WWII Captain America

In Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) receives an experimental serum, with the aid of Peggy Carter, to transform his frail body into the peak of human ability in order to contribute to the US’s war effort. After a military mission, he’s made to don this colorful costume and tour the country to raise war bonds. Put into a deep sleep for 70 years, it’s not until he awakens to Nick Fury in present time that he puts away this vintage outfit for the Captain America costume we’re all familiar with.

The Human Spider

In Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) starts off with his newfound superpowers not by fighting crime and saving lives, but fighting in a wrestling cage match to win some money. With his homemade costume, he fights as The Human Spider, facing off against Bonesaw McGray (portrayed by Randy Savage). He looks just a bit amateur compared to when he wears the Spider-Man costume made for him by Tony Stark.

Moana

Moana Waialiki is the strong-willed daughter of a Polynesian chieftain. When fish become scarce and the coconuts begin to spoil on the island, Moana insists on exploring beyond the reef to find more fish.

Angela Hayes from American Beauty

In American Beauty, Angela Hayes (Mena Suvari) is a high school cheerleader. She is the object of infatuation from her friend’s dad Lester Burnham, who is experiencing a midlife crisis. In his fantasy, she reveals what she’s got underneath her cheerleading uniform, and it’s a whole lot of roes petals.

The Spirit

The Spirit is a fictional masked crimefighter created by cartoonist Will Eisner. He’s a masked vigilante who fights crime with the blessing of the city’s police. I recommend finding a way to make your tie stick out to the side, probably by putting a wire into it.

Aaron Boone

Aaron Boone is the protagonist of Clive Barker’s cult classic fantasy/horror film Nightbreed, based on his novel Cabal. Suffering from nightmares of monsters, he discovers an underground city called Midian, and he is reborn a monster. Now he must protect this world and become its new leader, Cabal.

Spartacus

Spartacus was a Thracian gladiator who led a major slave rebellion across the Roman Republic. He was portrayed by Kirk Douglas in a 1960 Stanley Kubrick film, and more recently by the late Andy Whitfield and Liam McIntyre in the Starz television series.

Worf

In Star Trek: The Next Generation, Worf (Michael Dorn) is the no-nonsense chief of security aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. As a Klingon, his weapon of choice is a Bat’Leth axe, and his fashion accessory of choice is the ornamental baldric sash worn over his shoulder.

They Live Alien

They Live is an action horror film from John Carpenter in which a drifer finds out a large percentage of the American population who hold power are actually aliens, and that all written text really say subliminal messages such as “OBEY” or “STAY ASLEEP”. Best done in groups. Recommended you make an “OBEY” picket sign.

Pinhead

Pinhead is main villain and leader of the Cenobites from the Hellraiser film series, based on the book The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker. While there are Pinhead masks for sale, I believe none of them do true justice to the character and that he is best shown through make-up. Listed here are the basic requirements, but for little details and how to actually create Pinhead’s face I highly recommend watching this excellent Pinhead make-up tutorial
