Pete McGee from The Ghost and Molly McGee

Pete McGee (voiced by Jordan Klepper) is the father of Molly and Darryl on the Disney Channel series The Ghost and Molly McGee.  Pete is an anxious man with an optimistic streak.  A lover of smooth jazz, Pete is married to Sharon.  Pete wears light blue jeans and blue sneakers, with a dark green sweater layered over a button-down.  He also has a bit of five o’clock shadow, so put away the razor for a few days if you want to really sell the look.

Puff Puff Humbert from Your Favorite Martian

Puff Puff Humbert (voiced by Ray William Johnson) is the lead singer of the fictitious cartoon band at the heart of Your Favorite Martian.  Puff Puff’s design has undergone some changes over the years, particularly during a rebranding period for the show when it was revived in 2022.  His latest iteration includes spiky, asymmetrical hair, and black-framed glasses in an octagonal shape.  Top off your simple costume with a microphone and your favorite YFM tunes to really sell the experience.

Dave Madson from davemadson’s LT Parodies

Dave Madson is the creative mind behind the YouTube channel and series davemadson’s LT parodies, a parody cartoon account.  Dave’s animation style is simplistic and relies on flat colors, making for an easy costume assembly.  To look like Dave from the LT parody episodes, you’ll need a black wig, red hat, grey shirt, and blue pants.  Top the outfit off with white high tops and black sunglasses.  If you’re not interested in growing a pencil mustache of your own, a black eyebrow pencil will suffice to draw one on.

lara croft from shadow of the tomb raider

Lara Croft from Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Lara Croft (voiced by Camilla Luddington) is back in the latest iteration of the well-known adventure game.  Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third, and reportedly, last, game in the Survivor Timeline of the series.  Lara’s look remains as gritty and practical as in earlier installments, with dark cargo pants, fingerless gloves, and a blue and black tank top as her primary costume.  It’s unlikely you’ll find pieces to exactly match her in-game outfits, so focus on getting as close as you can.  Lara uses a pickaxe that would set you back several hundred dollars, so if you decide to accessorize with one, don’t be afraid to go with a cheaper model.

Andrea Davenport from The Ghost and Molly McGee

Andrea Davenport (voiced by Jules Medcraft) is a top streamer and former nemesis of Molly McGee on the cartoon series The Ghost and Molly McGee.  Andrea can come across as egotistical, but it is eventually revealed that she’s very lonely, thereby becoming a friend of Molly and Libby Stein-Torres.  Andrea has ombre hair and wears a pink hoodie and purple skirt with white boots.

honest john from live action pinocchio

Honest John from Pinocchio (2022)

J. Worthington Foulfellow, better known as Honest John (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key), is an anthropomorphic fox and con artist in the 2022 live-action remake of Pinocchio.  Honest John is charismatic as can be, and eventually convinces Pinocchio to join Stromboli after trapping Jiminy Cricket in a jar so he can’t intervene.  Honest John’s outfit is a hodgepodge of different elements.  First, you’ll need plaid pants and a red jacket as well as a blue and gold shawl fashioned like a cape with a gold chain to hold it in place.  Though your first instinct may be to get brown plaid dress pants, a pair of pajama bottoms may better emulate the bagginess of Honest John’s movie look.  You’ll also need a fox mask, tail, and slippers to pair with your outfit.  The finishing touches include a top hat, cane, and white gloves with ruffled cuffs.

the corinthian from netflix the sandman

The Corinthian from The Sandman

The Corinthian (played by Boyd Holbrook) is a character from Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel The Sandman.  The Corinthian is a nightmare created by Dream, who makes his way into the waking world where he indulges in murder and influences others to give in to their darker tendencies.  In the Netflix adaptation, the Corinthian wears a long light grey trench coat and round-lens sunglasses to hide his “eyes,” which unlike humans are actually rows of teeth.  He dresses well otherwise, so lean into your preppier side when recreating his look for a costume.  He also favors a dagger as a weapon when not using his supernatural powers.

Apple Dumplin’ from Strawberry Shortcake

Apple Dumplin’ (voiced by Rebecca Shoichert) is a character in the Strawberry Shortcake franchise.  In the 2009 iteration, she is a cousin of Strawberry Shortcake herself who runs a blog.  She’s also best friends with Lemon Meringue and Sour Grapes.  Apple Dumplin’s look consists of a plaid skirt, white and yellow leggings, a white tee, and a yellow vest.  She accessorizes with a red knit hat, apple hair clip, and green belt.  She finishes off the look with a pair of red boots.  If you can’t find white and yellow striped leggings, a pair of pale yellow ones will also work.

nadia satrinava from the arcana

Nadia Satrinava from The Arcana: A Mystic Romance – Love Story

Nadia Satrinava is the Countess of Vesuvia in the mobile game The Arcana: A Mystic Romance – Love Story.  Nadia is a strong leader, especially in the wake of her husband Lucio‘s disappearance.  She and her servant Portia band together with Julian, Asra, and Muriel to save the city and its residents.  To emulate Nadia’s regal look, you’ll need to be a little patient and choose which aspects of her costuming you most want to emulate.  Focus on flowing lines and layers to get it right. You can use a sheer body suit and lace collar and gloves under a purple dress with cutouts to get the main portion of her look down.  Then, a corset and/or waist chain can add some depth.  A scarf draped around your neck to hang loose at your back can add to the fluttery feel.  Don’t forget to accessorize with some hair pieces, bangles, rings, and a head chain of your choice.

count lucio from the arcana

Count Lucio from The Arcana: A Mystic Romance – Love Story

Count Lucio is the one-time ruler of Vesuvia and husband of Nadia in the mobile game The Arcana: A Mystic Romance – Love Story.  Lucio is a vain man, always bragging about his accomplishments with a smirk.  He has blonde hair and dark brows.  His costume consists of a white suit without an undershirt, a red sash with medals, and a cloak held in place with a red gemstone brooch.  His left arm is covered in a gold gauntlet.  You can add gold details to a white blazer with fabric paint, if you’d like to get a little closer to his complete look.  For his armor, you could opt for just a gold hand gauntlet, which is easier to find, or you can take some leather paint to a brown full arm piece to evoke a similar feel, though it won’t be a total match.
