The Deathslinger from Dead by Daylight

Caleb Quinn was an Irish-American engineer turned prisoner after he nearly killed his boss for stealing his inventions and selling them to other companies for a profit. Caleb struck a deal with the prison warden to fill the Hellshire Penitentiary, he fashioned a speargun that could capture convicts alive. His macabre device earned him the nickname the Deathslinger, and he now uses it to spear and sacrifice survivors to the Entity of Dead by Daylight. To recreate the Deathslinger’s quintessentially Western look, a simple cowboy costume will suffice. However, some additional creativity may be required to make his signature spear gun weapon by attaching a prop spear to a prop rifle with a vintage look. Liquid latex can be used to create the wound on his cheek, and also to help tear and bloody his knuckles.

Lady Dimitrescu from Resident Evil 8

Lady Dimitrescu from Resident Evil Village

Lady Alcina Dimitrescu has already taken the internet by storm. A beautiful vampire standing over nine feet tall with a killer smile, it’s easy to see why she caused a splash when she appeared in January’s Maiden. Her history is still largely unknown and will have to stay that way until Resident Evil: Village comes out this May. That hasn’t stopped fans from putting together cosplays in the Lady’s honor, our own among them!

While it is possible to use stilts to mimic the Lady’s height, it’s not recommended. Instead this cosplay focuses on Lady Dimitrescu’s style. A wide brimmed black hat, black leather gloves, black boots, and black flower pin all stand in sharp contrast to her flowing white empire waist gown. Her skin is also ghostly white which can be recreated using body paint. If you’d prefer to skip the body paint you can use a face painting kit to recreate the sharp lines and slightly undead look that gives away Lady Dimitrescu’s vampiric nature.

Finish the look with a dark brown wig. Lady Dimitrescu wears her hair pinned up in tight curls from the 1950s which you will have to recreate yourself. There are several tutorials on YouTube both on curling synthetic wigs and on recreating Dimitrescu’s look.

Be sure and put on your favorite red lipstick and you’re ready to rule a castle of your own.
