Ellie, voiced by Ashley Johnson, fights for her life and helps others stay clear of the fungal infection spread by Runners in the Sony PlayStation video game, The Last of Us. As a nineteen-year-old survivor, Ellie is mature beyond her years due to her environment. She is in the process of learning how dark her world has become and is searching for a cure to the infection. She’s brave and isn’t afraid to push the limits when it comes to surviving in the Runner’s world. Get the look of the survivor with this Ellie costume guide.

Get prepared to fight against the Runners dressed like Ellie with The Last Of Us T-Shirt over a Black Long Sleeve Shirt. Throw on a pair of Women’s Jeans and some Unisex Converse sneakers. Ellie keeps all of her essentials inside an Olive Green Backpack with a Radioactive Pin. She has to protect herself somehow, so add an Airsoft Sniper Rifle to the look to pull it all together!

Ellie Cosplay Costumes

Post-apocalyptic movies and games never get old, and Ellie is the latest character fighting off flesh-eating creatures. Her costume isn’t hard to recreate, and you should have most of the essentials you need to turn yourself into Ellie for a night! Grab a black long sleeve shirt and some jeans out of your own closet along with some Converse sneakers that you probably already own. Order the specific The Last of Us t-shirt online to throw on top of a long sleeve shirt. Pick up a basic green backpack from most retail stores and stick a radioactive pin on it to match Ellie’s. The last item you’ll need is the airsoft rifle which you can order online.

Ellie could probably survive on her own, but she travels together with Joel while they fight off the Runners. This is the perfect opportunity to turn Ellie’s solo look into a group cosplay! Get your friends to dress as Joel and a couple of Runners to make this group costume top notch! Check out The Last of Us costume gallery for even more character inspiration for this look!

About Ellie

Ellie is the main protagonist and playable character from the Sony PlayStation video game, The Last of Us. Ellie was born after the spread of the fungi pandemic, so she doesn’t remember or understand what life was like before. She has grown up in a world without parents and where Runners are on the loose. If she is bitten by any of the Runners, then she too could evolve into one of the mindless creatures.

When she was younger and living in a boarding school, Ellie and a friend were bitten by Runners. While her friend became infected and died, Ellie came to the realization that she was immune to the Runner’s bite. Her new mission was to find an anecdote to her bite along with the help of Joel. She needed relief from her guilt of being the one who survived the Runner’s infection. Ellie may have first been naive about what was happening in her world, but she quickly learned and is well beyond her years.
