Anita “Needy” Lesnicki

Anita “Needy” Lesnicki (Amanda Seyfried) is a main character in Jennifer’s Body. She is the childhood friend of Jennifer Check, but unlike her, she is shy and insecure, hence the fitting nickname. After the rock concert, Needy searches for Jennifer, who disappeared without a trace. When Jennifer shows up at her front door covered in blood, she knows something is wrong. Research and suspicion lead Needy to the conclusion that her best friend has become a man-eating succubus.

Miles Wingrave from The Haunting of Bly Manor

Miles Wingrave (played by Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) is one of the children under the care of Dani Clayton in the Netflix horror series The Haunting of Bly Manor.  Miles and his sister Flora are orphans living under the care of their uncle, who spends as little time at their creepy country home as possible, relying instead on Dani and Mrs. Grose to care for the children in his absence.  Miles’ style includes a penchant for cozy-looking sweaters, which makes for a comfortable costume if you choose to emulate his wealthy country chic aesthetic.

Flora Wingrave from The Haunting of Bly Manor

Flora Wingrave (played by Amelie Smith) is the precious younger sister of Miles in the Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor.  Flora quickly befriends Dani Clayton when she arrives at Bly as the new governess.  She is a sweet child, though she can at times be rather off-putting and even a bit frightening.  Flora’s costumes often revolve around a sweet purple and pink palette, making for a “perfectly splendid” range of options to choose from when recreating her look.

Hannah Grose from The Haunting of Bly Manor

Hannah Grose (played by T’Nia Miller) is a pious woman and the housekeeper of Bly Manor in the Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor.  Hannah has a deep connection to the house and is very protective of Miles and Flora Wingrave, though she can also be stern with them when necessary.  Hannah can often be seen lighting candles in the chapel on the grounds.  Hannah’s style is conservative, but often punctuated by color. Look for deep reds and flattering a-line midi skirts to emulate her look.

the nurse from dead by daylight

The Nurse from Dead by Daylight

Sally Smithson became a nurse at Crotus Prenn Asylum after she was widowed as a newlywed. After decades of abuse at the hands of patients and fellow staff, she strangled them all in one night and vanished. As the ghoulish Nurse, she serves the Entity of Dead by Daylight as a killer, teleporting across the playing field using the last breaths she stole from her victims. The Nurse carries a hacksaw and wears a white dress. Her appearance is made all the more creepy by the white hood she wears over her face. You can purchase a zentai hood or use a white pillowcase for this part of her costume, as either will evoke the same terrifying effect.

Glen Lantz from Nightmare on Elm Street

Glen Lantz from Nightmare on Elm Street

Glen Lantz (played by an early-career Johnny Depp) is one of the protagonists of the classic 80s slasher fic Nightmare on Elm Street. He is the boyfriend of Nancy, the films main hero and the one who ultimately finds out how to defeat Freddy Kreuger. Although Glen supports his girlfriend and believes her when  nobody else does, he ends up falling prey to Kreuger in one of the film’s most spectacular deaths.

Glen has several looks throughout the movie but the most iconic is the outfit he’s wearing right before he falls into Freddy’s clutches for the last time. A feathered brunette wig (or your own hair and some pomade) will give you his hairstyle. His top is a jersey-style sweatshirt that has been cut to bare his midriff, which you can easily recreate with a white pullover, blue fabric paint, and blue iron on numbers. All you have to do is paint stripes around the shoulders, iron on the number 10 and cut the sweater into a crop top.

Grey sweats, Nike socks, and white 80s-style trainers finish off the look. You can accessorize with a pair of large silver headphones. And, if you want to go for a post-Freddy Glen, you can add in some fake blood as well.

Mary White from Open 24 Hours

Mary White (played by Vanessa Grasse) is a woman seeking to build a new life following a stint in prison in the horror film Open 24 Hours. Mary’s ex-boyfriend was a violent serial killer, and though her attempt to kill him did not succeed, he is safely behind bars.  When Mary takes a job working the graveyard shift at a 24-hour gas station, the line between reality and delusion blurs, resulting in a violent first night on the job.  Mary’s costume is simple:  grey Converse, skinny jeans, and a plaid shirt.  When looking to recreate her look, find a flannel with a pop of purple, red, or pink to give it a feminine flair.
