Madara Uchiha from Naruto Shippuden

Madara Uchiha was one of the founders of Konohagakure. Madara saved and trained Obito Uchiha, and entrusted the latter with his plans and his name upon his eventual death, leading to Obito using the name Madara throughout much of his life. Madara wears a cowl neck robe and shinobi pants, with red samurai armor over top. Finding red armor can be difficult, so using red paint over light colored armor can help you achieve the same look.

Lena Luthor from Supergirl

Lena Luthor from Supergirl

Did someone say #bosslady? Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) is the CEO of L-Corp, a company she took over from her brother Lex, the self-proclaimed greatest criminal mind. When their agendas align, Lena is a staunch ally of Supergirl and her friends; independently, she considers Kara Danvers (Supergirl’s alter ego) a dear friend.

Lena’s outfits on The CW’s Supergirl reflect her businesslike attitude, revolving around dressy blouses, pencil skirts, and blazers. This tutorial shows you how to recreate two of her more formal outfits: one consisting of a blazer set, buttoned-down blouse, and vest; and one that incorporates a more adventurous sheer lace top that reminds me of one of Katie McGrath’s more medieval roles.

Emily from Little Bear

Emily from Little Bear

In the summertime, Emily (voiced by Jennifer Martini) visits her grandmother’s home near the forest where Little Bear and his anthropomorphic animal friends live. There, they have a slew of adventures together, whether they’re going to the moon or contemplating the existence of mermaids. (“That’s the thing about mermaids … you never can tell!”) In the show, Emily is apparently seven years old, and dresses like a young girl from the early twentieth century. Recreating her outfit in contemporary adult women’s clothes can be, as Little Bear would say, “Iiiinteresting.”

Cancer

Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd) is the zodiac’s cardinal water sign and 4th on the zodiac wheel. Cancer is symbolized by the crab which expresses their versatility. As a crab can travel from land and sea, Cancer can be both emotional and sensitive as well as an active force of creativity. They simply get things done, all while taking care of others! Being ruled by the moon gives cancers a maternal characteristic. They love to protect those they care for. Their downfall is when they begin to care too much and start to become possessive of others. This costume uses deep reds and blues with a pop of color on the lips to symbolize Cancer’s adaptability. It is a great DIY choice for any Cancer on Halloween night.

Emmy from Dragon Tales

Emmy from Dragon Tales

Emmy (voiced by Andrea Libman) is the no-nonsense older sibling in Dragon Tales. She is usually the one to notice when something is wrong as well as the one to keep a calm head and look for a solution. Some might call her bossy. But that’s just what happens when you and your little brother spend your free time in a mystical land full of talking dragons and adventure!

Dressing up as Emmy is fairly easy. You’ll need a long brown wig with bangs. Emmy wears her hair back in a pony tail tied with an elastic tie that is the same red as her t-shirt. A denim jumper dress makes up the rest of her costume in addition to white socks and red high tops. You can round out the costume with a plush dragon and a dragon scale necklace like the one Emmy and Max use to jump between worlds.
