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.

Sylvie from Loki

Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) is a character in Loki on Disney+. She is the rogue variant that the TVA has been trying to track down. Loki is the only one who can stop her because she is a variant of himself. However, she hates being referred to as Loki, and has decided her name is Sylvie. Her magical ability is enchantment, which manifests as green orbs from her hands. Along with the accurate name, we can assume this is Enchantress, who studied as a sorcerer under Loki in the comics. Now stuck on the planet Lamentis, the two must work together to escape. While Sylvie’s outfit resembles her “original” character, her helmet has a broken horn to symbolize her uniqueness.

Marie from the Aristocats

Marie is a character in the Disney film, The Aristocats. She is the only female kitten of Duchess, and a sister to Berlioz and Toulouse. She is very feminine and makes an effort to appear ladylike. While this attitude makes her quite prissy and spoiled, she has fun playing with her brothers. A hopeless romantic and daydreamer, Marie frequently gets lost in her thoughts, sighing deeply. Pair this inspired look with a pair of white knee socks and shoes, and you’ll be ready to see Paris! For an added feline touch, draw whiskers on with black liquid liner and apply pink blush to your nose.

Victor Frankenstein from Frankenweenie

Victor Frankenstein from Frankenweenie

Voiced by Charlie Tahan, Tim Burton’s Victor brings a youthful wide-eyed spin on the classic mad scientist from Mary Shelley’s classic novel. After all it’s much easier to sympathize with a little by who wants his dog back than a madman bent on defying the laws of nature!

Victor channels a bit of the original Frankenstein’s mad scientist style with his robes and goggles. But the clothes he wears underneath are more modern. A grey button down, black pants, black belt, and black shoes make up the core of the outfit while a short black wig rounds it out. Grey face paint or dusky makeup can recreate the vibe that you’ve stepped out of a black and white movie. And of course you’ll need your very own Frankenweenie!

Elsa van Helsing from Frankenweenie

Elsa van Helsing from Frankenweenie

In Tim Burton’s universe, Winona Ryder has a way of bringing to life girls that are special mix of sweet and sharp. Elsa van Helsing is no exception. She cares deeply for the people in her life but she’s not exactly a fan of the fluff and frippery that others seem to like.

Elsa’s appearance is a great example of this. She wears her black hair up in long pigtails and opts for a high-neck shirt, a dark pinafore dress, grey tights, and black shoes. You can also use grey face paint if you want to go for the “stepped out of a black and white movie” look. You can also use dusky makeup colors to create a similar look without going for full-face coverage. And of course you’ll want a stuffed poodle to play the part of your very own Persephone

Elizabeth Swann from Pirates of the Caribbean

Elizabeth Swann from Pirates of the Caribbean

Keira Knightley is radiant in just about any role. But her time as Elizabeth Swann marked one of her best-known characters. Her performance brought an entire generation of woman into the world of pirates. And that’s before she ever became Pirate King!

Elizabeth’s style is somewhat hard to replicate because the fashions of the time were so ornate and specific. You can get close with a rococo gown, hoops to fill it out, thigh high white socks, and white slippers dyed yellow (just be sure to get the dye that works with the material). The wig listed above works as-is but you can also style it using this tutorial. Finally you’ll want your doubloon. That’s not the sort of thing you want to leave behind on your pirate adventure.

Mother Gothel from Tangled

Mother Gothel from Tangled

Mother Gothel (voiced by Donna Murphy) will do anything to get her hands on that magic flower. Including raising the princess whose hair holds that power. Okay, ‘raising’ is a bit of a stretch when Rapunzel lives her life locked in a tower. But that’s enough for Mother Gothel so long as she has access the power she needs.

Gothel’s magic might be complex but her costume is pretty straightforward. A long curly black wig and burgundy velvet gown make up the brunt of her costume. All you need after that is a black cloak, black shoes, and a brown cord belt. Finally, a basket with an ornate brush and comb set make for the perfect accessories.

Knowsmore from Wreck-It Ralph 2

KnowsMore from Wreck-It Ralph 2

Have you ever wondered what happens when you send out a search request? Well in the world of Wreck-It Ralph, a little person in the computer searches up the answer and sends it back to you. And if you use the KnowsMore browser, that little person is KnowsMore himself. Voiced by Alan Tudyk, this studious fellow is as brave as he is smart. Though it takes him some time to figure that out!

KnowsMore is a great cosplay, so long as you don’t mind a little purple body paint. And while you can also use a bald cap to cope his domed head, you can also opt for purple hair dye or a purple wig to put your own little spin on his look.

Once you’ve got your purple preference locked in, you’ll need a white shirt, a vest, a bow tie, a dark blue suit, and loafers. His cap will take a little extra work, however. You’ll have to switch out the blue tassel with a gold one and remove the 2021 pendant which is easily done with a pair of snips or pliers. Grab a pair of spectacles and you’re now ready to answer the internet’s questions. Just keep an eye out for viruses!

Princess Raya from Raya and the Last Dragon

Raya Kelly is the main character in the latest Disney+ film, Raya and the Last Dragon. Voiced by Kelly Marie Tran, whom you may recall portrayed Rose Tico in the recent Star Wars movies, Raya is a warrior princess who must find the last dragon, Sisu, to save her home from a dangerous plague. She is headstrong, mature, and adaptable, all traits that make her a capable leader of the group. However her biggest flaw is a reluctance to trust others. In addition to master martial arts, she utilizes kali sticks and her whip sword to battle enemies. Her pet is Tuk Tuk, a giant creature who resembles a hybrid of a pug, armadillo, and pill bug. Raya makes history as Disney’s first Southeast Asian princess.

Daisy Duck

Daisy Duck is a classic Disney character. She is Donald Duck’s girlfriend. She also is Minnie Mouse’s best friend, and together they share a love for fashion and style. Daisy is the more assertive and sassy of the two, which allows her to scold Donald’s temper tantrums. While she may have an explosive temper of her own, she is much better at controlling it. Like the other classic characters, Daisy appears in The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Mickey Mouse Cartoons, as well as the parks and merchandising.
