Russell Adler from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Bruce Thomas voices the role of Russell Adler.  Adler is a CIA agent tasked with finding and stopping a Soviet agent named Perseus.  Adler’s look is quintessential ’80s cool, including square aviator glasses and a light brown leather jacket.  If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can also use a scar wax kit to recreate Adler’s distinctive facial scarring.

Pietro from WandaVision

Pietro’s appearance in WandaVision was one of the biggest shocks in a show built on leaving the viewers confused. And just like everything else in the show, his appearance brought more questions than it answered. The biggest of which was why Evan Peters’ Pietro showed up at Wanda’s door and not the brother she actually lost who was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

While Quicksilver’s face might be what Marvel fans expected, his Halloween costume was at least close. Based off his original comic costume, it’s just what you’d expect a speedster to throw together on the fly. The best part is that it’s easy to put together your own too!

Denim cutoffs (made using the jeans listed above) layered over blue compression pants match the blue long sleeve shirt worn under a blue short sleeve shirt and make up the majority of the costume. The silver lightning bolt on Pietro’s chest can be copied with iron-on reflective silver tape while hair gel styles a grey wig into the wings he styled his own hair into. Finish off the look with a white belt and white running shows and you’re ready to go!

Leonard Shelby from Memento

Leonard Shelby (played by Guy Pearce) is the main character in Christopher Nolan’s 2000 film Memento.  Leonard suffers from anterograde amnesia, meaning he is incapable of making new memories.  As he searches for the man who killed his wife, Leonard must rely on Polaroid photos and the tattoos he has in order to remember the facts of the case.  In the film, Leonard uses a Polaroid SLR 680 camera.  Unfortunately, this particular model is difficult to find and extremely expensive when you do.  But any Polaroid camera would certainly help elevate the costume and provide a fun way to record your evening.

Travis from Disjointed

Travis from Disjointed

Travis (played by Aaron Moten) is the co-owner of Ruth’s Alternative Caring. He’s the most forward-thinking of the group and for good reason: he has an MBA. And while his mom might not pay much attention to it, Travis uses it to help out the dispensary in every way he can. His business ideas really put Ruth’s on the map.

Travis has a really laid back sense of fashion. To cosplay as him you’ll want a comfortable button down that you roll at your elbows. Layer a t-shirt under that and a pair of jeans with nice shoes that are also comfortable. Print up a business plan and keep it handy, too!

Invisible Woman from The Fantastic 4

Invisible Woman from The Fantastic Four

Sue’s power is invisibility.

cruella de vil from cruella

Cruella de Vil from Cruella

Emma Stone takes on the titular role of the iconic Disney villain Cruella de Vil in the live action movie Cruella.  The film is an origin story, tracing Cruella’s beginnings to 1970s London where she was once a young fashion designer named Estella before she became obsessed with using the fur of dogs in her clothing creations–especially Dalmatians.  Cruella’s costuming is exceptional, as is to be expected of such an iconic and fashionable character since her debut in 1961’s 101 Dalmatians.  Whether you choose to emulate Estella’s redheaded beginnings, or go full villain with Cruella’s signature black and white locks, try to focus on the overall silhouette rather than getting the pieces exactly right.  And don’t forget to bring her signature attitude… brilliant, bad, and a little bit mad.

ruth langmore from ozark

Ruth Langmore from Ozark

Ruth Langmore (played by Julia Garner) is a trusted employee and confidante of Marty Byrde on the Netflix show Ozark.  Despite her young age, Ruth is a sharp and indispensable addition to Marty’s operations.  She also undergoes one of the more obvious character transformations on the show, beginning as part of an antagonistic small-time crime family who attempts to undermine Marty’s business, to a powerful part of his global operation.  Ruth’s clothing choices evolve with her character, from favoring comfortable jeans and layers in earlier seasons to a more polished professional look that favors high-waisted skirts and tucked blouses when she takes over daily operations of the Byrdes’ gambling boat enterprise.

Washini from Aggretsuko

Washimi from Aggretsuko

Washimi (voiced by Komegumi Koiwasaki in the original Japanese and Tara Platt in the English dub) is a secretary bird who is, fittingly, the secretary for the president of Chalaryman Trading Company. She is no-nonsense hard-kicking pragmatist who balances the more flighty natures of her two best friends Gori and Retsuko. That’s not to say she doesn’t have a soft side, though. You just have to get close to see it!

To cosplay as Washimi you’ll want to start with a white wig that is long enough to style back with silver hair pins that mimic her feathers. A white shirt and blazer pair with a black pencil skirt and yellow leggings to set up her work style. And, finally, yellow pumps finish off the look.
