Asaka from Once On This Island

Asaka is one of the four gods in Once On This Island. The people on the island worship her as Mother of Earth, praying for her to “grow me a garden.” Asaka helps Ti Moune navigate the wild in her song “Mama Will Provide.” Glee star Alex Newell played this role in the 2018 Broadway revival. Clint Ramos designed this uniquely original costume; his concepts were inspired by the aftermath of natural disasters in the Caribbean. To make the skirt like the design, wrap the tablecloth around your waist. Use the fake leaves and flowers to embellish the headdress.

Enola Holmes

Enola Holmes is the main character of the Netflix movie, Enola Holmes. Alongside being the eponymous protagonist, she is the movie’s narrator. Based on the YA books written by Nancy Springer, Enola is the teenage sister of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Like her brother, she possesses incredible intelligence and observational skills, defying the gender norms for the era. Clever and well-read, her mother taught her everything from chess to jujitsu. Following her mother’s disappearance, she travels to London. Pretending to be a traditional Victorian woman, she deciphers and deduces the clues. Millie Bobby Brown, who you may recognize as Eleven from Stranger Things, plays the title role. This costume guide features her notable red gown, her casual blue dress (not pictured), and outfit for archery in the living room. While we can’t see the bottom half of Enola for that last look, we suggest matching white pants or a long white skirt.

His hit single “Blinding Lights” appears on his latest album, After Hours. It’s a music video full of fast cars, sick reverb, – and you guessed it, blinding lights — with nearly 285 million views on Youtube.

First introduced as Diego’s fellow psychiatric patient, Lila has a secret behind her witty comebacks and street smarts. She is actually the adopted daughter of The Handler — peep the red boots — and possesses the power of mimicry. She helps carry out her plan to track down Number Five, who supposedly killed her parents. She uses her powers to maim the Hargreeves siblings, but her love for Diego prompts her to turn on her adoptive mother. Emulate her spunky sixties style with choppy hair and smudged eyeshadow.

Lucifer Morningstar from Lucifer

Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is the eponymous protagonist of the hit show Lucifer. Getting bored with ruling Hell, he defies his father and flees to Earth. He spends his time drinking, partying, and flirting as the owner of LA’s hottest nightclub, LUX. When he becomes involved in a murder, he meets Detective Chloe Decker. After helping her solve the murder, he agrees to be her consultant for the LAPD. Despite his charismatic and indulgent personality, Lucifer realizes he’s changing, but his stubbornness and selfishness keep him from revealing the truth. Other celestial characters such as Amenadiel and Eve try to get him to return to Hell, yet as events unfold, Lucifer and Chloe allow their love for each other to prevail through the hellish darkness. Use a stipple sponge and black eyeshadow to achieve his stubble.

Ariana Grande in “Positions”

Ariana Grande is a pop singer who continues to stay at the top of the charts, perhaps the most popular of our generation. Her song “Positions”, which is also the title of her new album, has over 200 million listens on Spotify. The music video, which features Ariana quite literally “switching the positions” as the president and posing around the White House, garnered 108 million views on Youtube.  These are only two of her 60s-era Jackie Kennedy inspired outfits from the video. Others include a vintage houndstooth winter-coat and a yellow blazer with a matching yellow miniskirt.

Michael Langdon

Michael Langdon (Cody Fern) is a character in American Horror Story. He appears at the end of Murder House and as the antagonist of Apocalypse. He is the son of Tate Langdon and Vivian Harmon, who was stolen as a baby by Constance Langdon. Because he is the sinister offspring of a the Rubber Man, he is believed to be the Antichrist. Michael embodies all evil and stops at nothing to bring about the apocalypse. In this quest, he tries to tempt other characters such as Cordelia and Madison with the seven deadly sins. He tends to be violent and explosive, though he has moments of emotion and sensitivity. Although Michael appears  handsome, his true form is an emaciated being with black eyes.

Stefon from SNL

Stefon is a character in the comedy show Saturday Night Live. Flamboyant yet anxious, he makes several appearances on Weekend Update with Seth Meyers as the city correspondent. Created and portrayed by Bill Hader — with the help of John Mulaney — Stefon shares his favorite destinations for tourists coming to New York City. These places often include bizarre parties and nightclubs. He speaks in a soft, high voice and often puts his hands over his mouth. The exact Ed Hardy python shirt is really hard to find, so we suggest layering an olive green t-shirt over a graphic long sleeve shirt to mimic it.
