Gollum from Lord of the Rings

Sauron’s Ring of Power changed many hands throughout the centuries, until one fateful day, it ended up in the grubby hands of Gollum (Andy Serkis). The Ring corrupted him, mind and body, but added years to his already miserable life, and Gollum grew addicted to the power it granted him until one day, a Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins made Gollum quit cold turkey. As a result, Gollum swore revenge against the Bagginses, including Bilbo’s nephew Frodo.

Kasie Hines from NCIS

Kasie Hines from NCIS

When Pauley Perrette’s Abby Sciuto departed from the cast of NCIS, Kasie Hines (played by Diona Reasonover) took over as the new forensic scientist. Kasie’s outfits tend to have bright, eye-catching, but coordinating colors, combining preppiness with a touch of whimsy. She may have some big boots to fill (although she seems to be going for comfy Vans sneakers, personally), but she lends her own spin on a quirky demeanor and fashion sense that is all too familiar yet refreshingly different at once.

Luke Triton from Professor Layton

Luke Triton from Professor Layton

Luke Triton is a fixture of the Professor Layton game series, always standing by the eponymous professor’s side as he leaves no puzzle unsolved! As Professor Layton’s self-proclaimed apprentice, young Luke dives deep into learning about detective work and what it means to be a true gentleman. Luke’s outfit from the first trilogy of Layton mysteries emphasizes his youthfulness, with drooping suspenders and a retro newsboy cap. The addition of a crossbody bag makes this costume especially convention-friendly!

Professor Layton from the Professor Layton games

Professor Hershel Layton from the Professor Layton Series

Professor Hershel Layton’s past is shrouded in plenty of mystery, but what we know for sure about him is that he personifies true gentlemanliness – a trait he tries to reinforce in his young apprentice and assistant, Luke Triton. Whether he’s solving puzzles (“A true gentleman leaves no puzzle unsolved!”) or exploring unusual locales across Europe, Professor Layton can rarely be found without his signature top hat and suit. You, too, can now dress like a true gentleman!

Yato from Noragami

Yato from Noragami

“Toss a coin to your wannabe god of fortune, happiness, and war,” says nobody ever, but that doesn’t stop Yato from giving his aspiration the old college try. This Noragami protagonist’s sense of fashion is contemporary for the time – in the present day, he sports a comfortable tracksuit, practical boots, and a funky gray-blue scarf (that’s supposedly an old bath towel). We eventually learn that Yato’s scared stiff that everyone will forget him, so let’s memorialize this character by re-creating his most popular outfit.
