Female cosplayers in our favorite costumes

15 Jun 2023

Fans who dress up as their favorite characters are known as cosplayers. They invest time, money and effort into their exquisite clothing, which is more than just a suit for them. In this article, you will find 50 of the brightest people who wore the costume of your favorite character. Just look at them!

Queen Amidala – Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

While Princess Leia was clearly a role model for many young girls in the early 1980s, Queen Amidala, who played Princess Leia's mother in the Star Wars prequel films, was a major influence for many girls in the 2000s.

Anakin Skywalker's love interest, or Padme as she is more often known, is perhaps the key factor in his decision to turn to the dark side. Of course, the outfit Padme wore in The Phantom Menace was her most elaborate one.

Pennywise, It

Amazingly, some cosplays seem so real only from the wearer's hair and makeup. In essence, we can only see this cosplayer's neck up, yet we are still able to identify who she is meant to be. This female cosplayer is completely nailing her portrayal of Pennywise with some skillfully placed makeup, the ideal wig, and the ideal facial expression.

Of course, in the film, the horrific transdimensional evil known as Pennywise appears in the form of a clown.

Rapunzel, Tangled

Again with the Disney songs, And at last I see the light. We now focus on Rapunzel from the 2010 film Tangled. The innocent demeanor of the Disney princess has been perfectly portrayed by this cosplayer, and the purple frilly outfit she is wearing is identical to the one shown in the film.

His cosplayer gave her costume a lift by including a sidekick. She is cradling Pascal, her baby chameleon, and giving him a kind look. "When will my life begin?" is presumably what she is wondering.

Batgirl, Batgirl

Batgirl (not to be confused with Batwoman), Batman's female counterpart, made her debut in DC comics in the late 1960s. The female superhero works in Gotham City, much like the male counterpart, and she also hangs out with Robin. Over the years, the persona has gone by a variety of names, including Betty Kane, Barbara Gordon, and Cassandra Cain.

This costume does a great job of capturing the personality of the cartoon character, even down to her expression. The belt, gloves, cape, and emblem are all yellow, which unifies the entire ensemble.

Mantis, Guardians of the Galaxy

Mantis from The Avengers is another comic book character that has been expertly portrayed in cosplay. This figure first appeared in the Marvel and DC worlds in the early 1970s. Due to her insect-like antenna, Mantis, who is half Vietnamese and half German, may be identified.

The superhero possesses a variety of telepathic and meditational abilities in addition to being a grand mistress of combat arts. Pom Klementieff, a French actress, has portrayed the role in the films Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Zero Two, Darling in the Franxx

Let's move on to Zero Two, the main character of the anime series Darling in the Franxx, for another incredible manga character. The creative team really intended for Zero Two to be the most striking character in the show, and they were hoping that cosplayers would race to fill her shoes.

According to canon, Zero Two was born looking like a monster but developed into a tall, athletic man. She has pink hair that is waist length, a red military outfit, and of course two red horns.

Black Widow – The Avengers

Without Black Widow, The Avengers wouldn't be the same. Since Scarlett Johansson assumed the part in the previous decade, this female character has grown to be incredibly well-liked; in fact, she now has her very own spinoff film, which is scheduled to be released in 2021.

It should be simple to pull off this costume if you already have long red hair. If not, you'll need to colour it or purchase or rent the proper wig.

Hela – Thor: Ragnarok

While it appears that Hela will only appear in one Marvel film, we had a blast seeing her wreak havoc on Asgard and smash Thor's hammer. Cate Blanchett did a fantastic job portraying the part and looked fierce in the green and black outfit.

Her enormous, thorny headdress is far more impressive than Maleficent's two horns. Naturally, Hela's makeup also contributes to the character's realism, which is strange given that Hela is truly the Goddess of everything that isn't living.

Elsa, Frozen

The ice queen's winter outfit is replicated in a dark and sparkling way by this cosplayer, and her distinctive long hair cascades over her shoulder.

Female cosplayers frequently choose Disney princesses as their costumes, and it is understandable why. The princesses are adored, and each of them has a distinct personality and fashion sense.

Snow White, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

This Snow White is fantastic, isn't it? While dressing up like the original Disney princess is a typical choice for Halloween or fancy dress occasions, this cosplayer really captured the essence of Snow. This cosplayer has definitely nailed it with her snow-white complexion, which is the fairest in the entire land, crimson lips, black hair, and an intricate clothing.

