How do you show your love for anime?
It could be something as subtle as pins on your bag or stickers on your phone or it could be as flamboyant as… exactly cosplays!
With the rise in reels, there has been a steady rise in the number of anime-based Cosplays!
Now, as a female, I have compiled a list of 18 different characters who you should Cosplay as and mind you!
We also have some of everyone’s favorite male characters as well in here so don’t shy away from a little gender-bending here and there!
18. Haruno Sakura From Naruto
Sakura managed to make it to the list, but on the borderline.
Sakura has started getting a lot of attention since the Boruto anime.
As much a classic and a great character, Sakura is to Cosplay, it does come at quite the cost, literally.
Cosplaying Sakura is a sort of a tricky affair since none of us are born with pink hair.
At the least, her Cosplay will cost a budget including the hair, contact if you aren’t blessed with naturally green eyes, her clothes, the Konoha headband, and the sandals.
The purple eyeliner for the Byakugou mark is the least of problems as of now.
17. Rem From Re: Zero
Re: Zero gave the Isekai realm a bunch of great characters but none of those compare to Rem.
Her skill in doing all the household chores is comparable to none.
She is trained as a combatant maid and her will to stay with Subaru even helping him win over the love of Emilia brought tears to everyone’s eyes.
Cosplaying Rem is not too difficult if you can get your hands on the maid outfit and blue hair, at least if you have blue eyes already.
If one is willing to invest money, it should be the maid outfit, since it can be used to Cosplay so many other characters like Misaki from Maid-Sama to Roberta from Black Lagoon!
16. Hyuga Hinata From Naruto
From fainting, while even talking to Naruto to starting a family with him, Hinata has endeared us with every single style of hers.
Do not underestimate her, mastering her byakugan, Hinata is a tough opponent to fight against.
As much as she is shy and avoids conflict, once she decides that, she is going to beat you up, be prepared.
Hinata’s design matured into a much simpler one as her character progressed.
The contacts are something you will have to invest in at the least.
Simple plain clothes with a kunai pouch at her thigh, the Konoha headband in her neck, and open-toed boots complete her design.
Hinata is fun to Cosplay as a female especially if you have long black hair and a liking for pastel clothes.
15. Zero Two From Darling in the Franxx
Zero Two has been the best girl for a lot of people for the longest time!
She has been a mainstay and female cosplays ever since her series was released.
If you have the pink hair and green eyes from the Sakura Cosplay, not doing this one would be a big missed opportunity!
Thanks to her sheer popularity, her suit, horns, and even teeth and straight-up are available on lots of online stores with ease in all sizes!
You can pick your pick directly from these stores, whether it is the bright red spandex suit, her white cloak, and hat, or just a regular red dress with white boots!
14. Boa Hancock From One Piece
Another long black-haired Cosplay!
Boa Hancock is the most beautiful woman in the One Piece world and carries herself with that pride.
She is the ruler of the Amazon Island of women and a Warlord.
Her position proves her power and abilities both as a leader and as a combatant!
Boa is fond of dresses that show off one of her long legs.
Black pumps shouldn’t be a problem, although her snake-shaped earrings, might come at a price.
Long black hair and blue eyes are something you can’t take for granted but if you do have those then cosplaying Boa is something you shouldn’t have to think too much about!
13. Nami From One Piece
A navigator hungry for money, Nami’s charm is completely different!
Nami is a beautiful ginger-haired woman and depending on the length, you can choose between a pre-time skip for a short and a post-time skip for longer hair cosplays!
Nami has sported a range of outfits from a simple black trench coat to a halter-neck red dress with pumps!
From a simple site dress to her iconic bikini top with jeans!
Nami’s signature orange hair, brown eyes, trusty log pose, and her pinwheel orange tattoo is what makes Nami, the navigator the audience loves so much!
12. Nico Robin From One Piece
Long black flowing hair, blue eyes in the anime, and brown in the manga, nobody who watches One Piece have been able to resist this femme fatale!
Robin has appeared in the series in various forms in the series.
From her iconic black dress of Enies Lobby to the iconic wrap-around skirt with a blue zip-up top with sunglasses on Fishman Island, Robin has had all sorts of clothes that she has rocked!
The ease of cosplaying her on a budget comes from this very variety!
So, what will you pick?
The pink shirt and shorts from Zou, plain blue dress with boots from Dressrosa, or the purple top and skirt with an elaborate cowboy hat and fur trench coat from her times with Sir Crocodile?
11. Female Monkey D. Luffy From One Piece
I know he is not a female character guys but just hear me out,
The Straw Hat captain has always attracted his viewers with his simple but iconic clothing.
A red shirt with blue shorts, sandals and a straw hat.
The scar under his eye is easily manageable with eyeliner!
Not only is Luffy a budget sweet cinnamon roll, he is also such a budget Cosplay!
Because it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a red jacket!
Luffy sported a purple jacket during the Sabaody Arc, yellow during the Marineford Arc, and also a green one in the movie Strong World!
He also wore a red and white striped trench coat on Punk Hazard and a black shirt with sunflowers in Dressrosa!
Luffy has no shortage of cosplayable outfits and all you need to identify him is his signature Straw Hat, scar below the eye and a big wide smile!
10. Mikasa Ackermann From Attack on Titan
Mikasa is in town and you can’t miss the opportunity to Cosplay her!
Attack on Titan Survey Corps uniforms is available for affordable prices all over the internet!
With short shabby hair, her signature red scarf, and green eyes, Mikasa makes an incredible Cosplay!
Mikasa is a no-nonsense Cosplay once you have all the materials you need.
Just put it all together and you’re done. It is also a versatile Cosplay.
