Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII

Cloud Strife is the main playable character in Final Fantasy VII and its remake.  Cloud wields broadswords at his primary weapons, including the massive Buster Sword.  Cloud’s appearance is similar between the two versions of the game, though more solidly black and streamlined in the 2020 remake.  To recreate his look, you’ll need a sleeveless turtleneck, wide leg pants, and combat boots, not to mention his signature blond, spiky hair and larger-than-life sword.

Judy Alvarez from Cyberpunk 2077

Judy Alvarez from Cyberpunk 2077

Artist. Fighter. Mox. Judy Alvarez has made a niche for herself in Night City after moving up from Laguna Bend with her grandparents as a child. When they left she stayed. Now she is as much a part of the city as the rest of her gang. She’s one of the best braindance technicians around but getting her work for yourself isn’t exactly easy to do. Judy has her morals. And if you don’t stack up, she’s gone.

A personality as bold as Judy’s usually comes with a lot of flash but Judy likes to keep it simple. A white tank top tied up above her navel, black leather overalls, and black high tops. She also has a number of tattoos that you can replicate using a tattoo marker and temporary tattoos.

The hard part is copying Judy’s hair. You can choose a similar style that doesn’t require buzzing half your hair off, you can mimic her style directly, or you can use a wig. And when it comes to wigs you have two options. The first is a premade wig that uses fabric to indicate the shaved area. The second option is to buy a white wig, follow this tutorial for another wig alteration originally filmed for another cosplay, and then dye the wig using pink and green Rit dye which should lock the color into the wig’s synthetic fibers.

Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2

Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2

Handsome Jack (voiced by Dameon Clarke) is one of the antagonists in Gearbox Software’s hit franchise BorderlandsHe is charasmatic, engaging, and thoroughly evil. Of course everyone loves a good villain and Handsome Jack is no exception. Of course it helps that he is modeled after two other fan favorite characters: Jack Harkness from Doctor Who and Mal from Firefly. Neither man would get along with Handsome Jack, unless of course we’re talking about their style.

There are two keys to getting Handsome Jack’s look: His mask and his layers.

You can buy a premade mask on Etsy. Or, if you want something more pliable, you can use face paint to recreate the look of his mask.

His layers are a little bit easier. Start with a long-sleeve yellow shirt and add a long white collared overshirt on top. Then put on a brown leather vest and finally a short blue coat. Once all that is in place you can finish off the clothes with black jeans and a brown belt with a large buckle, brown sneakers, and a large digital watch. The finishing touch, a brown wig, will have you set to hatch your own schemes in no time.

Soul of Cinder from Dark Souls

Soul of Cinder from Dark Souls

In Dark Souls, the Soul of Cinder is a being made up of all previous lords of Cinder. This not only makes it incredibly hard to beat but also terrifying to behold. Getting the exact look takes some painting skill and possibly wearable pyrotechnics (which we really don’t recommend).  But we’ve found pieces that will get you close!

To start you’ll want a black compression shirt and compression pants. They’re tight fitting and breathable so your clothes won’t get twisted up under your armor and you won’t overheat too quickly. On top of that you’ll want a set of knight’s armor, though we recommend plastic over metal for ease of movement. You’ll also need a set of swords to deal with the challengers you’re sure to encounter. If you’ve got a bit of extra money to spend you can get a Cinder replica helmet. They aren’t easily affordable, however, and with some paint a standard knight helmet should do the trick. And finally a can of chalky gray spray paint topped with an oxidizing effects paint kit should help give your armor the eternally burned look Soul of Cinder is known for.
