Eda Clawthorne (Red Dress) from The Owl House

Eda Clawthorne (voiced by Wendie Malick) is a rebellious witch in the animated series The Owl House.  As a young girl, Eda was cursed by her older sister Lilith.  Eda’s current appearance is a little different from her original look on the show.  Now, she wears a three-tone dress that can be tough to find an exact replica of, but by taking a little time to layer different pieces together and cut the hems to match, you can achieve a similar look with minimal effort.  Using glue or fabric tape, you can add a jewel to the front of the outfit to match Eda’s.

Jill Valentine from Resident Evil 1

Jill Valentine (voiced by Una Kavanagh) is a former member of the Special Tactics and Rescue Service (S.T.A.R.S.), an elite unit of the Raccoon Police Department, in the Resident Evil video game series.  Jill eventually leaves S.T.A.R.S. and co-founds the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance.  Though Jill has had several different costumes throughout the series, her first appearance is one of her most iconic, wearing a blue beret and matching uniform.  In the updated version of Resident Evil 1 released in 2002, Jill’s costume receives a more realistic upgrade, though it maintains many of the same components.  Whichever version you choose to emulate, you’ll want to splurge on a S.T.A.R.S. patch to update your shirt, and make sure you wear fingerless gloves and sturdy combat boots.

Missy Cooper from Young Sheldon

Melissa “Missy” Cooper (played by Raegan Revord) is the fraternal twin sister of Sheldon Cooper on the TV series Young Sheldon.  The polar opposite of her twin brother, Missy is utterly disinterested in schoolwork and often feels jealous of her brother and the attention he receives from their mother Mary.  Missy’s style varies throughout the series, but often lingers on the more tomboy-ish side of things, especially when she discovers she has a talent for baseball.  She also often dons overalls, especially in her younger days, if you find yourself more in the mood for shorts than a pinafore dress.

Diane from Lumberjanes

Diane from Lumberjanes

Diane (also known as Artemis in some circles) used to be one of the Lumberjanes’ enemy. She eventually saw the light, however, and now she’s firmly on the Lumberjanes’ side.

In addition to being an incredibly powerful goddess, Diane is also a great closet cosplay. A black wig is really the only piece that might be considered costume-specific but it’s also a versatile item that can match many different cosplays. Gold hoop earrings and bracelets as well as a purple headband serve as Diane’s accents while her outfit consists of a purple shirt, a tan vest, tan cargo shorts, white socks, and hiking boots.
