Sam Manson’s School Dance Outfit from Danny Phantom

Sam Manson (voiced by Grey DeLisle) is the best friend and eventual girlfriend of Danny Fenton on the Nickelodeon animated show Danny Phantom.  Sam is a self-proclaimed goth and ultra-recyclo-vegetarian obsessed with the macabre.  As such, her usual attire is very edgy.  When she attends a school dance, however, she manages to look the part without giving up her signature goth look.  To recreate her dance outfit, you’ll need to get a little creative with layering different pieces.  Start with a tube top in a purple hue and then add a fishnet long-sleeved shirt over it before putting on your black corset. You may have to be willing to sacrifice parts of the mesh in order to cut the fishnet shirt to fit under your corset so it doesn’t stick out.  You’ll finish the look with a purple skirt, which you can add glitter to if you’d like, a black wig, and purple makeup.

Joy Wang from Everything Everywhere All at Once

Joy Wang (played by Stephanie Hsu) is the daughter of Evelyn and Waymond in the A24 film Everything Everywhere All at Once.  Joy has a fairly strained relationship with her mother Evelyn; the two often butt heads over a variety of things, including Joy’s desire to introduce her girlfriend to her grandfather.  As originally introduced, Joy favors baggy clothes and has a penchant for comfortable flannel shirts.  Her costuming gets pretty wild, though, when she becomes Jobu Tupaki, an interdimensional villain Evelyn must stop from destroying every universe that exists.  As Jobu, Joy wears a multitude of colorful and unique ensembles.  It might not be possible to completely recreate any one of them in full, so don’t be afraid to go a little wild and interpret one of her looks to make your own.

Jade West from Victorious

Jade West is a character on the Nickelodeon series, Victorious. She attends Hollywood Arts to pursue a career in singing, acting, and scriptwriting. Rebellious and resilient, Jade has no problem speaking — or shouting — whatever’s on her mind, even if it’s rude. She gets annoyed easily and possesses a sadistic sense of humor. She is also obsessed with scissors. Jade particularly likes pushing Tori’s buttons, but they’re friends — for the most part. She is dating Beck Oliver, and while their relationship goes through ups and downs, they always come back to each other. Her fashion reflects her dark and edgy personality, complete with teal highlights and an eyebrow piercing. If you don’t have your eyebrow pierced, use silver liquid eyeliner to draw a dot above and below the brow for a good illusion.

ranni the witch from elden ring

Ranni the Snow Witch from Elden Ring

Ranni, also known as the Snow Witch (voiced by Aimee-Ffion Edwards) is a character in the Elden Ring video game.  Ranni provides the Tarnished with the Spirit Calling Bell after receiving the Torrent from Melina. Ranni’s costume includes an oversized hat that can be difficult to pin down unless you purchase a pre-made cosplay set.  If you’re looking to build your own costume, you may need to scale down the hat size or scour handmade shops on Etsy.  Either way, adorning the brim with an adjustable silver headpiece can help it look more like Ranni’s from the game.  Whether you decide to make your own costume with different pieces such as a medieval-inspired dress and faux-fur trimmed cloak or purchase a full set pre-made, you can always take your outfit to the next level by adding pale blue body paint and a matching wig.  Likewise, if you’d like to create extra arms–Ranni has four–you can follow a tutorial like this one if you’re feeling a bit crafty.
