The thing that stands out the most about Leela bar-none is her intense bright purple hair. Styled with long thick bangs and held back in a practical but stylish and classy ponytail, Leela’s hair is simple to recreate yourself, either by dying your own hair purple or using a wig if you’d rather stay temporary.
Check online costume websites for the right wig that works for you, and buy a pack of black hair elastics to hold your ponytail up.
Leela’s not really known for being a show-off when it comes to her fashion. She likes to keep it functional. Her outfit consists of a white sleeveless tank top and black stretch pants. You can instead opt for black yoga pants or skinny jeans if you prefer.
Check online clothing stores or local malls to find some that fit you, and order ahead of time so your costume will have shipped to your house prior to your next cosplay event.
Leela carries a large laser gun. Check online Halloween shops for something similar to Leela’s weapon, or build one yourself from reused plastic, cardboard and paint.
She also wears gray boots with thick treads and black buckles. Check out shoe stores, military surplus websites or online Halloween shops to look for a similar pair.
Last but not least, for Leela’s technological turquoise cuff bracelet, check online shops to find one that looks similar, or make your own. You can even use Halloween makeup to paint one onto your wrist.
Leela is rarely seen without her pet, a bizarre alien creature called Nibbler that resembles sharp-toothed monkey in a diaper and red superhero cape. You can order a stuffed Nibbler plush online through websites like Amazon to complete your costume if you want to add something extra to your look for your next cosplay event or Halloween party.
