Kate Dibiasky from Don't Look Up

Kate Dibiasky from Don’t Look Up

In the Netflix satirical film Don’t Look Up, Jennifer Lawrence portrays Kate Dibiasky, an astronomy Ph.D. student who discovers a massive comet hurtling toward earth. Kate goes on a campaign with Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) to warn humanity of the impending extinction event. Unfortunately for the astronomer duo and for all life on earth, their warning is not taken seriously. Kate spends the entirety of the film freaking out, but definitely looks cool while doing it. The film’s costume designer went for a punk-scientist look, giving Kate a double nostril piercing and red bob with shaved temples and micro-bangs. See the below guide inspired by Kate’s most memorable outfits. I recommend the leopard print if you’re in a *f— it we’re all gonna die* kinda mood. Who knows, maybe Timothée Chalamet will show up and let you make out with him.

Carmina Mora from Dead by Daylight

Carmina Mora from Dead by Daylight

Carmina Mora, aka The Artist, was a young artist and Chilean political revolutionary who grew up in a troubled home where it seemed like her only allies were the crows (which she did not realize were servants of the Entity of Dead by Daylight). She used her art to assuage the guilt of her younger brother’s death and to fight against political corruption and the disappearance of artists under their regime. Unfortunately, she and her friends were eventually kidnapped and tortured, Carmina herself getting her tongue and hands cut off. As she lay dying, the crows came to save her, only to swarm without mercy on Carmina’s tormentors and friends alike. Carmina ended up lost in her own guilt and now is crow-like in appearance, save for her inky hands, now the weapons of destruction for the Entity instead of tools to create and inspire.

A once beautiful and artistic woman, Carmina’s tight red dress is now torn and covered in feather-like leather pieces, which can be recreated by hand or by repurposing leather pauldrons. You can use liquid black liner to imitate the inky steaks on her face/body and latex gloves to imitate her inky arms.

pepa madrigal from encanto

Pepa Madrigal from Encanto

Pepa Madrigal (voiced by Carolina Gaitán) is a member of the magical Madrigal family in the Disney animated film Encanto.  The aunt of Mirabel, Isabela, and Luisa, Pepa possesses a magical power that allows her to control the weather.  Her husband, Félix, has no magical ability of his own, but his fun-loving attitude helps balance out his wife’s moods so her powers don’t get out of control.  It’s pretty easy to find Pepa’s dress made for a children’s costume, but if you’re looking to create her outfit as an adult, focus on finding dresses with similar colors and silhouettes like yellows and oranges with ruffles.

Tawny Madison-Gwen DeMaerco from Galaxy Quest

Tawny Madison / Gwen DeMarco from Galaxy Quest

Played to perfection by Sigourney Weaver, Gwen DeMarco is the perfect “Galaxy Quest” parody to every communications officer in Star Trek. Woefully under-appreciated despite a talent for alien languages, communications officers are usually accused of just “repeating the computer”. And DeMarco is sick of it!

You might not be headed for a starship, but you can still get DeMarco’s look. Start with a blonde wig, a red tank top, and grey boots. Snag a grey flight suit and some red paint for the details of a Galaxy quest suit. Add on a Galaxy Quest patch, grab your communicator, and you’re ready to go.

holly hale from scary movie 4

Holly Hale from Scary Movie 4

Holly Hale (played by Carmel Electra) is a character in the parody film Scary Movie 4.  Holly is blind, a parody of Ivy Elizabeth Walker from the M. Night Shyamalan film The Village.  Holly’s Amish-inspired costuming is much more overtly sexy than the real thing, so it might be difficult to find an exact match for her blue prairie dress.  But you can focus on matching the print, silhouette, or neckline if you can’t find one that meets all the requirements at once.  Pairing your dress with a wooden walking stick, short red wig, and a good sense of humor will top off the look.  If you’re more interested in recreating the sexy lingerie costuming Holly reveals in the film, a lace bodysuit can add a little extra coverage than the original.

Molly from the Big Comfy Couch

Molly is a character in The Big Comfy Couch, a Canadian children’s show from the 90s. She is the living clown ragdoll who acts as a sidekick Loonette. They met when Loonette found her in a barrel and adopted her. To Loonette’s disbelief, Molly believes dust bunnies are real. Although she is mostly silent, only nodding or shaking her head, she does communicate through animated speech bubbles.
