Sonya Blade (1995 Movie)

Sonya Blade (Bridgette Wilson) is a special forces agent who must compete in the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament in order to prevent humanity from damnation. This version of Sonya Blade is from the live-action Mortal Kombat film from 1995, and her clothing is much more realistic for special forces than the video game version of Sonya Blade.

Vicki Vale

Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger) is a love interest of Bruce Wayne, the alter-ego of Batman. In 1989, Tim Burton brought her character to life in his film, Batman. Much like Selina Kyle, Vicki dresses very elegant and finds herself in sleek dresses.

Trevor Goodchild

Trevor Goodchild is the antagonist in MTV’s animated series Aeon Flux. Described as an morally ambiguous villain, he is occasionally but ultimately stopped by Aeon Flux, a secret agent he has a soft spot for.

Nancy Downs from The Craft

Nancy Downs from The Craft

Nancy Downs (Fairuza Balk) is the troubled punk-rock goth teen in 1996’s The Craft. Arguably the favorite among the cult following of this film. Every outfit of hers is admired throughout the whole movie, most notably her Catholic school uniform and the outfit she fights Sarah in.
There are so many fashion pieces she reuses and recreates that it’s up to the admirer to decide what outfit of hers they want to resurrect. Aside from the clothes, her makeup is fairly simple: brown and grey eyeshadow, red or black nail polish, and purple lip-liner with red lipstick.

Kim from Edward Scissorhands

Kim Boggs from Edward Scissorhands

Kim Boggs (Winona Ryder) is the beautiful and innocent daughter of the Avon lady Peg in Edward Scissorhands. Her character falls in love with the estranged Edward Scissorhands (played by Johnny Depp) who’s gentle nature changes her views on love and what is right. Set in a 1960’s like-setting, Her outfits are straight out of the past. Two outfits of hers that are most memorable are her camping clothes she meets Edward in, and the significant white dress she wears at the end of the movie. Her makeup is fair and natural, consisting of rose colored lips and bright eyeshadow.

Selina Kyle (Michelle Pfeiffer) from Batman Returns

Selina Kyle from Batman Returns

In 1992’s Batman Returns, Michelle Pfeiffer plays Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, who is tragically murdered by being pushed out of a window. Selina’s style aside from her stitched cat suit is a lot of wool + fur coats and black dresses. Her makeup also consists of grey and brown eyeshadow and rose pink lipstick, contrasting to her blue eyeshadow and red lipstick when in costume.

Mickey Knox from Natural Born Killers

Mickey Knox from Natural Born Killers

Mickey Knox (Woody Harrelson) is the sexy serial killer alongside his mate Mallory (Juliette Lewis) in Oliver Stone’s 1994 cult classic flick: Natural Born Killers. He’s an efficient killer who shows zero empathy for his victims.

D’arcy Wretzky

D’arcy Wretzky is the bass player of the alternative band The Smashing Pumpkins. Next to Courtney Love, she was a inspiration for alternative teenage girls of the 1990’s. If you want to pull off a grungy chic look, you’ve come to the right place.

There’s two outfits of hers that really stand out, worn during Lollapalooza in the ’90s. Fashion pieces that are certainly mainstream again: The first, a silver sleek silk camisole, a sheer black cardigan, some mom jeans, black sunglasses, and black boots. The second, the infamous orange & red striped long-sleeved shirt, black leggings, and another pair of black shades.

Dr Pamela Isley

Dr. Pamela Isley

In 1997 when Batman & Robin was released, the critics bashed the hell out of it. It is one of the most disappointing films in history by statistics. And personally, one of the only things I adore about the movie in general is Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy (knowing how much I looked up to the character in general during my childhood).

Aside from Poison Ivy’s main costume, I decided to take a turn towards her laboratory uniform as Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley since I find it sexier, and less cheesy. It’s one tutorial that’s easy to start, and perfect for a last minute idea. You could literally go to Wal-Mart and buy these items for less than $20 (then proceed to distress the clothing if I may so add). The items needed are: a tank top, a beige skirt, and some red-hot long hair. If you want it authentically made, vines and chemistry instruments would really pull the whole look together.

Alice Wakefield from Lost Highway

Alice Wakefield from Lost Highway

In Lost Highway, Alice Wakefield (Patricia Arquette) is the seductress who crosses Fred’s path while he is in the life of Pete, convincing him to murder. He soon finds out how power-hungry she is, and knowing he could never have her because she was simply an illusion. She is the other half to Renee Madison.

Alice’s wardrobe is beyond beautiful, elegant and full of bright colors while remaining to look seductive. Her most prominent fashion pieces are her white satin mini-dress, light brown platforms, gold clutch and watch set she appears in when she asks Pete to meet up with her after encountering her earlier in a black mini-dress similar to the one she is last seen wearing, along with matching bra and panties, and topped with a cheetah fur coat.

Aside from the clothes, she can be spotted with a curly/banged platinum blonde bob, while sporting some bright primary colored lips along with metallic colored eyeshadow/nail polish.
