Cosplay ideas short blonde hair!
If you decided to search for a post like this, you must have very specific tastes I must say!
Maybe you have naturally short blonde hair and you want to use your real hair to cosplay, which is totally fine (I go into more detail about whether you should wear a wig or not in this post). Or you want to cosplay a blonde character with a wig, but you don’t want the wig itself to be super long. Whatever the reason, I got you covered!
In this post, I’ll give you 25 cosplay ideas short blonde hair!
These characters mostly range from genres such as Anime, video gaming and sci-fi. I should point out that it doesn’t matter what gender you are; you can cosplay any of these characters with short blonde hair. I’m sure you’ll find a character that suits you best.
What is considered short blonde hair?
For the purposes of this post, I consider anything shoulder-length or shorter to be “short.”
Without further ado, let’s get started!
1. Lola Bunny from Space Jam
Let’s start this list of cosplay ideas short blonde hair with Lola Bunny!
Space Jam 2 finally came out, there are mixed reviews but I absolutely loved the movie. What better way to celebrate than to cosplay Lola Bunny? She’s a cute character to dress up as, and she’s perfect for summer weather. All you really need to cosplay Lola Bunny is her blonde wig, lashes, white gloves and the basketball outfit.
2. Small Might from My Hero Academia
This is how All Might actually looks like; a skinny old man who is past his prime. Still, Small Might uses his knowledge to train and teach his protege Deku to become a future #1 hero. Out of all the cosplays here, Small Might is probably the easiest! Definitely a great choice for a funny cosplay ideas.
3. Jean from Genshin Impact
Of course I have to include some Genshin on this list; they’re the most popular cosplays right now and I’m sure some of you would like that. Jean is the leader of the Knights of Favonius and truly a noble woman. You might be surprised that Jean has short blonde hair, but she does! Not only that, Jean’s outfit is simply awesome. Tighty whities! Or you can opt for her summer outfit, which looks just as nice.
4. Isabelle from Animal Crossing
Isabelle is by far the most popular character in Animal Crossing, next to Tom Nook. Isabelle is a kind and gentle character, and her cute outfit is why so many cosplayers have dressed up as her!
For those who don’t know, Bowsette is not an actual character from a Mario game; it was fan-made. When the New Super Mario Bros game was coming out for the Switch, there’s an option for Toad to transform into Peach. One day, someone did the same thing for Bowser…and then Bowsette was created and went viral!
Since Bowsette is technically a fake character, you can customize her to whatever you want. But most iteration I’ve seen is great for the summer time cosplay.
6. Sailor Uranus from Sailor Moon
Sailor Uranus is actually one of the more popular characters from the serious. Her personality is completely different from the rest. And of course, she’s rocking that short blonde hair that you’re looking for. Soyou want to dress up as a Sailor Scout with short hair, then Sailor Uranus is your girl for that!
7. Riza Hawkeye from Fullmetal Alchemist
Who doesn’t love Fullmetal Alchemist? It’s full of memorable and wonderful characters like Roy Mustang (ahem) and Edward Elric. But if you’re looking for a character with short blonde hair from the series, then you should cosplay as Riza Hawkeye. She fits that criterion. You just need her State Military uniform and her signature weapon and you’re good to go.
8. Saber from Fate/Stay Night
One of the most iconic characters in all of Anime, Saber has been a mainstay in Fate throughout the years. She’s the perfect heroine to the story and does not let anyone distract from her goals. Her outfit is really cool, so she’s definitely a great character to cosplay!
9. Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles
I’m really feeling it! Shulk is the main character of Xenoblade Chronicles, and he carries his fairly unique sword with him, called the Monado. When he was first announced for Smash 4 (i.e. the Wii U and 3DS versions), there was a lot of hype for him. But his popularity peaked a long time ago. Still, Shulk is a character worth cosplaying!
10. Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls
We’ve seen a resurgence of popularity for The Powerpuff Girls. And if you’re looking for a character with blonde hair, then definitely go for Bubbles! Bring a couple of other friends along to complete the Powerpuff Girls trio.
11. Naruto Uzumaki
Naruto needs no introduction; y’all know who he is!
