Men

Asriel Dreemurr from Undertale

Asriel Dreemurr is the son of Toriel, who passed away before the events of Undertale. Although you won’t recognize him in the beginning, a sadistic, soulless version of Asriel — a mere shadow of his cute, docile younger self — is the first character you meet in the game.

Rocky Horror from Rocky Horror Picture Show

Rocky Horror (Peter Hinwood), or simply just Rocky, is the hunky creation of Dr. Frank N Furter in Rocky Horror Picture Show. While known for his muscular and tan appearance, he doesn’t say much. His musical number is “Sword of Damocles.” Conflict ensues when he takes an interest in Janet Weiss, much to Frank N Furter’s dismay.

Waddsworth from Clue

Wadsworth from Clue

Most people know Clue as a board game. But in 1985 it became a major motion picture with an ensemble cast led by Tim Curry. And while Tim Curry is best known as Long John Silver and Dr. Frank-N-Furter, he is just as compelling as the much more prim – though possibly no less dangerous – butler known as Wadsworth. Or perhaps he’s Mr. Boddy dressed as his butler Wadsworth. You’ll have to follow the clues and decide for yourself after watching the hilarious movie. And all three of its possible endings.

While the movie is a little topsy-turvy, Wadsworth’s costume certainly is not. He wears a traditional butler’s costume though he skips the gloves. A white dress shirt, black skinny tie, coat with tails, black vest, black pants, and black shoes makes up his entire outfit. The only other thing you need is a handy revolver. Just make sure you count the shots. Was it 1+1+2+1 or 1+2+2+1?

Super Mario Bros from NES

Super Mario Brothers from NES

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the first Super Mario Bros. game on the Nintendo Entertainment System. To mark the occasion, Nintendo is releasing a slew of Mario games, including Super Mario 3D All-Stars and a modern version of its original Game & Watch handheld. Although we’ve provided costume guides for Mario and Luigi already, you’ll notice that their sprites are slightly different compared to their original release, where they wore color-coded overalls and a rust brown shirt instead of the more familiar blue overalls and color-coded undershirts.

Hades from Disney's Hercules

Hades from Disney’s Hercules

Hades (voiced by James Woods) is the villain of Disney’s classic take on Hercules. While he doesn’t have that much in common with the actual Hades from mythology he is one of the most entertaining villains in Disney’s gallery.

Hades’ costume is pretty simple but does require some DIY. Most costume tunics don’t come in black or dark grey so you’ll have to dye a white one. The tunic linked above has a belt that you should remove before dying the tunic. Once it’s done, however, you can use the belt to keep the garment snug under the sash you fashion out of a sheet large enough to wrap around your waist and then go up over your shoulder. Although it might seem silly to use a sheet, togas in Ancient Greece were largely made of fabric squares that were belted, pinned, and folded into various designs. In this case you can use safety pins in spots nobody will see and a skull-shaped pin at the shoulder, just like hades.

A little hair gel will spike up a blue wig to look like flames while a purple-grey body paint should give your skin the same pallor Hades’ has. Finally, some sandals keep your feet safe while you put your plans in motion to rule the world!

flyers mascot gritty

Gritty

On September 24, 2018, the world was introduce to the Philadelphia Flyers’ new mascot Gritty, and the Internet has never been the same.  Gritty has become a viral sensation, thanks in large part to his appearance as a slightly off-kilter, oversized muppet.  To really take your Gritty costume to the next level, you will want to exaggerate the size of your body and accessories.  Using slippers that look like shoes, and layering your jersey and shorts over an oversized onesie will help give the appearance that you are larger than life, just like the real Gritty.  And if you don’t want to shell out for the official mascot’s jersey, a simpler replica or a jersey you already own will also suffice.

fletcher from the gentlemen

Fletcher from The Gentlemen

In the Guy Ritchie film The Gentlemen, Fletcher (played by Hugh Grant) is a journalist and private investigator who attempts to ransom information he has on Mickey Pearson through his associate Ray.  Fletcher is easily swayed by the finer things in life, which Ray uses to his advantage in order to distract the investigator during their interactions.  Fletcher wears a leather jacket, turtleneck, and tinted glasses throughout most of the film.

Dante DMC 3

Dante from Devil May Cry 3

Dante is a character from the Devil May Cry video game franchise. He is the son of the demon Sparda and human Eva, as well as the younger twin brother of Vergil. Unlike his brother, he embraces his human side more than his demonic side. He works as both a private investigator and paranormal mercenary, devoted to killing evil demons and supernatural forces. He acts as a vigilante, as his motive is to avenge the death of his mother and corruption of his brother. Dante is the main playable character in the games. Place the belt around your waist. If it’s too cold to go shirtless, wear a nude colored top.

marcus abbott from a quiet place

Marcus Abbott from A Quiet Place

Marcus Abbott (played by Noah Jupe) is the younger brother of Regan, and the son of Evelyn and Lee Abbott in A Quiet Place. Marcus has grown up in the post-apocalyptic world of the film and understands the importance of staying quiet. Noah is very close with his father and spends a lot of time foraging and exploring with him. Noah’s outfit consists of a knit hat and sweater with geometric prints that can be fun to mix and match with the plaid shirt he layers underneath.

Flash Sentry from My Little Pony

Flash Sentry from My Little Pony

Flash Sentry (voiced by Vincent Tong) is a pegasus pony from the Crystal Empire. He is still largely a mystery – at least his pony version – but fans know enough to know that he’s a favorite of none other than Princess Twilight Sparkle.

His coat is a consistent orange. This means that orange shoes, orange pants, and an orange button down are you go-to look. You can wear the button-down open over a white t-shirt for a more casual look. Just be sure not to cover up the cutie mark!

Getting Flash Sentry’s cutie mark might take a little extra work as well. You can either make you own cutie mark or order the file listed above and call local alteration shops to ask if they have an embroidery machine. Many do and can make you a patch of Flash Sentry’s cutie mark.

A blue tail, blue wig, and orange set of wings round out the look for the dashing pegasus pony!
