Every good thing must come to an end so they say. This, unfortunately, applies to the world of anime also. Fairy Tail was an amazing series that started in 2014 and unfortunately completed this year. Its been a long journey but we all knew it was bound to happen. The same might be true for one piece but as for now, the series seems to be running strong. But I swear if I do not see Luffy become the pirate king before I die there will be hell to pay. Anyways, we have seen Natsu overcome a ton of obstacles and grow stronger with each hurdle. So I decided to dedicate this post to some amazing fairy tail cosplays. Let’s see how we can honor the series despite its conclusion.
This fire breathing badass was iconic throughout the series and was always ready for a good fight. Not only does he talk the talk but he also walks the walk. He was trained by a dragon in the ways of fire magic and is a member of the Fairy Tail Guild. His iconic costume consists of a purple robe and a checkered scarf. I really need to find someone that juggles and spits fire for a living as a shoot with them in this cosplay would be awesome. Of course, you could always photoshop the images but playing with fire is a lot more fun.
Next up we have the amazing celestial wizard known as Lucy Heartfilia. She is kind of similar to a summoner in final fantasy with the ability to summon celestial spirits to do her bidding. Each spirit’s abilities vary in power and are best suited for unique situations. If you do not like her original outfit than you have the choice of selecting her 7-year time jump outfit. Both have there pros and cons but in general the first is a bit more conservative. At the end of the day how you want to portray this character is completely up to you and both outfits look amazing.
This character quite possibly has the largest reservoir of costumes out of any character in the anime universe. Her ability lets her change outfits at will with each having specific and unique attributes. There are pros and cons to each outfit so she must choose wisely when engaging in battle with different foes. Some of her most popular outfits seem to be her heavens wheel and black wing armors. Definitely pick one that resonates with you as I’m sure you will fall in love with it and wear it to several conventions.
This character has a rather complicated backstory that I will not dive into but if you haven’t seen the series feel free of course to look him up. Instead, id rather talk a bit about his abilities and powers. He is capable of all sorts of magic ranging from heavenly body magic, meteor, and grand chariot. This character is also capable of powerful melee abilities that have injured even the likes of Natsu. I personally love this character’s appearance as its rather simple but elegant. I recently took pics of a Jellal cosplayer at Queencity anime con which can be found on my IG.
Gray Fullbuster is another mage in the fairy tail guild that uses ice as his magic of choice. If you are a new cosplayer this is a great choice as his cosplay is not very difficult. You basically only need the pants and wig to make this cosplay come to life. He is capable of making his iconic ice-make cannon which I had the awesome pleasure of photographing at momocon. Once again, you can find these images on my IG to get an idea of what this cosplay looks like once complete.
Similar to Natsu Gajeel uses dragon based magic sorta but was not trained by a dragon. Outside of this character’s outfit, he rocks metal studs on his face and throughout his body. If you already have studs on your body then you’re halfway there. But if you do not, go ahead and grab some fake body piercings as they will also get the job done. Last but not least Gajeel Redfox is not apart of the fairy tail guild and is a member of the phantom lord guild. Well at first he is. So go ahead and decide which version of him you want to portray.
Last but not least we have Mirajane Strauss. She is most commonly seen wearing a sleeveless ankle-length maroon dress. She has long white hair and wears a bright pink bow on her chest. There’s also a bright pink bow on her side which matches the one on her chest. If you are feeling a bit more ambitious go ahead an grab some EVA Foam and get ready to craft her Satan soul cosplay. It sports large black wings with a tail and claws. Definitely not a build for the faint of heart but if you are feeling up to it then go for it.
This was a very quick look at some awesome cosplays to remember the great anime fairy tail. This series had some awesome characters in it and the outfits look absolutely amazing. Definitely snag one for your next convention and feel free to rock it all over Facebook and Instagram. Thanks so much again for checking out my post and to see other cosplay related posts click HERE.
