The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man is the name given to the protagonists of H.G. Wells’s sci-fi novel of the same name and the classic Universal Studios horror movie franchise that spawned from it. Besides that, similar characters have appeared in numerous other media, such as the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics and a stage play. Since there have been many people to take up the mantle, designs vary. Feel free to mix and match different articles of clothing. Personally, I like to use Solar Shields when I dress as him as opposed to Victorian sunglasses, because they look like goggles worn in more contemporary depictions, have side lenses like the 19th century sunglasses worn in the classic films, and are large enough to cover my eyeglasses.

Shigeo “Mob” Kageyama

Mob is the protagonist of the MOB PSYCHO 100 webcomic and anime series. He is an 8th grader with strong psychic abilities. He hides his emotions to keep his powers in check, and he rarely uses them. He works alongside Reigen, professional con artist and self proclaimed psychic expert. Together the two serve as the cheapest but strangely most efficient exorcism team in Japan. When Mob’s percentage reaches 100, he ‘explodes’, resulting in spiky hair and uncontrollable anger. Spiked wig optional for this version of Mob.

Mob Psycho 100 is from the same creator as One-Punch Man which means it can make for a cool duo cosplay.

Robert E.O. Speedwagon

Robert Edward O. Speedwagon is one of the major allies in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 1: Phantom Blood and Part 2: Battle Tendency. He starts the series as a street urchin but quickly becomes Jonathan Joestar’s closest friend. Eventually he forms the Speedwagon Foundation, which assists the Joestar family even after his death from Part 2 to Part 6. Initially a comic relief character, he grows into arguably the most loyal and important side character in the whole franchise. He even plays a key role in the video game spin off JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven and is playable in it. Because of all this, he is universally beloved in the fandom and he makes for an easy beginner JoJo cosplay. Could go nicely with a Young Jonathan Joestar cosplay

For hats you can choose his default bowler hat (with 3 red feathers on the left side) from the first half of Part 1 or the Zeppeli hat from the second half. To make Zeppeli hat, combine checker fabric with stovepipe hat.
Sledge hammer optional.

The Re-Animator

Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs), also known as the Re-Animator, is the villain of the cult classic 80s comedy-horror film “Re-Animator”, its sequels, and its 2011 stage musical, all based on HP Lovecraft’s short story “Herbert West–Reanimator”. He also was the subject in the Dynamite Comics series “Re-Animator” and even crossed paths with Ash Williams from Evil Dead in the Army of Darkness Vs Re-Animator comic series (An fun idea for a pair cosplay). Chemistry tubes/head optional. Bring “life” to any party in this gross out costume!

Young Jonathan Joestar

Young Jonathan Joestar is the child version of the first protagonist of the long running action manga/anime series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Danny plush optional, but keep him away from any bitter blonde stepbrothers!
