Rapunzel Cosplay Costumes

In 2010, Disney Princess cosplayers were gifted with a new character. Princess Rapunzel from the Disney hit Tangled! The movie has given brunette cosplayers a chance to portray this long time favorite character. Moviegoers will know that when Rapunzel cuts her hair to save Flynn, she ends up with a dark brown pixie cut! This fun option offers an alternative look. Her outfit is distinct and can be found at a local costume shop or online. A pair of purple flats to match should complete her costumed look.

For accessories, there are a number of options, one being a frying pan! You could also include a stuffed chameleon or even a paintbrush, as Rapunzel is known to be a painter. For couples cosplay, the natural choice is Flynn Rider. However, family cosplay is an option if you bring in Rapunzel’s kidnapper aka mother, Gothel. For larger groups, you can include some of the henchmen from the pub, Snuggly Duckling! Be sure to take a look at our featured pics for more ideas and send in your own as well!

Rapunzel Costume Tips & FAQs

Embark on an enchanting journey with our Rapunzel costume guide FAQ, inspired by Disney’s “Tangled.” Experience the magic and charm of becoming this beloved princess as we answer your most common questions about recreating Rapunzel’s distinctive and whimsical look, from her flowing locks to her royal gown.

Rapunzel's iconic costume includes a lavender or purple princess dress with puffed sleeves, a pink and purple bodice with crisscross detailing, and a skirt with floral designs. Her most notable feature is her long, golden hair, often adorned with flowers.

For Rapunzel's hair, you can use a very long blonde wig, preferably one that reaches at least to your waist. You can enhance it by weaving in artificial flowers to mimic the scenes where her hair is decorated. If you're crafty, you can even create a braid with yarn or fabric and add flowers to it.

Rapunzel has a youthful and natural look. Use light pink blush for rosy cheeks, a bit of eyeliner and mascara to accentuate the eyes, and a soft pink or peach lip color. Don't forget her freckles - you can add these with a light brown eyeliner or eyebrow pencil.

Apart from her hair, Rapunzel is often seen with a purple and pink flower crown. Additionally, you might include a frying pan, her quirky 'weapon' of choice, as a fun accessory.

Including quotes from Rapunzel can add depth to your portrayal. Some memorable ones include: "I've got a person in my closet!," "I have magic hair that glows when I sing!," "Best. Day. Ever!," "Frying pans! Who knew, right?" and "I am a despicable human being." These quotes capture Rapunzel's adventurous spirit, her awe at discovering the world beyond her tower, and her playful, optimistic personality.

About Rapunzel

Rapunzel’s tale traces its origins back to the mid-1600’s, but most of the facts remain the same. A girl with magical long hair, raised in a tower by a witch who pretends to be her mother. She gets curious about the world, escapes and eventually finds love and reclaims her title. In Tangled they change it up some, but her personality and virtues remain the same.

Rapunzel is naive and innocent and trusting. She is an artist and talented singer and finds beauty even in her confined surroundings. However, her kindness comes second only to her determination to escape the tower and live her life to the fullest. Finding a willing accomplice in nearly everyone she meets, Rapunzel has a way of convincing people to work together. Her kindness makes her a damsel well worth helping. Quickly overcoming her obstacles, she finds love with the unlikely Flynn and in true fairy-tale fashion, lives happily ever after.
