Grace Sampson from Jupiter’s Legacy

Grace Sampson (played by Leslie Bibb) is also known as the superhero Lady Liberty in the Netflix series Jupiter’s Legacy.  Grace is a powerful superhero in her own right, fighting alongside her husband Sheldon and son Brandon, though her daughter Chloe has chosen a life outside the realm of heroism.  Lady Liberty’s costume consists of a blue and teal bodysuit with white gloves and boots.  A high collar helps set her cape apart from many other superhero looks, and though it might not be possible to find her exact gold hardware, a bib necklace worn over the cape’s collar can help recreate the appearance of Lady Liberty’s signature winged crest.

Brandon Sampson from Jupiter’s Legacy

Brandon Sampson (played by Andrew Horton) is the son of Sheldon and Grace Sampson in the Netflix series Jupiter’s Legacy.  Unlike his sister Chloe, Brandon has not shied away from the family business.  Though as the superhero Paragon, Brandon often struggles to live up to the ideals and legacy of his super-powered parents.  Paragon’s costume is blue, white, and red.  Thought it’s tough to find a red cape with a white lining, you could always purchase two capes in the correct colors and wear them together.  If you have time and are feeling particularly crafty, some grey fabric paint can add the finer details to his suit.

Sheldon Sampson from Jupiter’s Legacy

Sheldon Sampson (played by Josh Duhamel), also known by his superhero moniker The Utopian, is a main character in the Netflix series Jupiter’s Legacy, based on the graphic novels of the same name.  At more than 100 years old, Sheldon feels out of touch with the current world, and even his own family.  Sheldon is married to Grace and they have two children, Brandon and Chloe.  The Utopian’s uniform consists of a white body suit with red cape and boots, as well as some gold details.  You can purchase a single bodysuit with these attributes, or if you’re more into building your own costume, you can assemble the pieces and put your DIY skills to good use by painting the Utopian’s chest piece with fabric paint.

Shang-Chi Xu from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi (played by Simu Liu) is the main character in the Marvel film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.  Alongside his friend Katy and his sister Xialing, Shang-Chi must stop an ancient evil from being released by his father, the leader of the Ten Rings organization.  Shang-Chi’s hero uniform consists of a red and black shirt and bo staff made of dragon scales.  To recreate the look of his bo, a wooden staff can be embellished with red tape at the ends to mimic the color of the dragon scales.  If you’d like to imitate the appearance of Shang-Chi wielding the Ten Rings, it can be difficult to find replicas to wear.  However, some generic rubber bracelets can help evoke the same feel, especially if you’re feeling crafty enough to take a little paint to them to make them look more like the weapons from the film.
