Armond from The White Lotus

Armond (played by Murray Bartlett) is the manager of the titular luxury resort on HBO’s The White Lotus Armond is five years sober at the beginning of the series, though having to deal with many of the Lotus’ high-maintenance guests, including Shane Patton and Tanya McQuoid test his resolve.  Armond wears many colorful outfits, often layering blazers over floral-printed shirts that mesh well with the exotic locale, making for a fun and customizable costume.

Red Hood from Titans

HBO Max introduced Jason Todd as Red Hood in season three of their Titans show. The look was hyped for months beforehand and not just by Curran Walters, the man under the hood. Fans everywhere were dying to see what HBO would give them and they were not disappointed.

Recreating Red Hood’s look is no easy feat. And it starts with the mask. Unless you’re an experienced crafter and cosplayer, your best bet is to get one from Etsy. They tend to sell out very quickly and you might have to purchase a 3D printer pattern and have an Etsy printer run one off for you. Then, of course, you need a red zip up hoodie and a brown leather jacket. Under that you’ll want the chest piece which is pretty easily replicated with a paintball vest and fabric paint. Because the vest is black, you’ll want to paint the bat symbol first in white and then in red so the red will show up against the background. Finally, to finish off the upper layer you’ll need a pair of motorcycle gloves.

The bottom half of the costume consists of a pair of motorcycle pants, two thigh holsters, two costume pistols, a tactical belt, and a pair of brown leather work boots. Todd also has a pair of leg bracers that go down over his boots. You can purchase the leg portion premade and then fashion the section over his toes with craft foam and silver adhesive vinyl.

It’s a costume with a pretty steep level of investment. For for Red Hood fans it is worth it.

Superboy from Titans

On the TV show Titans, Conner (played by Joshua Orpin) is a Kryptonian/human hybrid who is also known as Subject 13 and Superboy.  Superboy’s powers include solar energy absorption, much like Superman, which allows him to heal himself, as well as exhibit superhuman speed, stamina, hearing, and strength.  Superboy’s costume is very simple to recreate, and includes a black t-shirt with the red Superman insignia, blue cargo pants, and black tactical boots.

Batman from Harley Quinn

Batman from Harley Quinn

There are so many Batman variations that it can be a little hard to keep up with. But this version (voiced by Diedrich Bader) is unique in both his snark and the way he handles Harley Quinn. He’d have to be. This Harley isn’t your usual Harley. And when the lines between good guy and bad guy get blurred, things are bound to get interesting!

Batman’s costume in the show is pretty straightforward. He has a black cowl and a black cape that he wears over a grey body suit with the bat insignia on the chest. Because the insignia is a little different from most you can buy pre-made, you’re better off painting it on with black fabric paint. A yellow belt, black gloves, and black boots round out the look. You can add some bat-themed weapons and you’ll be ready to scour the streets of Gotham for evildoers!

Marcus from Raised by Wolves

Marcus (played by Travis Fimmel) is one of the main characters of the HBO Max show Raised by Wolves.  He is a follower of the Mithraic faith, and eventually becomes the leader of a group of humans who have relocated to the planet Kepler-22b in order to escape an Earth ravaged by war.  Marcus finds himself in conflict with Mother, an android who was previously sent to Kepler-22b with Father and human embryos in an effort to begin populating the new planet.  Marcus’ clothing is tactical in feel and mostly white.  If you have some skill with a paintbrush, you could paint the Mithraic sun symbol onto a white tunic.  Otherwise, a Crusader costume will help evoke the same feel.  For a little extra detail, use an FX kit to recreate the scarring on the right side of Marcus’ face.

Mother from Raised by Wolves

Mother (played by Amanda Collin) is an android sent to the planet Kepler-22b in the HBO Max show Raised by Wolves.  Mother and Father, another android, are tasked with raising human children destined to repopulate their new planet, as the Earth has been plagued by war between atheists and followers of the Mithraic faith.  Some of these followers, including Marcus, eventually make their way to Kepler-22b as well, causing conflict in the world of Mother, Father, and Campion.  While Mother’s costume is relatively simple, her hairstyle truly makes her stand out.  If you aren’t quite ready to take the plunge and give yourself a buzzcut, a men’s wig in a strawberry-blonde color can help you achieve the utilitarian appearance of this futuristic android.
