Julieta Madrigal (voiced by Angie Cepeda) is the daughter of Alma and Pedro and the sister to magical siblings Bruno and Pepa in the Disney animated film Encanto.  Julieta has three children herself, Isabela, Louisa, and Mirabel with husband Augustín.  Julieta can heal people with the food she makes.  Julieta’s clothes come in soft shades of teal and blue, with a blouse, skirt, and apron embroidered with a mortar and pestle as well as herbs, to symbolize her magical power.  When accessorizing your costume, don’t be afraid to take whatever fresh herbs or flowers you may have on hand and add them to your pockets.

Yzma

Yzma (voiced by Eartha Kitt) is the antagonist of the Disney animated movie, Emperor’s New Groove. She is Emperor Kuzco’s advisor who seeks the throne for herself. Although cunning and power-hungry, Yzma provides comedic relief with her eccentric antics and frustration with Kronk’s incompetence. She claims to be a sorceress, hence her knowledge of potions, but she’s depicted as a mad scientist type, as indicated from her goggles and lab coat.

scar from the lion king

Scar from The Lion King

Scar (voiced by Jeremy Irons) is the main antagonist of the classic Disney film The Lion King.  Scar is the brother of Mufasa, the ruling king, who seeks to take power from his brother and nephew in this animal twist on Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  Scar is lankier than his brother, with a dark mane and a scar over his left eye.  There are two ways you could approach this costume.  First, you could purchase a Scar mask and pair it with the lower portion of another lion costume if you’d like to go for a literal interpretation of the character.  Otherwise, don’t be afraid to get creative with a wild black wig, some scar putty, and dangerously long nails for a more interpretive take on this iconic villain.

Kronk

Kronk (voiced by Patrick Warburton) is a supporting character in the Disney animated movie, Emperor’s New Groove, and the main character in its sequel, Kronk’s New Groove. He is Yzma’s bumbling yet loveable henchman. What Kronk lacks in brains, he makes up for in brawn — and culinary skills, as indicated by his homemade spinach puffs. Despite working for Yzma, he is a genuinely kind person. While this is an easy DIY costume, we provided a ready made option as well.

Felix Madrigal from Encanto

You can use red satin ribbon to embellish down the shirt.

Emperor Kuzco

Emperor Kuzco (voiced by David Spade) is the protagonist of the animated Disney film, Emperor’s New Groove and its television spin-off, The Emperor’s New School. Kuzco is the teenage emperor of the Inca Empire, but he pays no heed to the needs of others. Spoiled and vainglorious, he cares more about luxury than leadership. After a potion from Yzma turns him into a llama rather than causing his death, Kuzco realizes the error of his ways.
