Jim Morales from Code Lyoko

Jim Morales (voiced by David Gasman) is the physical education instructor at Kadic Academy in the cartoon series Code Lyoko.  Jimbo is boisterous and clumsy, as well as committed to his students’ success and making sure they follow the rules of the Academy.  In seasons 1-3, Jim wore a red and black button down with matching pants, but switched to a more comfortable sweater and tan track pants in season 4.  Whichever version you choose to emulate, make sure to include a whistle or stop watch to truly embody his gym teacher persona, and don’t forget his signature headband and face bandage.

Jeremy Belpois from Code Lyoko

Jeremy Belpois (voiced by Sharon Mann) is a main character in the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  A young genius, Jeremy is a student at Kadic Academy and the unofficial founder of the Lyoko Warriors, which also includes Aelita Schaeffer, Odd Della Robbia, William Dunbar, Ulrich Stern, and Yumi Ishiyama.  Jeremy favors turtleneck sweaters and cropped pants, making his costume an easy and comfortable one to recreate.

Ulrich Stern from Code Lyoko

Ulrich Stern (voiced in English by Barbara Weber-Scaff) is one of the Lyoko Warriors and a main character in the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  Ulrich is well known to be the best fighter amongst his friends, including Yumi Ishiyama, for whom he has romantic feelings.  His relationship with Yumi sometimes leads him to clash with Willian Dunbar, who also has feelings for her.  Ulrich’s standard clothing includes cargo pants and a t-shirt all in shades of brown and green.  His warrior costume can be recreated by choosing tightly-fitted compression wear in similar colors and pairing them with a pair of katana swords, which are his primary weapons.

Yumi Ishiyama from Code Lyoko

Yumi Ishiyama (voiced by Mirabelle Kirkland) is one of the Lyoko Warriors from the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  Yumi is a calm and athletic person, as well as Aelita Schaeffer’s best friend.  Her relationship with Ulrich Stern wavers between platonic and romantic throughout the series.  Yumi’s typical clothing is black and straightforward.  However, to recreate her original virtual costume, you’ll need to be a little creative.  By layering red leggings with brown socks and beige sports tape, you can mimic much of her outfit.  Then, you’ll need to layer a yellow obi over your dress, and wield a pair of fans to finish the look.

Franz Hopper from Code Lyoko

Franz Hopper from Code Lyoko

In Code Lyoko, he might go by Frank Hopper but this ingenious scientist’s real name is Waldo Franz Schaeffer. He has had three voice actors and one live-action actor across different seasons and incarnations of the show. In this write-up we’re taking a look at his most common cartoon appearance since it makes for an easy and comfortable costume. Best of all, all of the pieces can be used either for day to day wear or for many, many other cosplays and costumes!

All you need to copy Hopper’s outfit is a brown turtleneck, black slacks, brown shoes, and a lab coat. Add in a shaggy grey wig and some costume glasses and you’re good to go! A quick note on the glasses: If you don’t like the frames listed above or they don’t fit properly, you can snag a pair of reading glasses from a store and remove the lenses. They will probably run you between $10 and $20 and are a versatile piece to keep in your costume or cosplay collection.

William Dunbar from Code Lyoko

William Dunbar (voiced in English by David Gasman) is one of the main characters of the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  William has romantic feelings for fellow warrior Yumi Ishiyama, which makes it difficult for him to get along with Ulrich Stern, as they both vie for her attention.  Aside from his intense interest in Yumi, William is often aloof and laidback.  To recreate his warrior costume, you’ll want to focus on tightly-fitted clothing in black and orange.  You can use compression gear and a surfing rash guard to mimic the skintight bodysuit look.

Even if you can’t afford to take a trip to France, you can at least look like one of its most fashionable exports. Get into some mischief with a Peter Pan collared dress and a straw hat, and soon enough you’ll feel like you’re traipsing about Paris.
