Asta (voiced by Gakuto Kajiwara and Dallas Reid) is one of the main protagonists of the Black Clover anime series.  Asta is an orphan raised by Orsi Orfai alongside his foster brother Yuno.  While Yuno excels in the magic arts, Asta exhibits no talent for magic despite a strong desire to become the Magic Emperor.  To make up for his lack of skill, Asta trains his body relentlessly, resulting in a very muscular physique for his size.  Asta’s costume consists of blue knickers, a white tunic, and a blue cropped jacket, as well as a headband and, later, a matching cloak.

He stops by to give Loonette postcards from her Auntie Macassar or Uncle Chester.

Lion from Steven Universe

Lion is a recurring character in the Cartoon Network show, Steven Universe, whom once belonged to Rose Quartz. When Lion died, Rose was able to resurrect him through her healing powers, resulting in his pink fur and magical abilities. Such magical abilities include a pocket dimension, portal creation, and a loud, powerful roar. Eventually Steven finds Lion and befriends him too, making him an ally of the Crystal Gems. Use the pale pink face paint all over your face, and then burgundy face paint to draw the heart shaped nose. While we couldn’t find a pink lion’s mane, it only requires a bit of DIY. For the mane, get some hot glue and adhere the craft fur around the circumference of the cat ear headband. Attach a tuft of that fur to the end of the cat tail and you’re all set!

Dr. Amino frm Ben 10

Dr. Animo from Ben 10

Dr. Animo is a mad scientist. And you can take that just about any way you want. He’s angry. He’s reckless with his science. And, well, his conversations with his stuffed mutant toys are a little involved. Voice by Dwight Schultz, Dr. Animo is no fan of Ben or his family. And he will stop at nothing to mutate the whole world until it fits his vision!

Dr. Animo has several different costumes but they all share a similar base. A dark grey tank top and brown pants that tuck into tall black boots. Two boot options are listed above, one that is more of a riding boot and the other is a pair of rain boots. Each has its uses depending on where you’re going to wear the costume and which works better for your needs.

In addition to that base you’ll need tall black gloves that you remove the fingertips from and either a silver circlet for your head or a colander that you can make antennae for using tin foil. The foil won’t create an exact match but it’ll get you close without needing a welder! He has other gear including a headset and a chest harness that you can get close to using the items listed above.

Other versions of Dr. Animo wear a long green cape over a bare chest instead of the tank top and chest harness. You’ll have to tatter the edges of the cape by hand, however.

yumi ishiyama from code lyoko

Yumi Ishiyama from Code Lyoko

Yumi Ishiyama (voiced by Mirabelle Kirkland) is one of the Lyoko Warriors from the French cartoon Code Lyoko.  Yumi is a calm and athletic person, as well as Aelita Schaeffer’s best friend.  Her relationship with Ulrich Stern wavers between platonic and romantic throughout the series.  Yumi’s typical clothing is black and straightforward.  However, to recreate her original virtual costume, you’ll need to be a little creative.  By layering red leggings with brown socks and beige sports tape, you can mimic much of her outfit.  Then, you’ll need to layer a yellow obi over your dress, and wield a pair of fans to finish the look.
