Tiny Tina from Tiny Tina’s Wonderland

Tiny Tina (voiced by Ashley Burch) is an NPC from the Broderlands game franchise who’s received her own game in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.  Tiny Tina is a teenage explosives expert with an eccentric look to match.  To recreate her costume, you’ll need a little patience and plenty of layering.  Starting with your main outfit, you’ll want to put a brown tank top and skirt over your pink counterparts.  Don’t be afraid to distress the brown skirt a little to get closer to her look.  She also wears a pair of asymmetrical brown knickers and mismatched shoes.  To match the look of her lower body, wear a baggy white sock on one foot and put two pink legwarmers on the other side to make it appear thicker.  Tiny Tina also wears an arm sleeve on her right side and an orange bandana around her neck, as well as plenty of sloppily placed bandages.  Top the look off with a pink wizard hat and bunny ears.  Though they won’t completely match the creepy rabbit head she wears in the game, you can cut slits into the hat for the ears so they stand to their fullest height.

Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2

Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2

Handsome Jack (voiced by Dameon Clarke) is one of the antagonists in Gearbox Software’s hit franchise BorderlandsHe is charasmatic, engaging, and thoroughly evil. Of course everyone loves a good villain and Handsome Jack is no exception. Of course it helps that he is modeled after two other fan favorite characters: Jack Harkness from Doctor Who and Mal from Firefly. Neither man would get along with Handsome Jack, unless of course we’re talking about their style.

There are two keys to getting Handsome Jack’s look: His mask and his layers.

You can buy a premade mask on Etsy. Or, if you want something more pliable, you can use face paint to recreate the look of his mask.

His layers are a little bit easier. Start with a long-sleeve yellow shirt and add a long white collared overshirt on top. Then put on a brown leather vest and finally a short blue coat. Once all that is in place you can finish off the clothes with black jeans and a brown belt with a large buckle, brown sneakers, and a large digital watch. The finishing touch, a brown wig, will have you set to hatch your own schemes in no time.

Sniper from Team Fortress 2

TF2 Sniper

In Team Fortress 2, Sniper (voiced by John Patrick Lowrie) shows as much mercy to his far-off targets as the Australian Outback gave him in his harsh early years. Don’t mess with the Sniper, especially when you see him armed with a jar filled with yellow fluid. Sniper’s nemesis is the back-stabbing Spy.

Loners from S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Loners from S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Loners are the post-fallout survivors that don’t ascribe to any faction in the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Set an an alternate history and taking place in the area around Chernobyl, each letter in the title stands for one faction of the society in The Zone. And of course Loners, well, work alone.

Loners have many different looks but they all follow a generally militaristic look. This means that most of the pieces for their costume are Army surplus. A tan tactical vest, tan tactical jacket, tan balaclava, camo pants, and tan combat boots make up the body of the costume. Many Loners also wear goggles and fingerless gloves. Accessories can include a gas mask and fake weapon, though be sure to check the costume weapon guidelines at any event you plan on attending!

Octane from Apex Legends

Octane from Apex Legends

Octane of Apex legends is “The Adrenaline Junkie.” He is the child of the CEOs of Silva Pharmaceuticals. Having his life already laid out for him due to being the heir to endless riches, Octavio Silva dedicated his time to committing life dangering stunts for fame and glory. After a freak accident causing him to lose both legs, he is now semi bionic and in pursuit of becoming an Apex champion. This costume is all about layering. It would be great for Fall cosplay events or Halloween. I recommend trying to mimic the paneling in the green swim trunks by keeping a piece of cardboard in the leg hole while you cut out the fabric with an x-acto knife. Do not make strips too thin or you will risk having a tear.