Of fact, Snow White is a figure from Grimm's Fairy Tales, but Walt Disney himself popularized her. The first animated feature film produced by Disney was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Rey – Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Without a doubt, Rey is the most recent female hero in the Star Wars saga. It seems fitting that Rey's garments are stained and torn since, like Luke, she was raised on a planet in the desert.

At this point, both her pulled-back hairdo and the long sleeve arm bands have become classics. This will undoubtedly be an award-winning cosplay if you also have a model of BB8 to go with your outfit.

She-Hulk, S.H.I.E.L.D.

Expensive costumes or wigs are not necessary for all successful cosplays. Sometimes all they need is some pre-existing muscle and a coat of green body paint. We have that with this fantastic She-Hulk cosplay. In 1980, She-Hulk made her debut in comic books as a lawyer who required a blood transfusion as a result of an injury.

And from whence did she obtain blood? none other than the real deal, the Incredible Hulk. In her own TV series, this heroine will soon make her debut on the big screen.

Princess Bean, Disenchantment

We're used to seeing cosplays from the Marvel and DC universes, but this one is from Matt Groening's fantasy animation Disenchantment, which he created while creating The Simpsons. In the 2018 Netflix release of the animated sitcom, Abbi Jacobson played the disobedient Princess Bean.

Disenchantment is set in the medieval realm of Dreamland and stars Luci, a demon who belongs to Bean, and Elfo, her upbeat elf. The wide front teeth and long blonde hair of the animation figure are accurately portrayed in this imaginative costume.

Queen Kida, Atlantis

Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire failed to match the popularity of its other animated features for some reason. The absence of musical sequences in the film, which came out after The Hunchback of Notre Dame, perplexed many. The fantasy action film, however, became a cult favorite.

Kida, the Princess and later the Queen of the long-lost land of Atlantis, appears in this amazing costume. With very little, this cosplay manages to convey a lot and ultimately resembles the cartoon version rather closely.

Maka Albarn, Soul Eater

A Japanese manga series called Soul Eater was turned into an anime television program. Three teams are followed as they attempt to gather the souls of 99 bad individuals in this television series, which is set at the Death Weapon Meister Academy. This cosplayer is portraying Maka Albarn, a student at the school who wields her partner in the shape of a scythe.

With her enormous scythe, pigtails, and long trench coat, Maka looks like a schoolgirl.

Mystique, X-Men

This costume is indeed an award-winner since San Diego Comic-Con 2018 acknowledged it. Due to the fact that it blends two different characters, this costume is quite inventive. On the one side, we have Mystique in her human form, dressed normally and with non-blue skin. On the other hand, there is the mutant with blue skin and startling red hair.

Rebecca Romijin portrayed the shape-shifting antagonist in the movies X-Men, X-2, and X-Men: The Last Stand. Jennifer Lawrence took over the part after that.

Tinkerbell, Peter Pan

This cosplayer has the little stature of Peter Pan's fairy buddy and has completed the appearance with pointed ears and wings. When wearing the final costume, cosplayers must pose for pictures. Excuse the pun, but this cosplayer's expression is spot on.

Did you know that the first Tinkerbell was only "a common fairy?" She is, behind Mickey Mouse, the Disney mascot with the most recognition since her appearance in Peter Pan.

Captain Marvel, Captain Marvel

This brave Captain Marvel cosplayer might pass for Brie Larson with her hair, outfit, and expression. Captain Marvel, released in 2019, starred Brie Larson in the title character. It was the first superhero movie produced by Marvel Studio. It is understandable why cosplayers would be drawn to this persona.

Larson portrays Carol Danvers in the movie as she transforms into Captain Marvel after a cosmic struggle. The movie ended up earning more than $1.1 billion globally, making it the first superhero movie with a female lead to accomplish so.

Android 18, Dragon Ball

We have Android 18 from the Japanese manga series Dragon Ball, who was previously known as Lazuli, for this outstanding costume. In 1991, she made her debut alongside her identical twin, Android 17. As the character wears a denim jacket and skirt, a striped shirt, brown boots, and a belt, Android 18 is really pretty doable as a costume.

Despite having a typical look, Android 18 boasts superhuman abilities, including the capacity for flight. She also possesses perpetual youth, so she will always be this adorable!

Starlight – The Boys

Starlight is one of the more recent costumes on our list. The Seven from the Amazon Prime Video series The Boys includes this superhero.

