Gulliver from Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Gulliver is the hapless castaway that sometimes appears on the shores of your island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He has a tendency to fall asleep on the deck of his ship and roll overboard. When you fin him you have to help collect the pieces of his communicator so he can call his crew for a pick-up.

Dressing as Gulliver is a little tricky given that he’s a bird. White pants and white gloves help give you the appearance of all-over white feathers. You can add white wings or use a white shawl to mimic Gulliver’s wings depending on your preference. Yellow duck feet give you the webbed look of Gulliver but you can also use yellow rain boots for a more human look. Similarly, you can use a false bill or leave it off.

To really capture Gulliver’s look though you need a sailor’s cap and shirt. A few pieces of circuitry make for a great accessory to finish off the costume.

Harvey from Animal Crossing: New Horizons

In Animal Crossing: New Horizon, Harvey is the kind old hippie that lives on a nearby island. He runs a photo studio that is open for anyone to use and loves to have people come visit him to do their own shoots.

To cosplay as Harvey you’ll want to practice a laid back and slightly hazy way of doing things. That’s the real key to being Harvey. For his costume, though, you’ll want a a long wig and a mustache. The hair simulates Harvey’s ears, though can choose to add some costume dog ears as well if you want. A brown vest with fringe, a tunic top, bell bottoms, and moccasins finish out his look. And while these accessories aren’t necessary, a camera will really round out the look.

SCP 049 from SCP Containment Breach

SCP-049 from SCP – Containment Breach

SCP-049 is one of the terrifying creatures catalogued by the SCP Foundation. The SCP Foundation started as a form of online collaborative storytelling and has since morphed into a video game franchise among other things. SCP-049 appears in the game SCP – Containment Breach. It is humanoid and appears dressed as a surgeon from the European medieval era. Unfortunately this is not a doctor that heals. Any human it touches becomes a reanimated corpse that is bound to do the will of SCP-049.

Although SCP-049 is itself largely unknowable – since getting too close can turn you into an undead puppet – dressing up as SCP-049 is relatively easy. All you need is a black hooded cloak or robe, a grey plague doctor mask, black boots, and black gloves. It helps if you make the sleeves of the robe a bit tattered and if you wear black clothing underneath so it seems as if there is nothing under the robe but darkness and void.

DustSans from Dusttale (Undertale AU)

Dusttale Sans

This alternate reality Sans’ eyes are purple and red — a Sans mask can be repainted with acrylic to reflect this if desired.

Tricky from Subway Surfer

Tricky from Subway Surfers

Tricky is an unlockable character on the popular mobile game Subway Surfer. In technical terms, she was the first bonus character available to unlock after the game’s main character, Jake, pulled off enough achievements. The Subway Surfer expanded lore (such as the eponymous animated series) reveals that Tricky is the heiress to a family fortune, but she doesn’t let that get to her head or bar her from her favorite activities. Hence, the comfortable clothes and down-to-earth attitude.

Barry Burton from Resident Evil

Barry Burton from Resident Evil

Barry Burton from the Resident Evil franchise has been handed down from voice actor to voice actor but he remains the character that so many fans know and love.

He is a former member of the US Air Force and a backup for the elite S.T.A.R.S. unit. His experience means that he approaches his work with a very pragmatic and critical eye. Work boots, sturdy jeans, and an easy-access chest holster mean that he can get in, get the job done, and get out without worrying about his clothes making that harder. His buzz cut and clean shave are holdovers from his time in the military. And though he is well-versed in many weapons, he prefers his trusty revolver.

Kid Icarus Pit

Pit from Kid Icarus

Pit is the protagonist in the Kid Icarus video games. As indicated by his wings, he is an angel. His patron deity is Palutena, and he serves as the captain of her guard.

Use a reference picture of the character to lay the garment correctly on your body. Secure the sheets in place by tying the brown scarf around your waist. If you want a less DIY approach, you can alter a white toga, listed in this guide for your convenience.
