Shang-Chi Xu from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi (played by Simu Liu) is the main character in the Marvel film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.  Alongside his friend Katy and his sister Xialing, Shang-Chi must stop an ancient evil from being released by his father, the leader of the Ten Rings organization.  Shang-Chi’s hero uniform consists of a red and black shirt and bo staff made of dragon scales.  To recreate the look of his bo, a wooden staff can be embellished with red tape at the ends to mimic the color of the dragon scales.  If you’d like to imitate the appearance of Shang-Chi wielding the Ten Rings, it can be difficult to find replicas to wear.  However, some generic rubber bracelets can help evoke the same feel, especially if you’re feeling crafty enough to take a little paint to them to make them look more like the weapons from the film.

Melina from Black Widow

Melina Vostokoff from Black Widow

Mother figure or Red Room mentor, it can be hard to tell where Melina Vostokoff’s loyalties lie until the very end. Played by the enchanting Rachel Weisz, it’s hard not to like her even when you’re not sure if she has Natasha’s best interests at heart. It all works out in the end, of course. Widows, after all, have to stick together.

For Melina’s look you want to start with a long brown wig that can be braided using tutorials from YouTube. A costume rifle also gives you her weapon of choice. If you want to go with her widow look, you’ll want a white Widow Suit. For her home look, a black canvas jacket, black cargo pants, black boots, and a dark blue long sleeve shirt are great options that can also transition into other cosplays. The pet pig is, of course, optional.
