Maria from Disjointed

Maria (played by Nicole Sullivan) starts out as just another customer at Ruth’s Alternative Caring. Before long she’s made herself at home with the staff while she avoid a, let’s say, less than ideal marriage. Over the course of the show she becomes as much a fixture at the dispensary as any of the staff and becomes a close friend to Ruth. Maria even seems to find love in the show’s final episode, despite her earlier troubles.

Cosplaying as Maria is fairly straightforward. Start with her signature blonde hair then add in a cardigan and a  colorful shirt. A pair of tight jeans and heeled sandals completes the look. Of course Maria is usually seen with a vape pen too. We can’t recommend one but if you’ve got one already, it would make a great accessory! (Just make sure they’re allowed at whatever convention you’re attending!)

Travis from Disjointed

Travis (played by Aaron Moten) is the co-owner of Ruth’s Alternative Caring. He’s the most forward-thinking of the group and for good reason: he has an MBA. And while his mom might not pay much attention to it, Travis uses it to help out the dispensary in every way he can. His business ideas really put Ruth’s on the map.

Travis has a really laid back sense of fashion. To cosplay as him you’ll want a comfortable button down that you roll at your elbows. Layer a t-shirt under that and a pair of jeans with nice shoes that are also comfortable. Print up a business plan and keep it handy, too!

Ruth Langmore from Ozark

Ruth Langmore (played by Julia Garner) is a trusted employee and confidante of Marty Byrde on the Netflix show Ozark.  Despite her young age, Ruth is a sharp and indispensable addition to Marty’s operations.  She also undergoes one of the more obvious character transformations on the show, beginning as part of an antagonistic small-time crime family who attempts to undermine Marty’s business, to a powerful part of his global operation.  Ruth’s clothing choices evolve with her character, from favoring comfortable jeans and layers in earlier seasons to a more polished professional look that favors high-waisted skirts and tucked blouses when she takes over daily operations of the Byrdes’ gambling boat enterprise.

Jenny from Disjointed

Jenny (played by Elizabeth Ho) is one of the main characters on Disjointed. She is a former medical student who struggles with aligning her appreciation for marijuana with her cultural heritage. She’s also one of the most responsible employees at Ruth’s Alternative Caring and keeps the rest of them grounded (even when she’s the one making the jokes!).

Jenny’s one signature item is her beany. She is almost never seen without one. Add in a ribbed striped top and skinny jeans with sneakers to complete her look. Of course she also always has her journal close at hand!

Will Simpson from Jessica Jones

Will Simpson (played by Wil Traval) is an antagonist-turned-protagonist over the first two seasons of Jessica Jones. In the show he is a cop with the NYPD who is first brainwashed by Kilgrave and then recruited by a secret government project to test pills that cause supersoldier-like abilities with a nasty set of side effects.

This storyline is adapted from the Marvel Comics character Frank Simpson also known as Nuke. He is depicted as a foil to Captain America to such a degree that the two go up against each other more than once. The second time is in Captain America #14 (2013) when Cap defeats Nuke while uttering the poignant truth, “Patriotism taken too far is fanaticism”.

Portraying this contrast in the Netflix show is a little harder than it is with the comics since Cap never makes an appearance in any Netflix run. The show runners did manage it, however, though some clever costuming. In fact Will Simpson’s most memorable costume is almost identical to that worn by Steve Rogers while on the run in Captain America: Civil War. The big difference comes down to the behaviors they display and the pills Simpson takes.

Aside from the pills the cosplay for Simpson is very easy. A dark grey baseball cap, light grey shirt, and basic jeans all pair well with aviator sunglasses, a brown leather jacket, a brown leather belt, and brown leather shoes. If you do choose to take something along that resembles Simpson’s supersoldier pills, please do not use real medication. Mike and Ikes candy look close enough and come in all the same colors (plus a few extra you get to eat whenever you want!)
