To most humans, Laura Kinney looks like your typical pre-teen girl. But what people don’t know is that she’s not really human… she’s a mutant developed using Wolverine’s D.N.A. She was raised in a place called the “Facility” where she was kept isolated and away from all forms of human connection. They gave her the codename X-23. Because of Laura Kinney’s impressive energy, speed, and super-sharp claws, the young girl was forced to become the Facility’s ferocious assassin. Luckily, she was able to escape the facility and meet Logan, her biological father.
Laura Kinney is character that seems so harmless and unassuming at first glance, but packs a serious punch making her ideal for cosplay. Fortunately, putting together a Laura Kinney X-23 costume is not so hard. Throw on a denim jacket over a shirt printed with a rainbow and unicorn, then pair with denim pants and red boots and you should be good to go.
Read below for more details on how to put together your own X-23 costume for cosplay or halloween.

How to Dress Like Laura Kinney in ‘Logan’
Laura Kinney sports a denim jacket. Look for a denim trucker jacket that has two flap pockets in front rhinestone buttons as closure mechanism. The denim jacket adds an element of ruggedness to the entire look, making your X-23 look like someone people don’t want to mess with.
Rainbow and Unicorn Sweat
Young girls love rainbows and unicorns and Laura Kinney is no exception. In fact, the grey crewneck shirt with a printed rainbow and unicorn tells us that she’s as sweet as can be, except that she can assassinate an army of people quite easily.
She compliments her unicorn shirt with a pair of denim pants. You can go with either straight cut or skinny jeans, which you likely already have in your closet.
Just like her father Wolverine, Laura Kinney’s main weapon for killing is her mutant claws. But unlike ol’ Logan, she has claws in her hands AND her feet! You can make your own X-23 claws by fashioning out cardboard or wood into three curved claws, then painting them with a metallic color. But if you don’t have the time or creativity to DIY the claws, you can always purchase commercially-made ones from Amazon or even Etsy.
Laura Kinney brings a green rucksack with her everywhere. It has a top-loading compartment and straps that close at the front.
To add more to her youthful look, Laura Kinney wears a pair of sunglasses. Her sunglasses are made of plastic, has blue and white printed patterns on the frames and comes with blue arms.
For someone who has become so accustomed to assassinations, Laura can’t wear just any kind of shoes. She needs heavy-duty combat boots that allow her to move quickly and kill with energy. So for the Laura Kinney’s character, make sure to pick a dark-colored pair of leather boots, preferably dark red, just like hers.
