Sinestro from Green Lantern

Thaal Sinestro (played by Mark Strong) is a member of the Green Lantern Corps. And when Hal Jordan joins the Corp, Sinestro becomes his mentor. Not that he’s happy about it, of course. And though he saves Hal in the end, Sinestro’s fate isn’t exactly a happy one.

The hardest part of Sinestro’s costume is his non-human appearance. You can either use black hair spray and then slick your hair back with pomade or you can use a bald cap and black body paint to recreate his hair line. In either case you’ll also want a pair of pointy ears and red body paint, as well as a fake mustache.

With that part covered you’ll want to get a bodysuit and the Green Lantern Corps ring next. Then you can finish off the look with green gloves and green boot covers.

Green Lantern (Alan Scott)

Alan Scott was the first Green Lantern in the DC Universe and Comics. Unlike other Green Lanterns, his powers don’t come from the Guardians of the Universe, but from a magical entity called the Starheart. A founding member of the Justice Society of America, Alan was instrumental in numerous wartime battles. Use the yellow paint for the lines on the boots.

Bombshell Arisia

In DC Bombshells, Arisia is a member of the Green Lantern Corps. She is modeled after the pinups of the 1940’s, as seen in this dog walker flyer. Her look is relatively simple, but the small Green Lantern details give a nod to the character history.
