White hair cosplay ideas!
We might associate white hair with getting old, which is totally fine! But in terms of the fictional world, white hair is a lovely attribute to have by all sorts of characters in different age ranges. In many cases, some of the most powerful characters in all of fandoms, they happen to have white hair!
So if you’re like me and appreciate those kinds of characters, then you’ll definitely want to read this post.
In this article, I’ll give you 15 white hair cosplay ideas you definitely should try! These characters are really awesome and cool. And as always, you’ll find this list full of characters from a variety of fandoms including Anime, video games and comics. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this list!
Note: some of these characters may have some silver lining (no pun intended) in their white hair. If their hair is closer to white, then I will include them in this list. But if their hair is clearly silver, then I will exclude them.
Alright, let’s get started!
1. 2B from Nier Automata
Let’s start this list with a character that is pretty well-known now. Her name is 2B and she’s from Nier Automata, one of the most popular video games in recent memory. She’s one of the main characters in the game, and she’s actually an android robot. But even if she’s not a human, everyone loves how 2B looks, which is beautiful. That’s why I recommend her as a cosplay idea if you’re looking for someone with white hair. If you have a friend or partner, then get them to cosplay as 9S!
2. Daenerys from Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones is one of the more recent popular shows of the last decade with many memorable characters. But by far the most popular character in Game of Thrones has to Daenerys. She’s a beautiful character played by the lovely Emilia Clarke! Her outfit is very intricate and her hair is very unique, which is why she’s a great character to cosplay with white hair.
3. Shenhe from Genshin Impact
Shenhe is quite the interesting character from Genshin Impact. Due to her upbringing and crazy childhood, Shenhe has a very cold personality and struggles to integrate into regular society. But that’s what makes her unique; her upfront nature yet caring nature.
At the same time, she also looks great with that cool-looking bodysuit she wears. If you love a white haired exorcist girl like Shenhe, then you should definitely cosplay as her.
4. Storm from X-Men
Ah yes! Storm is a wonderful character from the X-Men series. As her name implies, she is that white haired woman with the ability to control the weather. Storm is one of the most powerful X-Men team members in the series. Her outfit is hot, so if you love to show off your body, then Storm is the perfect character to do so!
5. Decim from Death Parade
“Everybody, put your hands up!”
I feel like not a lot of people know about Death Parade. After all, it’s only about 12 episodes and came out more than 5 years ago. But I truly enjoyed this series. It was short and sweet!
One of the main characters of Death Parade is Decim, the guy who is the host of all those games. I have cosplayed as Decim and found him super easy to cosplay as! You just need a white wig of course, a white dress shirt, black pants, a black vest and a nice red bowtie!
6. Elsa from Frozen
“Let it go, let it go!”
Elsa is the main character from the popular Disney film series, Frozen. All the kids love the movies and Elsa is definitely a fan favorite. As the Snow Queen, Elsa has solid white hair. She’s a solid pick for a white haired character. Her outfit is nice and elaborate for winter cosplay too.
Inuyasha was the biggest thing back then! Everyone wanted to cosplay from the series, including Inuyasha. Although the cosplay hype has long passed for this series, you can relive the nostalgia for classic Anime series by cosplaying Inuyasha. His outfit looks quite comfortable too!
8. Yue from Avatar
Who doesn’t love Avatar? It’s a great series with a handful of wonderful characters. One of them is Yue and she’s got white hair!
Yue is one of those flashback characters. She was the princess of the Northern Water Tribe, as well as the love interest of Sokka. There’s not much to dislike about her; she was the perfect woman who was sweet and gentle, while also caring much for her tribe. Yue has got the coolest hair and outfit, so I highly recommend cosplaying as her!
9. Ningguang from Genshin Impact
If you’re looking for a character with long beautiful white hair, then Ningguang is definitely your woman! The Geo Daddy is in charge of Liyue, one of the regions in Genshin Impact. Not only she is beautiful, but she is also smart with her money, working her way up to riches from the bottom.
Ningguang’s outfit is simply beautiful, so she’s a great character to cosplay with white hair.
10. Ciri from The Witcher
Good old Ciri! She’s one of the protagonists in the Witcher, one of the best games in recent memory. She is the princess of Cintra and she is a true fighter. If you want to dress up as someone who can kick a lot of ass, then Ciri is your girl.
11. Dante from Devil May Cry
Devil May Cry is an iconic video game series not only for being fun, but for having some of the most memorable characters. And the poster boy of DMC is of course Dante. He is just so badass with that red outfit and gigantic sword. And yes, he does white hair. So Dante is a great choice for this.
12. Razor from Genshin Impact
Our favorite wolf boy! Razor is a unique character from Genshin Impact; he is human but was actually grew up with wolves. So although his human language is very basic, his sense of smell is far superior, much like a wild animal.
Razor has white hair and he’s an adorable character to cosplay. His outfit is surprisingly interesting; it’s kind of like wearing a hoodie. If you have a big sword, it would make your Razor cosplay look even better!
13. Emilia from RE: Zero
Re:Zero has been a fan favorite series for the longest time and although REM usually gets all the attention, Emilia definitely deserves some praise as well. She is the main character of the series and a good one at that. Not only is Emilia a good person but she cares about others as well.
Like the other characters in RE:Zero, Emilia has a wonderful outfit. And yes, she’s got really long white hair, which is why she is on this list!
14. Edelgard from Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Good ol Edelgard! Although she isn’t the main character of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, she definitely is one of the most important ones in the game. Edelgard is the House Leader of The Black Eagles, one of the main factions of the Monastery. Whether you agree with her ways or not, Edelgard is a character who believes in doing the right things at all costs. That is why she is so polarizing!
In terms of her outfit, Edelgard always looks great as a cosplay. You can either cosplay her regular Monastery outfit, or you can go for her Timeskip edition where she’s wearing full armor.
15. Black Cat from Marvel
Last but not least, we have Black Cat. She is one of the more memorable characters from Spider-Man, being the love interest and enemy of good ol Spidey. So is she a good or bad guy? That’s for you to decide!
The nice thing about cosplaying as Black Cat is you only have to wear a bodysuit, which is nice and attractive. And her white hair really contrasts well with her black bodysuit, which is why I think she belongs on this list!
