Skull Boy from Ruby Gloom

Skull Boy (voiced by Scott McCord) is a character in the cartoon Ruby Gloom. With no clear idea on who his family is, he is in a constant state of change. Some days he believes he is descended from a long line of actors and the next he is descended from astronomers. This leads to many, many costume changes. But through them all, there is one outfit he comes back to and it is this one. Ox blood converse, grey jeans, a teal belt with large skull belt buckle, a black turtleneck, and fingerless gloves.

Cosplayers can opt for a full mask like the one pictured – one that’s more silly than scary just like Skull Boy himself – or they use makeup and/or prosthetics to achieve the character’s bony appearance.

John Moore from The Alienist

John Moore (portrayed by Luke Evans) is a newspaper illustrator and friend of Dr. Laszlo Kreizler on TNT’s The Alienist.  John can be melancholy and prone to self-destructive behavior as the result of a broken engagement and the death of his younger brother many years before.  John uses his skills as an illustrator to create crime scene documentation that prove helpful to Dr. Kreizler and Sara Howard as they continue their investigations.  John comes from a wealthy family and dresses the part well.  If you are recreating his look, don’t be afraid of mixing patterns and colors in traditional Victorian silhouettes.

Arthur Koblenz Dallas From Alien

Arthur Koblenz Dallas (played by Tom Skerritt) is the captain of The USCSS Nostromo in Alien. Dallas was brash in making decisions and ultimately made choices that fatally harmed the group and himself. Dallas’s western style work jacket is his most identifiable characteristic.

Nate Jacobs from Euphoria

Nate Jacobs played by Jacob Elordi is a major antagonist in the HBO series Euphoria. He is your stereotypical high school jock. The East Highland star quarterback is well known for his toxic behaviors. His father Cal Jacobs is equally toxic and has raised Nate to push down his emotions leading to him usually exploding with anger. Nate struggles with his sexuality and has a lot of internalized homophobia. It seems he also knows something about his own father’s sexuality which has been a long-kept family secret. Nate is very manipulative and abusive towards his on and off again girlfriend Maddy Parez. The two don’t seem to stop sneaking around and getting back together. Nate’s style is super simple and preppy. The attire is casual but very well kept. This costume should be easy to put together even as a last-minute Halloween costume. It would work great as an addition to a Euphoria group costume.

Jessie from Brawl Stars

Romano Hetalia

Romano from Hetalia

Lovino Vargas, also known as South Italy or Romano, is a side character in Hetalia: Axis Powers. In contrast to his younger brother, Feliciano, he is rude and unaffectionate. But behind his tough act, he’s just as clumsy and cowardly. He has assimilated Spain’s culture because Spain raised him. Unlike Feliciano, he hates Germany. Attach the the pipe cleaner onto the wig and bend it to make Romano’s upwards curl.

Lestat de Lioncourt from Interview with a Vampire

Lestat de Lioncourt from Interview with the Vampire

Lestat de Lioncourt (played by Tom Cruise in the movie Interview with a Vampire) is a French-born vampire. Turned sometime around the French Revolution He did not want to be turned and was not warned prior to either his turning or the death of the vampire that made him what he was. As such he didn’t have much knowledge of wider vampire customs and culture until after he had already turned Louise and, later, Claudia.

He has a volatile temper that flares when his lust for earthly delights is denied. His character is tempered later by knowledge and maturity. But in the first film he is very much a pleasure seeker tired of seeking out thrills alone. And when he is challenged, the results are always destructive.

In life and undeath Lestat is a fashionable man. He wears his long wavy hair either down or back in a bun. Per the fashion of his time he wears a billowing white shirt, a brocade wist coat, a frock coat, knee high white socks, knee breeches, and buckle shoes. And, of course, his costume would not be complete without a pair of fangs.
