John Moore from The Alienist

John Moore (portrayed by Luke Evans) is a newspaper illustrator and friend of Dr. Laszlo Kreizler on TNT’s The Alienist.  John can be melancholy and prone to self-destructive behavior as the result of a broken engagement and the death of his younger brother many years before.  John uses his skills as an illustrator to create crime scene documentation that prove helpful to Dr. Kreizler and Sara Howard as they continue their investigations.  John comes from a wealthy family and dresses the part well.  If you are recreating his look, don’t be afraid of mixing patterns and colors in traditional Victorian silhouettes.

Emma from Dave

On the TV show Dave, Emma (played by Christine Ko) is Ally‘s roommate and friend.  Emma offers colorful commentary, and even more colorful clothing to the show, while also providing Dave with unique artwork for his live performances.  Emma and Elz hook up at the start of episode 7, and she borrows a grey t-shirt from him for the ride home.  Emma dons bright vintage-inspired clothing and wears her hair in two space buns.  Replicating Emma’s vintage sweaters could be difficult without a trip to a thrift store, making this costume a perfect opportunity to check out your local vintage scene.

Sara Howard from The Alienist

On TNT’s The Alienist, Sara Howard (portrayed by Dakota Fanning) is the first female employed by the New York Police Department.  Sara is ambitious, hoping to use her position as Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt’s assistant as a stepping stone to one day becoming the first female police detective.  She joins Dr. Kreizler and John Moore in their investigation of the murders of young male prostitutes and later becomes a private investigator.  Sara comes from an affluent family and dresses as such in elaborate Victorian style.  Recreating 19th century fashion can be difficult, so it’s important to get creative by mixing and matching historical costume pieces with contemporary items.
