Tawny Madison / Gwen DeMarco from Galaxy Quest

Played to perfection by Sigourney Weaver, Gwen DeMarco is the perfect “Galaxy Quest” parody to every communications officer in Star Trek. Woefully under-appreciated despite a talent for alien languages, communications officers are usually accused of just “repeating the computer”. And DeMarco is sick of it!

You might not be headed for a starship, but you can still get DeMarco’s look. Start with a blonde wig, a red tank top, and grey boots. Snag a grey flight suit and some red paint for the details of a Galaxy quest suit. Add on a Galaxy Quest patch, grab your communicator, and you’re ready to go.

Ripley

In the Alien series, Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is a warrant officer aboard the spaceship Nostromo. When the crew wakes from stasis to find an unknown creature has infiltrated the ship, Ripley steps up to play the unlikely hero.
