Well, I’m no cosplay expert (in fact, I’m no cosplayer at all), but I have been in the Darcy Lewis fandom long enough to have seen a few float down my dash.
Some key features that I feel the above links demonstrate are important for Darcy are:
- Hats - all three cosplayers in the links are wearing hats. Two of them are the red, knitted one from TDW, presumably because that’s an easier, less specific find than the tartan one from the first Thor film in Fahrlight’s one.
- Colour matching - loki-frigasson’s cosplay matches the colours of Darcy’s TDW outfit almost exactly. And where she wasn’t able to find perfect matches (the scarf, for example) the colour is close enough to the original that we don’t notice. When you’re scouring shops and whatnot for cosplay items, try taking along a print off so that you’re not colour matching from memory.
- Glasses - Darcy doesn’t wear glasses all the time, but all the cosplays above (and others I’ve seen before) feature glasses. Black, plastic-rimmed ones work best but if you need prescription ones then you’ll have to work with what you’ve got.
- Lipstick - Kat Dennings has very full lips. If you’ve got naturally thin ones, you might look into using make-up to have them appear fuller. [seriously, don’t ask me about make-up. I know nothing. A orang-utan knows more about make-up than I do.]
As previously stated, I’m not a cosplayer so anything and everything I’ve just said to you might turn out to be a load of hogwash but I gave it a shot and I hope it helped.

I also had pork chops and chips for dinner, plus more candy. And another bowl of cereal.
An icicle/ice lolly is just a popsicle.
I was once very tempted to lick the giant 5ft actual icicle that grew on my neighbour’s house a few winters ago until my brother’s jackass friend broke it.
I say ‘heat’ what I actually mean is anything above 18˚C (65˚F-ish). I have zero ability to cope with heat. My body does not know how to deal with it. Give me freezing, give me wind chill, give me snow up to my eyeballs.
