Of the many gifts Marvel has given us, a healthy list of hard-core female superheroes is top among them. While perhaps not the most well-known female from the Marvel Universe, Elektra is still fairly well known. This character can be seen in the popular Marvel Netflix show Daredevil. Take a look at this guide to snag her look for your next cosplay event.
Dress up in a Black Sleeveless Athletic Tee Shirt over a Cherry Sleeveless Turtleneck Top. Paired that with some Black Skinny Jeans belted with a Nylon Military Skinny Belt. A rugged pair of Volatile Black Combat Boots will nearly complete the look. But, you’ll want to accessorize with a Brunette Wig, Black/Red Leather Gloves, Black Leather Bangle Cuff, and a Martial Arts Sai Set.
Marvel assassin Elektra is a worthy character to cosplay with a criminally easy look to put together. You’ll most likely have most of the clothing pieces already. Wear a pair of black skinny jeans and a v-neck black tee with either a red sleeveless turtleneck or wide red scarf. For her weapons of choice, you can order them online or pick them up at a local costume shop.
If you happen to have long dark hair, you’re in luck! If not, you can find a wig at a costume shop as well. For group cosplay, you have the option of adding her on-off lover, fellow superhero Daredevil or mentor Stick. You can also go with members of the Yakuza crime syndicate to make things more interesting. When you have all of Marvel universe to choose from, group cosplay is not a problem.

Raised as a child fighter and assassin, Elektra began her youth with The Chaste. By the age of twelve, she was capable of dispatching up to three full grown opponents at once. After killing a member of The Chaste in self-defense, she was hidden away by her mentor, Stick. She grew into a woman of privilege as a Greek ambassador’s daughter. She is as stunning as she is dangerous.
Sent on a mission by her mentor, she meets Daredevil, aka Matt Murdock, and falls in love. The feeling is only slightly mutual as he finds Elektra too brutal for his taste. Still, they work together and spend time together. Until realizing his distaste for her violence, Elektra disappears for a decade. She is confident and brutal and enjoys the pursuit of revenge. While she still loves Murdock, she doesn’t pine over him and shows up unannounced to manipulate him into fighting with her on the Netflix show Daredevil. She’s a lady through and through but just as deadly.
