Nicolas Cage from Willy’s Wonderland

Nicolas Cage plays the silent protagonist of the trippy horror movie Willy’s Wonderland.  When he finds himself with a flat tire, he’s offered an easy gig; clean the amusement park Willy’s Wonderland overnight and his car repairs will be paid for.  However, the task proves to be far from simple when the blood-thirsty animatronic creatures begin coming to life.  Cage’s costume has two main phases; as the Drifter at the beginning of the film, he wears sunglasses and a leather jacket with red stripes down one sleeve over a grey henley.  He swaps the henley and the jacket for a Willy’s Wonderland brand t-shirt when he agrees to be the Janitor.  Finding exact matches for the jacket and t-shirt can be tough, though replicas can be found.  Otherwise, it’s okay to use pieces that are close, even if they aren’t perfect.  Don’t forget to top off your look with a black digital watch and oval belt buckle.

Angela from Stranger Things

Angela (played by Elodie Grace Orkin) is a minor antagonist in the fourth season of Stranger Things.  A bully who picks on “Jane” at her new school in California, Angela has all the hallmarks of a stereotypical mean girl; pretty, popular, and cruel.  There are two costumes you could choose to recreate for her–the pink outfit she wears at school or the one she wears to the roller rink.  The first consists of a bleached denim skirt, pink and white striped blouse, pink beaded earrings and necklace, as well as scrunched-up white socks and white keds.  At the rink, she wears a teal bodysuit with pink shimmery shorts, multicolor star earrings, and a set of holographic bracelets.  You can use a blouse instead of a bodysuit, but may want to pin the hem to the inside of your shorts to make it look more fitted.  If you want to go as Angela after Jane takes her revenge with a roller skate, don’t forget a little blood gel to complete the look.

Barbie (2023)

Barbie (played by Margot Robbie), one of the most iconic toys in existence, is now getting the live-action treatment in her own film.  Cast out of Barbieland for not being perfect enough, Barbie finds herself transported to the real world alongside Ken.  Barbie’s outfits are bright and outlandish, perfect for a doll.  Getting exact matches for the costumes is going to be almost impossible, so focus on recreating the look as closely as you can while channeling the overall vibe.  You can use some iron-on star patches to add details to her pink cowgirl outfit, and if you don’t feel like rollerblading in your costume all night, a pair of neon high-tops can be easily swapped in.
