Dragon Maid is now one of the most famous anime in Japan, right alongside Attack on Titan and One Piece. It’s an entertaining show to watch, but you might find yourself wondering—how do I cosplay as a dragon maid? Is it difficult to make? Will people be impressed with my cosplay skills if I decide to dress up as a Dragon Maid?

Let’s take a closer look at how to create an outfit from the show.

How to Make a Dragon Maid Cosplay

In terms of cosplay, you’ll want to start with a maid outfit. If you’re in Japan, be sure to stop by a local maid cafe for ideas on what you should look for in a maid outfit—there are so many different styles that you can choose from.

You might consider taking a spin on the classic French maid outfit and adding in some wings to give your costume an extra pop.

If you’re not in Japan, don’t worry! It’s possible to make a decent replica of Tohru’s outfit yourself if you have the correct cosplay materials. If you’ve got a sewing machine at home, it’ll be easy to put together a basic maid outfit.

In fact, the wings might be even easier—you can probably buy some brightly colored fabric from a local arts and craft store and wing-making materials from Amazon or eBay.

If you want to try something fancier, be sure to check out cosplay shops online—you can find some amazing outfits that are perfect for replicating Tohru’s look.

Once you’ve got the outfit, it’s time to focus on your look. Most anime characters have a distinct look about them that helps people recognize who they are. For Tohru, it’s the twin-tails and a pair of horns atop her head—if you want to pull off a great cosplay, you’ll need these small but important details.

If you’re looking for a wig for your outfit, Amazon has an excellent selection of various anime series that will do the job. You can also look for cosplay-related shops online—they often carry wigs that are perfect for any anime character.

You’ll need some makeup and some dragon horns – all of which can be easily purchased online or at your local costume store. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be on your way to looking like the beautiful dragon maid from your favorite anime series.

Step 1: Makeup

Moe’s face comes to life with the perfect foundation. Use your favorite shade of foundation that matches your skin tone to create a flawless look for your cosplay.

Step 2: Eyes

Your anime character has bright, distinctive eyes that you’ll need to recreate in order for your cosplay look to be complete. Use a bright green color around the eyes and lower lash line to recreate Moe’s stunning look.

Step 3: Lips

A simple pink lip gloss will add that extra special touch that you’ll need in order to recreate your favorite anime character. Moe has full lips, so add just a little bit of color to complete her classic look.

Step 4: Horns

No cosplay would be complete without the addition of your horns. Use these to top off your amazing cosplay, and you’ll surely receive plenty of compliments at the next convention you attend.
