Lady Noir from Miraculous Ladybug

Lady Noir is a character from the French cartoon, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. Her real identity is Marinette Dupain-Cheng, a novice fashion designer who takes on the superhero persona of Miraculous Ladybug. She has a huge crush on famous fashion model Adrien Agreste, who takes on the superhero persona of Cat Noir. When Marinette uses Adrien’s powers, she transforms into “Lady Noir,” her own iteration of Cat Noir. For the hair, it’s best to get a base wig (as featured in this guide) and style it yourself. Use an elastic to secure it into a long, single braid. For added detail, use light green paint for the accents.

Vision from WandaVision

Vision from WandaVision

Audiences last saw Vision (played by Paul Bettany) in Avengers: Infinity War where he gave his life to try and stop the mad Titan, Thanos. Though fans don’t yet know how, Vision will return in the Disney+ series WandaVision alongside his comic canon love, Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen). Despite the lack of details, fans are excited to see Bettany reprise his role as the level-headed android. And thanks to a Disney+ Super Bowl ad, there is at least some hint to how he fits into the show! Although he was only seen in bits and pieces, it’s clear that Vision will appear in several different time periods, the most obvious of which are the ’50s and the ’80s, seen here. Both looks are understated and will come down to makeup. Just remember to use black and white makeup and a white mind stone if you opt for the ’50s look!

Yuki Cross Vampire Knight

Yuki Cross from Vampire Knight

This is because the Night Class are actually vampires! She is cheerful and caring with a warm smile. This is her outfit when she is part of the Day Class. If you prefer a more accurate Artemis (her scythe), you can make one from foam and a long dowel. Other options for weapons include fake guns or nunchucks.

Beelzebub (Anna Maxwell Martin) is a supporting character in “Good Omens,” the show based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name. Beelzebub is a demon who parallels Gabriel as the representative of hell. Like Gabriel, they get upset when Adam won’t start the war to end the world.

While the character is played by a woman, and this costume guide is designed for women, Beelzebub does not use pronouns in the series.

Wanda Maximoff from WandaVision

Wanda Maximoff from WandaVision

Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen) is one of the longest-standing women in the MCU. And after suffering the loss of both Tony and Natasha in Endgame as well as her brother Pietro and her lover Vision in earlier movies, fans weren’t certain how Wanda would handle her grief. The answers, it seems, will come in the Disney+ show WandaVision. And while details are sparse, a Super Bowl ad gave fans a few teasers. Wanda and Vision appear to be reunited and living in domestic bliss that spans several decades. Wanda’s costumes change to fit the times but the two that stand out to most viewers are her ’80s “new mom” outfit and what appears to be a Halloween costume based of Scarlet Witch’s comic canon outfit, as seen above.

Panda Watchmen

In Watchmen, Panda (Jacob Ming-Trent) is a detective of the Tulsa Police Department in charge of permitting police officers to unlock their service weapons. He is a pencil pusher who is very by-the-books, which draws the ire of the other officers. To complete the look, add plenty of dirt and grime to the panda mask, and fill the binder with mind-numbing paperwork.