Starlight appears to be the only member of The Seven who genuinely wants to do good, falling in love with Hughie, one of The Boys, whereas the others of The Seven are evil individuals who use their talents to do bad things. Her outfit is heavily influenced by Captain Marvel's, although with a cape and a white and gold theme.

Ahsoka Tano – Clone Wars

Over the years, a sizable fan base has grown outside of only the Star Wars films. Clone Wars and Rebels, two animated shows, have contributed in novel and fascinating ways to the mythos of a Galaxy, Far, Far Away.

Ahsoka Tano is one of those two series' major characters. She is Anakin Skywalker's Padawan, although she finally leaves the Jedi Order and follows her own path. Her Togruta haircut and orange skin tone required a lot of time and dedication to develop.

Kitana, Mortal Kombat

Cosplay, of course, has influences from video games as well as comic novels and Disney films. In this instance, Kitana from Mortal Kombat is represented with an exceedingly intricate outfit. One of the game's playable characters, Kitana, debuted in 1993 for Mortal Kombat 2.

Over the years, the persona has taken on many different forms, and this one reveals the character's gritty side. The throwing of one of her steel fans is one of Kitana's hallmark maneuvers.

Gamora, Guardians of the Galaxy

Gamora Zen Whoberi In Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame, Zoe Saldana portrays Ben Titan. The last of her kind, the green-skinned beauty was reared and taught by supervillain Thanos, earning her the moniker “the deadliest woman in the whole galaxy.”

This costume closely resembles Saldana's portrayal of the role, even down to the little Groot that sits on her shoulder.

Chun Li, Street Fighter

For the following female cosplayer, we're going back to video games. This is how Chun-Li is portrayed, the first playable female fighter in any franchise to become well-known. This character is regarded as a pioneer for female characters in video games and made her debut in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991.

The red qipao, white boots, spiky bracelets, and buns with ribbons for her hair are just a few of the details of Chun Li's outfit that are included in this cosplay.

Hades, Hercules

God rest thy soul! Herc was in high gear. Does anybody else find it difficult to write about Disney without breaking into song? Right, then. Another gender switch occurs here, but with the blue-clad villain from the Disney animated film Hercules. With his fiery blue hair and quick-witted shtick, Hades makes a fantastic adversary. Without a doubt, we see why someone would want to channel him.

Pink Ranger, Power Rangers

Who among us has never heard of the Power Rangers? Morphin time has come! Here we have a Pink Power Ranger costume that looks quite professional, complete with bodysuit and helmet. It's so inspiring that we want to go out and combat crime just by looking at it. The phrase “Power of Water, Power of Light, Powers Unite!”

Did you know that the original inspiration for the Power Rangers came from Japanese manga? Currently, the series consists of three films, 20 TV programs, and 27 seasons.

Superwoman, Superman

Superman couldn`t exist without Superwoman. Superwoman, a character in DC Comics, with abilities resembling those of Superman. In an article from Action Comics #60, Lois Lane makes her debut as Superwoman after having a dream in which she receives superhuman abilities from Superman's blood transfusion.

It comes as no surprise that folks have dressed as Superwoman at Comic-Con given how dedicated this character is.

Aquawoman, Aquaman

It's fascinating to note that cosplayers frequently experiment with their outfits and don't necessarily adhere to the gender binary. This might entail a female character dressed as one who is typically played by a guy. Alternately, they could transgender the character to make their interpretation more conventionally feminine. With this "Aquawoman" rendition of Aquaman, that is exactly what took place.

The character from the 2018 Aquaman movie is being portrayed by this cosplayer as played by Jason Momoa. Scaly arms and the Neptune Trident are part of their outfit.

Harley Quinn, Batman

For the 2016 film Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn was played by Margot Robbie, who gave the character a boost in popularity. Of course, the joker's insanely attractive girlfriend has always had admirers, but now she is a hammer-wielding icon.

Of course, the name Harley Quinn is a pun on harlequins, the comedic figures from early Italian theater. The black and white jester attire Harley wore as a child, which was inspired by her dad, the Joker, is recreated in this cosplay.

Gwen Stacey, Into the Spiderverse

The superhero film Into the Spiderverse from 2018 was distinctive. First of all, it was a full-length animated film, and secondly, Miles Morales, a Latino Spiderman, was in it. The absurd and self-aware film has several Spidermans from different realms and times.

Gwen Stacy, often known as Spider-Woman, was one of those additional Spidermen. This fantastic cosplay makes tribute to the vibrant animated universe of the film, which is based on the style of comic book graphics.

