Alicent Hightower from House of the Dragon

In the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon, Queen Alicent Hightower (played by Olivia Cooke and Emily Carey) is the wife of King Viserys I, daughter of the Hand of the King Ser Otto Hightower, and mother to Aegon, Aemond, and Helaena. She is the figurehead of “Team Green” when it comes to competing claims to the throne. After a long day of parenting and diplomacy, Alicent has been known to kick off her shoes and put up her feet.

Diane Foxington from The Bad Guys

Diane Foxington (voiced by Zazie Beetz) is a supporting character in the animated feature film The Bad Guys.  Governor Foxington is a reformed thief, formerly known as the Crimson Paw, who pursued a life in politics to help make up for her past transgressions.  Though initially skeptical of the redemption of Mr. Wolf and his associates including Mr. Snake, she eventually becomes one of their staunchest supporters, as well as Mr. Wolf’s love interest.  Diane sports several outfits throughout the course of the film, but two of her best include the grey suit she wears as governor and the black bodysuit with a hood she dons as the Crimson Paw. The latter will work as a fully black ensemble, though you can add some of the yellow striping details with tape or paint if you prefer.  Whichever look you choose to recreate, you can layer a fox mask, tail, and/or gloves under your outfit to get as close to the original as possible.

Miki Kuroda from Devilman Crybaby

Miki Kuroda (voiced in Japanese by Ami Koshimizu, and in English by Cherami Leigh), also known during the series as Miko to differentiate her from the other Miki, is one of the secondary main characters in the Netflix adaptation of Devilman Crybaby.

From childhood she was close with both Akira and the other Miki, and ran on the track team with them. Miki, along with Akira, transformed into a devilman, which drastically changed her physical appearance and personality.

In this new form, she has deep burgundy hair tied back in a high, braided ponytail, and her eyes are a light brown. For this outfit, Miki wears a sports bra type top with a black sporty bomber jacket over it, a pair of grey runners shorts with a white stripe up each side of the leg, and yellow runners shoes with a black top and a white band over the front.

Shizuku Murasaki from Hunter x Hunter

Shizuku (voiced in Japanese by Miho Arakawa and in English by Janice Roman Roku) is part of the Phantom Troupe in the anime Hunter x Hunter.

She’s a rather scatterbrained person, sometimes just ignoring her past shortcomings because she just simply forgot what they were. Despite her airheadedness, she is deceptively strong, both in her own merit, and by using her vacuum weapon, Blinky, as a blunt force striker.

Shizuku has big brown eyes, short black hair that flips out at the ends, and wears large black framed glasses that sit low on her face. She wears a black turtleneck with a gold upside-down cross necklace (one of the Troupe’s symbols) and gold bracelets over top of the sleeves, and then just normal blue jeans, a grey belt, and chunky teal shoes.

Safu from No.6

Safu (voiced in Japanese by Kiyono Yasuno, and in English by Hilary Haag) is one of the semi-main characters of the anime No.6.

At the start of the series she is Shion‘s best (possibly only?) friend, and makes some romantically inclined advances at him, though it’s unclear if it’s meant to be pursuing an actual relationship, or if she just doesn’t want to be separated from him.
She ends up becoming a very key part of what’s happening with the city later on towards the end of the short series.

Safu has almost shoulder-length dark brown hair, and brown eyes, and in this particular outfit she has an off-white long sleeved turtleneck, black leggings, brown boots, a deep red skirt, and over top of that she wears a greyish-white winter coat, with a long pink tasselled scarf.

Lucita Sky from Hero Elementary

Lucita Sky (voiced by Veronica Hortiguela) is a student at Hero Elementary in the PBS animated series. Lucita’s hero powers include flying, despite her fear of heights. She is also the leader of the Sparks Crew. Lucita’s superhero costume consists of shades of blue and purple, including purple boots and cape, and a blue skirt. The Sparks Crew shirt she wears can be found in some youth sizes through the PBS website, though none are white like she uses for her costume. Instead, you can purchase a plain white shirt and recreate the logo with fabric paint.

Pakunoda from Hunter x Hunter

Pakunoda (voiced in Japanese by Romi Park, and in English by Erica Lindbeck) is part of the Phantom Troupe in the anime Hunter x Hunter.

She’s the gun expert of the Troupe and specializes in memory reading and recalling, and when not involved in criminal activities, she loves to spend time with cats.

Paku has brown eyes and middle parted neck-length blonde hair, and her usual outfit is a very open fronted purple suitjacket with a pinkish collar, a matching skirt, and slip-on shoes that match the color of the suit’s collar.

Anastasia’s Blue Boat Dress

Anastasia is the titular character of the 1997 semi-historically inspired movie from 20th Century Fox. Meg Ryan is her speaking voice, and Liz Callaway is her singing voice.

She has several outfits throughout the runtime of the movie, but this specific one is one that she wears during the dance she has on the boat with Dimitri.

It is a light blue, short sleeved dress with white cuffs that she wears a brown belt over at the waist, and a matching blue ribbon holds her long auburn hair back. Underneath it she wears a pair of black tights, with brown boots over top. Completing the outfit is a pair of pearl earrings, and the necklace she got from her grandmother as a child.

The dress that I linked in this article is custom from the Etsy seller ArtemisiaLaFee, so please do go check them out if you’re interested.

(Also a slightly funny anecdote, while I was writing this my mom came charging downstairs excitedly yelling that she had found our copy of the movie’s soundtrack on CD, unaware that I’d been writing about that exact thing.)
