Tomura Shigaraki from My Hero Academia

Tomura Shigaraki is the Leader of the Villains, and the main antagonist of the anime My Hero Academia. Initially his goal was to kill All Might, but it then became destroying all society. He is the most powerful villain because of his strength and intellect. His Quirk is Decay, meaning whatever he touches with all five of his fingers will disintegrate. The most obvious characteristic is the disembodied hands on his face and body. These hands are actually remnants of his family, after accidentally murdering them with his Quirk. Despite their bizarre appearance, Tomura admits the hands bring him calmness and peace. Our costume guide only features the hand for the face.

Multimouse from Miraculous Ladybug

Multimouse is a character from the French cartoon, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Her real identity is Marinette Dupain-Cheng, a novice fashion designer who takes on the superhero persona of Miraculous Ladybug. She has a huge crush on famous fashion model Adrien Agreste, who takes on the superhero persona of Cat Noir.

Percy Jackson Nico di Angelo

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 Good Omens

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.

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.