Black Panther, Black Panther

Another gender-bending moment comes next, this time starring T'Challa, a.k.a. Black Panther. In addition, Black Panther has remained a significant character in popular culture despite being the first African superhero in American comics.

King of the fictitious country Wakanda, T'Challa possesses superhuman strength, speed, and endurance. The role was performed by Chadwick Boseman in the 2018 film, which likewise included a cast that was primarily made up of people of color. Not only does this incredible costume look fantastic, but it also shines at night!

Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Moon

Japanese manga and anime are among the most well-liked genres that cosplayers are inspired by. Due to their aesthetic and the fandoms that support them, these genres are well suited for cosplay. Sailor Jupiter, a figure from the Sailor Moon manga and anime, is shown here.

In the series, Sailor Jupiter joins a team of female superhuman warriors to defend the solar system after starting out as a transfer student. Fun sounds to me!

Te Fiti, Moana

Let's take a moment to enjoy this magnificent Te Fiti outfit. We "have crossed the horizon to find you," after all, and we "know your name." If you haven't watched Moana, the wonderful Polynesian animated film from Disney, this character, Te Fiti, is the result of Te K's breakdown into Te Fiti.

Te Fiti is the epitome of natural beauty, and Moana serves as a rather effective analogy for the perils of selfish environmental degradation. This cosplay truly left us in awe.

Daenerys Targaryen, Game of Thrones

Women all across the world have been dressed like dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen ever since Game of Thrones entered our lives. Who can blame them, though? The well-known heroine, who first appeared in the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, began her journey in exile and ultimately had to traverse a small body of water to retake her kingdom.

The most recognizable feature of Daenery is her long white-blonde hair, which is included in this costume along with her robes and cloak.

The Joker, Batman

A collection of cosplayers wouldn't be complete without at least one individual wearing the recognizable Joker costume. We are aware that this Gotham City villain has appeared in a variety of films and television programs, and we genuinely can't get enough of him. We have witnessed Heath Ledger's horrifying performance as the evil clown, and we have delighted in Joaquin Phoenix's unsettling portrayal in the 2019 film Joker.

Female cosplayer wonderfully captures the gaudy appearance of the Joker. Her gorgeous purple pinstripe outfit and beautiful, green hair.

Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman

For a long, superhero films were only about guys. With the sporadic appearance of Batwoman or a female sidekick, we had Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman. That is, until Gal Gadot, as Wonder Woman, broke through the comic book ceiling in 2017.

Gadot brought the well-known comic book and TV character to alive for a brand-new audience with the help of her Lasso of Truth, invulnerable bracelets, and a projectile tiara. This cosplayer does a fantastic job at portraying Wonder Woman. We wouldn't go against her!

Wonder Woman (1).jpg?format=webp@Wonder Woman Costume Showcase - Amazonian Cosplay/Amazonian Cosplay/YouTube.com

Cinderella, Cinderella

With this cosplayer's interpretation of Cinderella, we're back to Disney princesses. Cosplay is frequently a more imaginative version of a costume rather than an identical replica. The big blue ballgown that she wore in the live-action remake from 2015 or the 1950 Disney film adaptation is absent from this rendition of Cinderella.

Instead, this Cinderella is more sexier overall, although she nevertheless dons the princess's blue hair ribbon and elbow-length gloves. The small wagon is extremely charming to us; let's just hope it doesn't turn into a pumpkin!

Storm, X-Men

Storm is a really awesome character from the Marvel Universe. She comes from a long line of African witch-priestesses, which in our opinion already qualifies her for greatness. Storm is a mutant with incredible strength who can essentially manipulate the weather. Isn't it fantastic?

This cosplayer is channeling Storm at the time when she oversaw the X-Men's gold squad. Long white hair and two X emblems are included with the white and gold costume.

Hermione Granger – Harry Potter

At the turn of the millennium, if every boy wanted to be Harry Potter, it goes without saying that every girl wanted to be his best female friend, Hermione Granger. She has received a lot of votes in surveys as the best fictional female character ever.

It shouldn't be surprising that many young girls have wished to cosplay as the witch who was born a Muggle. Naturally, the secrets are hidden in the distinctive Gryffindor hues and the curled hair.

It was enjoyable to witness Maleficent, the villain in the Sleeping Beauty myth, informally narrate the plot. Unquestionably, Angelina Jolie gave the part a lot of weight and elevated the character, making her considerably more nuanced and nuanced than she first looked to be.

