Sarah Sanderson from Hocus Pocus

Amuck amuck amuck! Sarah Sanderson (Sarah Jessica Parker) is an antagonist in Hocus Pocus. As the youngest of the Sanderson sisters, she is ditzy yet flirtatious. Her unique power is her siren like singing voice. Some makeup tutorials use dark purple lipstick but we went with red to match her sisters. We added fake spiders, her favorite snack, as they’re cheap and show commitment to the character! Just make sure to only chew, not swallow!

Disco Janet The Good Place

Disco Janet from The Good Place

“What it is, what it is!” Disco Janet is another iteration of Janet from The Good Place. Although no one knows their purpose or where they come from. Their void consists of a dance party with a nonstop record of 70s hits. When marbleized, they are trapped in a disco ball. Disco Janet gives Chidi a pair of roller skates, to which they say “solid.” We have only seen one Disco Janet in the series, which might imply there’s a Disco Place. Every iteration of Janet is played by D’Arcy Carden.

Carlton Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Carlton Banks from Fresh Prince of Bel Air

In the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Carlton Banks (Alfonso Ribeiro) is Will Smith’s rational yet cocky cousin. In spite of his wealth, he has little success with women. Sometimes his selfish attitude can clash with Will’s more laidback approach, but he’s still his best friend. His style is preppy and conservative, and you can’t go wrong with a cardigan and sweater vest. And of course patterned pants, as per the 90s. Once you’ve assembled your costume, do the Carlton dance!
