Tammy Faye Bakker from The Eyes of Tammy Faye

Tammy Faye Bakker (played by Jessica Chastain) is the infamous wife of Jim Bakker in the film The Eyes of Tammy Faye.  The film follows the rise and fall of the controversial couple from young children’s show hosts to rich and powerful televangelists.  Tammy Faye’s costuming throughout the film offers an array of options, whether portraying her younger self with chic ’60s style or the more commonly known version with bright blue eye shadow, don’t be afraid to mix and match different pieces to recreate her looks.  For instance, layering a puff-sleeved blouse over a camisole and combining it with a skirt can help evoke the same look of Tammy’s white brocade dress, which can be hard to duplicate.

Tanya McQuoid (played by Jennifer Coolidge) is an insecure woman who vacations at the titular resort in the HBO series The White Lotus.  Tanya’s mother has recently died, and Tanya totes her cremated remains all the way to her Hawaiian getaway.  Tanya is struggling with the loss, as well as a lackluster love life, and turns to the resort’s spa manager Belinda for guidance and comfort.  Tanya wears an array of super expensive clothing, so finding exact matches for any of the pieces she dons will be a challenge.  Instead, focus on recreating similar silhouettes or using the same color palette when recreating one of her looks.

Polka-Dot Man from The Suicide Squad

Abner Krill (played by David Dastmalchian), better known by the name Polka-Dot Man, is a metahuman and a member of Task Force X in the movie The Suicide Squad.  Polka-Dot Man is able to create weapons out of multi-colored dots grown from his body as the result of an interdimensional virus.  Along with Peacemaker, Ratcatcher 2, and Bloodsport, Polka-Dot Man seeks to stop Starro the Conqueror.  Polka-Dot Man’s costume is very reminiscent of a vintage pilot, including googles and a skull cap.  To recreate his look, you’ll want to set aside some time to paint polka dots onto a light grey jumpsuit.  It can be difficult to find a grey cap, but a little grey paint can help soften the darker colors more commonly available.
