Cosplay ideas for brunette!
Are you looking for brunette cosplay ideas? If so, you’ve come to the right post!
Whether you’re naturally a brunette, or you want to cosplay a character with brown hair, you have lots of characters to choose from. I’ve done a cosplay idea post for black-haired characters. Next was for blondes (or if you wanted to be one). Now we will give the brunette cosplay ideas some love!
So in this article, I will go through 25 brunette cosplay ideas for you, from all different genres and fandoms. By the end of this post, you’ll have tons of cosplay ideas for brunette.
Like the black and blond(e) hair post, if you’re a natural brunette, you can use your real hair to do some of these cosplays (remember that you don’t have to use a wig). But if not, then go for a brown hair wig that fits the best description for these characters.
And of course, it doesn’t matter what gender you are, anyone can do these cosplays.
Let’s get started!
Aerith is one of the most popular characters not just from Final Fantasy, but in the gaming universe. She’s a sweetheart girl who unfortunately goes through a tragic end in the game. Her innocent looks and cool backstory is why she’s a fan favorite. In terms of characters with brunette hair, I’d say Aerith is the poster child!
The gentle giantess, Diane is one of the more popular characters from The Seven Deadly Sins. She is incredibly strong, using her hammer and her connection to nature to fight off enemies. It doesn’t take much to cosplay Diane, making a good choice for a brunette cosplay ideas!
3. Camie Utsushimi
Camie was introduced in Season 4 of MHA and what a beauty she is! Definitely one of the more popular MHA characters to cosplay today.
If you want to cosplay a character from Genshin that’s completely different from the rest, then Xinyan is your girl! Not only does she have brown hair, but she’s got curly hair buns as well! But all we know is that she loves rock and roll and has a rebellious personality.
While on the outside she might just look like another pretty face, Dorothea is one of the more interesting characters of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Growing up as a poor commoner and then being recruited for the opera for her singing ability and looks, she enrolls in the Monastery to prove that you can fight and be successful without any nobility. While many Fire Emblem characters have quite the exotic hair color (e.g. red, blue, orange), Dorothea is your simple brunette!
6. Haruhi Suzumiya
Considered one of the best Anime series of the 2000s, Haruhi is a very recognizable character and people will love that you’re showing appreciation for one of the most loved characters of all time. And she’s pretty easy to cosplay as well.
7. Ochaco Uraka
Every Shonen series needs someone like Uraraka: laid back, bubbly and a cheery sidekick of the main character! Some may not like Uraraka for being such an airhead at times (which is coincidental due to her Quirk nullifying gravity). But she is still one of the more popular characters of MHA cosplay to do.
This is from an older series but still one of those great easy cosplay ideas. Kirisu Makise is a good choice if you want someone simple to cosplay.
By far the most popular character from Overwatch, D.va is still a fan favorite after all these years. There are many cosplay variations of her character that you can do. But her bodysuit version is by far the easiest!
10. Hu Tao
Hu Tao is quite the interesting character! She is the director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, and tries to advertise her “services” to the people of Liyue Harbor, much to their annoyance. Hu Tao has a morbid sense of humour and loves to spook others. Even though she has been released recently, she’s already quite popular with Genshin players. Hu Tao holds a staff and wears a cute outfit, so if you like to make odd jokes like her, you should cosplay as her!
Like the title suggests, Korra is the main character of the 2nd series, The Legend of Korra. Unlike Aang who is level-headed, Korra is pretty hot-headed and likes to take action and fight first rather than work things out peacefully. While she is athletic and strong, over time she eventually develops her spiritual side, which is important for her role. Being the main character, Korra is a great cosplay option!
Oh my! Manuela is one of the other professors at the Monastery, and a former songstress in the opera. You’d think with her position, she would be formal and kept. But in fact, she’s quite the opposite! Manuela is known to drink regularly and to flirt with the knights in search of her true love.
Explosion! Megumin is one of the main characters from KonoSuba, a popular Anime/manga series. Megumin is quite the interesting character, being your typecast Chuunibyou But unlike most Chuuni, Megumin actually has super powers. And one of them is making things explode!
Tenten is similar to Rock Lee in that she doesn’t possess any natural powers or gifted abilities, but she works hard in order to compensate for this. She also wants to prove that females can be just as strong as males when it comes to being a ninja. She has such a great Naruto outfit!
Who wouldn’t want to cosplay Best Girl? Raphtalia is not only adorable and someone you want to PROTECC, but she’s also an amazing swordswoman who ends up kicking a lot of ass in the show. I feel like Raphtalia is one of the more well-known cute Anime girl cosplay ideas out there right now!
Katara is an iconic character from Avatar She’s known for being a bit stubborn yet strong at the same time. Katara is like a mother to many of the other characters in Avatar; she is known to take care of the people around her! Not only is Katara a cosplay ideas for brunette, cosplaying Katara is fun for photoshoots. You can do her iconic waterbending pose and it would look so cool.
One of the first characters you meet in Genshin Impact, Amber is an Outrider of the Knights of Favonius (aka part of the Mondstadt royalty). She is a master glider and specializes in using the bow! Although Paimon may be the true ambassador and mascot of Genshin Impact, I say Amber is also a poster girl for this game with her looks and cool-looking outfit. If anyone has played this game, they’ll definitely know who Amber is!
Yuna is one of the most popular characters of Final Fantasy. She’s from FFX as the famous Summoner. We don’t often look at Yuna’s hair but she’s definitely a brunette! You can either go for her original outfit, or go for the sexier version from FFX-2.
19. Hermione Granger
Hermione is from the well-known Harry Potter franchise, and also made famous by Emma Watson. She makes for a great casual cosplay, as you only need her wardrobe and wand to look like her.
Tracer is a well-known character from the popular shooter game, Overwatch. With her eccentric look and personality, she’s a great choice to cosplay. Most people know who she is, so you’ll have no issues with anyone recognizing you.
21. Rin Nohara
If you’re like me and haven’t watched the entire series, you probably won’t know who Rin is. But she was a pretty important character that sets the story for Naruto! She’s a sweet girl who cares about Obito and Kakashi. Rin is relatively obscure in my opinion, so she’s a good choice for a lesser-known character!
Want to Cosplay someone easy? Then you should cosplay Platelet from Cells at Work! All you need is her white hat and blue shirt to cosplay from this series. Oh, and brown hair or wig of course.
23. Black Widow
Why not dress up as one of the sexist and badass Avengers cast? Black Widow is fairly easy to cosplay as well!
24. Sakura Kinomoto
Her hair might look a bit more blonde in her magical form, but I still consider Sakura a brunette most of the time!
If you’re looking for a cute/kawaii magical girl to cosplay, then Sakura Kinomoto is totally for you! Similar to how many magical girl series start off, Sakura is your ordinary 10 year old girl in school. One day, she accidentally releases a bunch of magical cards called the Clow cards. At this point, she transforms into a magical girl and goes out on an adventure to retrieve the Clow cards back by fighting them in their battle form (think Yu-Gi-Oh).
The nice thing about cosplaying Sakura is that she has a lot of different outfits to choose from. You can go for her school outfit or one of her many transformation costumes (like the one in the photo). Be sure to carry her wand when you decide to pick one!
Kiki is one of the easiest magical girl outfit cosplay ideas worth doing. This Studio Ghibli film is pretty old but she is still a great and easy choice for a female magical girl. It’s really easy; a dark navy dress, a red head bow and a broom is all you need to cosplay this sweet-hearted witch.
