When everyone thought Raven-Symoné's days as the young and feisty Raven Baxter were long gone after That's So Raven ended, she surprised fans by reprising the role in Disney's sitcom Raven's Home. She plays a single mother to twins who is trying to navigate her own life all while trying to help her son manage and understand his inherited psychic abilities. Though Raven is in the midst of motherhood, her attitude and shenanigans have not taken a backseat. She finds herself in comical scenarios, and she often uses her sass to put others in their place.
While Raven's signature style surely has carried over and improved since That's So Raven, her use of disguises to get out of sticky situations have seldom come up. As a teenager, Raven was consistently finding herself acting like someone else to help her friends, brother, or even herself get out of trouble. Some of her outfits made it look like she had a complete Halloween store in the back of her closet. Check out Raven's 10 most iconic and humorous disguises in Disney Channel's original showThat's So Raven.
10 Reptile Raven

Determined not to ruin the celebration, Raven takes over as Reptile Raven. She dances around with an iguana until it pees on her, and then she brings out a boa to model. After Cory tells her Reptile Rick would wrestle the snake, Raven and her friends put on a show to make the kids believe she wrestles the boa. Unfortunately, she is discovered to be a fraud.

In a full Colonel Sanders lookalike costume, Raven strolls into the country jail with a preacher-like voice to defend Eddie. She struts around the small room pleading his case.
