DISCLAIMER: I have some affiliate links in this article if you’re looking to wear any of these cosplays. Either I myself have bought from those stores, or I believe they are fairly sweet deals. If you’re buying from these sites, you’re also supporting me and my hobby so I appreciate it!
1. Nezuko from Demon Slayer (most trendy black hair cosplay right now)
I had to include Nezuko in this list, because Demon Slayer is one of the most popular cosplays of 2020. Nezuko is Tangerou’s younger sister and she has that iconic look mouth guard that makes her look unique. Of course, if you decide to cosplay her, you won’t be the only one. But if you love Demon Slayer and love Nezuko, then who cares?
2. Roy Mustang from Fullmetal Alchemist (classic black hair cosplay)
I’m going to start off the list with one of my favorite cosplays of all time – Roy Mustang! Who doesn’t love the colonel? Roy may not be the main character of FMA, but he definitely plays a big role in the story and one of the most popular male characters in Anime (link to easy cosplay guys). And why not? He can make fire with a snap of a finger…and he loves dogs!
3. Sebastian from Black Butler
Sebastian might look like a butler with fancy clothes, but he’s actually quite one of many easy Anime characters to cosplay. Like Ouran Host Club, all you need is a bit of formal clothing and you’re done most of the Cosplay. The blazer is a bit unique however.
4. Luffy from One Piece (easy black hair cosplay)
It doesn’t get any easier than this. If you love pirates, then you’ll love cosplaying Monkey D. Luffy! The iconic main character of this long-running Anime, he is super easy Anime cosplay to do.
5. Sailor Mars (awesome Sailor Scout black hair cosplay)
While Usagi/Sailor Moon has the blonde hair, Sailor Mars has got the dark black hair! Although your hair probably isn’t as long as hers, she’s still a great option if you want to cosplay someone from Sailor Moon.
6. Yumeko from Kakegurui (cute black hair cosplay)
The compulsive gambler! The main character of Kakegurui, Yumeko on the outside seems like a friendly and cheery girl. But when it comes to gambling, she is definitely ruthless and cunning. Yumeko is pretty easy to cosplay since her costume is basically a modified school outfit.
7. Kirito from Sword Art Online
The main character of one of the polarizing series of all time, Kirito is the protagonist of Sword Art Online. He has short black hair, so you might be able to cosplay him without even using a wig! Kirito also pairs well with Asuna as a cosplay couple.
8. Homura from Madoka Magica
Madoka usually gets all the attention, but I feel Homura is real heroine of the series. Homura has a darker aesthetic with her black hair and purple share outfit. So if you don’t want to bright and pink like Madoka, then Homura is a better cosplay option for you.
9. L from Death Note
L is by far THE easy Anime characters to cosplay in all of Anime Cosplaying L is so easy; it’s kind of a joke to cosplay him. Depending on your personality, you may or may not want to cosplay L.
10. Genshin Impact characters
If you’ve haven’t been hiding under a rock, you would notice that Genshin Impact is incredibly popular right now. There are a variety of characters to cosplay, including cosplay characters with black hair. Some of these characters include: Beidou, Venti and Zhongli! Check out this post if you’re looking for more Genshin Impact cosplay ideas.
11. Naruto characters
Naruto is one of the biggest Anime of all time and the characters are still popular today. There’s a wide variety to choose from. But if you’re looking for black hair cosplay characters, you can go for people like Rock Lee, Sasuke, Kiba and Shikamaru. I’ve also made a separate post for Naruto cosplay ideas.
12. Asami from Avatar: The Legend of Korra
Asami is a girl who is the daughter of a wealthy father. Unlike many of the characters, Asami has no special abilities like airbending. But she is skilled in ordinary things such as engineering and driving. Asami is a beautiful-looking character who eventually becomes Korra’s love interest in the end. So she is perfect if you’re looking for an LGBT cosplay couple idea.
You can also go for Katara and Azula. Both are wonderful cosplay characters with black hair!
13. Disney princesses
There are a lot of beautiful and awesome Disney princesses throughout the years with black hair. If you want to cosplay a black hair Disney princess, you’ll have lots to choose from, including:
- Snow White
14. Hestia from Danmachi (Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon)?
Hestia is a very polarizing character from Danmachi! She is either your perfect Waifu Anime girl, or she is another overrated character that you have to ignore because everyone else loves her. Either way, Hestia is a good choice if you want someone easy to cosplay. You really just need a white mini-dress and her signature long-black hair.
15. Nico Nazawa from Love Live!
Nico Nico Nii! I’d say that Nico is one of the best black hair cosplay characters for beginners. If you yourself have long black hair, you can easily shape your hair into 2 ponytails. All you need is her dress and you’re good to go!
16. Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family
The Addams Family is an older series but lately has been getting a lot of hype. I say it’s cause we watched the show when we were young. And now we want to cosplay when we’re all grown up! The most popular character of course is Wednesday Addams and the good news is that she is a closet cosplay.
17. Kiki’s from Kiki’s Delivery Service
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.
18. Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist (casual black hair cosplay)
Even though Fullmetal Alchemist is (somewhat) an older series, the show is still on top up to this day. And one of the more well-known cosplays from FMA is Lust. Why? She’s got that sexy, seductively-evil look. And she’s really easy to do: long black dress, black hair/wig and claws. So if you want to add another cosplay idea to you list, Lust should be one of them!
19. Mavis Dracula from Hotel Transylvania
Remember that movie, Hotel Transylvania? Who can forget the awesome Mavy Wavy, the vampire who is kind and gentle but wants to experience life outside of the hotel? Mavis is a great choice for a closet cosplay!
20. Aya Asagiri from Magical Girl Site (underrated black hair cosplay)
Twisted and dark like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Magical Girl Site follows Aya Asagiri, a shy and depressed middle school girl who gains magical powers through a mysterious website. Little does she know that the website managers have something sinister planned for the world! Aya Asagiri is fairly easy to cosplay; a basic schoolgirl Seifuku uniform. Just add long black hair and red makeup to make your eyes look bloody and you’re done!
