Sister Jude from American Horror Story: Asylum

Sister Jude wasn’t always managing a mental institution with an iron fist. The vicious nun used to wow audiences as a nightclub singer. This sultry history makes her a great character to cosplay but make sure you stick with a red chemise. Otherwise people will think you’re the standard “sexy” nun.

Angel of Death from American Horror Story: Asylum

The Angel of Death doesn’t fit the dark cloak and scythe stereotypes we’re all used to. In fact, the bearer of bad news, or good if you’re a patient at Briarcliff, has a lot of style. From her pillbox hat to red lipstick, the Angel of Death could easily pass as a 1940’s grieving housewife if it wasn’t for the black feathered wings.

Ziggy Stardust

David Bowie took fashion to a new level when he unveiled his alter-ego Ziggy Stardust. Part rock star, part alien-being, it takes more than just a colorful unitard and elaborate makeup to pull off this look. You need the confidence to go along with it. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt if you can sing.

Lydia Deetz

Lydia Deetz’s style is all but strange and unusual. She keeps it simple by dressing in all black and minimal make up. The hardest part to replicate may actually be her bangs. We can’t guarantee this look will attract a bio-exorcist but you can always try saying his name three times.

Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

Sally may be stuffed with dead leaves but she has managed to put together a pretty decent wardrobe for herself. She can even stitch her body parts back together. Don’t worry, you don’t need real stitches to imitate Sally’s style. A body marker and a steady hand will have you looking like a mad scientist’s prized possession in no time.

Macho Man Randy Savage

Macho Man Randy Savage wore a variety of colorful costumes during his career as a professional wrestler. From his tassel covered suits and cowboy hats to the simple star covered pink trunks, the raspy voiced entertainer was always a sight to behold. Even if you’re not a fan of wrestling you’re probably guilty of saying “Snap into a Slim Jim” at least once while passing a Slim Jim display. It’s okay, we’ve all done it. Ooooh yeah!

Rey Mysterio

The high flying, Rey Mysterio may be small in stature but he’s a big presence in the world of wrestling. Bringing the fun of lucha libre back to the ring, the masked wrestler has become a figure who kids and adults want to replicate. Of course wearing a luchador mask doesn’t mean you’ll be able to imitate the moves. That requires practice.

Otho Fenlock

In Beetlejuice, Otho Fenlock is a man of many talents. He has a background in chemistry, interior design and paranormal investigation. He’s also a suave dresser. By pairing solid color suits with flashy ties you can be as fashionable as Otho. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to conjure any ghosts.

10 Lame Costumes from Comic Book Movies

Hollywood loves adapting popular comic books into live action films. Unfortunately, Tinseltown doesn’t always hit the mark when it comes […]

Willy Wonka

Willy Wonka’s personality was dark compared to his style. The dry-humored genius’ wardrobe is as colorful as his chocolate factory and you don’t need a golden ticket to get it. An over-sized purple blazer and brown top hat make it easy for people to guess who your style icon is. We suggest you leave the candy at home, unless you want people to think you’re creepy.
