How to Dress Like Alita Battle Angel
Alita has dark black shoulder-length hair in a straight, bob style. You can get a similar look by dying and styling your own hair or wearing a wig. Search retail websites and costume shops for the right one, and style it to your own preferences.
When shopping for a wig, look for a straight-haired one to match Alita’s hair, or use an electric hair straightener to style your own natural hair if you aren’t using a wig for your costume.
Alita’s large sea-green colored eyes are a hot topic with film fans, wondering how the effect was created. With the right makeup and digital filters, you can create the same look yourself! Alita has black eyeliner, mascara and narrow black eyebrows. She also wears pale pink lipstick and has dark red lines drawn under her eyes with face paint.
To get the same big-eye effect, take photos using a big-eyed digital filter, or use large eye contact lenses to make your eyes appear bigger. You can buy all the makeup supplies from retail websites, drugstores and shopping malls.
Anime Eyes Makeup Tutorial:
Alita wears a basic black sleeveless leotard with legs and thin shaping lines on the front. You can buy one of these online from any retail website, or you can sew your own. Whichever option you choose, remember to look for Spandex fabric like Alita’s!
Alita has robotic-looking arms and hands, a hint at her non-human character. Adorned with wires and steel. Use a zentai morph suit with a cyborg arm pattern to get the right look.
For an extra challenge, you can use makeup pens to draw the robotic arm details onto yourself by hand.
Alita is often featured brandishing a glowing turquoise sword. You can purchase a sword online and use glow-in-the-dark paint to create a similar effect, or you can use craft supplies to make your own sword.
For Alita’s footwear, a pair of simple black boots will work. You can buy boots from any shoe shop or retail website. In the manga series Alita sometimes wears knee-high brown boots, so whichever style you prefer is up to you.
