55 Redhead Cosplay Characters

Redhead Cosplay Character Ideas – 55 Of Them!

I LOVE being a redhead, and one of my favorite things about it is using my hair as a centerpiece in costumes. Cosplay as a redhead is quite easy – there are a multitude of characters primed and ready for gingerfied costuming.

How does this differ from our list of Halloween costume ideas for redheads? Cosplay (in my estimation) tends to favor source material from the geekiverse (particularly anime/manga and videogames), whereas regular costumes derive more from general knowledge.

Redhead Problems - Cailin in Pigtails is not Pippy LongstockingI like to write a positive blog for the most part. However, there comes a time when there must be The Airing of The Grievances. This is one of those times – the redheaded edition.

My head was born a blonde, but my heart has always been a redhead. I tried to deny it, I tried to fight it, but in the end I realized why my first instinct way back in high school was to go red – I had to embrace the redhead inside of me.

I thought the bonus to this move would be ditching all the dumb-blonde jokes and annoying come-ons. Little did I know, I was just trading one haircolor’s suite of witty repartee for another.

Why Red Hair Fades (And How to Keep Red Looking Vibrant)

redhead beauty keeping red hair vibrant and brightMore and more, it seems, ladies are coloring their hair shades of red or adding red tones to give their manes some more grrrr. I’m my own example. I love the way the sunlight hits my hair and seems to set it on fire when I’ve got it a nice deep red. People are always asking me how I get this vibrant color – but the trick isn’t getting it, it’s keeping it.

The only problem: whether you’re faking natural ginger a la Amy Pond or channeling a fire engine like Eva Marie, red fades quickly. Want to know the reason behind this? It’s actually pretty interesting (to a person like me who enjoys useless trivia, anyway). Okay, here it is:
