Wrench from Watch Dogs 2

When it comes to Hollywood – and video games – there are two types of hackers. Straight-laced and serious … and hackers like Wrench. Voiced by Shawn Baichoo, Wrench is the fixer for his team. Fixer, engineer, hacker. He’s there when his team needs him. Usually with a smartass comment locked and loaded. Anyone who knows him, though, knows not to let the humor fool them. He’s not afraid to go down swinging if that’s what it takes.

There are three key parts to any Wrench costume. One is a punk style, detailed. Two are his tattoos which you can draw on with a temporary tattoo marker. And three, most important of all, is his mask.

Wrench’s mask is supposed to convey his emotion thanks to LED lights in the eyes of his mask. There is a mask with LED eyes available on Etsy but it’s almost $200. A more affordable version is listed above. If you find that Wrench is a costume you pull out regularly you can upgrade to a more accurate mask.

With his mask and tattoos settled, the rest of Wrench’s costume comes together pretty easily. Black jeans and black boots take care of the bottom half. A black “I am DedSec” hoodie creates the foundation for the top half. A leather vest finishes off the clothes once you add Wrench’s signature silver studs. Round it off with a studded red leather cuff and some black jelly bracelets and you’re ready to channel Wrench in all his chaotic grey hat glory.

Rasputin/Russian Man from Just Dance 2

Rasputin/Russian Man is the dancing avatar in Just Dance, most obviously for the song “Rasputin (Club Mix)” by  Boney M. and G. Mart. While it’s unknown whether the performer is Rasputin or some random guy, he wears traditional Russian garb, namely a Papacha (Russian winter cap). He dances on a frozen lake in front of a winter landscape, and what appears to be St. Basil’s Cathedral, one of the most famous buildings in Moscow, Russia. For whatever reason, this dance has become a meme, from viral Tiktoks to a remix with “WAP” by Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion.
