Hero Boy from The Polar Express

Hero Boy (also known as Chris and voiced by Daryl Sabara as a child and Tom Hanks as an adult) is the narrator of both the book and the movie The Polar Express. Though Chris is losing his faith in Christmas he is still holding out hope for the magic he once felt for the holiday. All it takes is a trip on the Polar Express to reignite the spark.

There are a couple of options when it comes to cosplaying Hero Boy. His yellow pajamas are a little hard to come by so you can either grab a pair of gold pajamas for men or a pair of yellow women’s pajamas. Both are fairly unisex in cut so it comes down to whichever would be more comfortable.

Throw on a blue robe and slip into a pair of brown leather loafers. Grab your ticket and you’re ready to ride The Polar Express!

Sango from InuYasha

In the anime InuYasha, Sango (voiced by Houku Kuwashima in Japanese and Kelly Sheridan in English) is a powerful demon slayer who teams up with Miroku, Inuyasha, and Kagome.  Sango eventually falls in love with and marries Miroku.  Sango wears two distinct outfits, her pink and green kimono and her black and pink demon slaying uniform.  Her signature weapon is Hiraikotsu, a giant boomerang made from the purified bones of demons.  A replica of this weapon may be somewhat expensive, but it will truly elevate your costume.  If you are crafty, perhaps you can even make your own!

M. Jean from The Grand Budapest Hotel

M. Jean from The Grand Budapest Hotel

M. Jean (played by Jason Schwartzman) does not have a large role in The Grand Budapest Hotel. But the size of his role does not change how important he is in the film. M. Jean is a direct contrast to Bill Murray’s M. Ivan and Ralph Fiennes’ M. Gustave. Whereas the older men did their job with polish and pride, M. Jean seems to do his job simply because it is his job. The pins on his lapels mark him as a member of The Society of the Crossed Keys but he does not have the same polish as either Ivan or Gustave. And that is the point.

Because M. Jean represents the less splendorous present life of The Gran Budapest, his uniform is much simpler than the men that came before him. He wears a simple purple suit with a red tie and white undershirt. Black dress shoes round out the clothing while a thin mustache and a cigarette complete his appearance. And, of course, the pins signifying his membership in The Society of the Crossed Keys.

Rodrick Heffley

Miroku from InuYasha

Miroku (voiced by Kōji Tsujitani in the Japanese and Kirby Morrow in the English) is a monk and an ally of Inuyasha and Kagome, in the anime series InuYasha. Miroku is the current wielder of the Kazaana or Wind Tunnel, a curse that manifests as a black hole in his right hand.  Miroku seals the Wind Tunnel with arm coverings and his prayer beads.  Miroku falls in love with and eventually marries Sango, a Demon Slayer.  Finding purple monk’s robes is almost impossible, but some clever folding and tying of a large tablecloth can help evoke the same effect.

Professor Paradox from Ben 10

Professor Paradox (voiced by David McCallum) is a time travelling professor on the Cartoon Network show Ben 10.  Professor Paradox forgot his true name long ago and adopted his current moniker after escaping from an alternate reality.  Professor Paradox has two main costumes; a simple modern design with a lab coat, green goggles, brown vest, black tie and slacks, and then a more elaborate look that includes a metal gauntlet, riding boots, and walking stick.  Both designs use the black pants and vest, and you can add accessories to these pieces in order to emulate the version you are interested in replicating.
