The Spirit from Dead by Daylight

Rin Yamaoka was the descendant of a samurai clan and a Kendo champion.  Rin’s ancestor Kazan is also a killer in the Dead by Daylight game.  After being murdered by her father, she swore vengeance against him. The Entity used her fury and hatred of her father to turn her into a killer for its never-ending games of cat-and-mouse. As the Spirit, she appears blueish in color, with white bandages and shards of glass embedded in her body. You can use a traditional sarashi or white gauze bandages to recreate her costume, and follow an FX makeup tutorial such as this one to add the glass details. Her shattered katana blade may be made by either breaking a prop katana, or carefully painting one to make it appear broken.

Mikaela Reid from Dead by Daylight

Mikaela Reid is the newest survivor in Dead by Daylight. A young witch with the gift of clairvoyance, she has visions of the horror of the Entity, before being pulled into its realm and thrown into the never-ending games of life and death. Fortunately, she still has some magic and can use it to see things others can’t and to bless boon totems, giving herself and her fellow survivors the strength they need to survive. She arrives in Dead by Daylight on October 19th.

David King from Dead by Daylight

A former rich kid, rugby player, underground fighter, and debt collector, David King now uses his tolerance for pain and willingness to fight for others to survive killers in Dead by Daylight.  Born as the only son of a wealthy family, David squandered much of his potential because of his combative nature.  When he mysteriously disappeared, no one who knew him was all that surprised, but they never could have guessed that he was now fighting for his life against killers looking to sacrifice him to the Entity.

Feng Min from Dead by Daylight

Feng Min is a professional gamer from Dead by Daylight.  After burning out and falling into a string of substance abuse issues (accompanied by parents who never approved of her career), she found herself in the Realm of the Entity and is now focused on winning, no matter the cost.  Finding an exact match for Feng’s outfit would be almost impossible, but by choosing a printed athletic polo and using some matching fabric paint on the white contrast trim of a pair of black shorts, you can evoke the same feel.  If you’re not up for painting, a plain pair of black bike shorts would also suffice.

the legion - frank and julie - from dead by daylight

The Legion (Frank and Julie) from Dead by Daylight

In the game Dead by Daylight, the Legion is a killer that consists of four teenagers, Frank, Julie, Susie, and Joey.  Frank Morrison was a promising high school athlete, but he was kicked out of school after he attacked a referee at a game.  After bouncing around several foster homes, Frank ended up in the small town of Ormond where he met Julie Kostenko who saw him as her ticket out of her hometown.  Frank and Julie also hung out with Susie and Joey, and the foursome began vandalizing and robbing as a hobby before they committed a murder during a break in, which sealed to their fate as killers for the Entity.  Frank and Julie’s costumes are very similar, so it could be fun to use these two as a basis for a couple’s costume or as part of a larger group of four.

The Hag from Dead by Daylight

As a young girl, Lisa Sherwood was kidnapped by a village of cannibals. After being chained to a wall and slowly eaten for weeks, she broke free and ate her former captors alive. As the Hag, she sacrifices survivors to the Entity in the game Dead by Daylight, though she also occasionally eats them. The Hag’s costume is simple, but some patience will be required in order to apply the body paint necessary to achieve the finished look.
