Nakia from Black Panther

Nakia (played by the fantastic Lupita Nyong’o) is one of Wakanda’s best spies in Black Panther. She regularly leaves Wakanda to help others and to ensure that the country she loves remains safe. When Wakandan civil war breaks out she is quick to defend her king and the beliefs they share. And though she tells Okoye she is not a general, her strength and compassion clearly rally those around her!

Nakia’s most memorable costume – the one she wears in the final battle of the Wakandan civil war – is gorgeously ornate. It’s not an easy look to recreate but you can get close with this premade dress costume. Add black leggings and boots under that for a battle-ready look. Of course Nakia joins the battle fully prepared! She carries two ring blades or chakrams. You might not have access to Shuri’s tech but embedded LED lights in the props pictures above get you close! Add to that a Dora Milaje spear and a vibranium bracelet and you’re ready for battle too!

Red Skull

Red Skull (portrayed by Hugo Weaving in the MCU) was the first recipient of the serum that eventually turned Steve Rogers into Captain America. It – for better or worse – did not have the same effect on Johann Schmidt. Instead of great strength and agility he was reduced to a blood-red near-skeleton ever in search of power he cannot hope to control.

Cosplaying as the Red Skull takes a bit of work because getting the skeleton-like look is not easy. Start with a bald cap and some red SFX paint. Red gloves will cover your hands and a little bit of standard makeup can finish the look. Then add on a long black military-style coat, bloused pants, and black boots. Finally around out the costume with a Hydra belt buckle, a World War Two pistol, and a tesseract!

Wong

Wong (Benedict Wong) is a character in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. He is a Master of the Mystic Arts as well as the new librarian who guards the ancient books in the library. He assists Stephen Strange in his studies, and helps him defeat Kaecilius and Dormamu to protect the New York Sanctum. In Infinity War, Wong stood with Doctor Strange and Iron Man when Thanos began to collect the Infinity Stones. However, when Ebony Maw captured Strange, he had to stay behind to protect the Sanctum. He got dusted in the snap, but he comes back through the portals in Endgame to help the Avengers in their all out battle.

Drunk Thor from Avengers: Endgame

In Avengers: Endgame, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is now an overweight alcoholic who leaves in seclusion in New Asgard, Norway. Depressed after the Avengers’ defeat at the hand of Thanos, who has wiped out half of civilization, he spends his days drinking beer and playing Fortnite.

Thanos

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin) is a powerful Titan warlord who seeks the Infinity Stones to complete the Infinity Gauntlet, which would give him enough power to wipe out half of the universe, including many of The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
