Rex from Airheads

Rex (played by Steve Buscemi) is the bassist for the Lone Rangers in the movie Airheads.  Rex along with his friends and bandmates Chazz and Pip holds a radio station hostage in a bid to have the band’s demo tape heard by producers.  Rex has many bad tattoos on his arms and wears black jeans with combat boots and a distressed “Road Kill Café” t-shirt.  If roadkill isn’t your thing, you could use any dark distressed t-shirt in your arsenal to evoke a similar effect.  If you choose to wear a fake goatee as part of your costume, make sure to get a good skin-safe adhesive like spirit gum as well as remover to ensure it looks great, but also doesn’t hurt coming off.

Yui from Sword Art Online

Yui (voiced by Ito Kanae and Stephanie Sheh) a supporting character in the anime series Sword Art Online. An A.I. designed to help monitor the mental health of users, Yui is adopted by Kirito and Asuna when they mistake her for a child-aged player lost in the game.  Yui has two primary costumes, a simple white dress with a bow around the middle, and a more complicated pixie-inspired outfit when she is fulfilling navigation duties in ALfheim Online.  Purchasing the pink cosplay dress can be pricey, and doesn’t come with the necessary accessories, so altering a medieval-inspired dress with an asymmetrical hem by removing the sleeves can help evoke the same look, if you’re willing to be a little crafty.  Similarly, stretchy pink bracelets can be worn to mimic Yui’s anklets.

Nick Ramos from Dead Rising 3

Nick Ramos from Dead Rising 3

With no memory of his past and few clues to go on, Nick (voiced by Andrew Lawrence) is one of the youngest and the most mysterious protagonists in the Dead Rising series. He also makes for a great cosplay with the exception of his weapon, the sledge saw, which takes a build all its own to replicate.

Sledge saw aside, a Nick Ramos cosplay is great for people who want something with reusable pieces. A set of coveralls with the sleeves torn off, workboots, and a patch is all you really need for the clothing. A tattoo pen lets you copy the “12” tattoo on his neck, finishing off the whole look.
