Becky from Sin City

In Sin City, Becky (played by Alexis Bledel) is a working girl in Old Town. She has just started working the street and is new to the game. We find out she has mostly been doing sex work to support her mom. Becky’s downfall is caring about her own well being more than the well of others. Her naive nature also allows her to be manipulated by the mobsters. She ends up making a deal with a Wallenquist for her mother’s protection in exchange for the lives of Gail, another working girl, and Dwight McCarthy an affiliate. She confesses to be a traitor and her justice is later served by the other girls. Becky dresses in almost all leather with a light pink corset like top. Her most notable style choice is her heavy jewelry with layered crosses.

Hector from Castlevania

Hector (played by Theo James) in the Netflix animated series Castlevania is a young and often naive devil forge master. Once he was one of two human generals within Dracula’s army. Carmilla tricked Hector into leaving Dracula’s castle and becoming part of her promised new army. Unfortunately for Hector when things come apart at the seams he is made Carmilla’s prisoner and brought back to Styria only to be thrown in a dungeon. Later Lenore, Carmilla’s sister, strikes a deal with him he can not refuse.

This Hector costume is from the later seasons where he is enslaved by Carmilla and not wearing his traditional forge master attire. He is also without his hammer. The costume is very simple and would work great as a couple costume with someone dressed as Lenore for any cosplay event.

Scorpio

Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st) is the fixed water sign of the zodiac and 8th on the zodiac wheel. Scorpios are the most calculating of any water sign. Symbolized by the scorpion they are known have a mysterious and somewhat dangerous quality. They do not show their plans to others or talk much about themselves. Recluse Scorpios are ruled by the planet Pluto. Scorpios tend to have an outer shell that fronts as thorny to many but are quite sensitive and soft characters once they are willing to open up. This costume is mostly black monochromatic with silver and brown details. A fitting look for any Scorpio on Halloween night.

Marla Singer from Fight Club

Marla Singer (played by Helena Bonham Carter) is the main female protagonist in Fight Club. Marla has a death wish and carries an apathetic attitude. She makes some cash from stealing clothes from laundry mats and selling them off. She gets a free cup of coffee by going to various support group meetings that have no relation to anything she herself may be going through. She is promiscuous and sleeps with The Narrator’s roommate, Tyler Durden, after getting The Narrator’s number originally. Marla is a strong spirited person despite her struggles with mental illness and addiction. She does not care what others think of her and does what she wants when she wants.

This costume is relatively easy to put together. First get your hair messy with the got2b beach matte paste and put a section of it up with a scrunchie. Then apply the nyx black eyeshadow base and after that the shadow. It can be applied pretty messy with one eye shadow brush and a bit of smudging with your fingers. After putting on the cami and the skirt and you get to the cardigan use however many brooches you would like to close it. You can style them like buttons down the cardigan. I suggest using at least 3. Marla has her’s buttoned from top to bottom with bottom part open. Finally, finish putting on the rest of the outfit and apply lip gloss. This costume works well for either Halloween or cosplay events.

Wanda Blake from Todd McFarlane’s Spawn

Wanda Blake (played by Dominique Jennings) is the widow of Albert Francis Simmons in Spawn. Since Al’s death 5 years ago she has moved on and remarried Al’s best friend Terry Fitzgerald. The two have a daughter named Cyan. Wanda is a strong and passionate woman. She works as a lawyer and seeks the truth above all else. Wanda dresses mostly casual while she is out of the office. She wears basic clothes with gold jewelry and glossy red lipstick.

Joan Lambert from Alien

Joan Lambert (played by Veronica Cartwright) is the navigator aboard the USCSS Nostromo. Lambert suffered from hyperactivity and nervousness which is suspected to be caused by trauma she faced as trans woman. Her nervousness caused her to freeze up when faced with the Xenomorph while searching for coolant. In the end, she was too afraid to take the risk and save herself.

Elle Driver from Kill Bill

Elle Driver played by Daryl Hannah is a member of The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. Her code name is California Mountain Snake. Elle was put in the position Beatrix Kiddo had before her attempted assassination by Bill. It is clear that she and Bill had some sort of romantic relation after Kiddo’s attempted assassination. Her most notable characteristic is her eyepatch which she wears due to having her eye ripped out by Pei Mei for calling him a ‘miserable old fool’ while training. Elle can be described as short-tempered rude and arrogant. Her selfish behavior eventually causes her demise.

Kei from Akira

Kei voiced by Mami Koyama is the main female protagonist in Akira. She is a resistance fighter in an anti-government organization. As Neo-Tokyo dissolves she and Shotaro Kaneda join forces and discover the government has been using child test subjects while seeking the ultimate energy of Akira. Keis outfit is functional as well as futuristic. This costume is always a classic choice for any cosplay event.

Douglas Quaid from Total Recall

In Total Recall, Douglas Quaid (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a construction engineer on Earth in the year 2084. Quaid is having recurring dreams about Mars and a strange woman who lives there. He has never visited the planet but has always wanted to. Quaid decides to get to the “Rekall” center to have an implanted memory of Mars so he would not physically have to go. Before the Martian memories could be implanted Quaid violently reacts and has an episode so extreme “Rekall” agents sedate him, erase his memory of visiting and toss him in a taxi. We discover Quaid’s memories have been erased before and now he is under attack with clues from his former self known as “Hauser” telling him how to get back to Mars. Quaid’s quest is to get to Mars and to find the strange woman Melina. Quaid’s blue-collar working man’s clothes serve functionality. For a more complete look, you can tear some of the fabric and add fake blood on your face/body and clothes.
