a mirror.


Eric Cartman

  1. Wears a light blue cap with a yellow pompom and a red over sized sweater.
  2. Is notorious for his foul mouth and his obesity. Although he claims not to be overweight, but "big boned".
  3. Is also very spoiled and racist. Usually Kyle is the target of his racist attacks, because he is Jewish.

Kenny McCormick

  1. Wears an orange parka, the hood pulled tight around his face. This makes his speech hard to understand.
  2. Dies in almost all episodes of the first five series of South Park, only to resurrect in the next episode.
  3. Is the most educated in sexual matters. He often explains sexual terms to the other kids.

Kyle Broflovski

  1. Wears a green ushanka and an orange jacket.
  2. Is very skeptical, neurotic, and foul mouthed.
  3. Takes pride in being Jewish.

Stan Marsh

  1. Wears a blue cap with a red pompom and a brown jacket.
  2. Is generally friendly but can be up to mean things.
  3. Stands out as the most normal of the four. He is relatively quiet and good at sports.


  • Remember: if you do shave your hair, it will take a long time to grow back!


  • Rude and disrespectful behavior towards authority figures (parents/ guardians/ teachers/ police...) will get you detentions and/or groundings. Or worse...
