Kingpin from Hawkeye

Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, is a known antagonist in the Marvel universe. He first appeared in the live action adaptations in the Daredevil Netflix series. At the end of the Hawkeye series on Disney+, he’s revealed as the overarching villain behind the scenes of the moving company. He was secretly in cahoots with Eleanor Bishop to kill Clint Barton. Vincent D’Onofrio portrays this menacing crime lord in both stories (though voiced by Liev Schreiber in the animated movie Into the Spider-Verse). After the standoff between Maya and Kingpin, some presume he is dead — or is he?

Track Suit Mafia

Trust a bro! The Tracksuit Mafia are the antagonists in the Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye comics as well as the Disney+ show of the same name. They consist of aggressive yet amusing Russian henchmen who work under Sloan Limited, run by liaison Kazi. They answer to him as well as Maya, as she is the daughter of their former leader (but the real crime syndicate is overseen by Kingpin). Ronin had a bone to pick with the mafia, leading them to attack Kate Bishop, who wore the suit following the black market auction.

Risty Wilde from X-Men: Evolution

Risty Wilde from X-Men: Evolution

Risty Wilde (voiced by Nicole Oliver) drove fans wild when she first showed up in X-Men: Evolution. With her British accent and punk hair, fans were sure Risty would eventually become Psylocke or was at least fashioned after her. They were shocked to find out she was actually Mystique trying to stay close to Rogue using a fake identity the way only Mystique can.

Unlike Mystique’s usual blue appearance, Risty’s look will rely less on body paint and more in hairstyle. A black bob with purple streaks clipped in, to be specific. For her usual outfit, all you need is a beige long sleeve shirt, dark red pants, and blank ankle booties. They’re pieces that can fit into your usual wardrobe or easily transition to other cosplays, making this not only a great cosplay by itself but also a great option for people traveling to a convention or with limited space to store their cosplays

Wasp

Wasp is a character in the Marvel universe. Her real name is Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne. She has a strained relationship with her father, but when Scott Lang enters the picture, she must help them both. Hope is resourceful about the quantum realm as well as skilled in fighting techniques. These traits allow her to embody Wasp, and she teams up with Scott as Ant-Man in the second film. In addition to shrinking and growing, her abilities include flight and energy blasters. Evangeline Lily portrays this role in both installments.

Alligator Loki

Alligator Loki is among the many Loki variants in the Disney+ show Loki. Our version of Loki meets them with his other variants, such as Boastful Loki, Kid Loki, and Classic Loki. When they’re under attack, they bites off President Loki’s hand. Many fans have dubbed him “Croki” — though that insinuates he’s a crocodile.

Ant-Man

Ant-Man, aka Scott Lang, is a character in the Marvel universe. Scott Lang starts out as a convict, but he ends up becoming a superhero who must save the world. With the mentoring and technology of Hank Pym, he becomes the new Ant-Man. His abilities include shrinking and growing, as well as communication with ants. Beloved and never-aging actor Paul Rudd portrays this role, bringing a lighthearted sense of humor.

The Watcher

The Watcher (voiced by Jeffrey Wright) is a recurring character in the Marvel show, What If…? on Disney+. He starts each episode by explaining the many realities of the multiverse and introducing himself as the Watcher. He possesses abilities such as energy-manipulation and clairvoyance. But he never shares his origin, as he exists outside space and time, watching the events of different universes unfold. The Watcher never interferes, but when Ultron-Vision finds his observatory haven and threatens all realities, he must break this rule.

Brock Rumlow from Captain America The Winter Soldier

Brock Rumlow from Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Brock Rumlow (played by Frank Grillo) is one of the most notorious double agents inside of SHIELD. Far from the loyalty he claims to have for Fury’s organization, Rumlow is an agent of HYDRA, a member of the team that handles the Winter Soldier, and one of the men that tries to take down Captain America. It’s no wonder he ultimately becomes the villain Crossbones.

Before he becomes Crossbones, Rumlow favors black tactical gear for his uniform. A black t-shirt, a set of cross-chest straps, black tactical pants, black combat boots, black fingerless gloves, a tactical belt, a thigh holster, and a costume pistol are all you need for his costume. Most of the pieces also transfer easily to other costumes, making this a great option for a multi-day convention. Though if you do plan on wearing it to a convention, make sure you check their policies on prop weapons.

As a valet, Katy wears a white button-down and red vest with a black tie.  When she reaches the mystical village of Ta Lo, she receives a weapon and dress made of dragon scales.
