Major Bedhead from The Big Comfy Couch

Major Bedhead (Fred Stinson) is a recurring character on The Big Comfy Couch, a Canadian children’s show from the 90s. He is a clown who delivers the mail on his unicycle. He stops by to give Loonette postcards from her Auntie Macassar or Uncle Chester. However, he comes off as quite irresponsible for spending so much time chatting with Loonette and Granny Garbanzo and not delivering packages. Goofy yet clumsy, Major Bedhead possesses many clowning skills such as juggling and pogo sticking. His pet peeves are lying and dishonesty.

Lion from Steven Universe

Lion is a recurring character in the Cartoon Network show, Steven Universe, whom once belonged to Rose Quartz. When Lion died, Rose was able to resurrect him through her healing powers, resulting in his pink fur and magical abilities. Such magical abilities include a pocket dimension, portal creation, and a loud, powerful roar. Eventually Steven finds Lion and befriends him too, making him an ally of the Crystal Gems. Use the pale pink face paint all over your face, and then burgundy face paint to draw the heart shaped nose. While we couldn’t find a pink lion’s mane, it only requires a bit of DIY. For the mane, get some hot glue and adhere the craft fur around the circumference of the cat ear headband. Attach a tuft of that fur to the end of the cat tail and you’re all set!

In Avengers: Endgame, Valkyrie survived the snap and helped relocate the Asgardians. Later on she led the Asgardians in the battle against Thanos. Thor then appointed her as the new leader and king of Asgard. To achieve her look from Thor: Ragnarok, style your hair into a half updo top knot.
