The 100 Costume Tips & FAQs

Venture into the post-apocalyptic world of “The 100” with our FAQ section, where survival meets science fiction in this gripping television series. Based on the books by Kass Morgan, “The 100” follows a group of young survivors from a space habitat, the Ark, as they return to Earth long after a nuclear apocalypse. Here, we’ll guide you through creating costumes of your favorite characters, from Clarke Griffin’s leaderly resilience to Bellamy Blake’s rugged determination, ensuring you capture the essence of their survival spirit for your next cosplay or themed event.

For Clarke Griffin, focus on rugged, practical attire that reflects her role as a leader and survivor. A dark tank top, cargo pants, and sturdy boots form the base of her costume. Accessorize with a makeshift wristband (representing the technology used on the Ark) and a lightweight jacket or utility vest. Clarke often has her hair in a simple, practical style, and light makeup will reflect the hardships of Earth. Emphasizing her strong, compassionate nature in your portrayal will bring Clarke to life.

Bellamy Blake’s costume should exude his protective and strong-willed character. Opt for a dark, long-sleeved shirt, a leather jacket or tactical vest, and dark pants. Include fingerless gloves and a gun holster or belt with pouches to signify his readiness for any challenge. Bellamy’s distinctive curly hair and stubble are key to achieving his look, along with a confident and sometimes brooding demeanor.

To capture Octavia Blake’s transformation into a fierce warrior, choose dark, form-fitting clothing that allows for movement, such as a black sleeveless top and leather pants. A dark cloak or cape and boots enhance her warrior aesthetic. Makeup should be bold, with dark eye shadow and a warrior’s marks or scars. A sword prop can signify her role as a skilled fighter. Embodying Octavia’s intense, resilient spirit is essential.

Raven Reyes is known for her engineering genius and tough spirit. Her costume includes a mechanic’s jumpsuit or a tank top and cargo pants, often with a tool belt or gadgets. Raven’s leg brace, a critical part of her character after her injury, adds authenticity. Keep her hair pulled back in a ponytail or bun, and adopt a confident, resourceful attitude to fully embody Raven.

Including memorable quotes from “The 100” can add depth to your costume or themed event interactions. Here are some iconic lines:

“May we meet again.” – Common farewell among characters

“We’re back, bitches!” – Octavia Blake, upon landing on Earth