9. Tsunade From Naruto
Having a chest like Tsunade’s has been and probably will always be a dream for most women.
Tsunade has a heavy presence in the series, all the way from Naruto to fighting Madara in the final war.
Tsunade has made her mark in the series as one of the strongest Ninjas of all time and this reflects in her popularity as a one of the top choices for female cosplays.
A sleeveless top with a belt, leggings, and heeled sandals, Tsunade also sometimes had a green jacket on.
8. Female Itachi Uchiha From Naruto
Yes again a male character but what can I do guys girls look way looker when they dress up as Itachi.
Itachi Uchiha is one of the most tragic and yet endearing characters in the story.
Introduced as a villain, Itachi won over the hearts of every single Naruto fan ever.
Itachi’s skills, his wish to sacrifice everything for his village, and becoming the villain so that someone else could rise to be the hero made him an absolute favorite!
Itachi’s long black hair makes it further easy Cosplay for him.
His Akatsuki cloak, fishnet sleeves, and a plain undershirt with a crossed out Konoha headband complete an effortless Itachi Cosplay.
Paying homage to this beautiful heart by cosplaying him is never going to go out of style.
7. Ochako Uraraka From Boku no Hero Academia
Uraraka Ochako is super fun to Cosplay while still being super easy!
This cheerful little girl makes such everyone feel light, positive and cheerful.
Not leaving out her exaggerated expressions and sometimes ditzy demeanor, she is always firm on her morals and values and tries to help everyone in need.
She gets along with her classmates and can often correctly recognize what’s going on in their hearts.
The Hero costume aside, her brown hair with longer bangs on the side framing her face and shot bob makes cosplaying her so much fun and so low budget at the same time!
Her school uniform is a dark green pleated skirt along with a white shirt and red tie and finishes with black leggings and shoes! Put on the grey blazer jacket if you want!
6. Kugisaki Nobara From Jujutsu Kaisen
Nobara is beautiful. Nobara is dangerous.
Nobara loves Roppongi and Nobara is Cosplay material!
Kugisaki Nobara is badass when she takes the field alongside Itadori and Megumi.
This Cosplay is simple!
Basically, all you need for your Nobara Cosplay is the uniform, short ginger wig and a hammer with a few nails.
The subtleties of Nobara’s design are the key to this Cosplay.
Her nail pouch, hammer, and white undershirt with golden buttons and cuffs!
Using pens, markers or eyeliner to make the curse mark that she got while fighting Esou and Kechizu!
That will spice up this simple Cosplay so much more!
5. Maki Zenin From Jujustsu Kaisen
Confident and if you cross her, you had better be prepared.
Although Maki was cursed with absolutely no cursed energy imbibed within herself, but does this stop her from being an absolute badass and a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield?
Maki is often the go-to female character from the Jujutsu Kaisen anime to Cosplay.
The simplicity of her very design packs a punch, which makes cosplaying her an easy task to handle.
Without requiring too many specialized props or too flamboyant a dress, Maki makes for an effortless Cosplay even on a budget.
As much fun as Maki is to see in action, she is a treat to Cosplay as well!
A simple enough design with her ponytail, uniform, and glasses, Maki has instantly made our hearts her permanent residence!
4. Fem Gojo Satoru From Jujutsu Kaisen
Why would girls shy away from being the strongest?
No one is a stranger to the wild frenzy caused by this overpowered showman, Gojo Satoru!
Guys immediately took his design and this Cosplay was on the streets within episodes of the series releasing!
The women, however, didn’t stay on the back seat on this one as well!
Fem Gojo was soon the talk of the internet and why wouldn’t she be?
The strongest sorcerer managing high heels and luscious long snow-white hair is just as attractive!
Female Gojo is a treat to the world, but what’s enough to beat this?
3. Kamado Nezuko From Kimetsu no Yaiba or Demon Slayer
Nezuko is a bomb package of potential, strength, badassery and cuteness all in a variable size depending upon the size of the box!
Nezuko is sweet, sociable and literally sees every human as family.
She has proven time and time again that with her willpower she can and will control her desire to drink blood, eat humans or engage in any kind of violent acts whatsoever.
Nezuko, the only survivor of the Kamado family besides Tanjiro, also stunned the audience with her design!
A kimono with leg warmers, a bamboo muzzle along with ribbons and hair transitioning from black to red!
Nezuko is not only a treat to watch on screen but also to Cosplay as!
2. Fem Tokyo Revengers From Tokyo Revengers
Mickey-Kun, Draken, Kazutora and so many others to Cosplay as!
Tokyo Revengers has risen to popularity within a very short span of time.
Characters like Baji and Draken are top picks for fem cosplays!
Characters like Emma and Hinata are popular as female cosplays.
Once you have the Tokyo Manji Gang hoodie, white pants, black jeans, or even cargo pants, you can pair it with whatever you wish!
Tattoos are relatively easy to draw with markers or even eyeliners, now if you already have coloured hair, you’re all set!
Fem Mickey is not to miss out on either!
Especially now with the introduction of trap characters, the potential for Cosplay has just increased further!
1. Kakegurui Cosplays From Kakegurui
Any Kakegurui Cosplay basically boils down to the uniform and if you want, the Housepet tag.
Once you have the uniform in place, you’re all set.
Adding leggings, blue eyes and a white wig makes Kirari, adding an eye patch makes Midari, adding white stockings makes Yumemi, white ribbon makes Sayaka and so on!
The reason why this Cosplay is so popular and easy is that it is so malleable to all the different characters!
Except maybe, Kaede and Ryota but you get the point.
It’s the most versatile Cosplay that gives a wide range of characters while still maintaining their individuality just because of their hair and catching differences!
So, what are you waiting for?
