Raven Cosplay Costumes

If you’re looking for a dark and mysterious character to cosplay, consider Teen Titan’s Raven for this season’s conventions. Cloaked in darkness with glossy lavender hair, there is fun to be had portraying this popular character. Most of the pieces needed to acquire her look can be found in your closet. A purple satin sheet could make a passable cloak, and her accessories can be specially ordered or duplicated if you’re determined to do it all yourself. Stick on gems found in your local craft section would replicate Raven’s birthmark.

What’s convenient about representing Teen Titans is that there are at least four other characters to cosplay should you choose to make this a group endeavor. The laid-back Beast Boy is a fine option as he and Raven are very close. Cyborg, Starfire, and group leader Robin are also a part of her set and would complete the original founding members of the Teen Titans! Be sure to take a look at our posted pictures for more ideas on how to pull this look off and as always, send in your pics!

Raven Costume Tips & FAQs

Embark on a mystical and introspective journey with our Raven from “Teen Titans” costume guide FAQ. Embrace the enigmatic aura of this powerful superheroine as we provide insights into crafting an authentic and captivating Raven ensemble.

Raven's costume is iconic and distinct, featuring a dark blue or violet leotard, a long flowing cape with a hood, and a red gem affixed to her forehead. The cape should be large enough to drape dramatically, and the leotard can be complemented with dark blue or black tights. Her look is completed with dark boots and gloves that reach her mid-forearm.

Raven has a straight, dark purple, shoulder-length bob with bangs covering her forehead. This can be achieved with a wig if necessary. For makeup, aim for a pale complexion, with dark purple or black eyeshadow to accentuate her mystical appearance. The red gem on her forehead can be replicated with body-safe adhesive and a costume gemstone.

The cape is a key component of Raven's costume. Use a heavy, flowing fabric like velvet or a heavyweight satin in a dark blue or violet color to give it the appropriate weight and movement. The inside of the cape can be lined with a lighter fabric for comfort.

Pay attention to the details like the red gem on her forehead, which is symbolic of her character. The cape's hood is also crucial and should be large enough to cast a shadow over her face, adding to her mysterious persona. Don't forget the dark boots and gloves, which complete her combat-ready look.

Raven's character is known for her depth and introspective nature. Here are some memorable quotes: "Azarath Metrion Zinthos!," "I respect that you don't eat meat. Please respect that I don't eat fake meat.," "Evil beware, we have waffles.," "I'm not creepy, I'm just different." and "This is my room. Do you see any clowns?" These quotes capture Raven's unique blend of mysticism, dry wit, and introspective character, adding authenticity to your portrayal.

About Raven of Teen Titans

Forced to control her emotions in order to reign in her powers, Raven is a serious and cautious character. Often exhibiting the most maturity in the group, she is quiet and seemingly without emotion. She hides behind sarcastic remarks to deflect any attempts at getting close to her. She’s relatable in that like most of us, she fears losing control. Her emo attitude makes her difficult to get along with but she still manages to draw the loyalty of her team members.

Her close relationship with Beast Boy is a sure sign of her more human side. Though they couldn’t possibly be more different from one another with regard to their personalities, their opposite natures attract and most fans believe there is potential for a deeper relationship down the line. For now Raven is content to brutalize Beast Boy with her sarcasm and he is happy to return her attention with his easy going ways and desire to make her smile. Great couple cosplay potential!
