Stu from Harvey Girls Forever!

Stu (voiced by Nat Faxon) is a character on the animated Netflix series Harvey Girls Forever!  Stu is the only male member of the Fighting Bananas Cheer Squad and a friend of Audrey.  Stu’s costume consists of his cheer uniform as well as mint-framed sunglasses and dark greenish-blue hair.  You may need to get a little creative to recreate Stu’s cheer sweatshirt.  You can focus on the chevron print or take a DIY approach and spruce up a plain white track jacket with some fabric paint.  Use a banana decal or patch to try and match the Fighting Banana mascot on Stu’s original uniform.

Vi from Arcane

Vi (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) is the older sister of Jinx in the Arcane TV series.  Vi is a Zaunite vigilante who wields a pair of powerful gauntlets.  Vi’s costuming includes sturdy boots, striped trousers, and a red cropped jacket.  You can use an eyeliner pencil to add the “VI” tattoo on her left cheek.  Options exist for you to either purchase a cosplay costume set or create your own by mixing and matching different pieces, depending on your preference.  Finding a pair of replica gauntlets can get costly.  While there are also plans available for purchase if have access to a 3D printer, you can also achieve a similar (and more functional) look with a pair of metal gauntlets meant for medieval cosplay.  A little patience and rust-oleum paint can even add their distinctive blue color.

Teela from Masters of the Universe: Revelation

Teela from Masters of the Universe: Revelation

Voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar, the newest version of Teela has all the strength and courage of previous versions with a modern take on what it takes to go up against Grayskull. She also has two costumes in the show – the classic and the modern – but for this cosplay write-up we’re going with the current version of her classic costume. It requires a fair bit of DIY but can be done with fabric paint and liquid stitch for those who aren’t ready to go all-in on sewing their own.

Starting with the skirt, cut the one listed above into the right shape, leaving enough room to fold the edges in for a hem, then seal them using Liquid Stitch. Next edge the skirt in gold ribbon, gluing it in place with Liquid Stitch. The best method is to fold the ribbon in half and glue one half inside the skirt so the hem is smooth ribbon. Finally, cut out the golden decoration for the front of her skirt using the satin. Use fabric paint to recreate the design, then glue it in place using Liquid Stitch.

Next take the shirt and edge the arms with ribbon the same as the skirt was edged. Using the gold paint pens, recreate the designs on her top. You can then add the designs to the corset using either the pain pens of the ribbon, whichever works best. Testing both methods on satin craps can find out which gets the look you want.

A little white faux fur trim and a pair of brown boots finishes off the main part of Teela’s. From there you’ll want to get an auburn wig and a pair of golden upper arm cuffs. Teela’s crown is hard to fine, but a blueprint is available on Etsy for those who are comfortable with EVA foam or want to give it a try. White gauntlets trimmed with gold acrylic paint mimic Teela’s gauntlets. From there all you need is a scabbard and a sword and you’re set! The sword pictured here is technically Wonder Woman’s but it’s a close fit to Teela’s style from the available options.
