How to Dress Like Elektra from ‘Cowboy Bebop’
Elektra’s rocking a short, dark auburn, layered bob. It’s flipped up in the back and she keeps the front few layers straight and in her eyes. If you can style your hair this way, that’s great, otherwise you can find a wig in costume shops or online to fit the bill. Search for a longer pixie cut if you’re going the wig route. That’ll be easier to style.
Outfit and Accessories:
You’ll be able to find all of Elektra’s pieces on sites like Amazon or in a thrift store.
Lay the foundation with the blackest of black skinny jeans and tank top. If you don’t have jeans, you could also wear a pair of black leggings. The benefit of jeans is that there are belt loops, which you’ll need for her black belt with a silver or gun metal grey buckle.
Elektra pops the collar on her cropped red leather jacket, so if you can find a leather jacket that has a collar, you’ll really nail the look.
She also wears a plain black choker—you can either shop for one of these wherever jewelry is sold, or just use a 3/4”-wide piece of black satin ribbon.
On her feet, she dons a pair of mid-rise grey boots. If you find a black pair at a second hand store you could paint them grey.
And don’t forget a fake pistol—she never leaves the house without her gun.
