What does the term ‘cosplay’ mean?

The term cosplay has seen a progressive spread among teenagers and adults. The meaning to engage in cosplay is the practice of dressing up as a character from a work of fiction (such as a comic book, video game, or television show). This habit is much related to the Japanese culture as it was coined by Nobuyuki Takahashi of Studio Hard after he attended the 1984 World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) in Los Angeles.

Nami Cosplay (One Piece)

Nami is one of the most beloved characters in the One Piece universe. However, it is one of the characters that have more designs being one of the most difficult to choose. Despite this, we have to match only few conditions. In particular, we have to respect three essential parts, these are the hair in orange tone, no matter if it is short or long, and the tattoo that has on his left shoulder.

For the basic outfit, I recommend this before the time skip Nami costume from Cos-me. It’s comprised of her shirt and top, which look exactly the same. What’s more, they are made of high-quality cloth.

So, if you want to cosplay Nami before timeskip, look no further and get these basic pieces, as they are the essentials that will give you a clear Nami look.

Nami’s hair – get the right red haired wig.

Another essential piece to get the before time skip Nami look is her signature orange hair. Don’t forget that before the timeskip Nami had her hair short! Now, on to the how!

You can, of course, dye it and get it done at a hair salon or something. However, I will suggest this wig if you look for

  • Long cosplay hair wig after the two-year separation from anime series
  • High quality workmanship
  • Wigs can be styled with a hair dryer and hairspray

Nami Cosplay Shoes.

You can’t cosplay Nami barefoot, so be sure to grab a fancy pair of brown boots. That’s what she wore at the beginning of the series after all. I have found a similar type of shoes here.

Himiko Toga Cosplay girl  (Boku No Hero Academia)

Himiko Toga is one of the villains in the series. It stands out for being a crazy girl, who likes to be smiling. However, it has gained the popularity of girls. His costume consists of a sailor uniform with a sweater, you can buy it at a cosplay store, where it comes with socks, shoes, wig and other accessories. You can find the make-up video at this link (Youtube)

Himiko Toga Hair.

Himiko has pale blonde hair, frizzy and held back in two giant meatball-like buns on either side of her head.

You can either dye your own hair, or use a blonde cosplay wig to get Himiko’s wild style. Use a brush to tease your hair, and plain elastics to hold both the buns back.

Himiko Toga Outfit.

Himiko wears a Japanese school uniform consisting of a very oversized beige knitted sweater, a blue-and-white striped sailor suit collar and a giant red ascot bow holding it in place.

She also wears a very short miniskirt which matches the sailor suit collar in color, as well as dark gray knee-high socks.

You can find cosplay school uniforms at most retail websites and wholesale websites, as well as the socks, or if you prefer you can look for a pre-made Himiko Toga cosplay costume.

Look for clothing in muted, faded colors similar to Himiko’s own washed-out-looking uniform while you’re shopping for these supplies.

Accessories.

Himiko generally doesn’t have many accessories when in her school attire. She has dark brown shoes with thick heels, a basic style which you can pick up from any shoe shop or retail website.

However, when in her villainous form she features numerous accessories including a piped black mask, knives strapped to her legs, a blue utility belt and silver cylinders attached to her mask which resemble a hideous grin shape.

Along with the blue belt, add some plastic green boxes just like Himiko’s if you’re looking for any extra details to add to your costume.

To achieve this look yourself, you can dye and style your own hair or shop for a wig. Browse online costume websites and wholesalers for the right one.

Android 18 – Complexion and Eyes.

Android 18 has a pale face and light turquoise eyes. Use some light makeup foundation to get the right complexion. Shop online or at a cosmetics store for liquid or powdered foundation.

If you don’t have light blue eyes, you always order a pair of non-prescription turquoise contact lenses, but read the safety precautions on them before using.

