Geppetto from Pinocchio (2022)

Geppetto (played by Tom Hanks) is the kindly old clockmaker who makes a puppet and wishes him to life in the Disney live-action remake of Pinocchio.  When Geppetto wishes on a star for his puppet to come to life, the Blue Fairy grants his wish, which starts Pinocchio on his quest to become a real boy.  In the live-action version of the movie, Geppetto is depicted as an old man with grey hair and a mustache who wears glasses.  His costuming includes an oversized shirt, vest, and green pants, with long wool socks and buckle shoes.

Honest John from Pinocchio (2022)

J. Worthington Foulfellow, better known as Honest John (voiced by Keegan-Michael Key), is an anthropomorphic fox and con artist in the 2022 live-action remake of Pinocchio.  Honest John is charismatic as can be, and eventually convinces Pinocchio to join Stromboli after trapping Jiminy Cricket in a jar so he can’t intervene.  Honest John’s outfit is a hodgepodge of different elements.  First, you’ll need plaid pants and a red jacket as well as a blue and gold shawl fashioned like a cape with a gold chain to hold it in place.  Though your first instinct may be to get brown plaid dress pants, a pair of pajama bottoms may better emulate the bagginess of Honest John’s movie look.  You’ll also need a fox mask, tail, and slippers to pair with your outfit.  The finishing touches include a top hat, cane, and white gloves with ruffled cuffs.
