Glinda from Wicked

Glinda (formerly Galinda) is one of the main characters in the musical Wicked, which tells the backstory of Elphaba, better known as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.  Glinda begins her journey at Shiz University, where she is accidentally assigned as Elphaba’s roommate.  Despite the rocky start to their relationship, the two eventually become friends, though not every fairy tale in this case gets a happy ending.  While there are certainly more well-known costumes for Glinda in other media, the costume she wears when she arrives at Shiz is a classic white outfit with nods to vintage styles including oxford pumps and a white beret.

Barbie (2023)

Barbie (played by Margot Robbie), one of the most iconic toys in existence, is now getting the live-action treatment in her own film.  Cast out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough, Barbie finds herself transported to the real world alongside Ken.  Barbie’s outfits are bright and outlandish, perfect for a doll.  Getting exact matches for the costumes is going to be almost impossible, so focus on recreating the look as closely as you can while channeling the overall vibe.  You can use some iron-on star patches to add details to her pink cowgirl outfit, and if you don’t feel like rollerblading in your costume all night, a pair of neon high-tops can be easily swapped in.

Zoé Lee from Miraculous Ladybug

Zoé Lee (voiced by Deneen Melody) is a supporting character on the animated series Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir. The younger half-sister of Chloé Bourgeois, Zoé is originally from New York City.  In the fourth season of the show, Zoé also becomes the wasp-themed superhero Vesperia.  Zoé’s civilian clothes evoke a similar color palette to her superhero uniform.  She wears yellow pants and a black leather jacket.  Her blonde hair has a bright pink streak on the left side.  As Vesperia, her hair is black in the front on both sides instead.  Adults will likely find it easiest to emulate Zoé’s day-to-day appearance, while any pint-sized superheroes can don a Vesperia costume made in their size much more easily.

Heidi Turner from South Park

Heidi Turner (voiced by Jessica Makinson) is a character on the adult animation series South Park.  Heidi is part of the popular girls clique along with Red, Bebe, Nichole, Annie, Nelly, Jenny, and Lola.  To recreate Heidi’s green jacket with red collar, you may need to do a little layering; by using a red dickie collar under a green jacket, you can achieve a similar look.  Pair it with a knit beanie with a flower on it and you’ll be well on your way to South Park Elementary.

Bonnie Swanson from Family Guy

Bonnie Swanson (voiced by Jennifer Tilly) is Joe Swanson‘s wife on the animated series Family Guy.  With dark hair and a raspy voice, Bonnie is often portrayed as weary of her husband much of the time.  For the first 116 episodes of the show, Bonnie is pregnant before giving birth to a daughter.  To recreate her look, you’ll need a dark wig and purple dress and flats.  She also wears pink lipstick and earrings, but it’s up to you whether you want to portray pregnant Bonnie.  If you do and you’re not currently expecting, a false pregnancy belly can do the trick for you.
