Violet Song Jat Shariff

In Ultraviolet, set in a world in which vampires exist due to a disease called hemoglophagia, Violet Song Jat Shariff (Milla Jovovich) is part of the underground resistance fighting in the Blood Wars. The government is rounding up the vampires – called homophages – in order to kill or experiment upon them. Violet has a violent and bloody history with those she battles, having lost both a husband and child to them. This guide covers her red leather outfit that nearly covers her from head to toe to protect her from the sun.

The Red Queen

A moniker for the cutting-edge AI system within Umbrella Corporation’s bio-weaponry facility The Hive, the Red Queen causes the entire series of events in the film Resident Evil. After an outbreak of the zombie-causing T-virus occurs within The Hive, the Red Queen initiates a lock-down and will not allow anything living to escape The Hive. She is modeled after the lead programmer’s daughter, appearing as a completely red little girl in the first movie and then as a full-color holographic girl dressed in red in the sequels.

Mal

Existing only as a figment of her husband’s memory in the film Inception, Mal (Marion Cotillard) is nevertheless an extremely powerful and often damaging presence. She and her husband, Dominic Cobb, excelled in the manipulation of people’s minds. Unfortunately, they pushed the limits of their abilities too far and Mal lost the ability to differentiate between reality and dreams. This guide is for her pivotal windowsill gown, a deep purple dress with heels.

Ariadne

An architecture student in France, Ariadne (Ellen Page) is recruited by Dominic Cobb as part of a team assigned to complete an inception, or the planting of an idea in someone’s mind. She possesses brilliant architectural design abilities, creating the subconscious maps through which the team navigates in the movie Inception. Ariadne is also the only one who calls out Dominic on his erratic mental state that could endanger the entire team. She dresses like a normal college student, but with an extra fashionable French flair.

James Bond

James Bond, code-named 007, is the dashing MI-6 hero of over 20 films, books and video games starting with Dr. No in 1962. Since then the actors playing Bond have changed, the enemies have switched geographical locations and the gadgets have become wickedly high-tech, but Bond’s go-to outfit remains the same: a snazzy black tuxedo and trusty Walther PPK. Finish off the look of this charming, rakish lady-lover with a big watch, hair gel and a martini – shaken, not stirred.

Dominic Cobb

Dominic Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) from the movie Inception is a skilled Extractor – someone who slips into peoples’ dreams, steals their secrets and sells them to competitors. He used to extract legally, but now he is a fugitive wanted for his wife Mal’s murder. Despite his fugitive status, a company hires him to perform an inception, or the placement of an idea into a person’s mind. He agrees, but he and his team must battle both inner and outer demons to succeed. He dresses well in trousers, button-downs and leather jackets, his trusty spinning top always in his pocket.

Spence Parks

A covert security guard for the Umbrella Corporation placed to protect the emergency exit of a facility called The Hive, Spence Parks (James Purefoy) wakes with his cover-wife Alice inside their mansion with no memory of who he is. From there he embarks on a whirl-wind adventure in the film Resident Evil, battling zombies and slowly coming to remember his past – and what he’s done. He dresses simply in a tee and jeans, but you can make it pop with some fake blood and a few zombie bite marks.

Rain Ocampo

Rain Ocampo (Michelle Rodriguez) is a special forces commando for the Umbrella Corporation in the first installment of the Resident Evil film series. Called in after the advanced computer AI nicknamed the Red Queen initiated a lock down, Rain along with her team must battle a horde of zombies within a bio-weaponry facility called The Hive in Raccoon City. In the first movie, she wears thick long-sleeved tactical gear that comes in handy when zombies are after her flesh.

Duo Maxwell

The class clown and best pilot of his group, Duo Maxwell helms the gundam Deathsythe on the anime TV series Gundam Wing. An orphan raised by the Maxwell church, he is the most personable, lively and ‘human’ of the pilots. Calling himself “shinigami”, or ‘the god of death’, he is always willing to come to the aid of his friends and shies away from no fight. He wears his hair in a signature long braid and dresses in a vintage jodhpurs outfit that bears hints of his religious upbringing.

Alice from Resident Evil

Placed in a mansion to guard the emergency exit of Umbrella Corporation’s bio-weaponry facility called The Hive, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is a covert security officer in the movie Resident Evil and its sequels. In the first installment she suffers from amnesia for most of the film, gradually regaining memories as she fights to survive a zombie-infested Hive in Raccoon City. This guide covers her iconic first film outfit, a red dress with combat boots.
