Tombstone

If you need someone assassinated in New York — and you’re in good with Kingpin — then you want Tombstone.  Anyone who remembers him as Lonnie Thompson Lincoln knows better than to call him by his real name. He’s spent his life becoming one of the most feared men in the city and it’s a reputation he’s all too happy to reinforce over and over again.

Tombstone’s look is, thankfully, easy to achieve than his reputation. Because Tombstone’s pale skin and white hair are a result of albinism, it may be offensive to recreate them with makeup. Instead you can get his look with a sharp suit, colorful shirt, dark tie and matching shoes. Then all you need is a set of sharp fake teeth to recreate the points Tombstone filed his into and you are ready to take our Kingpin’s enemies. Just watch out for those pesky heroes.

Sandman from Spider-Man 3

Thomas Haden Church is no stranger to playing the bad guy. His iconic George of the Jungle role is proof enough of that. But his turn as Flint Marko (also known as Sandman) in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3 was definitely one of the highlights of the film. It introduced a whole new generation to the character and made him a fan favorite villain for people everywhere.

Flint’s cosplay is easy to pull together and, depending on your other characters, the pieces can serve in a variety of other costumes. The most difficult part is his shirt. Finding striped shirts in the right shade is a little tricky so you will be better off making your own. Start with a medium green t-shirt and add in the stripes using either black dye or black fabric paint. After that all you need is a brown belt, brown shoes, and a pair of olive cargo pants.

Aunt May from Marvel Comics

Aunt May

Maybelle Reilly – better known as Aunt May or May Parker – is Peter Parker’s surrogate mother. Whether she knows about his superhero alterego Spider-Man or not, she worries about her boy. And she knows better than anyone the toll a good deed can take. But just like she taught Peter, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do the right thing.

Aunt May has had a lot of looks over the year (and that’s without the MCU’s fashion-forward take on Aunt May). For this write-up we’re going for something in between the classic “granny” look from the original comics and the more updated look she has today.

For this iteration of Aunt May you’ll want a short white wig, long purple cardigan, a dusky pink knee-length skirt, and a yellow undershirt. Finish off the look with purple flats and  pearl earrings and you’re set!

Jessica Drew aka Spider-Woman from Marvel

Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew)

Jessica Drew may seem like just another member of the Spider family. But she is the original Spider-Woman, the mother of Gerry Drew (the future Spider-Boy, Spider-Man, and ‘The Spider’). But she wasn’t always a hero. Far from it, Drew began her career with Hydra. She was their assassin until she saw the error of her ways and eventually defected to join SWORD, SHIELD, and the Avengers.

Jessica Drew’s Spider-Woman has had several looks over the years. Arguably one of her most iconic is this one: a red and yellow bodysuit, yellow boots, yellow gloves, and her dark hair worn long and loose. It might not be the most tactical look she’s had but it’s certainly one of the most glamorous!

morbius comics character

Morbius

Morbius the Living Vampire is a villain in the Marvel comics, specifically the antagonist of Spider-Man. Once known as Dr. Michael Morbius, he obtained vampiric abilities after a biochemical experiment went wrong. It was supposed to cure his rare blood disease, but instead it turned him into a psuedo-vampire with a craving for human blood. His other abilities include flight, hypnosis, and accelerated healing. Jared Leto is slated to play the role in his upcoming live-action movie. Sew or glue on the red ribbon to create the trim on the neckline. Use a pair of scissors to cut down the center of the bodysuit as well as to create the pointed edges of the cape.

Use the silver spray paint on the globe to make his helmet.

Max Dillon from The Amazing Spiderman II

Max Dillon from The Amazing Spider-Man II

Mild-mannered electrical engineer Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) lived an uneventful life until one day, when he was rescued by his hero, Spider-Man. That was shocking enough, but then he fell prey to a freak accident at Oscorp Industries, which turned him into pure electrical energy! He became Electro, a pawn of Harry Osborn, who mobilizes Dillon’s starvation for attention against the city.

In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the Kingpin (voiced by Liev Schreiber) is the street name of Wilson Fisk, a crime lord and arch-nemesis of Spider-Man.

For this costume, trawl your local thrift store for the absolute largest black suit and skinniest black necktie that you can find.
