Rebecca Black (Friday 2021 Remix)

Remember that song “Friday?” Its catchy yet obnoxious chorus about “looking forward to the weekend” was stuck in everyone’s head. From parodies to voice dubs, it became one of the most viral memes in existence. Ten years later, Rebecca Black returns with an fast paced, electro-pop remix featuring Dorian Electra, Big Freedia, and 30H!3. Its music video borrows elements from the original, but a grown up, glam-punk Rebecca is street racing as oppose to going to school. It surpassed 2 million views on Youtube and 650,000 streams on Spotify.

Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is a unique shows. In so, so many ways. And that is part of what makes it such a great cosplay option. That and, of course, the group nature of it! Grab two friends and figure out who will be Yellow Guy, Red Guy, and Duck Guy. Then sit down to a little be of a DIY and enjoy your cosplay!

All three characters require a fair amount of DIY. The nature of the DIY varies from character to character of course. But there are a couple of supplies you’ll need for most if not all of the characters. These include acrylic paint, a glue gun, and ping pong balls.

For Red Guy you will also need some red acrylic yarn and a red beanie to recreate his mask. Just cut and glue lots of red yarn lengths to the beanie and then glue painted ping pong balls on top for his eyes. It will be a little difficult to see through, which is something to take into account if wearing the costume to a convention. To finish Red Guy’s look put on a red jumpsuit and black boots. You’re all set!

Yellow Guy’s version of DIY is a little different. It’s hard to find overalls in that color blue. So your best bet is to buy white cotton overalls and then dye with Rit dye. Once they’re dry you’ll put them on over a yellow body suit and finish the look with white sneakers. Yellow and orange face paint will give you the look of Yellow Guy’s “puppet” head and a blue wig finishes off the look entirely.

Finally there is Duck Guy. You can probably find a mascot head that looks like his but those are expensive. Your best budget bet is to use the acrylic paints and paint either a small crow beak or a “plague doctor” mask to resemble Duck Guy. Wear that over a black hood with a black jumpsuit and black boots and you’re ready to go!

Arthur from Mystery Skulls

Arthur (voiced by Austin Lee Matthews) is a member of the Mystery Skulls team along with Vivi Yukino and their mascot, a kitsune disguised as a dog named Mystery.  Lewis Pepper, a former member of the team, now resides in the Mansion as a ghost, following his death at the hands of Arthur while possessed.  Arthur’s outfit consists of a white shirt with rolled sleeves, an orange vest with three pins, and yellow pants.  His left possessed arm was removed and replaced with a robotic one.  To recreate Arthur’s hair, you can trim up a yellow anime wig, and you can either grow a goatee or draw one on with a brown eyebrow pencil to complete the transformation.

Loona from Helluva Boss

In the Hazbin Hotel spinoff series, Helluva Boss, Loona (voiced by Erica Lindbeck) is the receptionist for Immediate Murder Professionals (I.M.P.), an assassination startup. Loona’s attitude is caustic and apathetic.  When her nose is not buried in her phone, she can typically be found shooting acerbic glances at her co-workers.  Loona is a hellhound, and her appearance is mostly that of an anthropomorphic black and white wolf.  To recreate her costume, you’ll want to accessorize with plenty of wolf-like details including a tail and ears, and then layer her tight shorts and crop top over that.  You can always cut the shorts and top to match the slightly tattered look of Loona’s clothes, as well as to show as much or little skin as you are comfortable with.
