Evelyn Abbott from A Quiet Place

Evelyn Abbott (played by Emily Blunt) is the wife of Lee and mother to Regan, Marcus, and Beau in the movie A Quiet Place.  During the course of the film, Evelyn also gives birth to a new baby while attempting to remain silent so as not to provoke the extraterrestrial creatures who have devastated Earth.  Evelyn wears a long, flowing dress that fits comfortably over her baby belly, and a cozy sweater to stay warm.  Finding the exact dress would be difficult, so choose a maxi dress with a similar pattern or color scheme to layer with a white tank top and beige cable knit cardigan.

Lee Abbott from A Quiet Place

Lee Abbott (played by actor/director John Krasinski) is the father of Regan and Marcus, and the husband of Evelyn in A Quiet Place. A utilitarian survivalist who was an engineer before the arrival of the extraterrestrial creatures responsible for the decimation of Earth’s population, Lee’s sole purpose is trying to keep his growing family safe. Lee’s most memorable outfit includes a cozy dark red sweater, and beige pants.  Don’t forget to pair your survivalist gear with a rugged beard to match.

Loners from S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Loners from S.T.A.L.K.E.R

Loners are the post-fallout survivors that don’t ascribe to any faction in the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Set an an alternate history and taking place in the area around Chernobyl, each letter in the title stands for one faction of the society in The Zone. And of course Loners, well, work alone.

Loners have many different looks but they all follow a generally militaristic look. This means that most of the pieces for their costume are Army surplus. A tan tactical vest, tan tactical jacket, tan balaclava, camo pants, and tan combat boots make up the body of the costume. Many Loners also wear goggles and fingerless gloves. Accessories can include a gas mask and fake weapon, though be sure to check the costume weapon guidelines at any event you plan on attending!
