Spamton G. Spamton from Deltarune

Spamton G. Spamton is a darkner in Deltarune.  First encountered in Cyber City as a miniboss, Spamton can also be a bonus boss like Jevil, depending on the decisions made by the player.  Spamton has a look based around that of traditional ventriloquist dummies, with slicked-back black hair, white skin, an unnerving smile, and red cheek circles.  To recreate this look, you can use a white hooded bodysuit as your base.  Use fabric glue to attach red felt circles and then draw the smile on with a fabric marker.  Then, throw on your wig, black shirt and pants, and bi-colored sunglasses overtop and you’ll be ready to terrorize Cyber World.

Shulk is the protagonist of the RPG video game Xenoblade Chronicles, and he also appears in Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. He’s an 18 year old human (or “Homs” in the lore of the game) boy who prefers brains over brawn. Fourteen years prior to the game, he lost his parents during an expedition for the Monado, a powerful sword that only few can wield. Now he resides on Colony 9 where he works as an engineer and studies the Monado. The plot follows his quest to defend his home from the Mechon, a race of mechanical beings who want war with the Homs. When they attack his colony and kill his love interest, Fiona, he becomes the new wielder of the Monado. This weapon also allows him to see into the future. Shulk’s gameplay revolves around stopping the Mechon and avenging Fiona as well as learning more about the sword. Side quests reveal more about Shulk, such as his aversions to caterpillars and vegetables.

Cornet Espoir from the Marl Kingdom Games

Cornet Espoir from the Marl Kingdom Games

Cornet (voiced by Koaru Fujino in the original games and Sarah Thomas in the English dubs) is a sweet village girl with a gift for talking to puppets and making her wishes come true. She is the main character in the first Marl Kingdom game, “Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure”. By the time of the second game Cornet is Queen of Marl, leaving the adventures to her daughter.

Long before becoming queen of Marl, Cornet’s look matched her village girl life. A plaid bow in her hair matched her plaid skirt. A white turtleneck, blue vest, brown leggings, and tan boots finished off her look. She also accessorized with a simple necklace and earrings though you can leave those off or just add any you have at home. The finishing touch is a wavy honey blonde wig with bangs. Put it all together and you’re ready to have adventures of your own.

oz from monster prom

Oz from Monster Prom

Oz is the yellow playable character in the visual novel game Monster Prom.  Oz is established as non-binary with masculine pronouns by default (though these pronouns can be changed in-game).  Oz is made entirely of fear, which accounts for his appearance as being made of dark matter.  His school clothes include a golden yellow cardigan and dark grey pants, with a gold watch.  To create Oz’s look, you can use a black body suit and add his white eyes and eyebrows with fabric pens.  If you’re feeling particularly creative, you could craft the small black creatures (who represent individual phobias) that attach to him by using black felt, a little stuffing, and the same white fabric pens.
