Shiloh from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Shiloh Wallace (played by Alexa Vega) is the 17, almost 18-year-old daughter of Nathan Wallace in Repo! The Genetic Opera. Her father tells her she has a rare blood condition and, for this reason, she has been shut away most of her life. But after 18 years of confinement, she is hitting her rebellious streak and wants to be set free. She’s sly enough to sneak out of the house but naive about the world as she discovers what lays beyond the gates of her home. Like most of the world, she dresses in a Goth fashion. Her cameo necklace is unique, however, in that it represents her mother who died when Shiloh was born. She wears the cameo in some form throughout all her outfits, usually as a choker.

Charlie Graham from Hereditary

Charlie Graham (played by Milly Shapiro) is the sister of Peter and the daughter of Annie in Ari Aster’s horror film Hereditary.  Charlie is a strange young girl with an affinity for preserving the heads of dead birds.  However, as the story unfolds, it becomes apparent that her penchant for the weird and macabre is related to a far more sinister destiny.  Charlie’s outfit consists primarily of a large, oversized orange sweatshirt, and you can certainly get creative with any props you include as part of your costume.

The world he lives in is a rough one, so the V in the neck of his overshirt will have to be cut a little lower. And he wears a thin blue scarf around his neck made from the torn hem of his undershirt. He also has pale skin and long hair streaked with a few different colors. He usually has Zydrate on him, but those little blue vials are awfully hard to come by.