The main character of this lovely franchise, Naruto is your typical hot-headed protagonist who is incredibly ambitious and never gives up. With his trademark orange jumpsuit and love for ramen, Naruto himself is a great choice for blonde hair cosplay ideas!
12. Klee from Genshin Impact
The original Pyro baby! Klee is a little girl who has a huge knack for explosives. She is probably the most adorable character in all of Genshin. Her outfit is awesome and pretty easy to pull off. All you need is a red dress and hat, and a backpack.
13. Toga from My Hero Academia
Toga is quite the popular choice for any My Hero Academia cosplay ideas. And we can see why; she is your typical yandere with a cute but sinister personality. Even though she’s a bad guy, you can’t help but love Toga and her sadistic ways!
14. Spark from Pokémon GO
If you’ve ever played Pokémon GO, then you absolutely know who Spark is. He’s the leader of Team Instinct (i.e. the yellow team). As I myself have cosplayed Spark, I can tell you that he’s really fun to cosplay. You’ll look awesome with his leather jacket, and you can wear any black pants or jeans with it. And of course, you just need a short and spiky blonde wig.
15. Ken from Street Fighter
The long-time rival to Ryu, Ken is an iconic character from Street Fighter. To me, he’s like the Luigi of SF. Or the Vegeta to Goku. But in this case, you get to cosplay a character with short blonde hair. I haven’t cosplayed him, but his outfit sure looks comfortable!
16. Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist
The pipsqueak from Fullmetal Alchemist is the main character of the series, while also having short blonde hair. While he might come off as hard-headed and immature, the reason why he’s so popular is because of his golden heart and courage. As the series goes deeper, you see the amazing character that Ed becomes. And that’s why I recommend cosplaying him. Plus wearing a metallic arm is cool!
17. Sheik from The Legend of Zelda
Sheik is one of the most popular Nintendo cosplays, likely because she is well-known in Super Smash Bros. Sheik’s overall outfit looks fabulous and best of all; she’s got short blonde hair!
18. Barbara from Genshin Impact
Do you love idols? Then Barbara should be your next cosplay choice. Although Barbara is a deaconess of the Mondstadt church who heals people, she also sings and dances for her beloved followers, like an idol does! Barbara’s outfit is cute and awesome, which is why Barbara is probably the most popular choice for a Genshin Impact cosplay.
19. Hana Midorikawa from Prison School
Hana is one of the villains of Prison School, an interesting series that revolves around a few male students trying to survive the craziness of being in an all-girls school. Hana has got short blonde hair and she’s got a really cute outfit. So definitely consider cosplaying as her!
20. Tsumugi from K-On
Want to cosplay someone super Kawaii-desu? Then Tsumugi is definitely a great option! She’s one of the band members in K-ON! While she is the keyboardist of the group, you don’t need to bring an instrument with you. You can just wear Tsumugi’s school outfit, which will be easy and cheap to get!
21. Power Girl
A superheroine from the world of DC, Power Girl is a popular character to cosplay and especially awesome for plus size cosplayers! And she’s really easy to cosplay; all you need a custom leotard and a cape.
22. Tsunade from Naruto
If you don’t know already, Tsunade is actually an older woman who uses her magic to look youthful. If I remember correctly, her “youthful” makeup does crack from time to time when she battles. Despite being a lazy and reluctant Hokage leader, she does care of her village. Tsunade has blonde hair and quite the revealing cleavage, so if that suits your taste in cosplay then she is a great choice!
23. Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel in recent years has seen a resurgence of popularity due to the movie. And why not? Her outfit and personality are both so badass!
24. Violet from Violet Evergarden
Yes to Violet Evergarden! One of the better series in recent years. But the cosplay hype for Violet died so quickly, which is surprising. I decided to include her on this list because she deserves more love for sure. Violet’s outfit is so beautiful, so I highly recommend cosplaying her!
25. Link from The Legend of Zelda
The Hero of Time! Link is one of the franchise characters from Nintendo. He’s the main character of The Legend of Zelda. And yes, he’s got short blonde hair! I would say that Link is surprisingly one of the more difficult characters to cosplay (at least decently). You can just wear his outfit but you’ll look much cooler if you have his Master Sword and Hylian Shield with you.
