Transform into the galaxy’s deadliest woman with this Gamora costume guide. Follow these tips to emulate the skilled green warrior from Guardians of the Galaxy and become the fiercest female fighter in the universe.
How to Dress Like Gamora
To dress like Gamora for cosplay or Halloween, you will need the following items:
- Green body and face paint
- Red and purple wig or hair dye
- Leather jumpsuit
- Prop weapons
Perfecting Gamora’s Distinctive Green Complexion
High-quality green face paint is essential for capturing Gamora’s trademark skin tone. Blend the pigment thoroughly for smooth, even coverage, taking care around the eyes.
Prosthetic masks molded to your facial contours also work wonderfully. Finish Gamora’s dramatic makeup with dark liner rimming the eyes and deep matte red lipstick covering the mouth.
No Gamora costume is complete without her jet black chin-length haircut featuring straight bangs. A wig is easiest, or use temporary dye to turn your locks raven.
Gearing Up in Gamora’s Battle-Ready Bodysuit
Gamora’s outfit incorporates armor and utilitarian elements perfect for fighting. Start with a royal blue motorcycle jacket and matching leggings as the foundation.
Add knee-high boots with sturdy soles and lacings up the front.
Attach practical belts at your waist to hold weapons and accessories.
Gamora’s signature shoulder plate can be crafted from cardboard or foam; paint it silver and affix straps to secure it in place. With these quality pieces, you’ll move easily while looking battle-ready.
Wielding Gamora’s Weaponry
A warrior is only as commanding as their weapons, so incorporate Gamora’s impressively diverse arsenal. Her famous sword, Godslayer, and a realistic blaster gun holstered at your hip create iconic Martial looks. Small dagger sheaths attached to boots and belts add sharp accents.
For innovative materials, use painted cardboard and neon strips to emulate fantastical elements. However you gather your armaments, wield them confidently like the accomplished fighter Gamora is.

About Gamora and Her Look
Gamora was first introduced in the mid-1970s as Thanos’ adopted daughter. She has superhuman strength and was trained by Thanos so that she could assassinate Magus, who is the evil future version of Adam Warlock.
She agrees to do this so that she can avenge the death of her entire family. She can beat most of her opponents in the galaxy and is a member of a superhero group called the Infinity Watch.

Gamora wears a black sleeveless jumpsuit that shows ample amount of her green skin. She has long red-tinted hair and distinctive, textured marking on her face which is common among her species. She also packs a bad-ass sword.
