A neighbor of Sean and Sydney, despite her young age, Mindy is easily welcomed by the older kids, including alien Jet, even if she’s not quite old enough for space travel at the beginning of the series.  Mindy wears a turtleneck sweater and shorts layered over grey leggings.  If you want to get a little closer to her hat from the show, you can stitch a pair of blue buttons onto your bear beanie.

Once they settle in Washington state, Jet befriends Sydney, Sean, and Mindy.  Jet has red hair and wears a blue puffy coat with blue pants and grey boots.  To make his boots look a little more like they do on the show, you can wrap a red boot lace around them to give them their signature pop of color.

El Tigre from El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera

El Tigre (voiced by Alanna Ubach) is the super alter ego of Manny Rivera on the Nickelodeon animated series El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera.  Manny’s transformation into El Tigre includes some pretty stark changes, including the addition of a tiger tail, ears, and sharpened claws.  To dress as El Tigre, you can layer boots, a belt, and a red bandana over a black bodysuit.  For some extra authenticity, you can also use scar wax to add the scar Manny has over his left eye.

Gretel Grant-Gomez from Hamster & Gretel

Gretel Grant-Gomez (voiced by Meli Povenmire) is the titular protagonist of the Disney Channel series Hamster & Gretel.  Gretel is an energetic, outgoing kid who moonlights as a superhero.  Gretel’s usual attire consists of an orange skirt, and a light teal blouse with sneakers to match.  When she transforms into a superhero, her costume consists almost exclusively of shades of pink.  You can add a “G” to the front of your shirt easily with some fabric paint; just make sure it has plenty of time to dry!  No matter which version of Gretel’s costume you choose to recreate, don’t forget the blonde bob, blue headband, tall white crew socks, and trusty hamster sidekick.

Julia Argent from Carmen Sandiego

Julia Argent (voiced by Charlet Chung) is one of the key characters in the Netflix version of Carmen Sandiego.

She is an A.C.M.E. agent that was formerly part of Interpol, and one of the few people in her team from the beginning that believed that Carmen wasn’t the threat that the rest made her out to be, which lead to her helping Carmen’s team in future.

Julia is lightly freckled, with dark eyes and very short blackish-blue hair. Her main outfit she’s seen in during the series is a blue pantsuit set, a reddish orange shirt underneath, a pendant necklace, stud earrings, circular framed glasses, and chocolate brown loafers.

Apple Dumplin’ from Strawberry Shortcake

Apple Dumplin’ (voiced by Rebecca Shoichert) is a character in the Strawberry Shortcake franchise.  In the 2009 iteration, she is a cousin of Strawberry Shortcake herself who runs a blog.  She’s also best friends with Lemon Meringue and Sour Grapes.  Apple Dumplin’s look consists of a plaid skirt, white and yellow leggings, a white tee, and a yellow vest.  She accessorizes with a red knit hat, apple hair clip, and green belt.  She finishes off the look with a pair of red boots.  If you can’t find white and yellow striped leggings, a pair of pale yellow ones will also work.

raspberry torte from strawberry shortcake

Raspberry Torte from Strawberry Shortcake

Raspberry Torte (voiced by Ingrid Nilson) is a character from the Strawberry Shortcake franchise.  Originally known as Raspberry Tart, she picks up her role in the 2009 reboot of the series as owner of the Fresh Fashions boutique and a friend of Strawberry Shortcake.  Raspberry Torte has bright pink hair and wears green and pink clothes reminiscent of the berry that gives her her name.  Finding an exact match for her pink and green dress would be tough, so layer a green shirt under a pink dress and bolero to achieve a similar look.  Finding her magenta Mary Jane shoes might also be tricky, so focus on finding a pair of shoes that match the aesthetic as closely as possible.  Hot pink t-straps or a pair of pink flats can both do the trick.

Charlotte from Making Fiends

Charlotte (voiced by Amy Winfrey, the creator of the show) is one of the two main characters of the webshow turned tv show, Making Fiends.

She is a very bubbly but oblivious character, constantly causing absolute chaos for her classmate that she considers to be her friend, Vendetta.

Due to the fact that all the characters in this show are monochromatic in terms of their colors, this will be up to personality interpretation for the actual look.

I went with a blue bottom curled wig to mimic the way Charlotte’s hair curls inwards, a blue bow clip to go on top of the wig, a simplistic lolita style summer dress in baby blue, blue shoes with a white ruffle trim to match the dress, and a pair of white tights to offset the color a bit and tie in with the shoe detailing.

Vendetta from Making Fiends

Vendetta (voiced by Aglaia Mortcheva) is one of two main characters in the webshow turned tv series Making Fiends, as well as the primary antagonist.

She terrorizes her entire school with her fiends, the creatures she’s created, to the point where she pretty much runs the school because the students and all the faculty are scared of her. Charlotte, meanwhile, absolutely does not care, and is trying her absolute hardest to be her best friend, which in turn is met with Vendetta trying to (literally) destroy her.

Due to the fact that all the characters in this show are monochromatic in terms of their colors, this will be up to personality interpretation for the actual look.

I gave Vendetta a long green wig as she has pigtails that reach to about her mid-back, a simple long-sleeved green dress (there is a lighter color variation in that link, but I was a little torn on shades), black leggings to contrast Charlotte’s, green hair ties to blend with the wig, and black and bright green chunky platform boots as another contrast to Charlotte’s lace pastel blue ones.
