Men

Tangerine from Bullet Train

Tangerine (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson) is Lemon‘s brother and partner in the action comedy Bullet Train.  Known as The Twins, Lemon and Tangerine are a deadly duo tasked with retrieving The White Death‘s son from a hostage situation and returning with the silver briefcase filled with ransom money.  Things get out of hand, however, when the case goes missing and The Twins try to hunt down the person responsible to save their own limbs.  Tangerine wears a blue pinstriped three-piece suit and plenty of gold jewelry, including a St. Christopher medal which he bestows on Lemon later in the film.  His vintage Rolex is a bit steep in price, but a vintage-inspired rectangular-faced watch will do the trick.  If you aren’t prepared to grow out a ‘stache of your own, a little spirit gum and the right fake one will do the trick.

Joel from The Last of Us (HBO)

Joel Miller (played by Pedro Pascal) is one of the main characters in HBO’s video game adaptation The Last of Us.  Joel is a smuggler working out of the Boston Quarantine Zone twenty years into the pandemic that resulted in the death of his daughter Sarah.  Soon, he is tasked with escorting Ellie Williams out of the QZ.  Joel’s clothing is rugged and durable.  He wears more than one outfit, but you can’t go wrong with a flannel shirt and jeans, maybe layered under a brown coat.  Most importantly, Joel always wears his green banded wristwatch, even though it no longer works, because having it fixed was his daughter’s last gift to him before she died.

Lemon from Bullet Train

Lemon (played by Brian Tyree Henry) is an important supporting character in the action comedy Bullet Train.  One half of the well-known assassin duo The Twins, Lemon is a little obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine, and less than thrilled with the code names his partner Tangerine chooses for them.  Despite this disagreement, the affection between The Twins is obvious even as they shoot their way through baddies to save The White Death‘s son and battle it out with Ladybug for the all-important silver briefcase.  Lemon wears dark jeans and a denim jacket at the start of the film, as well as an orange tie and white dress shirt.  You can top off the look with gold hoops and a rectangular smartwatch, and don’t forget to hydrate with a nice, refreshing bottle of Fiji water.

Joker from Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus

Joker (voiced in Japanese by Mamoru Miyano and in English by Matthew Mercer) is one of the key characters in the Book of Circus arc in the anime/manga Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler.

He is the technical leader of the Noah’s Ark Circus, as well as a first-string member. While he is boisterous and showy during the performances, Joker is also very serious when it comes to the more gruesome tasks he is made to do.

Joker has blueish purple eyes highlighted with black eyeliner and a tealy blue teardrop drawn on. He has heavily stylized bleached bright orange hair that’s clipped back and braided (a note on the wig, every single Joker one I found had the purple section. I would advise either trying to bleach it yourself, if you are experienced, or try and trim it and add in the hair insert clips). His outfit is very showy, as the ringmaster, and has lots of thematic diamond theming tying in the vest and pants together. As with a few of the other members of the circus troupe, he has a missing limb, so while one of his hands is gloved, the other is a replacement skeletal arm.

Chuuya Nakahara from Bungo Stray Dogs

Chuuya Nakahara (voiced in Japanese by Kishō Taniyama and in English by Nicolas Roye) is one of the top executives in the Port Mafia in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

Chuuya is Dazai‘s former partner in the Double Black team from when they were both part of the Port Mafia, and still works with him when their organizations work in tandem against a larger power. His main ability is gravity manipulation, but he also has larger god-like powers that can be overwhelming and only tamable by Dazai.

He has very pretty blue eyes and long orange fluffy hair, worn longer over one shoulder. He wears a white button up shirt, a black harness-type tie over top, a black choker collar, a grey vest, a black and brown bolero jacket, a black and brown longcoat that he wears off-shoulder, black pants, black shoes, and a pair of black gloves, all of it topped off with a black hat with a brown trim.

Misaki Yata from K Project

Misaki Yata (voiced in Japanese by Jun Fukuyama and in English by Ben Diskin) is one of the main characters in the anime/manga K Project.

Yata is the captain of the front line of the group he belongs to, HOMRA, and has the insignia of his group tattooed on his collarbone. He has a very hot-headed personality and will take every opportunity to go all out in a fight, usually using his baseball bat and skateboard in tandem. Despite being loud and aggressive at many things, he holds the members of his group very dear to himself (even Fushimi, loathe as he is to admit it).

While it’s usually covered by his beanie, he has shaggy copper red hair that fluffs out at the ends and hazel eyes. He usually wears very comfortable clothes as he’s active a lot, so the outfit we mostly see him in is a loose white sweater with blue collar detailing, green boardshorts, a red sweater tied around his waist, black socks, and blue and orange shoes. The look is finished off with a pair of white and black headphones and a black watch. Yata does wear a blue tanktop underneath the sweater, but you rarely see it unless he’s not wearing the sweater, so that’s pretty whatever you want to wear under it.

Ladybug from Bullet Train

Ladybug (played by Brad Pitt) is the protagonist of the action comedy Bullet Train.  An assassin deep in therapy, Ladybug is sent to fetch a silver case belonging to The White Death from the titular train, only for things to go wildly off the rails.  Ladybug must fight a number of others including Lemon, Tangerine, and The Hornet, in pursuit of his quarry.  Ladybug has shaggy blonde hair and boards the train with a beige bucket hat and dark-framed glasses.  His outfit also includes charcoal pants, a green jacket, white tee, and white sneakers.  The Breitling timepiece Ladybug wears in the movie can set you back a pretty penny, so opt for a more budget-friendly pilot watch instead to complete the look.

julius and vincent benedict from twins

Julius and Vincent Benedict from Twins

Julius and Vincent Benedict (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, respectively) are the unlikely title characters of the ’80s comedy Twins.  When Julius, the result of an experiment designed to create the perfect man, discovers he has a twin brother, he goes in search of Vincent, a petty criminal who is his exact opposite in almost every way.  The characters wear multiple costumes throughout the film, but some of their best looks are those they choose to match.  You can emulate their twinning style with a pal by choosing a short sleeve button-down with a busy print reminiscent of the 80s paired with a light-colored suit, brown boat shoes, and basic sunglasses.

Osamu Dazai from Bungo Stray Dogs

Osamu Dazai (voiced in Japanese by Mamoru Miyano and in English by Kaiji Tang) is one of the main characters in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

Dazai used to be a member of the Port Mafia, partnered with Chuuya, until he defected and went to join the Armed Detective Agency, the opposing organization. He has the ability to nullify other’s powers, and this has been largely beneficial with keeping Chuuya’s god powers in check.

He has fluffy brown hair and similarly colored eyes. The outfit we usually see Dazai in is semi-formal, he wears a blueish-white button up shirt, a bolo tie, a blue undervest, a black vest over top, cream pants, brown shoes, a tan longcoat, and is wrapped in white bandages all over his torso and arms.

the white death from bullet train

The White Death from Bullet Train

The White Death (played by Michael Shannon) is the boogeyman bad guy who orchestrates the events of Bullet Train.  The White Death is a larger-than-life force alluded to throughout the film, responsible for wiping out an entire crime syndicate but now known to live in seclusion following the death of his wife.  He brings together the people he deems responsible for this loss in order to exact revenge, but is surprised when his daughter is on the train as well.  The White Death is an imposing figure with long hair and a plethora of tattoos.  His two main looks are a black suit with a red demon mask in flashbacks and a long yukata-like robe over a white dress shirt and slacks when he arrives on the train.  Whichever you choose to recreate, you’ll start with a grey wig, dark slacks, and a white dress shirt.  Then, add the pieces you need to achieve either look in full.
