Joy Wang from Everything Everywhere All at Once

Joy Wang (played by Stephanie Hsu) is the daughter of Evelyn and Waymond in the A24 film Everything Everywhere All at Once.  Joy has a fairly strained relationship with her mother Evelyn; the two often butt heads over a variety of things, including Joy’s desire to introduce her girlfriend to her grandfather.  As originally introduced, Joy favors baggy clothes and has a penchant for comfortable flannel shirts.  Her costuming gets pretty wild, though, when she becomes Jobu Tupaki, an interdimensional villain Evelyn must stop from destroying every universe that exists.  As Jobu, Joy wears a multitude of colorful and unique ensembles.  It might not be possible to completely recreate any one of them in full, so don’t be afraid to go a little wild and interpret one of her looks to make your own.

Bex from Assassination Nation

Bex Warren (played by Hari Nef) is one of the main characters in the satire film Assassination Nation.  Bex is best friends with Lily, Em, and Sarah.  As a transgender teen, Bex faces discrimination from some of her fellow students, which turns deadly after a hacker leaks important secrets about the residents of her hometown Salem.  One of Bex’s best looks from the film is the one she wears after the town descends into violence, which includes a red leather jacket that matches her friends’.  She also dons cropped black jeans and a multicolor striped crop top.  Finding an exact match for the top might not be possible, so don’t be afraid to focus on either similar colors or vertical stripes if you can’t get both in the same piece.  Similarly, a plain red trench coat can be substituted for an exact match, which might be kinder to your costume budget.
