Leah from Shimmer and Shine

Leah (voiced by Alina Foley) is a genie and one of the main characters of the Nick, Jr. show Shimmer and Shine.  Leah has long blonde hair, and is shown to be a caring and honest person, dedicated to helping her friends any way she can.  Leah’s genie outfit is light pink with gold shoes, while her normal outfit consists of gold sneakers, a blue skirt, and a pink shirt with stars on it.

The Genie from Aladdin

You ain’t never had a friend like him! The Genie is a supporting character in the Disney animated movie, Aladdin. Voiced by the legendary Robin Williams, the Genie resides in a lamp in the Cave of Wonders. When Jafar sends Aladdin to retrieve the lamp, he rubs it himself and meets the Genie, who grants him three wishes. The Genie helps him win the affections of Princess Jasmine by giving him the alter ego of Prince Ali. Benevolent and sentimental, the Genie is known for shapeshifting and comedic impressions. He comes to care about Aladdin, and they develop a genuine friendship. At the end of the movie, Aladdin uses his last wish to set the Genie free.

Princess Jasmine in Red

While Princess Jasmine’s (Linda Larkin) classic outfit is teal blue in color, she briefly wears red after Jafar (Jonathon Freeman) takes control of the Genie (Robin Williams) and all of Agrabah. She uses her feminine wiles to distract Jafar and give Aladdin (Scott Weinger) time to trick Jafar into wishing he was a genie. In this case, the costume matches her fiery, independent personality.

Mr. Meeseeks

In Rick and Morty, Mr. Meeseeks are creatures who live to serve, but not for too long. Their optimistic, cheery personalities eventually turn sour and even violent the longer they live without fulfilling their purpose. For this costume, you can show off your paper mache skills while crafting the head. A basic tutorial can be found here.
