Women

Midna from Zelda

Midna (voiced by Akiko Koumoto) is the former leader of the Twili people. Though her people are known for wielding great magic she has been stripped of hers and – for most of the franchise – is trapped in her imp form. Both her imp form and her true form make for excellent cosplay costumes!

For her imp form you will want to find a custom cosplay headpiece from Etsy. Worn over a yellow spiked wig it gives you the most iconic part of her appearance. From there face paint and a light blue body suit modified with black fabric paint gives you the rest of her look.

If you want to cosplay her true form you will need a ginger wig that you style in the unique manner Midna prefers to wear it. A black bikini top , black wrap skirt, and black cloak finish off her clothing. You can use body paint to achieve the blue-skinned look of her concept art or you can choose to stick with your natural skin tone if body paint is not appealing!

Andy from The Old Guard

Andromache of Scythia, better known as Andy (played by Charlize Theron), is the leader of an immortal mercenary force in Netflix’s The Old Guard.  At 6,000 years old, Andy has seen her fair share of conflict.  Andy is protective of her comrades Booker, Joe, Nicky, and their newest member Nile.  Andy’s look consists of dark colors and practical pieces designed to protect her in combat, as well a short-cropped haircut.

Zooey the Fox from Sonic Boom

Zooey the Fox from Sonic Boom

Zooey the Fox (voiced by Zooey Deschanel) is a kind-hearted and compassionate fox on Bygone Island in the show Sonic Boom. She is the apple of Tails’ eye though it takes a little time for her to warm up to him. Once she does, though, they’re the cutest couple on the island!

Zooey’s costume can be worn one of two ways. You can use a yellow body suit to get the “full fox” look or you can leave it off and just use the yellow ears and tail along with Zooey’s blonde wig, red dress, red bracelets, and red slip-on shoes.

Lori from Total Recall

Lori played by Sharon Stone in Total Recall is a major antagonist. She is a spy working for Vilos Cohaagen and pretending to be Douglas Quaid‘s devoted wife. Lori is in the middle of exercise when  Doug rushes home after a Rekall appointment turned to violence. He exclaims to Lori his friends and others were now trying to kill him. Lori tells him to stay calm leaves the room to go get help. She returns with bullets and starts shooting at him. Lori tells Quaid he has had a memory implant before and years of his memories are simply fictional. Lori was never his wife to begin with and simply was there to keep an eye on him. Lori tries to trick him one last time and tells Quaid that she would like to show him what kind of woman she really is. Quaid does not trust her and soon realizes she has called for back up. He knocks Lori out and escapes. One of the men approaching turns out to be Lori’s real husband Richter. Lori wears Jane Fondaesque work out gear and mixes bright colors with suspender leggings. This costume is a simple easy choice for Halloween night or any sci-fi movie convention.

harleyquinn-dcuniverse-character

Harley Quinn from DC Universe

Harley Quinn is the protagonist of her own self titled series on DC Universe. You might recognize her voice actress, Kaley Cuoco, from The Big Bang Theory. After splitting up with the Joker, Harley forms her own league of villains, including King Shark, Clayface, Doctor Psycho, and Cy Borgman. The show follows her misadventures of taking down the Joker. Eventually, Harley develops a romantic relationship with Poison Ivy.

Morana from Castlevania

Morana voiced by Yasmine Al Massri in the Netflix animated series Castlevania is one of the show’s antagonists. She is a member of The Council of Sisters and serves as both the strategist and economist. Morana has been the face ruling Styria while Carmilla has been away. Morana and Striga work in unison to keep the kingdom running. The two have been romantic partners for a very long time and rely on each other for thoughtful decision making when it comes to the kingdom. Morana’s color schemes include royal blue, white, gold, and wine red. For this outfit, I suggest closing the Royal Blue Long Sleeve Bolero Cardigan with the Gold Stone and Chain Brooch. If you’d like you can look up tutorials to do a full eyelid winged liner look with the blue eyeliner. Another important tip is that you can use your everyday liquid foundation on the Long Elf Ears. Dab it on with a beauty blender so it will match your skin tone. This ornate costume will surely have you standing out from the crowd at any cosplay event.

Magda from Penny Dreadful City of Angels

Magda from Penny Dreadful: City of Angels

Magda (played by Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones fame) is a shapeshifting demon with a taste for meddling in the affairs of mortals. She has several looks throughout the show, three of which have been recreated here.

For Elsa, you will need a blonde wig and a dress in the style of the 1930s. The heels for this costume can also be worn with the costume for Alex, the next person. As Alex is older and a personal assistant her clothes are a little more formal. She wear a wool skirt and blazer along with a white button up shirt.

If you want to dress as Magda in her natural form, you’ll want a sweeping black dress, black button boots, and an auburn wig. Her makeup is more stark in this form as well while both Alex and Elsa wear more natural looks.

kitty pryde xmen character

Kitty Pryde

Katherine “Kitty” Pryde, aka Shadowcat, is a member of the X-Men. Her powers include phasing and intangibility, which lets her simulate levitation. In the comics, she joins the Guardians of the Galaxy and actually takes over as Star Lord. In the Marauders series (not related to the Marauders in Harry Potter, but wouldn’t that be a cool crossover!), she’s currently known as Red Queen. The comics also highlight her Jewish heritage. And did you know her companion, a purple dragon named Lockheed, is actually a highly intelligent alien?

taylor swift character

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is an American singer/songwriter. From “Love Story” to “You Belong with Me,” her songs narrate her personal and romantic life. She started out as a country singer, but her current music fits more of the pop genre. Taylor is one of the world’s best selling music artists and the highest earning female musician of the 2010s. Some of her hit albums include Red, Speak Now, 1989, and her most recent album, Lover. As most musicians, Taylor’s style has evolved throughout the years, so we have three looks from each era of her career. You can go classic country pop with her long hair and cowboy boots, Red style with a black fedora and red flats, or a modern T-Swift with a glittery dress.

sabina wilson from charlies angels

Sabina Wilson from Charlie’s Angels (2019)

Sabina Wilson (played by Kristen Stewart) is a rebellious Angel in Elizabeth Banks’ 2019 reboot of the Charlie’s Angels franchise.  An heiress and former criminal, Sabina is fiercely loyal to her fellow Angels, including Jane and Elena, and credits the program for saving her from a life behind bars.  Sabina’s style changes wildly throughout the film depending on the needs of her job, providing a wide range of costume options for everyone’s tastes.  Many of the pieces Stewart wears as Sabina are high-end and difficult to find, so a little creativity and flexibility may be required to recreate her looks on a budget.
