Long hair cosplay ideas!
Whether you have long hair yourself, or you simply admire cosplayers who have long-hair wigs, there is a reason why they get the most attention both online and in-person. Characters with beautiful long-hair make for some of the best cosplay ideas ever. So if you want to be one of those cosplayers who’s dressed up as a character with long hair, then this post is definitely for you!
In this article, I’ll give you 20 long hair cosplays you NEED to try! Some of these are just simply too beautiful to pass up with their long hair. As usual, I will list out characters from a variety of fandom, including Anime, comics and video games. I’m sure one of these characters will be up to your liking if you fancy long hair characters. In terms of long hair, I will consider a character with long hair if the character’s hair goes past their shoulder.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
1. Raphtalia from The Rising Of The Shield Hero
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!
2. Mercedes from Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Her name is actually Mer-Ced-Dez, not the way you pronounce the famous car brand. Mercedes is one of the characters in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Not only is Mercedes is the best healer in game, she is also popular with her sweet and wholesome personality. Her outfit is really nice. If you go for her regular Monastery version, she has much longer hair than her Timeskip edition. Plus it’s easier to cosplay as. 🙂
3. Mona from Genshin Impact
Mona is one of the most popular characters from Genshin Impact to cosplay as. And it’s not surprising to see why. Her outfit is just simply amazing: an astrology-themed leotard outfit that is very attractive, with a cool-looking magician hat. Her design has to be one of the best from the game. On top of that, Mona’s personality is just too cool to pass her up; she’s got those Tsundere vibes that everyone loves! And yes, she’s got a lot of hair despite the hat.
Mona is one of the best characters to dress up as for a long hair cosplay idea!
4. Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist
If you want to cosplay an attractively evil character from one of the best Anime series of all time, then look no further than Lust from Fullmetal Alchemist. She is one of the main villains from the series. And yes, she’s got really long black hair and even longer claws! The nice thing about cosplaying Lust is that she’s really easy to do; all you need is a long black dress basically.
5. Sailor Mars from Sailor Moon
Fighting evil by moonlight; winning love by daylight! Who doesn’t love Sailor Moon, probably the most popular magical girl series of all time? I would say you could cosplay any of the Sailor Scouts because most of them have long hair. But Sailor Mars probably has the longest hair of them all! If you can get a group together, you can do a full Sailor Moon cosplay group!
6. Wednesday Addams
Wednesday Addams has always been a great choice for cosplay. Not only is she a wonderful character, but she’s also pretty easy to dress up as. The most important thing is her long signature ponytails with her hair!
With the new Netflix series that came out late last year that stars Wednesday Addams, she has seen a HUGE resurge in popularity! So if you want to cosplay someone who is popular and easy to do casually, then Wednesday Addams is your girl!
7. Junko from Danganronpa
Now if you’re looking for a character with really really long hair, then Junko from Danganronpa is your girl! You’ve probably seen her before; she’s that character with the schoolgirl outfit with the curly pink hair! Even though Danganronpa has been around for a minute, Junko is still one of the most popular characters to cosplay as. And why not? Her outfit is pretty awesome and her personality as you can imagine, is pretty insane. So who wouldn’t want to cosplay as Junko? I highly recommend since she’s got really amazingly crazy long hair!
8. Yor Forger from Spy X Family
Yes to For Forger! If you didn’t know, Spy X Family is one of the most popular Anime series right, and we have probably the hottest character to cosplay in Yor Forger at the moment. She is a convert assassin in an arranged marriage with Loid Forger. Although her job is fierce, she has an interesting personality! Yor has a great outfit that’s easy to make and wear. It’s basically a modified black dress with boots! And she’s got long black hair to complement her look!
9. Neptune from Hyperdimension Neptunia
I bet you never thought of this character from a sleeper video game series.
Neptune is the main character in the fictional universe of Gamindustri (how creative). The show is a play on the console wars, where four goddesses that represent each video game console fight to stay alive and win the console war. Neptune happens to be one of these four original goddesses/consoles. Hyperdimension Neptunia sounds like a pretty serious plot but it’s actually pretty light-hearted.
When Neptune is in her normal form, she’s one of those girls you just want to PROTECC. But when she transforms, she looks like your sexy Waifu goddess! Both outfits look great, so take your choice in which version of Neptune you want to cosplay! Both forms feature long purple, so take your pick!
