Kid Cosmic

What do you do when you’re nine years old and trying to make sense of the world after you lose your parents? You turn to stories. And what do you do when the chance to be like the heroes in your stories literally lands in your small town? You take up the challenge with your friends joining you along the way.

In Kid Cosmic, the Kid has an active imagination and a great sense of justice. He also, as it turns out, knows how to turn everyday clothes into a uniform fit for heroes. A shoulder length blonde wig give you the lanky locks Kid sports while yellow-tinted sunglasses and headphones with an antenna make up most of his accessories. A black cape and white baseball shirt with yellow sleeves pairs with black athletic shorts striped with white and blue sneakers to round out his uniform while a yellow leather holster and, of course, the green power stone are the final keys to the perfect Kid Cosmic cosplay.

Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon

A football player isn’t the most likely interplanetary hero. But he might just be the one Earth needs with Ming the Merciless pushes the moon closer to our planet in an attempt to destroy it. Thankfully Dr, Zarkov finds Flash Gordon (played by Sam J. Jones) and takes him to the planet Mongo to save all of humankind!

It might sound like a stretch. But, hey, it was the ’80s. And it makes for a really great closet cosplay.

You’ll want to start with a blonde wig, tan slacks, a brown leather belt, and white sneakers. After that all you need is the signature Flash Gordon t-shirt and you’re ready to save the galaxy!

Chanticleer from Rock-a-Doodle

Chanticleer from Rock-a-Doodle

Chanticleer (voiced by Glen Campbell) is the Elvis Presley of roosters. Pretty literally. His character from the 1991 animated film Rock-A-Doodle is clearly based on the beloved late crooner, complete with a plume that he dyes black after making it big in the city. And just like Elvis he has both a simple country look and a slick city look, both of which are easily adapted for either male or female cosplayers.

For Chanticleer’s country look you’ll want a white button down shirt, a black belt, jeans, and either yellow boots or costume chicken feet, depending on the look you’re going for. You’ll also want to style your hair in a pompadour and use red spray dye or opt for a long red wig to simulate his plume, as well as his red, green, and purple tail. If you want a more chicken-esque look you can also get a fake beak.

If you want Chanticleer’s City look you’ll need purple pants and a matching belt, a red cowboy shirt, and either a black pompadour wig or a long black wig. You can use the same chicken feet as his country look as well as the belt and the beak, if you’re using one. If you wear boots, however, you’ll probably want to sub in some black leather ones to match the belt. And of course no big city crooner would be complete without his microphone.
