Charly from The Long Kiss Goodnight

In the movie The Long Kiss Goodnight, Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) is a small town school teacher who suffers from amnesia living with her boyfriend and young daughter.  After she thwarts a would-be attacker in her own home, Samantha discovers she is actually a highly-trained CIA assassin named Charlene “Charly” Baltimore.  Her transformation into her true self becomes especially evident when Charly ditches her long, red locks for a short bleach blonde bob and she begins tracking down the bad guys responsible for kidnapping her daughter.

Thelma Yvonne Dickinson from Thelma and Louise

Thelma Yvonne Dickinson played by Geena Davis is a housewife living in Arkansas. She married young and is in an abusive relationship where she does not get much if any freedom. Her best friend is Louise who is a waitress and works for a living. Thelma’s character is desperate to experience an exciting new life as she has been trapped in a life she never really wanted. She, however, tends to overcompensate with drinking. Within the nightfall of their weekend getaway, Thelma has a traumatic incident that only Louise could save her from. The two go from a pleasant vacation to a drastic measure runaway to escape the US and find safety in Mexico. Thelma’s style is a little more glamourous than Louise. Use blue eyeshadow and a substantial amount of any rose-colored blush. This is a warm-weather outfit but you could add a leather, suede, or jean jacket if you live in a colder climate. What completes this look is having a partner! There is no Thelma without Louise and vice versa.

For her monster form, remember to get a long brown curly wig and attach it to the mask, since for some reason it is made bald.
