Nico Di Angelo from Percy Jackson

Nico Di Angelo is a character in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books written by Rick Riordan. He is a half-blood, specifically the son of Hades. Upon first appearing in The Titan’s Curse, Nico is a curious and nerdy kid who enjoys collecting Mythomagic figures. Once he regains his memories and discovers his parentage, he casts aside his childhood interests and becomes more reserved. His powers are the most fearsome of any demigod. At the end of the series, he comes out and starts dating Will Solace. Nico doesn’t appear in the movie or musical adaptation, so this costume guide is based on the book’s descriptions. Use light makeup to make yourself paler and black eyeshadow to sink in your cheeks.

Beelzebub from Good Omens

Beelzebub (Anna Maxwell Martin) is a supporting character in “Good Omens,” the show based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name. Beelzebub is a demon who parallels Gabriel as the representative of hell. Like Gabriel, they get upset when Adam won’t start the war to end the world. They’re always seen frowning with flies buzzing around them (hence the nickname “Lord of the Flies”). While the character is played by a woman, and this costume guide is designed for women, Beelzebub does not use pronouns in the series.

Mary Sanderson from Hocus Pocus

She smells children! Mary Sanderson (Kathy Najimy) is one of the antagonists in Hocus Pocus. Along with Winifred and Sarah, she is a witch who plans to use the life force of children to achieve eternal beauty. While she is more clever than Sarah, she is less cunning than Winifred. If you’re not a fan of wigs, you can style your hair upwards using gel and hairspray. It helps to have something to wrap your hair around, like a cup or soda can, so it maintains the shape. Use temporary purple color spray on top and on the bangs.

Snow White

Snow White is the first Disney princess, who meets the seven dwarves in the woods. After the Evil Queen poisons her, she falls into a deep sleep. A kiss from a prince breaks the spell and they live happily ever after. You can participate in her magical story with this costume. The petticoat helps the skirt achieve that classic princess shape. A red apple makes a cute accessory, but don’t bite into it! Pair with this Snow White makeup tutorial for the perfect princess look.

Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place

Chidi Anagonye (William Jackson Harper) is another protagonist of The Good Place. While alive, he studied and taught philosophy at universities. In spite of his academic pursuits, he struggled with making decisions, which led to his untimely death. In the Good Place, he gets paired with Eleanor as his “soulmate.” When she tells the truth about how she doesn’t belong there, he decides to teach her ethics. Be sure to carry a book by Aristotle or Kant under your arm, but don’t get too into character, or else you might get a stomach ache.

Derek Hale from Teen Wolf

Derek Hale

Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin) is a character from MTV’s hit show, Teen Wolf. He is the resident werewolf of Beacon Hills, and becomes a mentor to newly bitten Scott McCall. He is a recurring main character, and is one half of the show’s most popular ship, Sterek. His outfits are casual, but his style has a bad boy werewolf edge with a dark color scheme and signature leather jackets.

Derek has a tattoo of a triskele symbol on his back, so you can draw that with black marker or eyeliner. In later seasons, he has stubble. This can be achieved with makeup by using a stippling sponge and black face paint.