If one wishes to dress up as Maleficent, those recognizable horns are an important need. Not to mention the neckband and the lengthy black robe.

Scarlet Witch – Avengers: Age of Ultron

Fans weren't exactly wowed by Elizabeth Olsen's portrayal of Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch, when she debuted in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But as time went on, audiences were increasingly enthralled by Olsen's performances and the course her character had taken.

So much so that her Disney+ - Wandavision miniseries is eagerly anticipated by fans. Wearing a red leather jacket, black leather leggings, and red contact lenses are necessary for a convincing Scarlet Witch cosplay.

Wolverine, X-Men

Another eerie-looking costume, this time with Wolverine from the X-Men. The fact that Wolverine is often a guy is irrelevant to this cosplayer since, after all, mutants may also be women. Although this Wolverine is missing one claw, we believe she could still defeat her foes with just two.

This fierce antihero from Marvel made his debut in the 1970s. 

Wolverine, X-Men.jpg?format=webp@Supercosplaylover/reddit.com

Lana Kane, Archer

This enjoyable cosplay is inspired by the realm of animation. In the comedy Archer, Sterling Archer is a member of a broken intelligence organization. The show's animation design is based on comic book graphics from the middle of the twentieth century, which would make it a nice pick for cosplayers.

This cosplayer is portraying Lana, a distinguished female special agent who subsequently transitions into a private eye and covert agent. Her cream turtleneck, hoop earrings, and winged eyeliner are all perfect.

Darth Vader

Darth Vader is one of the main antagonists in the cinematic saga Star Wars. If he were a woman, he could look very striking, charismatic, and even sensual. Antagonists are not only bad boys but also bad girls who equally capture attention. The female cosplay of Darth Vader in this rendition looks very convincing and rightfully attracts attention.

Darth Vader.jpg?format=webp@Sir_Simon_/reddit.com

Princess Leia – Star Wars: A New Hope

Without Princess Leia, one of the classic female film heroes, no list of excellent cosplayers would be complete. The late, great Carrie Fisher, whose final appearance was in the 2019 film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, naturally played Leia back in the 1970s.

The best thing about this cosplay is that, in all honesty, not much effort has to be put into perfecting it. Half the fight won with a tablecloth and those classic hair buns!

Doctor Strange, Doctor Strange

With a female Doctor Strange, we get another fantastic gender reversal in this instance. This figure first appeared in numerous media in the 1960s and has continued to do so up to the present. Naturally, the role has been portrayed by English actor Benedict Cumberbatch since 2016 in the films Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Jessica Cruz, Green Lantern

This stunning cosplayer is portraying Jessica Cruz from the Green Lantern Corps. There is little doubt that this costume bears some similarity to Penelope Cruz, after whom the original Jessica Cruz was named. Cruz is a Justice League member and a DC comic book character.

Wearing a green bodysuit with the Green Lantern insignia on the breast, the persona features long, black hair. Cruz, who has agoraphobia, was recently performed by Diane Guerrero in Justice League vs. the Fatal Five.

The Punisher, The Punisher female costume 

This is a really cool, gender-flipped depiction of the Marvel bad guy The Punisher. With long black hair and blue lipstick, this cosplayer gave the original character's outfit a feminine spin. Our favorite!

In the middle of the 1970s, The Punisher originally showed up as an Italian-American vigilante. Comparatively speaking to other comic book villains, this one is actually rather dark; to put it simply, he doesn't hold back when it comes to using violence. Although the character has featured in a number of films, never as a woman.

Pepper Potts, Iron Man

Making costumes is a big component of cosplay. Top cosplayers invest a lot of time finding and creating their costumes in order to be the greatest. Take this one, for instance, which has a customized, hand-painted Iron Man outfit constructed of high-density foam.

Naturally, this cosplayer is costumed as Pepper Potts in the role of Rescue after receiving her own customized Iron Man suit. Gwyneth Paltrow portrayed the role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Gamora and Nebula, Avengers: Infinity War

The Thanos daughter with green skin has previously appeared on our list. And here she comes once more, this time accompanied by the Nebula with the blue and purple skin. Nebula is portrayed by Scottish actress Karen Gillan in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, whilst Gamora is portrayed by Zoe Saldana.

It's obvious that these two cosplayers went all out with their appearance. It takes commitment to cover your entire body with vivid paint, let alone the realistic costumes, wigs, and face paint.
