the good place

Jason Mendoza from The Good Place

Lovable yet painfully unintelligent, Jason Mendoza (Manny Jacinto) is one of the supporting characters in The Good Place. Like Eleanor, he was inducted by mistake. He must pose as a silent Tibetian monk, but in reality, he’s a “pre-successful” DJ from Florida. When faced with a problem, his solution is to toss a Molotov cocktail at it. Another option for an outfit is a Jacksonville Jaguars football jersey. Bonus points if you rep Blake Bortles, aka Jason’s favorite player.

Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place

Chidi Anagonye (William Jackson Harper) is another protagonist of The Good Place. While alive, he studied and taught philosophy at universities. In spite of his academic pursuits, he struggled with making decisions, which led to his untimely death. In the Good Place, he gets paired with Eleanor as his “soulmate.” When she tells the truth about how she doesn’t belong there, he decides to teach her ethics. Be sure to carry a book by Aristotle or Kant under your arm, but don’t get too into character, or else you might get a stomach ache.

Eleanor Shellstrop The Good Place

Eleanor Shellstrop from The Good Place

Eleanor Shellstrop is the protagonist of The Good Place. In the afterlife, she goes to paradise, or “The Good Place.” Problem is, she had been a horrible person on Earth, and they have her confused with someone else. She is played by Kristen Bell. Grab a shrimp serving dish for your cocktail shrimp (bonus points if there’s a self serve machine, like in Eleanor’s dreams). This costume will have everyone saying “Holy motherforking shirtballs!”
