Kingpin from Hawkeye

Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, is a known antagonist in the Marvel universe. He first appeared in the live action adaptations in the Daredevil Netflix series. At the end of the Hawkeye series on Disney+, he’s revealed as the overarching villain behind the scenes of the moving company. He was secretly in cahoots with Eleanor Bishop to kill Clint Barton. Vincent D’Onofrio portrays this menacing crime lord in both stories (though voiced by Liev Schreiber in the animated movie Into the Spider-Verse). After the standoff between Maya and Kingpin, some presume he is dead — or is he?

Track Suit Mafia

Trust a bro! The Tracksuit Mafia are the antagonists in the Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye comics as well as the Disney+ show of the same name. They consist of aggressive yet amusing Russian henchmen who work under Sloan Limited, run by liaison Kazi. They answer to him as well as Maya, as she is the daughter of their former leader (but the real crime syndicate is overseen by Kingpin). Ronin had a bone to pick with the mafia, leading them to attack Kate Bishop, who wore the suit following the black market auction.

Namaari from Raya and the Last Dragon

Namaari (voiced by Gemma Chan) is the primary antagonist of the Disney animated feature film Raya and the Last Dragon.  She is the princess of Fang, one of the five lands of Kumandra, just as Raya is a princess of Heart.  Namaari is fiercely protective of her people and will do whatever it takes to help them prosper.  She wears her hair short and shorn on one side where she wears a long gold tassel earring.  If you aren’t quite ready for an undercut, a deep side part and some gel to slick back the hair on the left side of your head can help you achieve a similar look.  She also wears gold arm bands and a gold belt over a red sash, harem pants, and a beige tank top.

Boba Fett from The Mandalorian

Boba Fett from The Mandalorian

Boba Fett (played by Temuera Morrison) has seen the rise and fall of some of the greatest powers in the galaxy. And by the time of The Mandalorian both his armor and his view of the world reflects that.

While fans of the wider Star Wars universe might remember Boba’s armor from better days, it’s in fairly rough shape by the time he appears in the Disney+ series. Whether new or old, Boba Fett’s armor does not come cheap. Several Etsy sellers have options available, one of which is listed here. This particular seller has several price points available that can either include or leave out the jet pack.

Once you have the armor, you will need the pieces that go underneath it. A long sleeve black shirt in a breathable fabric is perfect on Tatooine while a white gambeson makes a great foundation for the upper body armor. The one pictured above is black but it can be ordered in white and the sleeves are attached with cording so they are easily removed, as is the additional length on the bottom. You will also need black gloves and loose black pants in addition to black boots. Boba Fett is also bald which you can either recreate with a bald cap or leave out by sticking with the helmet or putting your own spin on Boba Fett’s look.

TVA Loki

TVA Loki

Tom Hiddleston has been in the MCU almost from the beginning and Marvel fans the world over know him best as Loki. Loved by many, hated by some, he can be a divisive character. Tortured and manipulated by Thanos, maligned by most of his adoptive family, and eventually having his character essentially reset after the events of Endgame, Loki is a complex character that fans cannot wait to explore in his new Disney+ series.

The official trailer has already ignited the cosplay urge in some fans. Loki’s active Time Variance Authority (TVA) work clothes are of particular interest and with a little DIY the look is absolutely possible to pull off. Even better, many of the pieces can be used in other cosplays! And fans know that sort of glamour work is right up Loki’s alley.

You’ll want to start with a shoulder length black wig in Loki’s trademark style. For the main body of the costume you will need a brown windbreaker, brown slacks, black shoes, a black leather belt, and a white button down shirt. Loki’s only two obvious accessories are the orange TVA patch on his coat and his striped tie. You can get the patch on Etsy but the tie will take a little bit of DIY.

Start with a base tie in light brown. Use acrylic paint in gold, bronze, and dark brown to add the stripes. Be sure and add the hourglass in gold to one of the dark brown stripes as well. The acrylic will make the tie stiff but it will also stick to the fabric and the color should be more vibrant. Do a test patch on the part of the tie that goes under your collar first, however. If the colors aren’t bright enough, use white paint as a base for the stripes and then paint the colors on top of that.

With your tie done and your patch in place, you’re ready to check out time variants of your own.