Android 18 Accessories:

No Android 18 costume would be complete without her small gold hoop earrings, gold-buckled belt and bright red rubber boots! Earrings can be pricey, but you can always use plastic clip-on costume jewelry if you prefer.

Check around online or at your favorite shoe store for a decent pair of bright red boots (you can use vinyl boots if you can’t find any rubber ones), and search online clothing outlets for a belt. Remember to choose a belt with a large oval-shaped gold buckle if possible!

With a costume like this, you’ll really be able to show off your love for Dragon Ball Z!

Who is Misty:

Alternatives: The beautiful thing about the Pokémon Anime is that most characters wear normal clothing, making them easy to cosplay. If you rather not be Misty, there are other female companions of Ash that you can cosplay, such as Dawn (Gen 4) or Serena (Gen 6). Or if you’re feeling devious, you can cosplay Jesse from Team Rocket (although her long hair/wig will be pretty difficult to pull off correctly). Be sure to bring a James with you if you decide to do Team Rocket!

Misty Cosplay (Pokemon)

Misty and her 3 other sisters run the Cerulean City gym. However she decides to follow the main character, Ash Ketchum, after his Pikachu destroys her bike. While she is still waiting for him to repay for a new bike, she is quite the companion and helps him along his Pokémon journey. Misty is a kind person but she has quite the temper at times, especially when Ash or her Psyduck get on her nerves!

Misty Hair (Cosplay Costume).

Misty has a little side ponytail that is super easy to replicate with a hair tie. If you’re looking to go the extra mile, you can even use lash glue to position her bangs exactly where you want it to be. You can use the orange wig from Nami Cosplay.

Misty Outfit (Cosplay Costume).
  • Yellow top– If you can find something stretchy and form fitting, that would be ideal. Remember that white or light coloured cottons can be dyed with sharpies and fabric dye!
  • Shorts – Any pair of jean shorts would do, but I personally recommend getting something high-waist because I personally think it’s more flattering and will elongate your legs.
  • Shoes – find a pair of running shoes that have similar or neutral colours.

Winry Rockbell Cosplay (Fullmetal Alchemist)

As you should know we consider Fullmetal Alchemist on the greatest anime series with emotional and engaging characters (see TOP RATED ANIME CHART). While Edward and Alphonse get the attention as main characters, we cannot forget about Winry Rockbell; the sassy sidekick for those two! Born in a family of mechanics, Winry is very knowledgeable in automail and frequently creates parts for the main character Ed. While she doesn’t possess the talented alchemy skills of the protagonists, Winry is just as useful and smart.

How to make Winry Cosplay Girls – Costumes Ideas

Winry Hair (Cosplay Costume).

If you’ve cosplayed any other character with long blonde hair, you’re in luck because you can now reuse that wig! Since Winry’s hair is mostly covered with a red bandana (or just a rectangle of fabric), I guarantee you that nobody would even know.

Winry Outfit (Cosplay Costume).

Winry wears a tank top with green pants. She’s got that tomboy look that’s easy to pull off for most. Carry a wrench with you and you’ll exactly have the look of Winry Rockbell. Definitely a nice choice if you want an easy cosplay ideas for beginners.

  • Black tube top – Wal-Mart, George, Target, Garage, and Joe Fresh are some brands that you can check for tube tops. These are easy to find at malls.
  • Capris – Don’t worry about matching the colour exactly to what Winry’s capris are, because the main look here is in the accessories. In fact, the more faded and worn, the better. Winry is a working girl and it’ll probably look more accurate if she’s got stains and rips on her pants.
  • Accessories – wrench, gloves, tool belt, and whatever you have lying around in your family garage. Check this product for another Winry Outfit.

Alternatives to Winry Cosplay.

Winry is a bit risqué with her tank top, so if you’re not comfortable cosplaying her, there are plenty of other female characters in FMA. Riza Hawkeye is another popular character from FMA. All you have to do is wear her uniform and you’re good to go. Lust is another sexy character that’s easy to do.
