10 Amazing Crochet Cosplay Creations

Friday, 1 October 2021

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 favourite 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! 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. This 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 was designed it.

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

Scooby-Doo's Daphne

Crochet Cosplay: Scooby Doo's Daphne

And last but not least, another fun crocheted cosplay creation by TransatlanticCrochet. This time, it's Daphne from Scooby-Doo. 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 favourite 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 colours of her costume, but she also added shading to the bodice of the costume. This is such an ambitious piece!

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 that 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!

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!

Check out all the costumes that she's made on her blog.


Alien vs Predator (Crochet Edition)

Crochet Cosplay: Alien

Another epic crocheted cosplay creation is this Alien costume is 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. The whole thing is crocheted from head-to-toe which makes for a nice and cozy costume during those chilly Halloween nights.
