Halloween is just around the corner! Although it helps, cosplay is not restricted to just Halloween. You'll normally see cosplayers fully dressed as their favorite characters at special conventions and festivals.

Cosplay costumes are not just any off-the-rack costumes that you would normally find in a store. Many dedicated cosplayers set out to create their own costumes because they want more detail in them.

Cosplay has really exploded since the 1990s. I've seen many amazing cosplay costumes, but here's something different. They're not just crochet costumes. They're crocheted cosplay costumes! 

Let's check them out:


Princess Anna's Coronation Dress


Crochet Cosplay: Princess Anna Coronation Dress

I came across this Princess Anna coronation evening gown on Reddit and I had to take a second glance. What is this costume doing on the crochet subreddit? I had to zoom in to take a closer look.

I can't believe that it's 100% crocheted. This took TransatlanticCrochet approximately 18 months to complete and it's absolutely a masterpiece from the original Frozen movie!

She admits that it is quite heavy (around 5kg) and that she needed extra support around the waist so that it doesn't drag down the top. 


Elsa's Ice Queen Dress


Crochet Cosplay: Elsa Ice Queen Dress

You can't have Anna without Elsa and I can't get enough of Frozen crocheted cosplays. This elegantly made Elsa's Ice Queen cosplay is another amazing creation made by TransatlanticCrochet!

She absolutely nailed it with the flowy lacey snowflake cape. This beautiful crocheted Elsa costume was once featured in Cosplay Realm Magazine too!


Princess Anna's North Moutain Dress


Crochet Cosplay: Princess Anna North Mountain Dress

I clearly can't get enough of TransatlanticCrochet. The more I dig into her portfolio, the more I find that I love her.

The last Frozen cosplay costume that I'm going to be featuring in this blog post is Princess Anna's North Moutain Dress. This time she even documented the pattern as she designed it.

Oh, and guess what? It's even got pockets! 


Princess Anna from Olaf's Frozen Adventure


Crochet Cosplay: Princess Anna from Olaf's Frozen Adventure

Did I ever tell you about that one winter night when I showed my kids Olaf's Frozen Adventure and then we watched it every single night for the next 6 months? Yes, that's right. We watched this Frozen Christmas special all the way to summer.

It's a cute special - as long as I didn't have to watch it every night. Transatlantic Crochet has knocked this crochet cosplay right out of the park again with another Princess Anna crochet outfit.


Scooby-Doo's Daphne


Crochet Cosplay: Scooby Doo's Daphne

Another fun crocheted cosplay creation by TransatlanticCrochet. This time, it's Daphne from Scooby-Doo. I used to watch Scooby-Doo as a child with my brother. This brings back all kinds of memories!

This dress looks so classy that I'm sure you can find the occasion to wear it out as a regular dress! Scooby-Doo amigurumi pup made separately. 😉


Sailor Saturn


Crochet Cosplay: Sailor Saturn

I actually came across this Sailor Saturn crocheted costume by Woolly Rhino Crafts a few years ago. Sailor Saturn is one of my favorite Sailor Scouts and I am so impressed by the work that went into crocheting this costume/cosplay! 

This crocheted costume took her around 400 hours. Not only did she use the colors of her costume, but she also added shading to the bodice of the costume. This is such an ambitious piece! 


Yoshi's Woolly World


Crochet Cosplay: Yoshi from Mario Brothers

SmallRiniLady spent 35 hours crocheting this adorable Yoshi costume. If you're a yarn fan, you've probably heard of Yoshi's Woolly World video game.

It's a really cute video game, although I've never played it before because I no longer own an up-to-date video game console.

However, back when I used to play Super Smash Bros, and Mario Kart, I was ALWAYS Yoshi. Yoshi is my go-to character, so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw this crochet cosplay costume. It's adorable!


Dr. Strange from Marvel Cinematic Universe


Crochet Cosplay: Dr Strange From Marvel Universe

I've only recently watched the Dr. Strange movie. I watched it while crocheting, so I don't really know what's going on. Might have to watch it again. But Scarlet Stitch Studios did a magnificent job with all the little details on Dr. Strange's crochet cosplay.


Scarlet Witch from Marvel Cinematic Universe


Crochet Cosplay: Scarlet Witch from Marvel Universe

I watched WandaVision last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. I haven't been following the whole Disney Marvel Universe movies, there are just way too many.

But when the trailer for WandaVision kept playing on TV, it piqued my interest. This adorable Scarlet Witch crochet cosplay is another MARVELous creation by Scarlet Stitch Studios.


Slimer from Ghostbusters


Crochet Cosplay: Slimer from Ghostbusters

Stephanie from Crochetverse has made many costumes for her kids over the years and each year is more impressive than the last! Not only that but she's also been featured on Ripley's Believe it or Not.

This crocheted Slimer costume is created using glow-in-the-dark yarn. Special surprises happen when the lights are out!


Alien vs Predator (Crochet Edition)


Crochet Cosplay: Alien

Another epic crocheted cosplay creation is this Alien costume also made by Crochetverse. With touches of glow-in-the-dark yarn, this alien glows in all the right places.

Stephanie free-handed most of her costumes, so there's no pattern. But her creations have really brought a whole new perspective on what you can do with crochet!

Crochet Cosplay: Predator

I'm not familiar with this Predator character, but man is this cosplay costume ever impressive! Just look at all the detail that Crochetverse put in.

The whole thing is crocheted from head to toe which makes for a nice and cozy costume during those chilly Halloween nights.


Beauty and the Beast's Belle


Crochet Cosplay: Beauty and the Beast's Belle

This beautiful dress that resembles Belle's evening gown from Beauty and the Beast was handmade and crocheted by Nadia of Yarnutopia.

So much work went into this beautiful dress and Nadia even wrote out the pattern for those crocheters who are enthusiastic enough to crochet their own costume!

Not only that, but Nadia also recreated Belle's red cape which looks extremely cozy!


Link and Zelda


Crochet Cosplay: Link and Zelda

I'm not really a gamer and I'm embarrassed to admit that I once thought that Zelda was the name of the boy, not Link. But for those who love the game, this is a really cute couples cosplay idea!

Find more information on this crocheted couples cosplay of Link and Zelda from Yarnutopia's blog!


Link from The Legend of Zelda


Crochet Cosplay: Link from The Legend of Zelda

Inspired by many of the crochet artists mentioned on this page, Stephanie crocheted her own young Link cosplay from Legends of Zelda.

Stephanie sent me these photos last year after seeing this blog post. I'm so glad that she allowed me to share these wonderful photos taken by her husband.
