Madison Paige from Heavy Rain

Madison Paige (voiced by Judi Beecher) is one of the four playable characters in the video game Heavy Rain.  A journalist, Madison meets Ethan Mars while he is searching for his son, the latest victim of the Origami Killer.  Along with the other characters, her fate is determined by the player’s choices throughout the course of the game.  Madison wears several outfits in Heavy Rain, but her most memorable is probably the tight black skirt, red blouse, and black heels she wears to the Blue Lagoon.  Otherwise, she also dons dark jeans and a few different jackets.  So if short skirts aren’t you’re thing, pair a moto-style jacket with bootcut jeans and a short black wig and you’re ready to go.

Wild Woody

Wild Woody is the titular character of 1995 Sega video game.  Wild Woody must gather the scattered pieces of a totem pole by erasing enemies and creating sketches to help him in his quest.  To recreate this wacky pencil, you have two choices.  While pencil costumes do exist, few of them are oriented in the same way as Woody.  Still, you could get close by layering one over a black bodysuit and adding gloves and yellow sneakers.  If you’re up for something a little more impressionistic, you can layer a yellow sleeveless shirt and pink shorts over a bodysuit and then add a cone-shaped cap.  Give your pencil a nice sharp-looking tip by using a black fabric marker.  You can even add a silver belt to stand in as your eraser holder.

Mayor Regina Mills from Once Upon a Time

Regina Mills (played by Lana Parilla) is the Mayor of Storybrooke in the TV series Once Upon a Time.  Regina, who is later revealed to be the Evil Queen, has trapped fairy tale characters in this real-life town with no memory of who they truly are.  She is also the adoptive mother of Emma Swan‘s son Henry, and the half-sister of Zelena.  As Mayor, Regina dresses in professional-looking dresses and suits, often layered under smart-looking coats, likely due to the fact that Storybrooke is located in Maine.  To recreate Regina’s look, focus on flattering silhouettes and well-coifed hair, and don’t be afraid to pair it with a dark lip color.
