Riverdale: Comic book couture

Although Riverdale’s story and characters are far more complicated than those in the original comic books, its cartoon roots still show in everything, including the actors’ costumes. Brightly colored clothes are frequent, giving the characters’ personalities right away to the audience.

1. Archie Andrews: Varsity jacket Nothing spells “jock” better than a varsity jacket, such as the blue-and-yellow one worn by Archie Andrews (played by actor KJ Apa).

3. Veronica Lodge: Eyelet dress The eyelets, embroidery and flared skirt soften the somberness of this dress worn by Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes), who may be a socialite but not a snob.

13 Reasons Why: American Teen Realness

Compared with those in Riverdale, the 13 Reasons Why actors’ costumes are more realistic. You wouldn’t have a hard time imagining actual American high school kids in the same outfits. Since the world only takes its fashion cues from American high school kids, you could walk down any city street in the world, run into anyone and be reminded of the series. These costumes, however, are far from random. If you’re perceptive, you can see in a seemingly generic shirt clues into the character’s inner life.

6. Hannah Baker: Plaid shirt Hannah Baker’s (Katherine Langford) red-and-black plaid shirt foretells her tragic future.

H&M | Cotton Shirt – $17.99

7. Clay Jensen: T-shirt Crew-neck, with only the most minimal ornamentation – if the straightlaced Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) were a shirt, he would have been this one.

Esprit | Crewneck Slubby Ringer T-Shirt – $19.00

8. Jessica Davis: Bomber jacket Jessica Davis’ (Alisha Boe) experiences are as diverse as the patchwork print in her bomber jacket.

Macy’s | Sanctuary Laurel Canyon Bomber Jacket – $75.00
International shipping weight – 1.5 kg

9. Alex Stendall: Collared shirt It takes a certain type of guy to wear a purple shirt with a floral-printed collar – someone who wears his heart on his sleeve like Alex Standall (Miles Heizer)

Ted Baker London | Skylaar’ Short Sleeve Woven Polo – $125.00
International shipping weight – 0.5 kg

10. Tony Padilla: Leather biker jacket Tony Padilla’s (Christian Navarro) slicked-back hair and leather biker jacket bring to mind James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause. Could Tony also be rebelling against something?

All Saints | Conroy Leather Biker Jacket – $670.00
International shipping weight – 2.5 kg

The good thing about being a fan of Riverdale and 13 Reasons Why is that it doesn’t take much to cosplay. Come the Comicon, you don’t need to have a dressmaker sew you a body-hugging spandex suit like the Trekkies. The only problem, though, is that people might mistake you as not a cosplayer but some wandering high school kid.
