The Stranger from The Big Lebowski

In the Coen Brother’s film The Big Lebowski, The Stranger (played by Sam Elliott) is the narrator of the film.  He appears at the beginning, middle, and end, and even speaks with The Dude at the bowling alley bar while sipping on a sarsaparilla.  The Stranger is dressed like a relatively run-of-the-mill cowboy, but Sam Elliott’s trademark mustache really helps solidify the character as something special.

Loki from the Disney+ “Loki” Exclusive Clip

Everyone loves Loki, so no wonder he’s getting his own self-titled series on Disney+. Slated for a release in May 2021, Tom Hiddleston returns as our favorite god of mischief for a six episode season. It follows what happens after he escaped with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. The new clip dropped last Thursday along with the “WandaVision,” “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “What If?” trailers respectively. In addition, Marvel revealed the logos to more upcoming shows and movies. We know how quick cosplayers are to assemble the latest designs, so consider yourself taken care of with this costume guide.

Edgar Frog from The Lost Boys

Edgar Frog from The Lost Boys

Edgar Frog (played by Corey Feldman) is one of two brothers that help run their family’s comic shop in Santa Cruz, California. Of course that’s just their day job. They’re monster hunters that specialize in vampires. They’ve learned every trick in the book. The comic book, that is. It seems to be enough, though. They face down the most dangerous vampires in Santa Cruz and live to tell the tale!

The first time the audience meets Edgar he’ in a now-iconic outfit: a camouflage t-shirt, red headband, and the distressed jeans that were very common in the late ’80s (the movie came out in 1987). It’s a very comfortable costume as well as easily recognized, so long as you have Edgar’s feathered hair held back with a strip of red fabric. If you don’t have a pair of distressed jeans you can get the look with a new pair and a tutorial like this one.

For added affect you can also carry around a few wooden stakes. Just in case Edgar’s reputation precedes you!

Jeri Hogarth from Jessica Jones

Jeri Hogarth from Jessica Jones

Jeri Hogarth might have been a man in the Marvel Comics version of Jessica Jones but Carrie-Anne Moss plays him to perfection in the Netflix adaptation. She is driven, sharp, and more than a little manipulative if that’s what it takes to get what she wants. Whether she’s dealing with Jessica, a client, or her own wife Jeri always has a goal in mind that she’s going after.

It’s not surprising that a woman with such tight control over her world is also professional and sharp in the way she dresses. She favors a long camel coat over sharp dresses, usually in dark colors. She wears these with nylons, stilettos, and a leather handbag.

Firefly from The Last of Us

Fireflies from The Last of Us

The Fireflies are a paramilitary group of antagonistic rebels in The Last of Us and its sequel. They fought against military control in quarantine zones and sought a cure to CBI on their own. Though they are more organized than other rebel groups, their uniforms do vary from person to person based on what they can get their hands on. Every member, however, has the Firefly symbol somewhere on their gear.

There are two sets of paramilitary clothes pictured above. One is more of a woodland set while the other would be good in urban or snowy climates where cooler colors would blend in well. Both sets can be turned into Firefly gear through the use a Firefly patch on the clothing, decal on the gear, or dog tag added to the outfit.

Bianca Castafiore from Tintin.

Bianca Castafiore from Tintin

Bianca Castafiore is a kindhearted opera singer better known to the world as the Milanese Nightingale, although if you ask Tintin or Captain Haddock, she sounds quite awful. Herge’s heroic comic book duo seem to have a minority opinion, though, and they’ve used Bianca’s fame to their advantage while defeating globe-trotting villains. If only Señora Castafiore, who memorizes many a famous operatic piece, could get Haddock’s name right….

Captain B. McCrea from Wall-E

Captain B. McCrea from Wall-E

In Wall-E, Captain B. McCrea (voiced by Jeff Garlin) is the captain and commander of the starliner Axiom. Like the rest of humanity’s survivors on board, he’s become extremely obese and is now confined to a hoverchair, leaving management of his ship to the computer Auto. The captain teams up with Wall-E and Eve to wrest control from the evil Auto, before piloting the ship back to Earth.

Damian from Mean Girls the Musical

Damian Hubbard is a character in the Mean Girls musical. Similar to the movie, he is Janis Sarkasian’s best friend who is “too gay to function” (but it’s only funny when Janis calls him that). The two take Cady Heron under their wing to navigate the cutthroat drama of American high school. Then they realize they Cady can help take down the Plastics by posing as one of them. But when Cady starts to seriously obsess over social media and her image, Damian tries to knock some sense into her with the song “Stop.” Grey Henson originated the role on Broadway. The show modernizes Damian’s look with flannel and a drag queen t-shirt.

Angel Dust from Hazbin Hotel

Angel Dust from Hazbin Hotel

Angel Dust (voiced by Michael Kovach) is a demon and resident of the Hazbin Hotel. With his white fur and pink markings he has a distinct look even among demons. Never mind the four (or six) arms or venomous bite!

He might be sarcastic and reckless but the heart on the back of his head isn’t there for nothing. Angel Dust knows who his people are and he’s there for them when they need him.

There’s really no way to mimic Angel’s retractable arms but you can get the rest of his look with a little DIY and body paint. A white wig and styling gel will give you his hair style while hair chalk lets you draw in the pink spots and the heart on the back of his head. There are pre-made wigs on Etsy though they do cost a pretty penny in exchange for the predone work.

The wig sets the tone for the rest of Angel Dust’s costume. White body paint mimics his demon-pale skin. A white suit jacket can be painted with pink fabric paint to mimic Angel Dust’s. Under that you’ll want a white button down shirt and add a black bow tie. White leggings, pink gloves, and black  boots copy the rest of his look. Finish it off with a set of sharp fake teeth and you’re a dead ringer for Hell’s favorite pretty boy. Make sure you pack plenty of sass and you’re ready to go! Just try and stay out of the kind of trouble that Angel Dust usually gets into.
