benatar from your favorite martian

Benatar from Your Favorite Martian

Benatar (voiced by Ray William Johnson with Jesse Cale providing his singing voice) is a supporting character in the web series Your Favorite Martian.  A member of the titular band, Benatar suffers some rougher treatment from bandmates Puff Puff and Axel, but it doesn’t seem to bother him much.  To recreate Benatar’s look, you’ll need black pants and a blue suit jacket with a red tie.  He also has blonde hair that sweeps over his eyes, so you might need to take a little time to style your hair or a wig.  Lastly, if you don’t already have a keytar, they can be quite expensive, so don’t shy away from a toy or inflatable version instead of the real thing to complete the look.
