Juliet Starling from Lollipop Chainsaw

In Lollipop Chainsaw, Juliet Starling (voiced by Tara Strong) is a cheerleader who finds herself having to hack and slash her way through zombie hordes at San Romero High School. Luckily she’s armed with a chainsaw. To go all out with this look, you’ll want to include her boyfriend Nick’s severed-but-still-living head to hang on the belt of your costume.

Cassie Drake from Uncharted 4

Cassie Drake (voiced by Kaitlyn Dever) is the daughter of Nathan Drake and Elena Fisher in the Uncharted video game series.  She is a playable character during the epilogue of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.  Cassie has mid-length blonde hair and wears rectangular-framed glasses.  Her outfit consists of a flame graphic tank top layered over a red bathing suit and distressed denim shorts.  Her accessories include a red watch, braided bracelets, and a necklace with blue beads.  You can either make your own necklace or purchase one that looks similar.  Finding an exact match for her red and black glasses may not be possible, but a plain black pair looks very similar and makes for an easy substitute.

Amber from Grabbed by the Ghoulies

Cooper from Grabbed by the Ghoulies

Cooper (voiced by Steve Malpass) is the main character of the Grabbed by the Ghoulies video game.  The premise of the game is that Cooper must save his girlfriend Amber from Ghoulhaven Hall, a mansion plagued by a plethora of supernatural creatures.  Cooper is a teenage boy with light blonde, spiky hair.  He wears tan shoes, light blue jeans, and a bright green sweater with a contrasting stripe around his midsection and collar.  To recreate his look, you can go for an easier green and purple striped top, but if you’re up for a little DIY you can get a better match by taking a green sweater and adding your own details with some fabric paint.  Top off the look with jeans, boots, and a spiky wig.

Cody from It Takes Two

Cody (voiced by Joseph Balderrama) is one of the protagonists of the adventure game It Takes Two.  Cody and his wife May are in the midst of a separation when their minds are transferred into two dolls made by their daughter Rose.  They must put their issues aside to find their way back to their bodies.  Cody’s doll appearance includes green hair, an orange sweater, and patchwork pants.  Top off your wig with a green antenna headband and create your button pin from a paper plate.  You can also cut plates into the shapes of the leaves that appear throughout Cody’s costuming.  Don’t be afraid to take your crafting scissors to your sweater as well in order to achieve the perfectly imperfect look from the game.  Top it all off with some rope wound around your midsection and right forearm, as well as a pair of tan shoes.

May from It Takes Two

May (voiced by Annabelle Dowler) is one of the protagonists of the adventure video game It Takes Two.  The mother of Rose and wife of Cody, May finds her mind transported into a doll her daughter has made in the midst of her separation from her husband.  Cody is transported as well and they must work together to find their way home.  May’s doll likeness includes blue hair made of yarn, a yellow sweater with a blue button and rope details, patchwork pants, and a pair of black shoes.  She also wears black round-framed glasses.  To recreate her costume, take a pair of scissors to a turtleneck sweater.  You can style a blue wig into a bun and then wrap yarn around it to get closer to May’s appearance in the game.  You can also fashion a blue button from a paper plate, and add stitching details with the remaining yarn if you feel up for a little sewing.

bayonetta from bayonetta 3

Bayonetta from Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta (voiced in Bayonetta 3 by Jennifer Hale) is the titular witch of the PlatinumGames series.  Bayonetta is an Umbra Witch tasked with protecting the multiverse alongside her apprentice Viola in the third installment of the franchise.  Bayonetta’s costume is complex and will require a little creativity to recreate.  As a base, you’ll need black leggings with a lace cutout design and a puffy-sleeved backless shirt.  Bayonetta’s belt and skirt in the game are crafted from her own hair.  If you’d rather not collect your locks to weave a costume, a black obi sash and tutu will suffice.  Lastly, you’ll need light purple gloves, glasses, and a long black wig plaited on either side with red cord.  The gold details of her outfit, if you choose to add them, can be recreated with a glue gun, some gold glue, and applique pieces.  Be strategic about which aspects of her costume are most important to you.  You can add gold flowers to the tutu, floral applique to the gloves, and even some gold details to the heels of your shoes.  Finding a replica gun from the game can be quite expensive, so consider using a toy foam blaster that will help evoke the same feel even if it’s not an exact match.

empress of light from terraria

Empress of Light from Terraria

The Empress of Light is a Hardmode boss from the Terraria video game.  She is encountered in the Hallow.  The Empress of Light has a beautiful, prismatic appearance, despite her vicious attack style.  To recreate her look, use golden yellow body paint on your face and neck to match the color of your bodysuit.  Then, you’ll pair it with a blue monokini or cut-out leotard, gloves, boots, and ruffles worn around your upper arms, as well as a pink wig and matching pink open-front skirt.  Finally, you’ll need a pair of elf ears (which you can make appear more yellow with the same body paint used on your face), a blue unicorn horn, and gold crown.  Finally, don’t forget your impressive multicolored wings.

Momo from Stray

Momo from Stray

In the adventure game Stray, Momo is a Companion Robot and a member of the Outsiders. Momo resides in an apartment in the Slums, where he’s lonely and depressed, only a TV with poor signal to keep him company. His long Hawaiian shirt may be a reference to Max Payne, who often wore tropical shirts even in the snow.

lara croft from shadow of the tomb raider

Lara Croft from Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Lara Croft (voiced by Camilla Luddington) is back in the latest iteration of the well-known adventure game.  Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the third, and reportedly, last, game in the Survivor Timeline of the series.  Lara’s look remains as gritty and practical as in earlier installments, with dark cargo pants, fingerless gloves, and a blue and black tank top as her primary costume.  It’s unlikely you’ll find pieces to exactly match her in-game outfits, so focus on getting as close as you can.  Lara uses a pickaxe that would set you back several hundred dollars, so if you decide to accessorize with one, don’t be afraid to go with a cheaper model.
