Liz Sherman from Hellboy

Liz Sherman (played to acclaim by Selma Blair) is the pyrotechnic female lead in Hellboy. She largely plays the role of Hellboy’s long-time love interest but her reach extends much further than that. Her abilities make her incredibly dangerous – dangerous enough to take out demi-demon monsters with a penchant for resurrection – but she herself is a peaceful and kind-hearted person.

Liz sports two looks throughout the movie. The first is an all-black look of boots, pants, a loose-fitting sweater, a peacoat, a scarf, and a beret. Accessories for this outfit can be an Americano (no cream or sugar) and a Polaroid camera. Her other look is a set of plain red scrubs seen after she is tricked into setting fire to her asylum by Rasputin’s magic. They are both very basic looks that are still classic Liz Sherman.

Becky from Sin City

In Sin City, Becky (played by Alexis Bledel) is a working girl in Old Town. She has just started working the street and is new to the game. We find out she has mostly been doing sex work to support her mom. Becky’s downfall is caring about her own well being more than the well of others. Her naive nature also allows her to be manipulated by the mobsters. She ends up making a deal with a Wallenquist for her mother’s protection in exchange for the lives of Gail, another working girl, and Dwight McCarthy an affiliate. She confesses to be a traitor and her justice is later served by the other girls. Becky dresses in almost all leather with a light pink corset like top. Her most notable style choice is her heavy jewelry with layered crosses.

The Rumor from The Umbrella Academy

I heard a rumor that you want to cosplay The Rumor from The Umbrella Academy using items from Amazon. Oh, you do? Well, you’ve come to the right place! The Rumor, real name Allison Hargreeves is one of seven super-powered siblings from the dysfunctional Umbrella Academy family. Her ability? Making anyone do anything she says, so long as she prefaces her statement with “I heard a rumor….” But can someone as narcissistic and manipulative as The Rumor handle the great power and responsibility that comes with her job?

The Seance from The Umbrella Academy comic

The Seance from The Umbrella Academy

Long before Netflix introduced us to the endearingly flamboyant junkie Klaus Hargreeves on The Umbrella Academy, his comic book counterpart The Seance was wearing all-black, levitating barefoot, and possessing people’s bodies with his soul. This version of The Seance opts for more comfortable, albeit still eccentric, costume and opts for no shoes to enhance his necromancer abilities.

Allison Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy Season 2

Allison Hargreeves is a character from the Darkhorse comic series, The Umbrella Academy. In the Netflix adaptation of the same name, she is portrayed by Emmy Raver-Lampman. Known as Number Three or “The Rumor,” Allison can persuade anyone to do anything simply by saying “I heard a rumor.” In the second season, she ends up in the 1960s and starts working at a hair salon. She gets married to Ray Chestnut, changing her surname from Hargreeves to Chestnut. She has to deal with the racism of the era as well as hiding her powers from her husband. When the Hargreeves siblings reunite, she’s forced to tell him the truth. Compared to Allison’s original subdued look, new sense of style fits with the decade, opting for bangs and trading black leather for vibrant colors.

Ben Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy

Ben Hargreeves is a character from the Darkhorse comic series, The Umbrella Academy. In the Netflix adaptation of the same name, he is portrayed by Justin H. Min. Known as Number Six or “The Horror,” Ben was able to unleash monsters from other dimensions to attack his enemies. We only see Ben as a ghost through Klaus’ clairvoyance because he died prior to the events of season one. He acts as the voice of reason for Klaus, coaxing him away from drugs and alcohol. In the second season, Ben plays a much larger role. He learns how to possess others, which saves Vanya from causing another apocalypse. He has a heart to heart moment with her before going towards the light and crossing over for good. When the Hargreeves siblings jump forward in time, they end up back in the academy, and see a portrait of Ben over the mantel. The cliffhanger is Ben being alive in this timeline and not recognizing his siblings in the new Sparrow Academy.

Nancy Callahan from Sin City

Nancy Callahan played by Jessica Alba was abducted as an 11 year old girl and miraculously saved by John Hartigan. That night John was framed for the abduction of Nancy and for years she wrote him letters in jail. Years have passed and Nancy has grown up. She is now a Stripper at Kadie’s Club. This Nancy costume is a bit of a casual rendition. You can take parts and pieces from the lingerie set. Use the bra, cuffs, and use the garter as a belt over the leggings. The bullet belt can be wrapped lower on the hips. Nancy has basic makeup on with glossy lips.

Hellboy (Ron Perlman), real name Anung Un Rama, is a demon summoned to earth by Nazi occultists. Don’t let his horns, red skin, tails and cloven hooves fool you. He’s well meaning and actually has a sense of humor.
