Nancy Wheeler from Stranger Things

Nancy Wheeler (played by Natalia Dyer) is the older sister of Mike in Stranger Things.  At the beginning of the series, Nancy is best friends with Barb and is dating Steve.  However, as things progress, she begins a relationship with Jonathan Byers and the two of them investigate the Hawkins lab together.  Natalia is one of the most fashionable characters on Stranger Things and can be seen wearing many iconic ’80s outfits throughout every season.

Mary Jane from Disjointed

Mary Jane (played by Missi Pyle) is the spiritual embodiment of marijuana. She appears to Pete in a time of need and gets … attached. Very attached. Clingy, even. But hey, what’s a possibly imaginary relationship with a divine being representing the plant you’ve spent your life growing to a professional like Pete?!

Mary Jane is a bit of a spin on ancient Greek gods. So the basis of her costume is a flowing green dress that attaches at the wrists as well. The attachments are covered with fake marijuana leaves which also make up her crown. A blonde wig and gold sandals finish off the look!

You will have to make her crown, unfortunately. But thankfully it’s easy to make! Start with a basic fern crown and add on fake pot leaves with a glue gun! I recommend the Chandler as it’s the one I use for all of my cosplay work.

Dank and Dabby from Disjointed

Dank and Dabby from Disjointed

It’s hard to describe Dank and Dabby. They’re unique people on their own. Together they form an entertaining duo that brings a healthy dose of adorably strange to the scene whenever they show up. Don’t let the funny fool you, though. They’re also sharp business owners, talented artists, and fiercely loyal friends.

Dank and Dabby both have distinctive styles. Dank favors stiff-brimmed hats, marijuana-themed t-shirts, dark jeans, and sneakers. Dabby’s look always includes an unusual cat t-shirt, a purple zip-front hoodie, Chuck Taylor’s, and a unique hairstyle with some of her hair up on top of her head in a top knot and the rest down around her shoulders

Ruth Whitefeather Feldman from Disjointed

Ruth Whitefeather Feldman from Disjointed

Ruth Whitefeather Feldman (Kathy Bates) is a marijuana activist and one of the core characters on the show Disjointed. She has been an activist for more than thirty years, largely fighting for the legalization of marijuana. And while she might not always be the easiest person to get along with, she really does try to help the people around her. Whether or not they really want her help!

Ruth’s look is comfortable, colorful, and casual. You’ll want to start with a long wavy wig in silver tones. A long colorful shrug and coordinating top start the outfit while cuffed jeans and slip-on shoes finish the look. Add in some chunky jewelry and a burning desire for social justice and you’re ready to heal-p people, as Ruth likes to say!

Reginald Hargreeves from The Umbrella Academy

Known as “The Monocle,” Reginald is an eccentric billionaire who adopted seven children with superhuman abilities. Dubbed the Umbrella Academy, he trained the seven to become superheroes. Due to his selfish yet mysterious motives, he was a less than stellar father figure. He can be downright abusive, such as locking Klaus in mausoleums and suppressing Vanya‘s powers. In the first episode, breaking news announces his death, and the Hargreeves siblings reunite to investigate. They meet him again in the second season when Five teleports them to the 1960s. Diego believes Reginald is involved with JFK assassination. Spoilers: Reginald is revealed as an alien (which never gets explained) and in the next timeline, starts the Sparrow Academy.

Orla McCool from Derry Girls

Orla McCool (played by Louisa Harland) is the cousin and friend of Erin Quinn on the Netflix show Derry Girls.  Orla is a bit strange, and often misses obvious social cues.  She is not at all concerned with popularity and even brought her grandfather as her date to the prom.  While sarcastic, Orla loves her friends deeply and is quite loyal to them.  Orla also has quite the sweet tooth and can often be seen eating candy while wearing some quintessentially ’90s outfits, including loud prints and bold colors, which make some of her looks a lot of fun to sport.

Nurse Mildred Ratched from Ratched

In the Netflix series Ratched, Sarah Paulson plays the impeccably dressed and increasingly evil Mildred Ratched.  Nurse Ratched was first introduced to the world as the primary antagonist of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  The Netflix series serves as a prequel to the film, charting Nurse Ratched’s origins and how she became the tyrannical battleax she is known as in pop culture.  To create Ratched’s nurse outfit, your best bet will be to find white items and dye them the appropriate shade of teal.  While this may seem intimidating, using Rit fabric dye is actually a very simple and straightforward process, and by following the directions on the bottle, you will be able to better mimic the beautiful color of Ratched’s uniform, which is difficult to find ready-made.
