Lilo and Stitch

Ohana means family, which means no one gets left behind or forgotten about. Lilo and Stitch is Disney animated movie made in 2002. The setting is Hawaii, where a six year old girl (and a fan of Elvis) named Lilo Pelekai lives with her big sister, Nani. Seen as an oddball by the other kids in the neighborhood, she begs Nani for a puppy so she won’t be lonely. At the same time, Experiment 626 has escaped intergalactic prison and landed on Earth. The alien infiltrates the animal shelter, and Lilo chooses it as her pet. She names it Stitch, symbolizing stitching her family, or ohana, back together. At first, Stitch is mischievous and aggressive, but he eventually learns the importance of Lilo’s friendship. Their bond causes Stitch to defy his intended destructive tendencies to keep the ohana together. After the success of the movie, a spinoff TV series aired on Disney Channel from 2003 to 2006.

Agatha Harkness from WandaVision

“It was Agatha All Along!” Finally, as many WandaVision fans expected, Agnes reveals herself to be Agatha Harkness. In the Marvel comics, she was the original witches from the Salem Witch trials, and mentors Wanda in real magic. The show seems to follow that storyline, as episode eight begins with a flashback to Agatha getting tried by her coven before wiping them out with dark magic. She breaks into Westview to try and figure out how Wanda is causing this Hex. The episode concludes with a full reveal of Agatha’s costume that was teased in the “Agatha All Along” opening, as well as the reveal of Wanda utilizing Chaos Magic, making her The Scarlet Witch. Since this outfit is pretty intricate, this guide includes some pieces for an inspired look. Layer the knit shirt over the collar and the dress, and then layer the capes for a similar feel.
