Stanley Yelnats from Holes

Stanley Yelnats the Fourth is the fourth in line to receive a curse of bad luck that has plagued his family for decades. As chronicled in Louis Sachar’s Holes and the film adaptation starring Shia LaBeouf (who is not actually a cannibal, for the record), young Stanley happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, gets framed for theft, and winds up at a juvenile detention center called Camp Green Lake. As Stanley soon learns, it is neither a camp, nor is there a lake. All there is is a great expanse of dry land, dotted with holes dug by Green Lake’s young, troubled inmates.

In the book, Stanley Yelnats starts off with a stockier build, and his weight decreases with the hard labor of his punishment. In the movie, Shia Labeouf’s scenes were filmed out of order to represent the character’s fluctuating weight. As such, his clothing becomes quite baggy with time. We recommend buying Stanley’s costume pieces in a size up.

Trevor Belmont from Castlevania

Trevor Belmont voiced by Richard Armitage in the Netflix animated series Castlevania is the main protagonist. Trevor’s lineage is that of the Belmont Clan, famously known as a family of vampire killers. He is the last known survivor of his family. During his travels, Trevor meets The Speakers in a town names Gresit. He notices how the people of the town prosecute them and tries to lend a helping hand. An elderly man tells Trevor that his grandson is in the catacombs seeking “the sleeping soldier” who would defeat Dracula’s army. Trevor finds Sypha Belnades turned to stone and defeats a cyclops in the catacombs. After returning above ground in Gresit, the two accidentally land back in the catacombs while battling monsters. This is where the find “the sleeping soldier” who is revealed to be Alucard. The three travel together to gather information and defeat Dracula’s army. Trevor’s personality is a bit cocky and sarcastic. He is especially rude to and untrusting of Alucard due to their family’s century-old history of hatred for each other.

Trevor’s costume deals with a lot of layering. I first recommend ordering two sizes of stencils or making your own with an Exacto knife and mylar paper. If you do decide to order a pre-cut stencil I would choose a small 4×4, and a larger 8×12 or bigger. These stencils will be for the Belmont Crest (you can find high res pictures on google). The smaller crest will go on the right side of your White Medieval Gothic Shirt. You will need to put cardboard in between and use a stencil brush for the cleanest look.  Now do that on the Brown Vest and/or The Black And Red Hooded Cloak using the same process. Once your crests are dry you can put on the outfit. The White shirt will go over your pants, followed by the Red Medieval Cowl (wrap it around almost like if you were tying a flannel around your hips). Keep everything in place with the black leather belt at your waist. Next put on the Red Harness and then the Brown Vest. after that, you can put on the other accessories. Once completed you will have a very original DIY costume for any cosplay event.

Loners from S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Loners are the post-fallout survivors that don’t ascribe to any faction in the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Set an an alternate history and taking place in the area around Chernobyl, each letter in the title stands for one faction of the society in The Zone. And of course Loners, well, work alone.

Loners have many different looks but they all follow a generally militaristic look. This means that most of the pieces for their costume are Army surplus. A tan tactical vest, tan tactical jacket, tan balaclava, camo pants, and tan combat boots make up the body of the costume. Many Loners also wear goggles and fingerless gloves. Accessories can include a gas mask and fake weapon, though be sure to check the costume weapon guidelines at any event you plan on attending!
