serial killer

Dr. Decker

Dr. Decker is the slasher villain of the cult classic fantasy/horror film Nightbreed (played by legendary horror director David Cronenberg) and the novel Cabal by Clive Barker of Hellraiser and Candyman fame. He is a serial killer psychologist who convinces his patients that they are serial killers before reporting them to the police and having them killed.

Leslie Vernon

Leslie Vernon is the focus and antagonist of the cult classic mockumentary comedy-horror Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. He is a wannabe serial killer inspired by the likes of Jason, Michael, and Freddy (who in this world really exist). What he lacks in physical power he makes up for in his cunning planning and setting up of traps for his would-be victims. Don’t forget to wear and tear his clothes. Leslie Vernon walks barefoot, so it’s recommended that you wear sandals when not posing for pictures. Black face paint for the black circles around his eyes.

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.

Hannibal

We all thought Anthony Hopkins’s Hannibal Lecter was the final word, but Mads Mikkelsen manages to take it to the next level in the NBC series Hannibal. His artful cooking and impeccable fashion sense are enough distraction that you’ll forget what he’s serving you for dinner…

Hannibal Lecter

Hannibal is a brilliant psychologist with a twisted psyche. He leads a double life as a cannabalistic serial killer, but he doesn’t let this interfere with his sophisticated and cultured personality. Instead, he prefers to eat his victims with fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Jigsaw

In Saw, John Kramer is a civil engineer dying from an inoperable brain tumor who decides to help others appreciate the value of life. Instead of giving them a pep talk however, he builds complex torture devices that they can only escape through self-sacrifice. Typical engineer.

American Psycho Patrick Bateman

Christian Bale plays Patrick Bateman, a wealthy investment banker whose life revolves around superficial excesses like restaurants and fashion. He leads a double life as a serial killer, but it’s his obsession with Huey Lewis & the News that truly makes him an American psycho.

Dexter Morgan

A blood splatter analyst by day and a serial killer by night, Dexter Morgan walks the line between super villain and superhero. Whether you see his lifestyle choice as good or evil, you can’t deny he looks good doing it.
