Shiloh from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Shiloh from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Shiloh Wallace (played by Alexa Vega) is the 17, almost 18-year-old daughter of Nathan Wallace in Repo! The Genetic Opera. Her father tells her she has a rare blood condition and, for this reason, she has been shut away most of her life. But after 18 years of confinement, she is hitting her rebellious streak and wants to be set free. She’s sly enough to sneak out of the house but naive about the world as she discovers what lays beyond the gates of her home. Like most of the world, she dresses in a Goth fashion. Her cameo necklace is unique, however, in that it represents her mother who died when Shiloh was born. She wears the cameo in some form throughout all her outfits, usually as a choker.

Luiza from Aruanas

Luiza from Aruanas

Luiza Laes (played by Leandra Leal) is an activist fighting to preserve Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest, and the people who call the Amazon “home”. She believes purpose must be greater than fear, and stands her ground. Being so head strong with a sharp tongue lands Luiza in many uncomfortable situations. Luiza passionately takes on all that is threatening the Amazon Rainforest in Aruanas.

Mr. Perkins from Despicable Me

Mr. Perkins from Despicable Me

Mr. Perkins (voice by Will Arnett) is the main villain of Despicable Me. He makes an appearance as a minor antagonist in Minions. Unlike most cartoon villains he keeps a cool head. But he is otherwise the epitome of cartoon evil. He even runs the Bank of Evil. You can’t get much more, well, evil than that.

It is surprisingly easy to dress as this villain supreme. He has good taste, which helps. A rich blue three-piece suit is accented by a light grey button down and teal accessories. Black dress shoes are understated enough not to take away from the rest of his look. His hair, though, is another matter. Mr. Perkins is largely bald save for a ring of hair that poke up on either side of his head like horns. It’s a unique hair style that might be easier to recreate using a bald cap, grey wool roving, and glue than it is to buy pre-made.

Princess Celestia from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Princess Celestia from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Princess Celestia (voiced by Nicole Oliver) is the princess who rules over all of Equestria. Although the land has many princesses, Celestia rules over them all. She is calm and self-assured but intelligent enough to admit when she is uncertain or afraid. She is a fair and balanced leader who tends to walk on the lighter, more open side of things. Her cutie mark is the sun, as she raises it every morning and sets it to rest at night. And, as an Alicorn, she has both wings and a horn as well as the same ever-flowing mane as her sister, Princess Luna.

America Hetalia

America from Hetalia

“I’m the hero!” Alfred F. Jones, also known as America or U.S, is a main character in Hetalia: Axis Powers. He is the personification of America: patriotic, heroic, and a natural born leader. Yet his confidence can come off as cockiness, and seems to poke his nose into everyone’s business. England had once seen him like a younger brother, but their separation has caused a rift in their relationship. America is often seen with a hamburger and soda pop, flashing a thumbs up. The “50” on the back of his bomber jacket represents the 50 states.

Italy Hetalia

Italy from Hetalia

Italia Veneziano, also known as North Italy, is a main character in Hetalia: Axis Powers. Everyone thought he was a girl because of his high voice, but they realized otherwise when his voice dropped mid-song. He is cheerful and energetic, yet quite ditzy and sensitive. This annoys Germany because he prefers to wander off rather than listen to his commands. North Italy loves food, namely pasta. He carries a white flag because he often surrenders to other countries. Pair this costume with black shoes and you’re set!

Tuco Salamanca from Breaking Bad

Tuco Salamanca from Breaking Bad

Tuco Salamanca (played by Raymond Cruz) is the quite possibly the most dangerous of all the drug dealers on Breaking Bad. Unless a person owns his absolute trust and loyalty – usually a feat reserved for older members of his family – Tuco has no objections to killing people. Even his near and dear are not safe if they disrespect him or someone he cares about.

For all the danger he presents, Tuco is a very savvy businessman and and ever savvier dresser. He prefers stone washed jeans and dark dress shoes that pair well with patterned shirts and a pair of silver boxing gloves on a chain around his neck. A buzz cut and a fake cigarette complete the cosplay for this volatile criminal!

sara howard from the alienist

Sara Howard from The Alienist

On TNT’s The Alienist, Sara Howard (portrayed by Dakota Fanning) is the first female employed by the New York Police Department.  Sara is ambitious, hoping to use her position as Commissioner Theodore Roosevelt’s assistant as a stepping stone to one day becoming the first female police detective.  She joins Dr. Kreizler and John Moore in their investigation of the murders of young male prostitutes and later becomes a private investigator.  Sara comes from an affluent family and dresses as such in elaborate Victorian style.  Recreating 19th century fashion can be difficult, so it’s important to get creative by mixing and matching historical costume pieces with contemporary items.

Sharona Fleming from Monk

For former San Francisco Police Detective Adrian Monk, the world is a jungle of germs, compulsions, and amazing water. Fortunately for him (and perhaps a bit unfortunately for her), his practical nurse, Bitty Schram’s Sharona Fleming is there to help him navigate it. At least, she was for the first two and a half seasons. Despite her uptight title, Sharona’s sense of style — a mix of punk and sixties retro — evokes a whimsical, “devil may care” vibe, perhaps to compensate for her daily stressors as the single mother of a rambunctious son, and careworn assistant to a man struggling with extreme OCD. Here, we’ve put together an approximation of various outfits Sharona’s worn throughout her time on Monk – she generally favors V-necks, miniskirts, numerous necklaces and chokers, and the color blue.
