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.

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!
