Joe Swanson from Family Guy

Joe Swanson (voiced by Patrick Warburton) is a main character on the Fox animated series Family Guy.  Best friends with Peter, Cleveland, and Quagmire, Joe is a police officer who is in a wheelchair as a result of an injury sustained on the job.  Joe is quick to anger and his deep voice is often used to great comedic effect.  Joe’s costuming is rather simple and if you already have a wheelchair, there are only a few pieces you will need to collect, depending on whether you’d like to be Joe in uniform or relaxing at the Clam with his buddies.

Jon Benjamin) the convenience store guy manages the Quahog Mini-Mart on the Fox animated series Family Guy.  Carl is friends with both Brian and Peter, though he does not get along with Meg.  Carl is a pudgy man with dark blonde hair.  He wears a blue vest is part of his uniform and he also sports a backward trucker hat.

Mary Beth from The Book of Life

Mary Beth from The Book of Life

Sometimes a tour guide is just a tour guide. But sometimes she’s a little bit more. Sometimes she is Mary Beth, the narrator of the movie The Book of Life with an extra secret hidden up her sleeve.

Mary Beth’s costume is really straightforward, made of great foundational pieces that can be repurposed for other cosplays pretty easily. Best of all it’s comfortable enough to wear through a whole day at a convention. Just don’t go wearing it into any local museums and you should be fine.

All you need are blue heels, a blue cap, a blue blazer, a white skirt, a white shirt, and a white neckerchief. Finish it off with a long red wig and you’re ready to weave your own tale about The Book of Life.
