Doki Doki Literature Club

Doki Doki Literature Club is a freeware visual novel game.  While it initially appears to be a light-hearted dating simulator, things take a more sinister turn fairly quickly.  The four main characters of the game include Monika, Sayori, Yuri, and Natsuki, all of whom vie for the attention of the male protagonist at different points of the game.  The girls all wear identical school uniforms that include a tan blazer, blue skirt, and orange vest.  You can choose which character to emulate depending on the socks and wig you pair with the rest of your costume.

Éowyn from the Lord of the Rings

Éowyn (played by Miranda Otto) is the sister of Éomer in The Lord of the Rings.  She is a minor character introduced late in the series.  She is at first enamored of Aragorn, though she eventually goes on to marry Faramir.  Éowyn is incredibly strong-willed and eventually impersonates a man in order to fight with her fellow countryman.  She saves King Théodon’s life and kills the Witch-King of the Nazgul, who a prophesy had said could be killed by no man.  If you’re willing to really commit to your costume, feel free to dirty up your outfit and tatter your cloak for a more authentically used look.

Yumi Ishiyama from Code Lyoko

Yumi Ishiyama (voiced by Mirabelle Kirkland) is one of the Lyoko Warriors from the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  Yumi is a calm and athletic person, as well as Aelita Schaeffer’s best friend.  Her relationship with Ulrich Stern wavers between platonic and romantic throughout the series.  Yumi’s typical clothing is black and straightforward.  However, to recreate her original virtual costume, you’ll need to be a little creative.  By layering red leggings with brown socks and beige sports tape, you can mimic much of her outfit.  Then, you’ll need to layer a yellow obi over your dress, and wield a pair of fans to finish the look.

William Dunbar from Code Lyoko

William Dunbar (voiced in English by David Gasman) is one of the main characters of the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  William has romantic feelings for fellow warrior Yumi Ishiyama, which makes it difficult for him to get along with Ulrich Stern, as they both vie for her attention.  Aside from his intense interest in Yumi, William is often aloof and laidback.  To recreate his warrior costume, you’ll want to focus on tightly-fitted clothing in black and orange.  You can use compression gear and a surfing rash guard to mimic the skintight bodysuit look.

Sugar Rush Sandy from Brawl Stars

Sandy (voiced by Patrick Pedraza) is a legendary brawler in the mobile video game Brawl Stars.  Sandy uses his Super, a sandstorm, and his Gadget, the sleep stimulator, to help guide his team to victory.  Sandy’s Sugar Rush skin was introduced in September of 2020.  To recreate this particular look, you may need to employ some DIY skills.  Use a yellow paint to add details to the shirt and baseball cap, and you can either sew or glue the silicone coasters onto the hat to make the eyes.  If you’d like to go the extra mile, you can use an oil-based silicone paint to make the coasters blue.
