Carmelita Spats from A Series of Unfortunate Events

Carmelita Spats (played by Kitana Turnbull) is a spoiled bully at the Austere Academy in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.  Carmelita bullies the Baudelaires, including Klaus, for being orphans.  Carmelita has red hair worn in ringlets with pink bows.  Her wardrobe tends toward pink dresses with white tights and short heels.  To recreate her look, you’ll want to find a pink dress to build your costume around.  Any pink dress can work, though something that is frilly and high-collared will be best, since it will also give you a place to wear her signature brooch, which she eventually gives to Count Olaf.

Crimson Countess from The Boys

Crimson Countess (played by Laurie Holden) was a member of the superhero group Payback on the Amazon series The Boys.  Also a singer, Crimson Countess’ superpower is Explosive Fireball Generation and her catchphrase is “she’s the countess you can count on.”  To recreate the Countess’ look, you’ll want to focus on darker tones of red than you normally see in superhero costumes.  While full cosplay sets do exist, they can be very pricey, so if you’re willing to put in a little more effort, you can certainly get close to her onscreen look with a few simple pieces layered together.  A burgundy bodysuit is your base, over which you’ll want to layer a body harness, forearm sleeves, and high boots.  Top off the look with a red wig, shiny mask, and a cape.

Merida from Brave

In Brave, Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) is a sixteen year old Scottish princess. She dreams of following her own path and leading her own life, which defied age-old custom and causes a bit of chaos in the kingdom. Follow this costume guide to replicate Merida’s look, from her fiery orange locks to her green velvet gown. For Merida’s makeup, we recommend this Merida makeup tutorial.

Ariel The Little Mermaid

Ariel is a rebellious mermaid princess who has a fascination with the human world. She strikes a deal with Ursula the seawitch to transform her into a human after she falls for Prince Eric. If you’d rather walk than swim, you can always opt for the skirt instead of the mermaid tail.

Jessica Rabbit

Jessica Rabbit’s sultry style translates well into the real world. A red sequined dress paired with long purple gloves is likely to make a few jaws drop. Top the look off with red lipstick and people may even let you get away with marrying a rabbit. Then again, this isn’t Toontown.

Sorceress from Dragon’s Crown

In Dragon’s Crown, the Sorceress can mix potions, control skeletons, and even turn foes into harmless frogs. But she turns heads most for her controversial proportions, which take Lara Croft to the third power.

Joan Holloway

The original queen bee of Sterling Cooper, Joan ran the secretarial pool with vicious efficiency. Although men concentrate on her va-va-voom image, she’s smarter than she lets on and isn’t above using sex appeal to advance her career. A smart move, it seems, as she’s gotten a partnership in the firm.
