Skurge from Thor: Ragnarok

Skurge is a character you both love to hate and hate to love. In Thor: Ragnarok, he quickly abandons his people to serve Hela on her return to Asgard. But in the end he throws himself to battle against her, trying to right the wrongs of his previous choices. Of course it might just be Karl Urban’s portrayal that gives Skurge the humorous charm he seems to have. But you be the judge of that!

Skurge’s costume is exclusively comprised of a complex set of armor. The one listed above is from another movie but looks very similar. If you add in a bald cap, face paint to recreate his tattoos, a fake goatee, and a sword, you’re ready to defend Asgard!

Mister Fantastic

Mister Fantastic, aka Reed Richards, is the leader of the Fantastic Four. With an incredible knowledge of biology, chemistry, and physics among other many sciences, he is credited as the smartest character in the Marvel universe. In fact, he invented the very spacecraft that became exposed to the radiation which gave the team their powers. Now he has the ability to stretch his limbs into any shape. Mister Fantastic acts as a close friend and mentor to the Fantastic Four. Invisible Woman, aka Sue Storm, is his wife, which makes Human Torch, Johnny Storm, his brother-in-law.

Colossus from Deadpool

Colossus from Deadpool

Colossus (played by Stefan Kapicic) is one of two or three mutants that join Deadpool in his movies. According to the movies, the others are busy (or avoiding Wade). If you ask Deadpool, though, the studio just couldn’t afford to license more from Fox. Ouch. Either way Colossus is a somewhat reluctant ally for the merc with a mouth and one Deadpool sorely needs.

You don’t need the X-gene to copy Colossus’ look thankfully. To copy his metal-coated skin you can either use a silver bodysuit and black marker for the body then use silver and black body paint for your face and hands. Or, if you prefer the paint over the bodysuit, you can use just the paint. You’ll need a few paintbrushes to pull off the finer detail, though.

Recreating Colossus’ clothing is a little bit easier. A black zip-up bike vest and red paint copies the most detailed part of his look while black pants, a black tactical belt, and black boots finish off the look.

Crossbones from Captain America Civil War

Crossbones from Captain America: Civil War

Brock Rumlow (played by Frank Grillo) first hit the MCU as a main villain in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. By the time Civil War rolled around he was far more dangerous that the average Hydra agent. And he had a vendetta against the Avengers, Captain America in particular. Of course by then he wasn’t Rumlow anymore, not really. He was Crossbones.

Copying Crossbones’ look will require a little bit of DIY. This will mostly involve painting a black X onto the front of a chest protector and adding the skull details to a black hard mask. You will also need to add the ammunition to some should pads to recreate Crossbones’ armed-to-the-teeth look.  Under it all you should wear a black compression shirt and utility pants as well as black combat boots. A thigh holster, costume pistol, and utility belt round out the look.

Namor

Namor, also known as Namor the Sub-Mariner, is a character from the Marvel comics. His first official appearance was in Marvel Comics #1 published in 1939. As the son of a human sea captain and the princess of Atlantis, he is a mutant from a race of mermen. His abilities include super strength, flight, and aquatic abilities. He’s either portrayed as an antihero or a villain seeking revenge on land dwellers. While mostly associated with the X-Men, Namor has fought alongside the Avengers, the Defenders, and the Fantastic Four. He most recently joined the Illuminati, and has had romances with Sue Storm and Emma Frost.

Agatha Harkness from WandaVision

“It was Agatha All Along!” Finally, as many WandaVision fans expected, Agnes reveals herself to be Agatha Harkness. In the Marvel comics, she was the original witches from the Salem Witch trials, and mentors Wanda in real magic. The show seems to follow that storyline, as episode eight begins with a flashback to Agatha getting tried by her coven before wiping them out with dark magic. She breaks into Westview to try and figure out how Wanda is causing this Hex. The episode concludes with a full reveal of Agatha’s costume that was teased in the “Agatha All Along” opening, as well as the reveal of Wanda utilizing Chaos Magic, making her The Scarlet Witch. Since this outfit is pretty intricate, this guide includes some pieces for an inspired look. Layer the knit shirt over the collar and the dress, and then layer the capes for a similar feel.

Black Tom Cassidy from Deadpool 2

Black Tom Cassidy from Deadpool 2

Black Tom Cassidy (played by Jack Kesy) was rumored to be the main villain for Deadpool 2. Budget cuts downsized his role but Kesy still made a big impact on audiences with the limited screen time he had. In the wider Marvel universe Black Tom Cassidy is a sadistic and villainous man who uses his mutations of incredible strength and pyromancy to cause mayhem and instill fear.

Because Cassidy’s time on the big screen was fairly limited in Deadpool 2 he only had one outfit that cosplayers can work with. The clothing consists of a yellow jump suit, grey tank top, and back boots. This is the standard-issue uniform in the mutant prison where Deadpool meets Cassidy. To finish off the look you will also need a wig with black braids, fake tattoos, and a goatee. The final piece of this costume is a mutation suppressant collar. Unfortunately there aren’t any available on Etsy or Amazon. Making your own would be an impressive build, however!

Tommy and Billy from WandaVision

Tommy and Billy from WandaVision

Tommy (Jett Klyne) and Billy (Julian Hilliard) are the twin boys of Vision and Wanda Maximoff. They’ve grown from babies to boys in only a matter of days. And there’s no telling what’s on the horizon for these two boys when their comic origins are just as unbelievable as their MCU origins!

The boys adapted their comic costumes for their Halloween costumes in the sixth episode of WandaVision. Tommy dressed in a variation of his uncle Pietro’s costume which makes sense since he sees himself as a smaller version of his uncle. Jeans cut off at the knee, blue running pants, a blue t-shirt layered over a blue long sleeve shirt, and running pants make up the core of his outfit. Silver reflective tape creates the lightning bolt on his chest while silver hair spray rounds out his costume.

Billy’s costume is an adaptation of Wiccan’s comic costume. A blue band holds back his brown hair while a long red length of fabric doubles as a rough cloak around his shoulders. A long sleeve grey shirt and grey sweats with black shoes finishes off the look.

Wanda in WandaVision

Pietro from WandaVision

Pietro’s appearance in WandaVision was one of the biggest shocks in a show built on leaving the viewers confused. And just like everything else in the show, his appearance brought more questions than it answered. The biggest of which was why Evan Peters’ Pietro showed up at Wanda’s door and not the brother she actually lost who was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

While Quicksilver’s face might be what Marvel fans expected, his Halloween costume was at least close. Based off his original comic costume, it’s just what you’d expect a speedster to throw together on the fly. The best part is that it’s easy to put together your own too!

Denim cutoffs (made using the jeans listed above) layered over blue compression pants match the blue long sleeve shirt worn under a blue short sleeve shirt and make up the majority of the costume. The silver lightning bolt on Pietro’s chest can be copied with iron-on reflective silver tape while hair gel styles a grey wig into the wings he styled his own hair into. Finish off the look with a white belt and white running shows and you’re ready to go!

Invisible Woman from The Fantastic 4

Invisible Woman from The Fantastic Four

Sue Storm / The Invisible Woman (Jessica Alba) makes up one fourth of the Fantastic Four, a group of superheroes who acquired their diverse abilities after exposure to cosmic rays. Sue’s power is invisibility. With the help of her brilliant husband Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic, her incorrigible brother Johnny Storm / Human Torch, and their temperamental friend Ben Grimm / The Thing, they defend the world from a slew of alien invaders and also their former associate, scientist Doctor Doom.
