Snakeskin Cosplay Outfits

Costume play is not limited to specific costumes or themes. Instead, it’s an opportunity for people to dress up like their favorite characters from movies, comic books, cartoon shows, etc. Many of those who participate in cosplay their roles seriously and attempt to recreate a real-life version of their personal favorite moguls. Along with props and makeup comes the attire, and that is where the importance of material and fabric use come in. 

Someone who wants to depict the Joker, for example, is not going to wear a latex suit. But that does not mean the get-up is restricted to what is usually portrayed. Nephrite, a character from an anime show called “Sailor Moon,” is a good model of how dexterous fabrics can be in costume-making. In the cartoon, Nephrite looks to be wearing a cloth-oriented suit. Because his wardrobe is subtle in colors and tone, black snakeskin would work fairly well as Nephrite’s top piece.

Nephrite Cosplay Snakeskin CostumeSnakeskin is usually connected to adjectives like “thick,” or “rough,” but those descriptions don’t apply to the whole. There is snakeskin that is thinner, flexible, has a duller finish, and patterns that are embossed rather than printed. Stretch ability varies, it’s not costly, and it would be something different to fool with.

Cosplay encourages unique costumes or add-ons, too. The evil Spiderman, whose colors are black and silver, could have a suit made from light gray snakeskin, or even have the head piece, if separate, styled from reptilian pattern. A personal twist is always an admirable touch.

Snakeskin is actually a flexible fabric if used creatively. Combinations can be made from its physical qualities to its symbolic ones. There doesn’t seem to be a genre that it cannot work with or around.


“Hunger Games”-Katniss Black Snakeskin Outfit

The Hunger Games trilogy exploded overnight, creating a buzz that did not stop until a movie was made. An advantage of a book-to-movie is seeing characters come to life. “The Hunger Games” cast is composed of original personalities, whose costumes are a match to them. This includes Katniss, the main focus of the story.

Hunger Games Black Snakeskin OutfitMany of her costumes are inspired by leathers and/or thicker materials, like her brown leather hunting outfit. For her “tribute parade,” Katniss’s hair is done up like Princess Leia’s, but her costume is far more edgy. There is a lot of snakeskin incorporated. Its finish is glossy, and the lapels resemble the odd curvatures of a snake. The costume fits tightly but not in the spandex or latex style. The material provides room to breathe.

“The Hunger Games” will most likely provide a mass amount of influence for upcoming cosplay and Halloween outfits. It’s a fairly simple costume to reproduce, and it is unisexual, which could make for a great couples-themed costume. A few options to play with, in order to make the costume pop out, would be things like color (maybe a darker brown), or exterior (maybe not as shiny). Faux leather could be added, perhaps to the collar. Snakeskin makes for a cooperative material, and is obviously a way to help accentuate mystery and strength.
