Masha from 9 Perfect Strangers

Masha is a character from the popular Hulu show, 9 Perfect Strangers. If you haven’t already watched it, you need to do that right now! Nicole Kidman plays Masha, a woman on a mission to bring healing and transformation to these strangers.

Masha’s outfit: Beautiful and simple, you will want to find a wig to create her long, straight, blonde hair. The outfit consists of an all white linen set and long beaded necklace.

The Pogues from Outerbanks

This costume is for all the Outerbanks fans out there! Pogues or Kooks? Well, if you vote Pogues, then keep reading below for details on this outfit. Up to 5 friends can be apart of this costume to create the entire group! These kids are all about that beach life, so keep this in mind when creating your outfit. These outfits are also great to DIY from Goodwill finds!

John B’s Outfit: John B is always wearing Hawaiian shirts! The shirts are usually buttoned down a little bit, showing some skin. Pair this with a navy bandana around the neck.

Sarah Cameron’s Outfit: This gorgeous character is always wearing a bikini paired with denim shorts. She is usually borrowing John B’s clothes. Top it off with an aloha shirt and you have a costume!

Kiara’s Outfit: For Kiara, think of beachy/wavy hair, cutoff denim shorts, graphic tees, and crop tops. Kiara normally wears layered beaded / beachy necklaces and bracelets.

Pope Heyward’s Outfit: Pope is almost always wearing a backwards baseball cap, and either a T-shirt or open short sleeved button down.

JJ’s Outfit: This surfer dude is always in board shorts and shirtless. Sometimes you will catch him wearing a loose tank. Pair this outfit with a shark tooth necklace and you are ready to go! 

Cruella de Vil from Cruella

Did you see the new Disney movie, Cruella? The movie basically tells Cruella’s story, before 101 Dalmatians. Emma Stone did a great job playing her, and she makes many outfit changes throughout the movie. Below we have put together a costume that was one of the most unforgettable ones, in our opinion.

Cruella’s Outfit: Anything with fur and some black will do! For this outfit, the model found a pair of animal print pants, with a black top and fur coat. The classic Cruella look is the B & W hair. So you will definitely want to find a wig. If you are able to create some dark eyeliner and dramatic makeup, that will definitely pull everything together. Last but not least, a cute pair of black heels and black gloves and you are ready to go!

Charles and Marie-Andree (Monique) from The Serpent

The Serpent is a disturbing Netflix show, based on a true story. A conman and murderer was eventually caught and imprisoned. Charles & Monique would prey on young travelers along the “Hippy Trail” committing many crimes. If you want something that is kind of creepy, and will surprise everyone at the party, this ones is the one

Charles Outfit: Charles is always wearing vintage fashion glasses. He has straight black hair and tan skin. Charles is always wearing a button down (a couple buttons undone showing some chest) or a suit. In our Goodwill DIY for Charles outfit, the model found a vintage emerald jacket, and paired it with matching pants. 

Monique’s Outfit: Monique has a cute 70’s style. To create this costume, you will need to find a cute yellow jumpsuit! If you don’t have any luck with that, then take a look for some high waisted jeans or bell bottoms, a wide belt and multicolored blouse. Finish putting together the outfit with some gold hoop earrings or jewelry. Monique also has pretty, dark hair that was set in loose curls.
