Severen from Near Dark

Severen (played by Bill Paxton) is a manic member of the roaming vampire family in Kathryn Bigelow’s film Near Dark. Severen is often at odds with the recently-turned Caleb. Severen’s costuming includes a leather jacket covered in trophy pins from various police departments, a red flannel, and plenty of fake blood.  The most important part of this costume, however, is the attitude, so make sure to have as much fun as Paxton did playing this slightly-unhinged blood sucker.

Maggie Pesky from The Buzz on Maggie

Maggie Pesky (voiced by Jessica DiCicco) is the 13-year-old fly protagonist of the Disney show The Buzz on Maggie.  Maggie dreams of being a rockstar and has psychic visions of the future.  Maggie’s costume includes chunky boots, a yellow skirt, and bright pink hair and socks.  She also often rocks a double-necked guitar, but purchasing one would be an expensive proposition for a costume.  Instead, you could use two inflatable guitars and to create a double-necked prop by cutting off the neck of one and taping it closed after it’s inflated.  If you’d like to take your costume to the next level, you could also follow a DIY tutorial like this one to create additional arms, as Maggie has four.
