Aquarius

Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th) is the fixed air sign and 11th on the zodiac wheel. Aquarius, symbolized by the water bearer is the nonconformist of the zodiac. Regularly they are described as quirky, recluse creative types. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus the planet that governs innovation and future thinking thought. Aquarian’s downfalls lay in being a bit too aloof with the expectations of not fitting in. When Aquarius learns to be a team player they can be capable of many great things. This costume has deep darker colored clothing and accessories with unique bright makeup. Any type of wing will do with the white eyeliner. You can do something simple or go with a more graphic look. This DIY costume is perfect for any Aquarius on Halloween

Capricorn

Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th) is the Cardinal earth sign and 10th on the zodiac wheel. Capricorns, symbolized by the sea goat, are skilled navigators of both material and emotional realms. Capricorns are very serious goal oriented creatures with the strive to climb to the top and succeed at every task. If they put their mind to it they can achieve great things. The planet Saturn which rules over time, social order, and conformity has quite a hold on Capricorn which is why many believe Capricorn to be too career driven. When Capricorn learns to make a little time for play they tend to thrive. This costume features a pop of iridescent color from the pleated green midi skirt, while the rest of the outfit jumps between with black and white with silver accessories. Worn together it is a great unique choice for any Capricorn on Halloween.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st) is the Mutable fire sign and the 9th sign in the zodiac wheel. Sagittarius is the blunt thrill-seeking traveler of the zodiac. Jupiter, the planet of abundance, spirituality, and luck rules Sagittarius making this ever on the move archer full of wisdom and excellent at storytelling. Sagittarius’s down fall is when those stories become too boastful. The best lesson a sagittarius can learn is to grow a little more humble. The outfit consists of deeper earth tones and your very own set of bow and arrows. The makeup is a monochromatic orange color scheme to really give your look an extra pop. This DIY costume is perfect for any Sagittarius on Halloween.

Cal Jacobs from Euphoria

Cal Jacobs (played by Eric Dane) is a major antagonist in Euphoria. He is the strict father of Nate Jacobs and is well known in town for his real estate empire. Cal is a married man who is struggling with his sexuality and is constantly using hook up apps to find and sleep with you gay men and trans-women. He sometimes videotapes them without their consent and keeps these videos hidden in his home office. Cal has a lot to lose if people find out not only that he’s been cheating on his wife, but often assaulting the young men and women he meets off these sites. Cal is extremely weary once he finds out Jules goes to high school with his son Nate. He sees her at the fair and begs her to not tell anyone. Cal is a very intimidating character and has some extreme red flags personality-wise. So far there is no good side to Cal besides some re-emerging guilt for having a second life apart from his marriage and job. The costume is extremely simple men’s dress attire. Be sure to get your outfit on before coloring your hair with the silver hair wax. This outfit will work well as part of a group Euphoria costume for Halloween or cosplay.

Lenore from Castlevania

Lenore (voiced by Jessica Brown Findlay in Castlevania) is one of the members of Styria’s Council of Sisters. Carmilla placed Lenore in charge of convincing Hector the forge master to join their side again after being tortured and kept as a prisoner for months. Lenore’s personality matches her occupation as the council’s diplomat. She fronts as trusting and kind with good intentions but is actually quite manipulative and works connivingly to get her way. Lenore’s style is quite dainty. She wears a warm outfit due to the cold climate she and her sisters live in. If you are dressing for a summer or warm weather cosplay event I recommend going with something short-sleeved and wearing a lighter white shawl. Make sure to apply blush liberally across your cheekbones! This is a great costume and ideal for any late fall/winter cosplay event or costume party.

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.
