Verosika Mayday from Helluva Boss

Verosika from Helluva Boss is not what you would call a nice woman. Even for a succubus she has an attitude and she’s not above making everyone else deal with the consequences. Whether in human or demon form, she’s not someone you want to cross.

Cosplaying her can be a lot of fun, though. Both her human and her demon form wear black leg warmers with back stilettos while her demon form has a white-ish wig and her human form is blonde. In demon form she wear s white dress decorated with black shape that you’ll have to paint on. She also has pink horns and a pink tail. Her human form opts for a pink long sleeve drop top and matching skirt with white details that you will also have to paint on.

Satan and 2020 from Match.com

2020 has been a rough year. One that hasn’t given people many reasons to smile. But thanks to Ryan Reynolds and Match.com we have at least one: an all too timely commercial of Satan and 2020 linking up on match’s dating app.

2020 – whose icon is a picture of a murder hornet and played by Natalie Roy – matches with an entirely too bored-looking Satan played by Aaron Reed. And of course as soon as they get together all, well, hell breaks loose. 2020 steals all the toilet paper out of a public restroom, the couple breaks into both a gym (where the probably didn’t wipe down the machines) and a movie theater (where 2020 openly records the movie on her phone). They take a selfie in front of a literal dumpster fire and then watch the world end under the romantic flaming light of an apocalyptic meteor shower.

It’s pure chaos. And it is pure 2020.

This commercial gives us a great couple’s costume for 2021 – provided things improve before then. And it makes for a great way to take a darkly humorous approach to dealing with the stress of the year.

Satan’s look is really similar to Tim Curry’s Satan in the 1985 movie Legend. To recreate the look yourself you’ll want to start with some curved horns and red body paint. Black body paint makes for great accents and you’ll want black lipstick as well. That will cover your body’s upper half though can add a red bodysuit if you want more coverage than red body paint.

For the lower body you’ll want some fake fur pants and a broad leather belt that you decorate with thin chains. Matching black leather bracers on your wrists are another great accessory. And finally you’ll want those signature goat feet!

Dressing up as 2020 is a little bit easier. You start with a blonde wig with really heavy streaks. The style changes a few times during the commercial but heaving most of it down with two thin pig tails on the top is a good option. Once that’s styled you’ll need a jacket of fake red fur, a red top, red burgundy pants, and then a pair of red pleather boots. You can even bring along some toilet paper from your latest haul!

Angel Dust from Hazbin Hotel

Angel Dust from Hazbin Hotel

Angel Dust (voiced by Michael Kovach) is a demon and resident of the Hazbin Hotel. With his white fur and pink markings he has a distinct look even among demons. Never mind the four (or six) arms or venomous bite!

He might be sarcastic and reckless but the heart on the back of his head isn’t there for nothing. Angel Dust knows who his people are and he’s there for them when they need him.

There’s really no way to mimic Angel’s retractable arms but you can get the rest of his look with a little DIY and body paint. A white wig and styling gel will give you his hair style while hair chalk lets you draw in the pink spots and the heart on the back of his head. There are pre-made wigs on Etsy though they do cost a pretty penny in exchange for the predone work.

The wig sets the tone for the rest of Angel Dust’s costume. White body paint mimics his demon-pale skin. A white suit jacket can be painted with pink fabric paint to mimic Angel Dust’s. Under that you’ll want a white button down shirt and add a black bow tie. White leggings, pink gloves, and black  boots copy the rest of his look. Finish it off with a set of sharp fake teeth and you’re a dead ringer for Hell’s favorite pretty boy. Make sure you pack plenty of sass and you’re ready to go! Just try and stay out of the kind of trouble that Angel Dust usually gets into.

Stolas from Hazbin Hotel

Stolas from Hazbin Hotel

Stolas (voiced by Brock Baker in the pilot on YouTube) is a demon prince of hell in the web series Hazbin Hotel. He dotes on those he loves and is, generally, less cruel than other demons. But he is still a demon. Just one whose interests lie in the sexual rather than the generally violent. At least with other demons. With humans, however, it’s quite a different story.

You can’t quite mimic Stolas’ bird-like appearance. But you can get close! Start with a top hat and add back feathers around the rim. Add a golden crown on the brim and your hat is all set. Gray face paint and an owl mask lend you Stolas’ facial appearance. And the rest of the costume is all down to his regal sense of style.

Stolas favors an ermine-trimmed cape with a tattered hem. The cape pictured above is close but you will have to tatter the edges yourself. Under that Stolas wears a red military-style coat, grey skintight pants that are best mimicked with gray leggings, and tall black boots. Next you’ll need long black gloves with white feathers added around the top. And finally you will need a long feathered owl tail. You can either make one or use the feathered boa pictured above to mimic Stolas’ tail.

Now you’re ready to strut your stuff as a prince of Hell!
