Women

Frankie Stein

Frankie Stein is a character in the Monster High franchise. They are the child of Frankenstein’s monster. Comprised of the body parts of geniuses, they are extremely intelligent. With dolls, cartoons, and a live action movie, Frankie has many different styles. Therefore, our costume guide features a variety of pieces to assemble a unique outfit. Plaid fabric attests to a nerdy, yet preppy look. A studded belt adds punk flair. The color palette consists of black, white, and blue; the new generation features neon tones as well. Add neck bolts and stitches and you’ll be too ghoul for school.

Gin Akutagawa from Bungo Stray Dogs

Gin Akutagawa (voiced in Japanese by Shiina Natsukawa and in English by Allegra Clark) is part of the Port Mafia in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs, as well as Ryunosuke Akutagawa‘s younger sister.

Gin is one of the battalion leaders of the Black Lizard, under the instruction of the Port Mafia. Growing up on the streets with her brother, she’s learned to be very defensive, and has become a talented and silent assassin.  She has a softer and sweeter side to herself, but it’s not usually shown around the other Mafia members, aside from Ryunosuke.

She has long black hair that she wears up in a spiked ponytail with loose bangs, and the same bright grey eyes as her brother. The outfit that she wears while on duty is a grey striped tanktop, a black choker necklace, a long and tattered black longcoat with one gartered sleeve and one ripped sleeve, long sheer gloves, black pants, black heeled boots, and a crisscross layered white facemask.

Kyouka from Bungo Stray Dogs

Kyouka (voiced in Japanese by Sumire Morohoshi and in English by Cherami Leigh) is one of the secondary main characters in the anime/manga Bungo Stray Dogs.

She was originally part of the Port Mafia and very much under their control, but defected fairly early on in the series and now works with Atsushi and the rest of the Armed Detective Agency.

Her hair color is a bit different between the anime and manga (blueish purple vs black) but she usually wears it in low pigtails regardless, and has very pretty blue eyes. The outfit she wears is a red kimono with leafy detailing, and the rest of her outfit’s accessories are highlighted in reds and yellows, such as a the red straps on her sandals. Kyouka has flowers tying off her pigtails, a white headband, and she carries around her cellphone on a string around her neck with a bunny keychain attached to it.

Principal Weems from Wednesday

Principal Larissa Weems (Gwendolyn Christie) is a character in the Netflix show, Wednesday. She is the principal of Nevermore Academy as well as a former student, who was roommates with Morticia Addams. Strict and proper, Principal Williams becomes increasingly frustrated with Wednesday, who refuses to follow the rules and seems to always cause mischief.

Marilyn Thornhill from Wednesday

Ms. Marilyn Thornhill is a character in the Netflix show, Wednesday. She is the first “Normie” on the teaching staff at Nevermore Academy. She teaches botany, specifically carnivorous plants. She is the dorm mom of the Ophelia Dorm, where Wednesday and Enid reside. You may recognize this actress too: It’s none other than, Christina Ricci, who portrayed Wednesday in The Addams Family movies from the 90s.

Clawdeen Wolf

Clawdeen Wolf is a character from the Monster High franchise. She is a werewolf who attends Monster High with her brother, Claude, and her BFF Draculaura. She is loyal, confident, and energetic with a knack for sports. With dolls, cartoons, and a live action movie, Clawdeen has many different styles. Therefore, our costume guide features a variety of pieces to assemble a unique outfit. Her main color is purple, and her aesthetic is glam and fierce. Faux fur and animal print are must haves for any look.

sarah from the last of us

Sarah from The Last of Us (HBO)

Sarah Miller (played by Nico Parker) is Joel‘s daughter in the HBO video game adaptation The Last of Us.  Sarah is kind and generous, teasing her father on his birthday while making him breakfast and taking time to have his watch repaired as a gift.  Unfortunately, Sarah meets an untimely demise at the very beginning of the pandemic which sets the series in motion.  Sarah wears pale jeans with some doodled decorations on the right leg, but the defining aspect of her outfit is her Halican Drops t-shirt.  She also uses a purple backpack and wears a few adjustable bracelets on her left wrist, as well as a shark tooth necklace.

Meirin from Kuroshitsuji

Meirin (voiced in Japanese by Emiri Katou and in English by Monica Rial) is part of the housekeeping and defense staff in the anime/manga Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler.

After spending the early years of her life as an assassin, she gets taken in by Sebastian after trying to attack Ciel, but ends up being hired on as the family’s maid and defensive sniper. She is often a clumsy maid when tasked with the duties she’s formally hired as, but is a very sharp-sighted sniper when she takes off her glasses.

She has pinkish-red hair usually worn up in pigtails and topped with a maid’s headband, and has hazel eyes that are usually hidden behind the round-rimmed glasses she was gifted upon joining the staff team at the manor. Meirin’s usual outfit is standard maid-wear with a black dress and white apron combo, but the way Nina Hopkins crafted her outfit, it allows her to pin up the skirt to the apron buttons, to expose her sock gartered leg and long black lace up workboots.

Nagisa Momoe from Puella Magi Madoka Magica

Nagisa (voiced in Japanese by Kana Asumi and in English by Xanthe Huynh) is a secondary main character in the Puella Magi Madoka Magica series. For this piece I’ve chosen her magical girl outfit, but I’ll do a follow-up for her civilian outfit later.

She started off the series as a Witch and later ends up becoming a key part of the group, as well as becoming a magical girl like the others. As the youngest of the group she’s a lot more childish and cheerful, but does have serious moments.

Nagisa’s magical outfit is very whimsical like the rest of her personality, accentuated by long curly white hair worn in small pigtails sticking out of her brown cat eared hat, and big yellow/orange eyes. She wears a cropped undershirt, a pink poncho, brown bloomers with bowed suspenders attached, and she has fingerless gloves and spotted tights, with orange soles (though I did go with ballet flats just because I couldn’t find ones built in).

Enid Sinclair (Nevermore Uniform) from Wednesday

Enid Sinclair (Emma Myers) is a character in Netflix’s Wednesday. She is a werewolf student who attends Nevermore Academy. She is also roommates with Wednesday Addams. Born in California, Enid is bright, sunny, and cheerful — the exact opposite of the titular character. Although she is unafraid to stand up for those she cares about. Throughout the series, she befriends and supports Wednesday, helping her investigate the murders. Following the instructions on the bottle, use the indigo Rit dye on the blazer. Then affix the embroidered patch.
