Creating your own Diego Hargreeves Costume from the hit Umbrella Academy show will be pretty simple and a great option for a group cosplay!

The Character:

One of the most endearing characters of the Hargreeves family, Diego leads the closest thing to a normal life outside of the academy (other than his sister Vanya). His day job is working at a boxing gym, occasionally brawling for money, but mostly being the loner janitor; his night life consists of being a vigilante and using his powers for good in a city full of crime. Born with supernatural powers, this allows him to throw knives with superhuman accuracy and change their arc in the air. Essentially, telekinetic attributes over bladed weapons. He also brings a very real element to the cast by having the deepest connection to the kid’s android nanny, Grace, referring to her as ‘Mom’ exclusively. While Luther may be known as ‘Number One,’ the character who wrangles the cast together is most commonly, albeit reluctantly, the gruff and lovable softie Diego.
