Sailor Jupiter from Sailor Moon

Makoto Kino (voiced by Emi Shinohara and Amanda Céline Miller) is a Sailor Guardian in the anime and manga series Sailor Moon.  Known as Sailor Jupiter when in her Sailor form, Makoto is an orphan, having lost her parents in a plane crash.  She is tomboyish and loves cooking.  Makoto has long brown hair that she wears in a ponytail.  Her school uniform consists of a khaki skirt and matching blouse.  Finding an exact match can be tough, but you can recreate the look with a similarly colored sailor sweatshirt (though you may want to pin the rabbit ears on the hood out of sight).  When fighting evil by moonlight with Sailor Moon and the rest of the Guardians, Sailor Jupiter’s costume is dark green with matching boots.  In both her civilian and Sailor forms, she wears pink rosebud earrings and a green hair tie in her hair.

City Girl’s Celestial Angel

City Girl’s fourth album, Celestial Angel, includes beautiful cover art reminiscent of 90s anime.  The city scene takes on an ethereal appearance with the cover character, likely the titular Celestial Angel, hovering off a set of stairs, an otherworldly glow enveloping her as she ascends.  The Angel’s appearance includes a blue skirt and puffy-sleeved blouse as well as blue chin-length hair.

Dudley Dursley from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Dudley Dursley from The Sorcerer’s Stone

In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, while the Dursleys intended to send their nephew Harry Potter to the local state school, they enrolled their own son Dudley (Harry Melling) in the fancier Smeltings Academy. Dudley proudly models the Smeltings uniform, which consists of a maroon tailcoat, orange knickerbockers, a straw boater hat, brown socks pulled up to the knees, and a knobby wooden cane called a Smelting stick, which was mainly used to hit other people.

Academy D.Va

Academy D.Va from Overwatch

Announced in 2019, the Academy skin for D.Va (voiced by Carlet Chung in the English version) was a new spin on the character’s look. Prior to that most of D.Va’s looks were spins on her usual pilot’s jumpsuit.

The skin puts her into a college uniform complete with headphones, blazer, plaid skirt, blue socks, and white sneakers with pink laces. Getting the exact jacket is a little tricky, though, since there are so many small details. Soft touch fabric paint lets you add in the details without creating stiff areas on your coat. Start with a white base to make the colors pop, then edge the lapels and hem in yellow while add pocket lines with pink. Black pig tails, pink headphones, a white undershirt and pink tie finish off the look.

Nico Yazawa from Love Live!

Nico Yazawa (voiced by Sora Tokui and Erica Mendez) is one of the nine main characters of the anime series Love Live!  Nico is upbeat and cheerful, though this aspect of her personality does not detract from the fact that she is also often abrasive and self-centered.  Nico loves fashion and was the previous president of the Idol Research Club.  Nico’s costume consists of a blue plaid skirt, pink cardigan, and blue blazer with gold buttons.

Orla McCool from Derry Girls

Orla McCool (played by Louisa Harland) is the cousin and friend of Erin Quinn on the Netflix show Derry Girls.  Orla is a bit strange, and often misses obvious social cues.  She is not at all concerned with popularity and even brought her grandfather as her date to the prom.  While sarcastic, Orla loves her friends deeply and is quite loyal to them.  Orla also has quite the sweet tooth and can often be seen eating candy while wearing some quintessentially ’90s outfits, including loud prints and bold colors, which make some of her looks a lot of fun to sport.
