Gabriela “Gabi” Hernández (voiced by Ynairaly Simo) is the the 10-year-old deuteragonist of the animated film Vivo.  Vivo, the titular monkey, enlists Gabi to help him deliver a song to a famous singer at her farewell show.  Gabi has purple and a colorful sense of style, with a colorful plaid skirt an bright pink collared shirt paired with a checkered tie.  You can get the sleeveless look of Gabi’s character by cutting the sleeves off a standard polo.  And if you can’t find the exact skirt Gabi uses in the movie, don’t be afraid to find the most colorful one you can and commit to it.

Rick Flag from The Suicide Squad

Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) is a character in 2021’s The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn. He served as a colonel in the U.S. Army as well as a special operations forces specialist. In the first Suicide Squad (2016), he led Task Force X and a team of Navy Seals to defeat Enchantress. His success allowed him to continue in the leadership position with a new team. Five years later, their mission is to go to Corto Moltese to destroy Jotunheim, and then execute Project Starfish. However, this was actually a cover-up for a government mistake. Peacemaker was a spy on the inside, and he murders Flag in attempt to complete the mission.

Ludwig Dieter from Army of Thieves

Ludwig Dieter from Army of Thieves

In Army of the Dead and the prequel Army of Thieves, Ludwig Dieter (played by Matthias Schweighöfer) is a German safecracker who acts nervous but has unmatched skills. He’s hired to recover $200 million in Las Vegas, which at this point is overrun with zombies. Ludwig’s original name is Sebastian Schlencht-Wöhnert, but as a child he drew a comic book about a world-class safecracker named Ludwig Dieter, and eventually adopted the name for himself. Besides the clothing and Casio calculator watch, make sure you style your hair to match his curly golden locks.

Penny from Bolt

Penny from Bolt

Penny (Miley Cyrus) might have only played Bolt’s partner on TV but the love between the two is very real. And though Penny faces danger Bolt doesn’t expect, their bond saves them both in the end.

Penny has a few looks in the movie but one of her most notable is the layered look featuring black and white striped tights. They pair well with black shorts and shoes, a black long sleeve shirt, and a red t-shirt. These are all pieces that can transition into other cosplays as well as play a role in your day to day closet, making Penny a great closet cosplay. The one piece that is specific to the cosplay is the auburn wig. It matches a few other costumes, however, and if you’d prefer to style your own hair, you can leave it off altogether.

Rowena Ravenclaw

Rowena Ravenclaw from Harry Potter

There is no official actress for Rowena Ravenclaw as the founder died long before Harry Potter attended Hogwarts. And while there are descriptions in the book, cosplaying as Rowena still leaves lots of room for personal interpretation. The one thing you don’t want to forget, however, is her diadem.

For this version you’ll need a long auburn wig, a blue gown, matching blue slippers, a wand, and a leather journal with a blue stone. An eagle necklace rounds out the bewitching look.
