Nancy Callahan from Sin City

Nancy Callahan played by Jessica Alba was abducted as an 11 year old girl and miraculously saved by John Hartigan. That night John was framed for the abduction of Nancy and for years she wrote him letters in jail. Years have passed and Nancy has grown up. She is now a Stripper at Kadie’s Club. This Nancy costume is a bit of a casual rendition. You can take parts and pieces from the lingerie set. Use the bra, cuffs, and use the garter as a belt over the leggings. The bullet belt can be wrapped lower on the hips. Nancy has basic makeup on with glossy lips.

Tank Girl

Tank Girl (real name Rebecca Buck, portrayed by Lori Petty) is a tank driver in futuristic Australia who lives in her tank with her mutant kangaroo boyfriend Booga. She takes on missions for a nebulous organization but after a screw-up, is declared an outlaw.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man is the name given to the protagonists of H.G. Wells’s sci-fi novel of the same name and the classic Universal Studios horror movie franchise that spawned from it. Besides that, similar characters have appeared in numerous other media, such as the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comics and a stage play. Since there have been many people to take up the mantle, designs vary. Feel free to mix and match different articles of clothing. Personally, I like to use Solar Shields when I dress as him as opposed to Victorian sunglasses, because they look like goggles worn in more contemporary depictions, have side lenses like the 19th century sunglasses worn in the classic films, and are large enough to cover my eyeglasses.

The Crow

In The Crow, Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) and his fiancee Shelly are murdered by thugs on a crime spree. A crow brings him back to life, giving him the ability to warg and the opportunity to seek revenge on his killers.
