Sarah from Assassination Nation

Sarah Lacey (played by Suki Waterhouse) is a main character in the dark comedy satire film Assassination Nation.  Alongside her sister Em and friends Lily and Bex, Sarah must survive the town of Salem after chaos and violence erupt in the wake of a hacker leaking private data.  Sarah has soft pink hues added to her blonde hair, which can be achieved with hair chalk or a wig.  When recreating her most iconic look from the film, you can substitute a plain red trench coat if you’re not willing to shell out for the shiny leather replica jacket.

Lily from Assassination Nation

Lily Colson (played by Odessa Young) is a main character in the satire film Assassination Nation.  Lily and her three best friends, Bex, Em, and Sarah are all high school seniors.  When a hacker begins leaking private information about Lily and others in her hometown of Salem, the residents descend into violence.  Lily is a pretty teenager with a rebellious side.  She is often seen wearing her pink Vans Sk8-Hi shoes.  However, it can be almost impossible to find an exact match, so go for a pair of high-tops in a similar shade of pink.  Likewise, the red jackets the girls wear after the hack takes place can be expensive to track down, but a plain red trench coat can get the point across just as well.

kingpin from marvel puzzle quest

Kingpin from Marvel Puzzle Quest

Wilson Fisk, better known by his villain moniker Kingpin, has gone through many different iterations on both page and screen.  In the Marvel Puzzle Quest video game, Kingpin is the premier crime lord in New York City.  He has been the leader of both the Maggia and the Hand, and he has no qualms about sacrificing his subordinates if it means gaining the upper hand in a fight.  This version of Kingpin has him wearing a dapper-looking suit with a purple cravat and grey trench coat with matching purple lining.  His cane includes a diamond-like gem on the top.  When choosing a coat, you’ll likely want to focus on either the correct shade of light grey or the lining, as finding both in tandem can be difficult.  Either way, make sure if you aren’t ready to bic your head you take time to get your bald cap right to really pull off the look.

Old Coot (voiced by Ryan Miller) is the main character in The Old Coot Show, a YouTube show that follows Old Coot and his son on a series of brief wacky adventures.  To recreate this simple look, you’ll want to flesh-colored zentai suit to evoke the eyeless design of the character, as well as a grey beard to wear over that.  You can forgo the cross and rope accessories that come with the brown monk’s robe, leaving you with just the hooded cloak necessary for the costume.
