Closet Cosplay: Allison Argent from Teen Wolf
Messaging with @marichelAlvarez reminded me how much I miss this character. I decided her costume would make a great addition to my Closet Cosplay collection.
Closet cosplays are a great idea if you're looking for something simple and inexpensive, since you build the costume from items that you or your friends already have. Especially for cosplay beginners, a closet cosplay is a fun way to start getting into the hobby. Here's how I'd build an Allison Argent costume:

Season 1

This will probably be the easiest look to replicate. Allison's style was very consistent and simple. Reach for a pair of plain skinny jeans, a simple shirt, leather jacket, and boots. If you're looking at prints, go with something floral.
In season 1, Allison wasn't aware of her heritage as a werewolf hunter. She felt very naive and vulnerable, and her makeup choices reflected that. A light pink gloss and subtle golden brown eyeshadow with mascara and a light pink blush is all you'll need.

Season 2

In season 2, Allison went through a couple of different looks. She was struggling with her identity, and her loyalties were very divided. Because of this, her outfits were both experimental and more severe.
She also added a few more feminine accents. Tights, coordinated with a dress or skirt will work. Pick solid colors that are accented with lace instead of a print. If you'd like to experiment with her later outfits (when she's acting as a hunter) you'll want black or dark purple athletic gear.
For makeup, pick a bright shade of lipstick if you're inspired by her early to mid-season style. Keep your hair down and curled. If you're imitating her hunter look, your makeup should be very basic, and your hair should be up.

Season 3

In season 3 Allison was more mature and confident. She had formed her own identity, and had the freedom to make her own decisions. Her style was inspired by a classical look, with a modern twist. Much like her new family motto: nous protégeons ceux qui ne peuvent pas se proteger eux-memes.
A modern dress with a classic silhouette is one easy option. If you don't have one, a lacy white dress underneath a military jacket or black blazer will work as well.
For makeup, pick a classic red or pink shade.
Allison will definitely be missed. I know I'll be rewatching the earlier seasons, celebrating her victories and mourning her losses. Cosplaying her is a great way to remember what you love about the character and enjoy the ongoing season!
Season 5 of Teen Wolf continues Monday nights on MTV at 10! Will you be watching with me?
