She-Hulk

She-Hulk is a superhero from the Marvel comics. By day, she’s Jennifer Walters, a lawyer working in Los Angeles and cousin of Bruce Banner. When he visited Jennifer in town, agents of a crime boss named Nick Trask shot and wounded her. Realizing she was going to die, Bruce volunteered for the blood transfusion and committed her to a hospital. The agents returned to attack, but the sense of danger activated the gamma radiation in the blood. Jennifer transformed into She-Hulk and used her newfound super strength to defeat them. Like Bruce, she can be intelligent as both Jennifer and She-Hulk. She briefly joined the Avengers and replaced The Thing in the Fantastic Four. Use the purple fabric paint to make the stripes on either side of the leotard. You can also use green fabric paint to shade the unitard to emulate her strong muscles.

Jibran from The Lovebirds

Jibran (played by Kumail Nanjiani) is the boyfriend of Leilani in the Netflix romantic comedy The Lovebirds.  Jibran and Leilani’s relationship seems to have run its course at the beginning of the movie, but they then find themselves on the run after a deadly encounter with a bicyclist and a mysterious man with a mustache.  Jibran wears several costumes throughout the film, but by far the most fun is the gold metallic jacket and “Professional Bead Hunter” t-shirt he dons in the middle.  While finding the exact shirt may not be possible, look for a fun Mardi Gras-themed t-shirt to fit the bill.  If you’re looking for something more sophisticated, Jibran’s colorful borrowed tux and gold mask are a great choice.

Billy Lee from Bad Times at the El Royale

Billy Lee from Bad Times at The El Royale

William “Billy” Lee is the main antagonist in the movie Bad Times at the El Royale. He is played by Chris Hemsworth and largely inspired by real-life cult leader Charles Manson.

The movie is set in the 1970s and this sets the tone for Lee’s costume. He has long feathered hair and a goatee that is an iconic part of his costume. Billy Lee is also know for wearing an open chambray shirt with nothing underneath. If you’re not comfortable with this look you can wear a skin-tone t-shirt beneath. Or, if you’re feeling cheeky, you can buy a shirt printed with abs like Hemsworth’s and wear that beneath the overshirt.

A long chain necklace, dark jeans, a brown leather belt with a sheathed knife, and flip flops round out the look. If you can talk people into just about anything you’ll be fully in character. A little scary… but fully in character!

Banshee from X-Men

Banshee from the X-Men

Banshee – also known as Sean Cassidy – is an Irish mutant with the power of “Sonic Scream”. He first appeared in X-Men #28 (1967) and has made a few appearanes throughout various runs since then. Cassidy is both a former NYPD officer as well as an Interpol agent. When Banshee works with the X-Men he is usually a full decade or more older than the other members of his team and is usually places in a mentor role.

Although the character appears in X-Men: First Class he is best known from his portrayal in the comics. And though the specifics of his costume have changed there are a few things that stay constant. His suit is always green with yellow markings on the chest. You can use fabric paint to get the exact markings you want so that you can choose which costume variation to go with.

His costumes also have yellow boots and yellow gloves as well as wings of some kind that attach under the arms, along the sides, and down the legs. These can be replicated using a large shawl such as the one pictured above. Older variations of Banshee also have him smoking a long-stemmed pipe, though this accessory fell out of use in the ’90s.

Kristoff in Frozen 2

Kristoff (voiced by Jonathan Groff, who you may know as King George III from Hamilton) is a character in Frozen 2. Rugged and broad shouldered, he works as an ice harvester with his reindeer companion, Sven. In the second movie, Kristoff accompanies the two sisters to the Enchanted Forest. While there, he struggles to propose to Princess Anna. His song, “Lost in the Woods,” express these frustrations. Kristoff helps Anna destroy the dam and save Northuldra. When they reunite with Elsa, he finally proposes, and Anna says yes. This outfit is similar to the first movie, just with a change of color palette to fit the autumn theme. Use hot glue to add fur to the collar, sleeves, and bottom of the t-shirt. You might also want to trim the sash as it looks very long.

Chris from Until Dawn

Chris from Until Dawn

Christopher “Chris” Hartley (voiced and acted by Noah Fleiss) is the resident geek of the Until Dawn group. He’s protective and selfless to a (potentially) fatal degree.

His costume is fairly straightforward though very warm. Basic jeans and sensible boots make up the base. Cosplayers than have to layer a white graphic tee, a blue button up, a green zip-up knit sweater, and a blue winter jacket. The shirt pictured above is not the exact shirt as that shirt does not exist. But if you can get a clear image of the shirt design from the game, many shirt makers may be able to replicate it.

Cosplayers can also add a bruise to the left side of their face if they want to recreate a mid-game look after Chris has survived a few attacks. As long as they keep the layers and the glasses, the costume will still be true to the game!
