SCP 1471-A from SCP Containment

SCP 1471-A from SCP Containment Breach

SCP 1471 is a mysterious app that, once downloaded, eventually leads to the user seeing SCP 1471-A, a humanoid wolf creature with a skull for a face and creepy, milk-white eyes.  While SCP 1471-A’s true intentions are not fully understood, it is generally considered best to avoid it in the game SCP: Containment Breach.  To create an SCP 1471-A costume, you will need an animal skull mask, tattered wolf ears attached to a messy black wig, and wolf-like hands and feet.  While the game version shows SCP 1471-A dressed in black shirt and pants, there are many interpretations of its clothing, though its costume almost always includes rope tied around the waist like a belt.

hannah montana character

Hannah Montana

Hannah Montana was the celebrity persona/alter ego of pop singer Miley Cyrus. She had her own show on Disney Channel, which revolved around Miley Stewart, a normal high schooler, by day and Hannah, a teen pop sensation, by night.  Some of her famous songs include “Best of Both Worlds,” “Rock Star,” and “Nobody’s Perfect.” Her massive success resulted in two movies: one following her concert and the other as a conclusion to the show. She is known for her signature blonde wig. Later on, she made music as both Hannah and Miley, before just going by Miley. This makes a great throwback or Disney nostalgia costume.

Soul of Cinder from Dark Souls

Soul of Cinder from Dark Souls

In Dark Souls, the Soul of Cinder is a being made up of all previous lords of Cinder. This not only makes it incredibly hard to beat but also terrifying to behold. Getting the exact look takes some painting skill and possibly wearable pyrotechnics (which we really don’t recommend).  But we’ve found pieces that will get you close!

To start you’ll want a black compression shirt and compression pants. They’re tight fitting and breathable so your clothes won’t get twisted up under your armor and you won’t overheat too quickly. On top of that you’ll want a set of knight’s armor, though we recommend plastic over metal for ease of movement. You’ll also need a set of swords to deal with the challengers you’re sure to encounter. If you’ve got a bit of extra money to spend you can get a Cinder replica helmet. They aren’t easily affordable, however, and with some paint a standard knight helmet should do the trick. And finally a can of chalky gray spray paint topped with an oxidizing effects paint kit should help give your armor the eternally burned look Soul of Cinder is known for.

Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog

Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog

Tails is Sonic the Hedgehog’s faithful sidekick. The two have been through so many adventures together that listing them all here – or the voice actors, artists, and writers involved – would create a book! Needless to say Tails always has Sonic’s back and this costume will always have yours!

There are a few ways to cosplay as Tails. The first uses body paint and clothes you might find in your closet to create the color of Tails’ fur. The other uses an orange body suit and white felt for Tails’ body and face paint to create his orange and white facial features.

Both looks require white gloves, slouchy white socks, red and a white sneakers, and – of course – two tails in addition to an orange wig and fox ears.
