Plague Knight from Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight is a 2-D side-scrolling game.  In this game, Plague Knight is a member of the Order of No Quarter.  As a member of the Order and a master alchemist, Plague Knight serves the Enchantress.  The Plague Knight’s costume is very similar to the familiar plague doctor popular at Halloween and as part of the steampunk aesthetic.  However, to create his green mak, you will need to set aside a little DIY time to either create one yourself using green fabric and an online tutorial or to paint a white mask to match the color of your gloves and belt.

Sly Cooper

Sly Cooper (voiced by Kevin Miller) is a renowned thief. Which makes sense for a young man who comes from a long line of thieves. Whether he’s traveling through time, outwitting the authorities around the globe, or sneaking into places though too secure to rob, he’s the man with a plan. And the skills to pull it off!

Since Sly is a raccoon there are a few unique components to his costume. Grey ears, a grey tail, and grey SFX paint will mimic the raccoon look. Of course you can just opt for the tail and ears while skipping the body paint if you prefer!

His clothes are fairly straightforward. A blue cap and black eye mask really tip him off as a thief. A yellow bandana around the neck mimics his collar while a blue shirt, grey pants, and blue boots finish the main part of the outfit. Yellow fabric paint is handy for painting the cuffs of some blue gloves for an extra touch. And, of course, you’ll need his hooked staff.

Casey from Kid Chameleon

Casey from Kid Chameleon

In the Sega Genesis platformer Kid Chameleon, the boss of the new virtual reality video game “Wild Side” begins abducting players and the main character, Casey, goes to beat it and rescue them. He does this by using masks to change into different characters in order to use different abilities.

Chell from Portal

In the Portal games, Chell is essentially a lab rat for Aperture Science, performing tests under the supervision of the AI bot GLaDOS. It’s not long before Chell sees her chance to escape the testing facility using her portal gun.

Faith Connors

Faith is the main character in the game Mirror’s Edge. The game is set in a futuristic dystopian society, in which a network of ‘Runners’, including Faith, are used as couriers to transmit messages while evading government surveillance. When she was young, her parents were killed while protesting government plans, forcing Faith to grow up on the street. She eventually meets Mercury, a Runner who recognizes Faith’s potential and becomes her mentor. He teaches Faith how to survive in the city, a world where obedience is brutally enforced and any deviance is relegated to the edge of society.

Mario

It’s a me, Mario! Mario is a plump, Italian plumber who’s quest is to save Princess Peach from Bowser. Along the way he’s collected several powers such as throwing fire and ice balls, flying, and becoming invincible. He’s also collected a number of fashionable outfits including a frog suit, a tanooki suit, and a penguin suit.

Lara Croft

Lara Croft is just your average run-of-the-mill English archaeologist. Dodging boulders, navigating through ancient ruins, and fighting giant stone statues is just your typical day for this video game icon. She’s been somersaulting through hazardous tombs for over a decade and she’s only getting better.
