Benatar from Your Favorite Martian

Benatar (voiced by Ray William Johnson with Jesse Cale providing his singing voice) is a supporting character in the web series Your Favorite Martian.  A member of the titular band, Benatar suffers some rougher treatment from bandmates Puff Puff and Axel, but it doesn’t seem to bother him much.  To recreate Benatar’s look, you’ll need black pants and a blue suit jacket with a red tie.  He also has blonde hair that sweeps over his eyes, so you might need to take a little time to style your hair or a wig.  Lastly, if you don’t already have a keytar, they can be quite expensive, so don’t shy away from a toy or inflatable version instead of the real thing to complete the look.

Puff Puff Humbert from Your Favorite Martian

Puff Puff Humbert (voiced by Ray William Johnson) is the lead singer of the fictitious cartoon band at the heart of Your Favorite Martian.  Puff Puff’s design has undergone some changes over the years, particularly during a rebranding period for the show when it was revived in 2022.  His latest iteration includes spiky, asymmetrical hair, and black-framed glasses in an octagonal shape.  Top off your simple costume with a microphone and your favorite YFM tunes to really sell the experience.
