Prince Nuada Silverlance from Hellboy II: The Golden Army

Hellboy II: The Golden Army was the second Hellboy movie directed by Guillermo del Toro. It bears his trademark style of the darkly fantastic and nowhere is this mor clear than in the design of Prince Nuada Silverlance, the last heir of Bethmoora.

The elves seem to draw fashion inspiration from all over and Nuda is a perfect example of this. His usual costume is tight black fabric with leather armor pieces over the top. A red waist sash is nearly the only color aside from the yellowed tips of his hair. Finding wigs with his specific coloring is difficult so you will have to add the darker tips in yourself.

It is also hard to get a replica of Nuada’s blade. Most of the ones currently on the market run between $300 and $600. Cosplayers can substitute short blades like those pictured above or they can try their hand at making their own blade out of foam or plastic. Or, if they’re lucky, a 3-D printer!

Vaun

On The Strain, New York City has fallen to an ancient strain of vampires, the strigoi. Vaun (Stephen McHattie) is the leader of a band of undead hunters who were summoned by the Ancient Ones to stop the spread of the strigoi plague. Vaun resembles the other strigoi, though his distinctive feature is his Glasgow smile. With the proper prosthetics, makeup colors, and blackout contact lenses, Vaun’s look can be easily achieved.

Hellboy

Hellboy (Ron Perlman), real name Anung Un Rama, is a demon summoned to earth by Nazi occultists. Don’t let his horns, red skin, tails and cloven hooves fool you. He’s well meaning and actually has a sense of humor.

Mako Mori

In Pacific Rim, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) is an officer of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps and Raleigh Becket’s badass co-pilot. She lost her family in a Kaiju attack when she was a little girl, so she has a score to settle.
