DIO From Stardust Crusaders

Considered one of the most iconic (and quotable) villains of modern times, DIO is a ruthless vampire and is the main villain of the whole JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series. This guide is based on his appearance in Part 3, Stardust Crusaders. A flamboyant but chiseled beast, DIO starts the series as an abused British brat. However, after securing the Stone Mask, he gains immortality as a vampire. DIO continues to torment the Joestar family nearly a century later, and his actions affect the whole franchise. Be sure to cut DIO’s jacket to proper size (about ribcage level) and cut a whole for his bulge in his pants. Red Cape optional. Use the green fabric to make DIO’s two hanging belts as well as the hearts on his headband, belt, and knees. Don’t forget the three dots on DIO’s left earlobe,

Daisuke Jigen

Traveling across the globe, Jigen has garnered fame as a gunman with a wildly capable speed and accuracy. Crown optional for Castle of Cagliostro fans.

Kuroo Tetsurō

In Haikyu!!, Kuroo Tetsurō is a third year student at Nekoma High and captain of the volleyball team. He has a laid back but sly personality, and is known to provoke his opponents, earning him the nickname Scheming Captain.

Inspector Zenigata

Inspector Zenigata is the rival of Arsène Lupin III from the long running anime/manga/movie series Lupin III. He is an Interpol agent who is charged with arresting Lupin and his crew, but they are always outsmarting him.

Hinata Shoyo

In the manga and anime series Haikyu!!, Hinata Shoyo is a first year student at Karasuno High and a member of the school’s volleyball team. He has a cheerful and exuberant personality, which he uses to win others over. He tends to do poorly in classes due to his focus on volleyball.

Arataka Reigen

Arataka Reigen is Mob Kageyama’s mentor and boss from the anime/manga Mob Psycho 100 created by One Punch Man creator ONE. He is the self-proclaimed “Greatest Psychic of the 21st Century” as well as owner and operator of the Spirits and Such Consultation Office. Though not a real Psychic, he is a master at conning others and faking a business. Despite his dishonesty, Reigen is a kind hearted and well meaning mentor to Mob, and he gives Mob guidelines to live life as a normal kid despite having immense power. He is hardly ever seen without his trusty Mob by his side, so it’s wise to make this a partner cosplay.

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.
