The process of making female Ciel Phantomhive cosplay can be a little daunting, but it’s definitely doable with the right tools and materials.

In this article, we’ll go over everything you need to know in order to make your very own Ciel cosplay – from the clothes themselves to the makeup and accessories. Let’s get started!

First, you’ll need to go over the list of materials you’ll need in order to make your cosplay.


  • A black dress (the higher the quality, the better!)
  • White knee-length bloomers (you can find these anywhere online – try Google for stores)
  • A pair of black flats (make sure they are comfortable for walking around in!)
  • A wig, preferably short but long, can work as well!
  • Brown/red eyeshadow (for the eyeliner)
  • Black liquid eyeliner
  • Black, red, and white face paint
  • Red lipstick (it must be matte)
  • White foundation/makeup
  • A small red umbrella

Step 1

First, start by making a pattern for your dress. A simple black dress should work fine, but you can add details such as the sleeves and the collar if you so desire. Then cut out three separate pieces of fabric-one for the front of your dress, one for the back of your dress, and one for the sleeves.

Step 2

Sew the three pieces of fabric together, adding in elastic to give yourself some wiggle room for your hips. Then add the details you want-zippers, buttons, lace, etc.

You can decide whether or not you want to attach the bloomers underneath your dress or have them be separate underneath the dress. Make sure that whatever you do, it is still comfortable and easy to walk in.

Step 3

Next, move on to the wig. You can purchase a short black wig or even use one from an old costume. Start by brushing out any tangles, and styling as you want-this is your chance to give yourself some huge curls.

However, don’t curl your entire wig. If you curl the first five inches of the wig and then curl the rest, you can give yourself two different looks with one purchase.

Step 4

After that, start working on your makeup! Ciel’s makeup is actually pretty simple; black eyeliner and shadow along with red lipstick and blush. First, apply foundation to even out your skin tone, then add red blush under your cheekbone and a touch on your nose.

Next, apply eyeliner as well as eye shadow to give yourself some definition. You can choose between making it light or heavy-it all depends on the look you’re going for! Finally, finish off with that red lipstick and a swoop of mascara.

Step 5

Last but not least, you’ll need to work on the umbrella. Start with a red exterior and then move on to the black lace. Cut out small sections of lace and glue them onto the umbrella in an X formation.

Try it out as you go along. The goal is simply to have a lacy but still sturdy umbrella that can keep you dry as well as give your cosplay some texture on the outside.

That’s it! When you’re done, you’ll have your very own cosplay ready for the con.

There are many different types of makeup that can be used for a Female Ciel Phantomhive Cosplay. You will want to use dark eye shadow, black eyeliner and red lipstick to create her look. You can also add some blush to your cheeks to make them look rosy.

The foundation of cosplay is the makeup you choose to wear. There are many different types of makeup that can be used for a Female Ciel Phantomhive Cosplay.

Begin by applying a dark eyeshadow as your foundation all over your eyelid and along both sides of your upper eyelashes, including underneath them if possible.

Next, take a black eyeliner and draw it over your upper eyelashes on the outside edge only. Then use an angled brush to blend the black shadow so that it fades naturally into your skin tone.

Also, you will want to apply some mascara – this is where having long lashes really helps. If you don’t have naturally long lashes, fake lashes might be something to invest in.

Next, you will want to use a skin-colored eye pencil on the inside rim of your eyes. Then blend this with your black eyeliner on the rest of your eyelid. When you are finished, go over everything again with more mascara, just for good measure.

For your lips, take red lipstick and apply a thin layer of it right on top of your lips. If you want to add a little extra oomph, use a darker shade along the lip line in the shape of an “hourglass” and dust some shimmery white powder over it.

This cosplay is all about looking pale and interesting, so take a cream blush and dust it over the apples of your cheeks. If you want, you can also use a shimmery white powder to highlight below your cheekbones.

Finally, if you are feeling fancy, take some liquid eyeliner and draw two dots on each hand right above the knuckles. These will look like Ciel’s contract marks.
