Hair

First up, we have Chainsaw Man’s signature hair. To truly pull off this look, you’ll need a blonde wig or to dye your hair accordingly. Keep the hair short and shaggy, giving it a bit of a messy and unkempt look.

Outfit

Next, we have the white dress shirt. This is a classic button-down shirt, which should fit you well and be tucked into your pants. The sleeves should be rolled up, and the collar should be visible.

The black tie is a must-have accessory. Make sure it’s a skinny tie to achieve that sleek and modern look.

For the pants, you’ll need black slacks that fit well and aren’t too baggy. Make sure they’re pressed and free of wrinkles.

White sneakers are a must-have for any Chainsaw Man outfit. Keep them clean and pristine, as they’ll be a focal point of the outfit.

Chainsaw Face

And finally, we have the pièce de résistance: the chainsaw mask and blades. You can purchase these online or make them yourself with some crafting materials. The mask covers your entire face, and the blades should be attached to your arms. Make sure they’re safe and secure, as you don’t want any accidents.

Cosplay Examples

Epic Cosplayer Makes Functional Chainsaw Man Helmet

One epic cosplayer named Kean Juries went the extra mile to bring Chainsaw Man to life. His cosplay is a masterclass in attention to detail. This is no ordinary rendition of the devil-hybrid character, as Juries has gone to great lengths to bring the chainsaw mechanics to life in a most impressive way.

One of the standout features is the chainsaw helmet, which boasts a working rotary chain. But fear not, dear reader, for the blades are in fact made of EVA foam. What’s more, the moveable jaw serves as the switch that sets the chain in motion.

But the craftsmanship does not end there. Juries has also managed to replicate the overheating effect of a real chainsaw by incorporating a miniature smoke machine into the helmet. And the prop is further elevated by the addition of an MG90S servo motor, which produces a pleasingly mechanical hum.

To complete the transformation into Denji, Juries has even recreated the character’s glowing yellow eyes. This was achieved through a clever use of ping pong balls and LED lights, demonstrating that this is a cosplayer who truly understands the art of attention to detail.


About Chainsaw Man

Now that we’ve covered the costume, let’s talk a bit about the man behind it. Chainsaw Man, or Denji, is the protagonist of the Chainsaw Man manga and anime series. As a young boy, he inherits his father’s debts from the Yakuza, and he becomes a Devil Hunter in an attempt to clear his debt. However, he’s betrayed by the Yakuza and dies in the process.

Pochita, a devil that Denji had befriended, becomes his heart, and Denji becomes the Chainsaw Man by pulling a cord on his chest. After meeting Makima, Denji becomes a Public Safety Devil Hunter and fights to protect humanity from devil threats.

Chainsaw Man is a complex character, and his story is full of twists and turns. But one thing is for sure: his outfit is one of the most iconic in modern anime and manga.

Wrapping Up

And there you have it: a complete guide on how to dress like Chainsaw Man. Whether you’re attending a costume party or just want to channel your inner devil hunter, this outfit is sure to turn heads. Remember to keep your hair short and shaggy, wear a white dress shirt and black tie, black slacks, and white sneakers. And of course, don’t forget the chainsaw mask and blades!

With this outfit, you’ll be ready to take on any devil threat that comes your way. Just be sure to keep a safe distance from any real chainsaws.
