He-Man

He-Man is the main hero of the Masters of the Universe series, which span across comic books, an animated television series, and a feature film. He must protect his home of Etheria and the secrets of the Castle Greyskull from the wicked Skeletor. His powers include super strength and impressive fighting skills with his sword and battle axe. His famous battle cry is “For the honor of Greyskull!” as now said by She-Ra in the 2018 series. This guide includes costumes for both He-Man and his normal identity, Prince Adam (who you might recognize from the viral Youtube meme “What’s Up/What’s Going On”).

Captain Sea Hawk from She-Ra and The Princesses of Power

Captain Seahawk voiced by Jordan Fisher is a quirky character in the She-Ra universe. He tends to over-exaggerate his heroic nature but never the less has a good heart and works alongside the princess alliance. He is infatuated with princess Mermista who eventually warms up to him as well. This costume is comfortable and casual. For a little extra flair mimicking seahawk’s mustache with a brow pencil could complete the look.

Skeletor

In Masters of the Universe, Skeletor is the arch-nemesis of He-Man, as well as She-Ra on occasion, who wishes to conquer Castle Grayskull and the rest of Eternia. Even though he is a skeleton, his body is actually totally jacked. Fortunately for you and me, the muscles come with the suit.

Orko