10. Tharja from Fire Emblem: Awakening
Tharja is still popular after all these years. Why? She is one of the hottest female cosplays from Fire Emblem! She herself can be quite malicious! She’s from Fire Emblem: Awakening, the 3DS game that gave new life and new fans to the series. Even though the game came out nearly 10 years ago, Tharja is still quite popular to this day. So if you want to dress up as an attractive female from Fire Emblem, Tharja is a great choice!
11. Kaeya from Genshin Impact
I would have to say of all the cosplays I’ve done, Kaeya is probably the character with the longest wig! And I didn’t mind at all; it was fun playing with the wig hair and finding where to put it (usually in front of me). If you don’t know, Kaeya is one of the characters from Genshin Impact. He is cool, mysterious and cunning. He is definitely one of the Husbandos of the game for sure.
All these things are why many people (including myself) have cosplayed as Kaeya. I highly recommend cosplaying as him, especially since he has long hair!
12. Kirisu Makise from Stein’s Gate
This is from an older series but still one of those great easy cosplay ideas. Kirisu is one of the main characters of the series, being mature and sometimes sarcastic at the same time. Overall, she’s a cool character and a good choice if you want someone simple to cosplay.
13. Yuno Gasai from Future Diary
Even more crazy characters on this list! Future Diary came a long time ago. But even after all these years, Yuno Gasai is still THE poster girl for Yandere. After all, Yuno has a crush on someone to the point where they’ll use violence to maintain that relationship. She’s so sweet and…yet so deadly! A perfect pink-haired psychopath. If you’re looking to cosplay someone a little crazy (and cheap), then why no go for the poster girl of Yandere that is Yuno Gasai?
14. Dorothea from Fire Emblem: Three Houses
One of the main Waifus from Fire Emblem, Dorothea to this day is still one of the most popular characters! And why not? She is a beautiful character and she is actually an opera singer. So she can be charming and be a wonderful opera singer! And of course, she’s got that long brunette hair if that’s what you’re looking for.
Both her regular Monastery outfit and her Timeskip outfit are wonderful. The Timeskip edition is a lot harder to do, but looks amazing. It’s up to you.
15. Poison Ivy
One of the most iconic characters in all of comics, Poison Ivy has remained popular throughout the years. She is sexy and she is definitely evil! What makes her stand out are her outfit. You can go for her original green outfit with the long red hair!
16. Amber from Genshin Impact
Outrider Amber is one of the first characters you meet in the Genshin Impact game. She works for the Knights of Favonius on Mondstadt and helps out the people in that region. Amber is known for her bubbly and energetic personality who carries around her baron bunny! Amber is just a fun character to cosplay! Her outfit is cute and of course her hair is long. She’s a brunette so you want to use your own brown hair or wear a brown wig, then Amber is an excellent choice for this!
17. Nurse Joy from Pokémon
Good old Nurse Joy! She’s an iconic character from the Pokémon series. If you’ve played Pokémon or watched the Anime, then you probably know who Nurse Joy is! How can you not love Nurse Joy? She’s the one that heals your team at the Pokémon center after a hard battle! When the Anime was popular back in the day, she became even more notable, especially with Brock falling in love with her all the time. Nurse Joy is a great choice, because almost everyone knows who she is. All you need to cosplay her is a long pink wig and her hospital gown and headwear.
18. Hestia from Danmachi (Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon)?
Oh yes! If you want to cosplay someone with really long black hair, then Hestia is your girl! 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.
19. Scathach from Fate/Grand Order
Fate/Grand Order has been a popular mobile game for all these years. And Scathach is a character that everyone loves from the series. Her outfit is beautiful, she’s got really really long hair. Scathath is a great character to cosplay as!
20. Raiden Shogun from Genshin Impact
Raiden Shogun, also known as the Electro Archon! Did you know that Raiden Shogun was the most popular character banner? This just shows how insanely popular the Electro Archon is. Not just in the game but in the cosplay world as well. There have been tons of Raiden Shogun cosplayers and for good reason. Not only is her outfit super-hot, but everyone likes her character design. I mean, who doesn’t want to dress up as the fierce Archon who pulls a sword out of her chest? 🙂 Great character with long purple hair!
