Cataleya Restrepo from Colombiana

Cataleya Restrepo (played to perfection by Zoe Saldana) knew her life’s path from a young age. When her father’s employer ordered a hit on her family, only Cataleya made it out alive. The little girl – who once dreamed of being Xena, Warrior Princess – dedicated her life instead to ending the people who took her family from her.

Her line of work means that she has a wide wardrobe. Whatever it takes to get the job done.

The first outfit we see her in is a party dress, black bra, short wig, and gold heels with red bottoms. Red-bottomed shoes tend to be expensive however so you’ll have to DIY your own with some standard gold stilettos and red acrylic paint. It’s a cover, of course. And as soon as she’s alone she strips off the dress and puts on a black catsuit she concealed in her dress in order to assassinate a target housed in another part of the police precinct she was brought to.

A second outfit is a black bathing suit with sleeves, allowing her to swim more easily through a very large tank housing two sharks. A long dark with tied back in a bun is the only other piece you will need for this costume along with invisible shoes such as those in this tutorial.

When she is dressed as herself, though, Cataleya opts for highly detailed black leather jackets, skinny jeans, heeled ankle boots, and comfortable flowing tees. She typically wears her hair down which you can recreate with a long, dark wig styled with waves. Her guns are not easy to see in these outfits, so a shoulder holster is most likely what she uses since she keeps her jackets closely fitted.

Charly from The Long Kiss Goodnight

In the movie The Long Kiss Goodnight, Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) is a small town school teacher who suffers from amnesia living with her boyfriend and young daughter.  After she thwarts a would-be attacker in her own home, Samantha discovers she is actually a highly-trained CIA assassin named Charlene “Charly” Baltimore.  Her transformation into her true self becomes especially evident when Charly ditches her long, red locks for a short bleach blonde bob and she begins tracking down the bad guys responsible for kidnapping her daughter.

Elektra

Elektra was once the privileged daughter of a Greek ambassador who becomes a ruthless assassin after her father is killed during a kidnapping rescue. She’s a skilled fighter who’s even more lethal when she wields her twin sais.

River Tam

In the Firefly series, River Tam is on the run from the Alliance with the help of the Serenity crew. She possesses both lethal and psychic skills which make her a powerful weapon that the Alliance wants back at all costs.

Ezio from Assassin’s Creed II

In Assassin’s Creed II, Desmond uses an improved version of the Animus to view Ezio Auditore da Firenze, a nobleman from the late 15th century in Florence. Ezio witnesses the execution of his father and brothers by order of a corrupt official named Borgia and sets out for revenge against him and the Templars.

Altair from Assassin’s Creed

In Assassin’s Creed, Desmond Miles uses a machine called the Animus to control the actions of his genetic ancestor Altaïr ibn-La’Ahad. Altaïr must keep a low cover while assassinating ten Knights Templar, all while the Third Crusade rages in the background.

Agent 47

Agent 47 stars in Hitman, the popular game series and less successful movie (Timothy Olyphant). Kidnapped by the Organization and trained from childhood as an assassin, he finds himself ensnared in a conspiracy involving both Interpol and the Russian military.
