Liz Sherman from Hellboy

Liz Sherman (played to acclaim by Selma Blair) is the pyrotechnic female lead in Hellboy. She largely plays the role of Hellboy’s long-time love interest but her reach extends much further than that. Her abilities make her incredibly dangerous – dangerous enough to take out demi-demon monsters with a penchant for resurrection – but she herself is a peaceful and kind-hearted person.

Liz sports two looks throughout the movie. The first is an all-black look of boots, pants, a loose-fitting sweater, a peacoat, a scarf, and a beret. Accessories for this outfit can be an Americano (no cream or sugar) and a Polaroid camera. Her other look is a set of plain red scrubs seen after she is tricked into setting fire to her asylum by Rasputin’s magic. They are both very basic looks that are still classic Liz Sherman.

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!

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.
