Create an out-of-this-world costume with our Starfire cosplay guide. In this guide we will teach you how to put together your very own Teen Titans Starfire look.

Starfire is the rightful heir to the throne on her homeplanet, however there was a change of plans. After her evil sister forced her out, she was captured and tortured, and then fled and ended up on earth where she made friends among the Titans. Despite the horrors that Starfire had seen and experienced, she is kind and curious to learn more about Earth and its people. Her long red hair, orange skin, and shiny purple attire and sweet spirit make Starfire stand out in a crowd. 

Starfire’s Style

Starfire is from Tamaran, where one day she will be queen. As a Tamaran, she has orange colored skin and green eyes and her hair is long and reddish-orange. Her suits vary in style, but there seems to be a consensus on a shimmery purple color. She wears a green or red gemstone, depending on which style of Starfire you are wanting to be.

How to Dress Like Starfire from Teen Titans


Starfire’s hair is orange-red and very long. It might be easiest to purchase this kind of wig online, but if you have long hair, you could look into dying your hair short-term. Look for orange foundation makeup at a costume store or online and apply that to your face and any other skin that will be exposed. If you really want to, you can also get bright green contact lenses to get the full Starfire effect. 


Starfire wears a lot of different outfits depending on what reference you are looking at. A simple suggestion would be to find some spandexy purple shimmery shorts and a long-sleeve crop top of the same material. These would probably be easiest to find online. Attach a large green gemstone found at a costume store or party store (or online) to the crop top near the top. 

Orange Pantyhose:

If you don’t want to apply makeup on your legs you can look for some orange pantyhose that will give the impression of orange skin and also keep your legs a little warmer. 


Starfire doesn’t always wear gloves, but when she does they seem to be white, silver, or the same shimmery purple. Depending on the color you could find them at a costume store or online. 


Starfire’s boots are long and even go above the knee. They usually match the shimmery purple of the outfit. You could spray paint a pair of long boots that you find at a thrift store, or once again, it might be easiest to find them online.
