Are you ready to channel the fierce and determined energy of Ryuko Matoi from the anime “Kill la Kill” into your next cosplay? This guide has got everything you need to bring the iconic character to life!
How to Dress Like Ryuko Matoi from Kill La Kill
Start with the signature sailor-style white shirt featuring a navy blue collar and a bold red tie. Then, add a black and red pleated skirt that falls just above the knee for an edgy touch. On the bottom half of the outfit, complete the look with black stockings that have a fiery red line down the back and pair it with some black combat boots.
To complete the upper half of the outfit, slip on a red jacket with white lining and matching red gloves. The jacket should feature a large white star on the back that can be easily created with some white fabric or paint.
Of course, no Ryuko Matoi cosplay is complete without her trusty weapon – the Scissor Blade. You can buy a pre-made one or create your own using foam or other materials. Just make sure it’s silver with a red handle, and looks like a giant pair of scissors.
Hair & Makeup
When it comes to the hair and makeup, go bold with a short, spiky, bright red wig for that unmistakable Ryuko look. Keep the makeup natural, but add a pop of color with a bold red lip.
For extra personality, consider adding a “Senketsu Eye” patch, a circular patch with the letter “S” on it that can be worn over one eye to match Ryuko’s companion Senketsu.
So, whether you’re heading to a cosplay convention or just dressing up for fun, with a sailor-style shirt, pleated skirt, black stockings, combat boots, red jacket, gloves, Scissor Blade, and a “Senketsu Eye” patch, you’ll have everything you need to embody the fierce and determined Ryuko Matoi. Get ready to take on the world!
