Dimitri from Anastasia

Dimitri from Anastasia

Dimitri (voiced by John Cusack) has spent his life running from the memories of what he saw as a child the night the Romanov family fell. He’s never seemed to settle, never really found his place. Not until he stumbles upon the real Anastasia, the girl he helped escape years ago. Only then do things seem to fall into place.

Dimitri has a few looks in the film but his most memorable is probably the first outfit we see him in as an adult. A off-white button-neck shirt and brown slacks are a common look for the time, as are the vest and brown shoes. But with his slick center-parted hair style, Dimitri gives the look a modern spin that makes for a great cosplay.

Powerline from A Goofy Movie

Powerline (voiced by Tevin Campbell) is the larger-than-life musician idolized by Max Goof in Disney’s A Goofy Movie.  In a bid to impress his crush Roxanne, Max tells his classmates that he and his father will be performing on stage with Powerline at an upcoming concert.  The ruse derails the father-son road trip Goofy actually has planned, culminating in a wild and emotional ride for them both.  Powerline’s character and performance style were influenced by some of the biggest rock stars of the age including Michael Jackson and Prince.  To recreate his look, you’ll need a yellow jumpsuit and black boots.  A fine-tipped fabric paint applicator can help you add the nuclear-looking design on the front of his uniform.  Most importantly, don’t forget to belt out I 2 I while busting a move.
