Cruella de Vil from Cruella

Emma Stone takes on the titular role of the iconic Disney villain Cruella de Vil in the live action movie Cruella.  The film is an origin story, tracing Cruella’s beginnings to 1970s London where she was once a young fashion designer named Estella before she became obsessed with using the fur of dogs in her clothing creations–especially Dalmatians.  Cruella’s costuming is exceptional, as is to be expected of such an iconic and fashionable character since her debut in 1961’s 101 Dalmatians.  Whether you choose to emulate Estella’s redheaded beginnings, or go full villain with Cruella’s signature black and white locks, try to focus on the overall silhouette rather than getting the pieces exactly right.  And don’t forget to bring her signature attitude… brilliant, bad, and a little bit mad.

Webby Vanderquack from DuckTales

Webby Vanderquack (voiced by Kate Micucci) is a major character in the 2017 Ducktales reboot. She is the granddaughter of Bentina Beakley and adopted niece of Scrooge McDuck, whom she lovingly calls “Uncle Scrooge.” Webby is an affectionate, expressive, and adorable little duckling. Her love for animals has helped her tame dinosaurs and even snow monsters. She is never seen without her Quacky Patch doll.

Monica Rambeau in WandaVision

Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) is a character in the hit Marvel Disney+ series, WandaVision. We first met Monica as a child in Captain Marvel as the daughter of former pilot Maria Rambeau and goddaughter of Carol Danvers. As an adult, she joined S.W.O.R.D., an extra-governmental intelligence agency founded by her mother. In WandaVision, we discover Monica was one of many who disappeared in the snap. She reappears in the hospital, as she accompanied Maria to her cancer treatments, but sadly discovers she died during her absence. Returning to work at S.W.O.R.D, Agents Heyward and Jimmy Woo call upon Monica to investigate the missing town of Westview, New Jersey. When Monica gets too close to the radioactive forcefield surrounding the town, she gets pulled into the sitcom, where she stars as Geraldine. This is her outfit from the third episode set in the 1970s. She helps Wanda deliver her twins, but when she mentions Ultron, she blows her cover. Wanda takes a closer look at her necklace, and recognizing the pendant with S.W.O.R.D’s insignia, she uses her powers to expel Geraldine from the town. Now Monica again, she uses her experience to help Jimmy and Darcy find out more about the hex.

Jimmy Woo in WandaVision

James “Jimmy” Woo (Randall Park) is a character in the hit Marvel Disney+ series, WandaVision. He is an intrepid FBI agent who first starred in the Ant-Man and the Wasp, tasked with monitoring Scott Lang’s house arrest. He actually appeared in the comics before his screen debut in Yellow Claw #1 by Atlas Comics, the predecessor to Marvel. His latest case is the missing town of Westview, New Jersey, which he is currently investigating with Monica Rambeau and Dr. Darcy Lewis, as well as the rest of S.W.O.R.D. Rumor has it that Disney+ is eyeing Agent Woo for a series of his own.

“What? I’m invested.” Dr. Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) is a character in the hit Marvel Disney+ series, WandaVision. She first appeared in Thor as a political science major. Upon landing an astrophysics internship with Jane Foster, she meets Thor and helps him back to Asgard. Darcy also appeared in Thor: Dark World, continuing to work with Jane to investigate portals in London. Now after completing her doctorate, Darcy finally returns. Given her headway in astrophysics, an organization called S.W.O.R.D. calls upon Darcy to investigate the missing town of Westview, NJ. She’s the one who discovers broadcast waves intertwined with the radiation, confirming the ongoing sitcom.  Agent Monica Rambeau and FBI Agent Jimmy Woo become her allies to figure out more about what is happening in Westview, and how they can save the citizens from Wanda’s hex.

kuiiil-mandalorian-character

Kuiil from The Mandalorian

“I have spoken.” Kuiil is a character in The Mandalorian, the wildly popular Star Wars TV series on Disney+. He is an Ugnaught moisture farmer and former indentured servant of the Galactic Empire. When he meets the Mandalorian, he leaves his life of solitude and assists him in protecting the Child. Despite his gruff personality, Kuiil is wise, patient, and kind. His relationship with the bounty hunder droid IG-11 plays into the overarching parenting theme. Using his advanced mechanical skills, he was able to reprogram the droid to be benevolent. Kuiil is a favorite among fans, and (spoiler) his death was a particular somber moment in the show. Nick Nolte did the voice while Misty Rosas performed wearing a latex mask controlled by animatronic puppetry. We included a similar mask if you really want to commit to the look.

Loki from the Disney+ “Loki” Exclusive Clip

Everyone loves Loki, so no wonder he’s getting his own self-titled series on Disney+. Slated for a release in May 2021, Tom Hiddleston returns as our favorite god of mischief for a six episode season. It follows what happens after he escaped with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. The new clip dropped last Thursday along with the “WandaVision,” “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “What If?” trailers respectively. In addition, Marvel revealed the logos to more upcoming shows and movies. We know how quick cosplayers are to assemble the latest designs, so consider yourself taken care of with this costume guide.

mayfeld-mandalorian-character

Mayfeld from The Mandalorian

Migs Mayfeld (Bill Burr) is a character in wildly popular Star Wars TV series on Disney+, The Mandalorian. A former Imperial sharpshooter turned mercenary, Mayfeld leads a rescue attempt from a prison transport ship. This team includes the Mandalorian himself, but they don’t exactly see eye to eye. In fact, the Mandalorian outsmarts him, which results in Mayfeld’s arrest and imprisonment. Later with the help of Cara Dune, and of course with Grogu in tow, he decides to break him out. Despite their clashing personalities, they become allies. Much like the comedian who plays the role, Mayfeld has sardonic personality and hard-edged sense of humor. While Mayfeld was mostly liked by fans, there was an outrage when he dropped The Child!

Greef Karge from The Mandalorian

Greef Karga from The Mandalorian

Greef Karga (played by Carl Weathers) is the head of the bounty hunters in the Hunters’ Guild. He hands out the assignments and ensures that the clients pay the hunters. Unless, that is, one of the hunters runs off with bounty. Then things get a little messy.

Copying Greef Karga’s look takes a little bit of work. Most Star Wars costumes aren’t easy to recreate from your typical closet and Karga’s is no different. You can get close, though. Brown leather pants and a light brown undershirt set up your base layers. Over that you’ll want to add a brown leather vest and a brown leather tunic-style coat. Over the waist of your pants you’ll want to add brown fabric for a belt pad and then a brown leather belt. Brown leather boots and black gloves finish the look while a tracking fob, bounty puck, and official license get you ready to go after your own bounties!

Cara Dune from The Mandalorian

Cara Dune from The Mandalorian

Cara Dune (played by the fantastic Gina Carano) is a former member of the Rebel Alliance. When the Empire fell the Alliance largely disbanded and Dune began wandering the galaxy on her own. She’s savvy and quick with a sharp tongue sharper knife. In short she’s everything a Mandalorian could ask for in a friend!

Cara’s costume requires a little bit of DIY and some patience, specifically when it comes to her armor. You can buy the pre-printed pieces above or, if you know your way around a 3-D printer, you can order the patterns from Etsy and print the pieces yourself. In both cases you’ll have to go through some trial and error to get the paint colors right in order to finish the appearance of the armor.

Once the armor is done, though, the rest of the costume is a bit of a breeze. A black compression shirt provides a foundation for the armor while leggings and boots make up the rest of her outfit. You can style a brunette wig to mimic her hair and apply temporary tattoos to match Cara’s. Just make sure you cover up with an arm band if you’re going near any Imperial holdouts!
