Best Cheryl Blossom Costume Guide
Cheryl Blossom may be a familiar name to fans of the Archie comics which have entertained people for decades. However, we’re talking about a much darker version here. This Cheryl Blossom appears in the 2017 TV series Riverdale, where she is played by actor Madelaine Petsch. In Riverdale, we get to see a different side of the seemingly perfect town where Archie and friends grew up.
Cheryl grew up in a wealthy family with her twin brother Jason and has always carried an air of entitlement that comes with her family’s wealth. While she mainly thinks only of herself, she loved her brother dearly until he died in a mysterious accident.

About Cheryl Blossom
Cheryl Blossom is a fictional character in the TV series Riverdale, a teen drama/mystery based on the characters from the much-loved Archie comics. In the new adaption, she is played by actor Madelaine Petsch. Cheryl is your typical high school, rich girl. She is seen as snobby, arrogant and walks around Riverdale High like she owns it. Of course, she is head cheerleader and extremely popular – and doesn’t she know it.
Cheryl is shown as being incredibly selfish and self-serving, and perhaps the only other person she cares about is her brother who was found dead under mysterious circumstances. Initially thought to be a boating accident, Cheryl later reveals she wasn’t actually boating with her brother when he died – she had helped him try to leave Riverdale by faking his death, but his actual subsequent demise remains a mystery. A mystery she is hell-bent on dealing our punishment for.
Cheryl Blossom was introduced in 1982 in Betty and Veronica #320 as a third love interest for Archie Andrews, but she and her twin brother Jason disappeared two years later.
In the 1980s, when a number of alternate universe series were published, Cheryl was a minor recurring character in the short-lived title Archie’s Explorers of the Unknown. She appeared as Blaze Blossom and would brief the Explorers on their missions.
The character was reintroduced into the main continuity and Archie Andrews’ life during the “Love Showdown” four-part series in 1994. During the series, Archie receives a letter from Cheryl which states she will be returning to Riverdale. Archie, infatuated with girls as always, decides to keep Cheryl’s return a secret from Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge. He merely acts in a typical Archie girl crush maneuver (looking dreamy, uttering nonsense). Unknown to Archie is that Betty and Veronica both think the other person did this to Archie, and they declare war on each other to win back Archie once and for all. Super Soakers, dirty dancing, and fraud are just some of the tactics that the girls use on each other. Cheryl returns to Riverdale, leaving readers wondering whom Archie will choose in the end.
Cheryl has appeared in several comic book stories over the years, including her own series. In one story, it was revealed that an ancestor of Archie once fell in love with an ancestor of Cheryl’s back in Scotland. In another story, she decides to join a band titled “The Sugar Girls”, (a spoof of the popular band “The Spice Girls”) because Ginger Sugar had quit the group. In most stories, Cheryl behaves in a way that reflects her wealth and upbringing. She is very proud of her wealth and occasionally squabbles with Veronica over who leads the more extravagant lifestyle. She can be selfish and manipulative, sometimes plotting to lure Archie away from Betty and Veronica. There are stories where Cheryl is rude and condescending to the Riverdale “townies,” and sometimes only appearing as an antagonist to Betty and Veronica. Other times, particularly in the stories in her eponymous series, Cheryl can be kind and caring. She cares for her dog, a Pomeranian named Sugar, and rescues animals in need. In stories featuring Betty, Veronica, and Cheryl, Cheryl is usually the most adventurous. Cheryl is popular within her Pembrooke crowd and popular with the boys in Riverdale, but loathed by the girls for her flirtatious nature, her manipulations and her attractiveness. A boy named Paris soon after fell in love with her and they got married later on. Then they had five kids and a three dogs named Carlota, Penta and Finn.
Cheryl Blossom was ranked 92nd in Comics Buyer’s Guide’s “100 Sexiest Women in Comics” list.
