M’aiq the Liar from Skyrim

A nomadic member of the lion-esque Khajiit race in the internationally popular video game series Elder Scrolls, M’aiq is a witty, cheeky cat that loves to chat. Players randomly discover him along the road, doling out misinformation on a range of topics from nudity to profundity. The game creators originally added M’aiq as an easter egg to add commentary about the series, and he has been in Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim and Elder Scrolls Online. This guide is for his Skyrim outfit, which looks like a cross between Shaolin and Christian monks.

An immortal, evil sorcerer who delights in causing death and devastation, The Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) is the powerful villain in the 2017 movie adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Dark Tower.

Jake dresses like all other boys his age do, in a casual hoodie, jeans and plaid shirt.

Nardole

The endearing, cowardly Nardole (Matt Lucas) was a brief companion of the 12th Doctor on the BBC TV series Doctor Who. Originally an employee of the Doctor’s wife, River Song, Nardole lost his head in an attempt to discover River’s whereabouts but was reassembled by the Doctor. The two joined forces for a short while, and then Nardole made a courageous decision that lead him down a different path. Nardole dresses in a distinctive, goofy outfit of burnt orange coat, beanie and glasses.

Jamie Fraser

The chivalrous, handsome Scottish Highlander who rescues Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) after she falls through a time portal in the Starz TV series Outlander, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) selflessly offers to marry her in order to protect her from the villain Randall. He and Claire fall in love, despite her being from the future and already having a husband. Throughout the series he endures great hardships because of his love for her, yet it never wanes. As a true Scotsman, he wears traditional highland clothing.

Claire Randall

Originally an ex-army nurse from the 1940’s, Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) visits Scotland on a second honeymoon with her husband and accidentally walks through a time portal to the 1700’s on the smash Starz series Outlander. When she stumbles through the portal, Scotland is in the midst of the Jacobite Uprising. She is promptly rescued by a dashing, handsome Highlander named Jamie Fraser. Claire must decide whether to stay with Jamie or return to her husband, all the while navigating personal and world dramas. This guide is for her iconic first episode outfit, a classic 1940’s look.

Ashlidr

Ashildr

Originally a Viking child encountered by the 12th Doctor on the BBC series Doctor Who, Ashildr (Maisie Williams) became immortal after the Doctor resurrected her from death. She took advantage of her immortality, traveling the world and assuming many aliases – so many that she eventually took the simple name “Me”. She lives to the end of time and then, due to the wonderfully pliable time laws of Doctor Who, encounters the Doctor once again. This is for her outfit in the episode ‘Face the Raven’, when she is mayor of a London town inhabited by aliens. For the tattoos, use body paint or a handy eyeliner pencil.
