Rex from Airheads

Rex (played by Steve Buscemi) is the bassist for the Lone Rangers in the movie Airheads.  Rex along with his friends and bandmates Chazz and Pip holds a radio station hostage in a bid to have the band’s demo tape heard by producers.  Rex has many bad tattoos on his arms and wears black jeans with combat boots and a distressed “Road Kill Café” t-shirt.  If roadkill isn’t your thing, you could use any dark distressed t-shirt in your arsenal to evoke a similar effect.  If you choose to wear a fake goatee as part of your costume, make sure to get a good skin-safe adhesive like spirit gum as well as remover to ensure it looks great, but also doesn’t hurt coming off.

Yui from Sword Art Online

Yui (voiced by Ito Kanae and Stephanie Sheh) a supporting character in the anime series Sword Art Online. An A.I. designed to help monitor the mental health of users, Yui is adopted by Kirito and Asuna when they mistake her for a child-aged player lost in the game.  Yui has two primary costumes, a simple white dress with a bow around the middle, and a more complicated pixie-inspired outfit when she is fulfilling navigation duties in ALfheim Online.  Purchasing the pink cosplay dress can be pricey, and doesn’t come with the necessary accessories, so altering a medieval-inspired dress with an asymmetrical hem by removing the sleeves can help evoke the same look, if you’re willing to be a little crafty.  Similarly, stretchy pink bracelets can be worn to mimic Yui’s anklets.

Scarlett from Total Drama Island

Scarlett (voiced by Kristi Friday) is a contestant and antagonist in Total Drama:  Pahkitew Island.  Scarlett is considered one of the smartest contestants on the island and is a member of Pimâpotew Kinosewak.  As time goes on, Scarlett’s true nature is revealed to be much more evil than her initial polite persona would have people believe.  Scarlet has red hair and oval glasses.  She wears a green skirt, yellow sweater, and knee high socks.  Her librarian-esque look is a perfectly unassuming disguise for the villainous personality she is trying to hide.

Chazz Darby from Airheads

Chazz Darby (played by Brendan Fraser) is the lead singer and guitarist for the band the Lone Rangers in the ’90s film Airheads.  Alongside his fellow bandmates Pip and Rex, Chazz takes control of a local radio station in order to give his band’s music some airtime.  Chazz has long hair and wears a headband to keep it off his face, a leather jacket, as well as multiple rings and necklaces to complete his quintessentially rockstar look.  Finding Chazz’s exact t-shirt is going to be nearly impossible, so you could use this opportunity to bust out a truly vintage ’90s tee from your collection with a vintage vibe, or shoot for something in a distressed wash in a similar shade of light purple.

Chauncey Pesky from The Buzz on Maggie

Chauncey Pesky (voiced by Brian Doyle-Murray) is the patriarch of the Pesky family on the Disney Channel series The Buzz on Maggie.  Chauncey lives in a milk carton with his wife Frieda and their three children, Maggie, Aldrin, and Pupert.

Frieda Pesky from the Buzz on Maggie

Frieda Pesky (voiced by Susan Tolsky) is the mother of Maggie, Aldrin, and Pupert and the husband of Chauncey on the the Disney Channel cartoon series The Buzz on Maggie.  Frieda is a very typical housewife in many ways, spending much of her time cooking and cleaning for her family.  She wears a green dress with matching heels and a yellow headband.  If you’d prefer not to wear two headbands as part of your costume, you could always get crafty with some pom poms and pip cleaners and attach them to the yellow headband with a glue gun for a more seamless appearance.

Francesca from Mad Monster Party

Francesca (voiced by Gale Garnett) is the main antagonist of the stop motion animated film Mad Monster Party.  Francesca is the secretary of Baron Boris von Frankenstein, who has decided to retire as the head of the World Organization of Monsters.  Francesca is a total babe and often flirted with by the monsters on the Isle of Evil.  She works closely with Dracula in a bid to kill the Baron’s nephew Felix Flanken.  Francesca wears several era-appropriate outfits including a dark beige dress, an emerald green number, and a gold satin party dress.  To really sell the 60s look, you’ll want to be particular about your makeup.  The same eyeliner you use to rim your lids can also be used to create the perfect beauty mark on your right cheek.

claire randall fraser from outlander season 2

Claire Randall Fraser from Outlander Season 2

Claire Randall (played by Caitriona Balfe) is the main protagonist of the Starz series Outlander.  Claire travels through time to 1700s Scotland where she meets Jamie Fraser, whom she eventually marries.  In Season 2 of the acclaimed series, Claire finds herself in the French Court, where she dons a beautiful red dress and matching earrings and shoes.  To truly embody the fashion of the time, the undergarments are nearly as important as the dress itself, so you’ll need to be comfortable in a hoop skirt and crinoline to make sure your gown has enough volume in the silhouette.  It will be nearly impossible to find Claire’s intricate period shoes, so look for heels with a low profile and straps to evoke a similar feel.
