Troy and Abed in the Morning

In the comedy series Community, best friends Troy Barnes (Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino) and Abed Nadir (Daniel Pudi) host a talk show called “Troy and Abed in the Morning!” Usually filmed inside Group Study Room F, the show is in a typical morning talk show format. But of course Troy and Abed are poking fun at the genre. Their bromance is clear through their cheery sarcasm in this recurring segment adored by the fans of Community,

“Thanksgiving Pants” Joey Tribbiani from Friends

“All right, where’s that turkey?” To the protests of his friends, Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) eagerly tears into the Thanksgiving turkey dinner, clad in a pair of Phoebe’s maternity pants and a classically comfortable T-shirt. Hilarity ensues as the credits roll. Whether or not he’s planning for a Thanksgiving food coma, Joey Tribbiani dresses comfortably in loose-fitting shirts and pants typical of the 1990s silhouette.

To recreate Joey’s iconic Thanksgiving pants, we’ve paired an obnoxiously colorful pair of Aladdin pants with a black shirt extender garment. It’s far more confining than real maternity pants, but at least the fake turkey is mostly filled with air!

Monica Geller from Friends

Monica Geller from Friends

Monica Geller (Courteney Cox) is Rachel Greene‘s worldly, grounded roommate who takes the runaway bride in at the start of the Friends series. Monica’s presence on the show pushed boundaries on television, encouraging viewers to think about sensitive subjects such as obesity and what constitutes promiscuity in her day and age. Monica’s sense of style centers around comfortable blue jeans, and basic-colored camisoles, T-shirts, or blouses — to me, it is highly evocative of the nineties.

Friends, among other things, shows the evolution of Rachel Karen Greene from a runaway bride with unrealistic expectations of the world to a thriving businesswoman with questionable decision-making skills — at least, in terms of her personal life. (Joey? Really?) Career-wise, the character of Rachel served as a breakout role for actress Jennifer Aniston.

Rachel’s fashion sense can be summed up in plaid, pleated miniskirts, comfy sweaters, and dresses with Mandarin collars. All the more iconic is the hairstyle she sported at various lengths throughout Friends’ ten-season run.

cool cats community characters

Cool Cats from Community

In “Celebrity Pharmacology,” the thirteenth episode in season two of Community, the group must perform an anti-drug skit at a middle school. Annie writes the script and assigns the roles of the “Cool Cats” to Jeff (Joel McHale) and Britta (Gillian Jacobs). They’re laid-back, detached, and of course, cool. You can either be Jeff or Britta, and grab a friend or partner to complete the pair. This is a simple, yet original couple cosplay that any fan of the show will recognize.

Chandler Bing from Friends

Chandler Bing from Friends

Few shows are as iconic of the late ’90s and early 2000s than Friends. And while everyone has their favorites, pretty much everyone agrees that Chandler Bing (played by Matthew Perry) was the funniest member of the group. He always had a joke or sarcastic comment ready. Whether or not it was the right thing to say, well, that varied from comment to comment.

Dressing like Chandler is very easy. Classic jeans and brown boots paired with a bowling shirt under an unbuttoned black vest. Both the bowling shirt and the vest can be used to mimic several of Chandler’s outfits and the other pieces are versatile as well which makes this a great cosplay for people who want their pieces to transition from one costume to another.

Andy Bernard (played by Ed Helms) is a Dunder Mifflin employee from The Office who transfers from Stamford to Scranton with Jim when the branches are merged together.  Andy often refers to his time at Cornell University, and especially his involvement with a college a cappella group.  Andy has anger management issues which he takes classes for, and he is also romantically involved with both Angela and Erin at different times.  Andy often wears pastel colors, sweater vests, and bow ties.

Kevin Malone the Office

Kevin Malone from the Office

“It’s not Ashton Kutcher! It’s Kevin Malone.” Here is an easy to follow costume guide for Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner) from The Office. In true Kevin spirit, we won’t say lot word when few word do trick. His outfits are usually gray or brown suits, always with a brown patterned tie. Trim the front bangs off this monk wig to achieve Kevin’s hairstyle. Be sure not to drop the pot — no one likes a chili stained carpet.

Young Michael Scott Shaking Hands from The Office

In The Office episode “The Carpet”, Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) reflects on being a friendly boss with his staff, and then reminisces about his old boss Ed Truck who was no-nonsense and no fun. The camera flashes to an old Dunder Mifflin staff newsletter photo where a young Michael Scott — mullet, fanny pack, and all — is shaking hands with Ed after receiving top sales honors.

Three Hole Punch Jim Halpert from The Office

Three-Hole-Punch Jim Halpert

In season 2 of The Office, Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) dresses up for the Halloween office party as three hole punch version of himself, as opposed to his usual plain white self. Cut the holes out of black felt, and when one falls off, you can easily convert to two hole punch Jim. His watch is the Victorinox Swiss Army Men’s Infantry #24656, but any watch with a white face and brown strap will do.
