Ponyboy Curtis from The Outsiders

Ponyboy Curtis (C. Thomas Howell) is the protagonist and narrator of The Outsiders written by S.E. Hinton. He is the youngest in the Curtis family with Soda-Pop and Darry as his older brothers. Despite being fourteen years old, he sees how the members of the Greasers function. He also learns that their rival gang, the Socs, have problems just like they do. Ponyboy is the closest to Johnny Cade in age and in mentality, as they both are more compassionate and willing to help others. The two run away together, and Ponyboy bleaches his hair so no one recognizes him. Together they save children from a burning church, which resulted in Johnny’s death. As he died, he told Ponyboy to “stay gold.” Here are three looks from the movie adaptation, where Tom Howell portrays this character. From the lines near his shoulders, it looks like he cut the sleeves off a navy blue sweater. You can also use the scissors to rip up the jeans a bit. The other two outfits are more simple, consisting of different plaid shirts. Although for his end-credits look, you will need blonde hair.

Two-Bit Matthews from The Outsiders

Goofy, lighthearted Two-Bit (brought to life onscreen by Emilio Estavez) is the ray of sunshine in the lives of Ponyboy Curtis and his friends, the titular Outsiders in S.E. Hinton’s breakthrough novel. When you’re constantly marginalized by the upper-crust Socs (pronounced so-sihez) on the other side of the tracks, sometimes a little humor is just what’s needed to get through a bad situation. Two-Bit is every bit as Greaser as the rest of his friends (although one might argue that Dallas outdoes the lot of them), but he lends a whimisical touch to his “tuff” getup with a Mickey Mouse T-shirt.
