Avengers: Endgame is here, and it's the movie event of the year for many die-hard fans. If you want to spice up your experience, putting together a low-key cosplay can be a fun way to get involved and celebrate the movies. While there are definitely people who go all out with their cosplays, these are easy to pull together, even at the last minute!
When it comes to Tony Stark there are two basic ways you can pull off a pretty easy cosplay. You can rock a sweet suit with some shades if you want to channel corporate Tony, or a t-shirt, jeans, and an arc reactor if you're more inclined to emulate him when he's working on his next Iron Man suit.
If you're going with suited Tony you'll want a dark suit jacket and pants, paired with a white collared shirt, and the spiffiest tie you own. Add a pair of reflective shades and the ego of our favorite engineering genius and you're all set!
For low-key Tony a little bit more work might be required. Any vintage tee and jeans will start the look. Pair that with a long sleeved black or white shirt underneath, and you're almost there.
Of course, the biggest obstacle is the arc reactor. There are shirts out there that have the arc reactor printed onto the shirt, or you can use a small light taped to the inside of your shirt. Just remember to turn it off before the movie starts!
Who doesn't love a super spy with great fashion sense, and the ability to kill any man who underestimates her? Natasha's full Black Widow getup might be too difficult to put together at the last minute, but her casual look is much easier to pull off. You can either opt for putting together her incognito look from a few movies back or put together her look from the trailers of Avengers: Endgame.
For the incognito Natasha look, you'll need a military green jacket, a form-fitting black tank top or t-shirt, and some dark jeans. This is the look you might recall from her time in Captain America: Winter Soldier. The look she rocked in the Avengers: Endgame trailer is also pretty easy to recreate. You'll want a high necked black tank top and dark jeans. Red hair is always a plus.
The first Avenger, Steve Rogers, might wear a very distinctive suit when he's on duty, but the rest of the time, Cap tends to go for a very low key look. Steve's look is based around very simple pieces that work together, but if you have a brown leather jacket you'll definitely have a leg up for this cosplay.
You can roll with his look from earlier movies by pairing together a white undershirt, checkered blue and white collared shirt, leather jacket, and dark pants. You can also work with a white T-shirt, dark jacket, and jeans or khakis. The white T-shirt is the most important.
Captain Marvel a.k.a. Carol Danvers is the newest addition to the screen for Avengers, and putting together a cosplay for her doesn't have to be difficult at all. Carol's "civilian" look from Captain Marvel consists of a hat, t-shirt, jeans, and a leather jacket. The grungier and more 90s it is, the better.
The shield hat and leather jacket might be the hardest pieces of this puzzle to put together but they're still not deal breakers. Match that with a retro Nine Inch Nails T-shirt, a flannel tied around your waste, and a pair of jeans and you're good to go!
Bruce Banner is the other half of everyone's favorite green rage monster and is another easy cosplay to put together using the items you may already have hiding in the back of your closet. Bruce tends to go with a fairly understated look but by pairing certain items together you can pull this cosplay off with no problem.
If you want to recreate Bruce's look from Thor: Ragnarok all you need is a vintage white t-shirt, a dress jacket, and some dark pants. Alternatively, you can opt for an older look by pairing a purple dress shirt and dark slacks. By adding a bit of grey around your temples and some glasses, you can really bring your cosplay to the next level!
