Women

Joan Holloway

The original queen bee of Sterling Cooper, Joan ran the secretarial pool with vicious efficiency. Although men concentrate on her va-va-voom image, she’s smarter than she lets on and isn’t above using sex appeal to advance her career. A smart move, it seems, as she’s gotten a partnership in the firm.

Betty Draper

With her Grace Kelly good looks, house in the suburbs, successful husband and two-point-three kids, Betty Draper was supposed to be the epitome of a 1960’s happy housewife. Too bad she and Don made each other so miserable. However, even after leaving him, Betty still struggles within the confines of conservative suburbia.

Lola

Run Lola Run stars Franka Potente as Lola who has 20 minutes to gather 100,000 German marks in order to save her boyfriend, Manni. The three different scenarios portrayed predict varying outcomes depending on who Lola runs into.

Peggy Olson

Starting out as Don Draper’s secretary, Peggy at first seemed like a typical shy, Catholic schoolgirl. But it rapidly became clear she had a talent and instinct for copy matched only by Don himself. Taken under his wing, she’s subsequently blossomed into a confident woman willing to pursue her own ambitions.

Catherine

Catherine is just your average 22-year-old spawn of Satan. What? That’s normal right? She made her debut in Atlus’ video game of the same name. Her sole purpose is to tempt men and get them to become unfaithful, so she can ultimately kill them. My type of girl. The hardest part of this costume is her trademark spiral hairstyle which can be completed with some wire work or a lot of hair gel and hairspray. Being a succubus never looked so good!

Vanellope von Schweetz

Also know as The Glitch, Vanellope von Schweetz is a computer programming error that leaves everything a pixellated mess in her wake. She’s determined to place in the Sugar Rush racing game, and just might do it with with the help of Wreck-It Ralph.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a 21-year-old woman who has been imprisoned in a town called Columbia since she was five years old. BioShock Infinite, the new game developed by Irrational Games, centers around a private investigator, Booker DeWitt, on a mission to retrieve Elizabeth from the flying city and save her from her captor: a monstrous, winged creature called the Songbird.

Daenerys Targaryen

In Game of Thrones, Daenerys Stormborn (Emilia Clarke) is heir to the Targaryen Dynasty, commander of the Dothraki army, and mother to three dragons. And she wants the Iron Throne back. Style your silver locks like hers by watching this video.

Michonne

Michonne roams the wasteland wielding a katana and two jawless zombies. But in a world where the slightest noise will attract hordes of walking dead, her greatest strength may be the lack of lines given to her in the script.

Marie Schrader

While Marie Schrader supposedly holds a job as a technician at a radiology center, she is best known for being a kleptomaniac with a penchant for all things purple. From her home decor to her wardrobe, if it is purple Marie probably owns it. Whether or not she obtained it lawfully is debatable.
