If shounen, fantasy, and horror are your cup of tea, then you have probably watched Jujutsu Kaisen. This interesting blend of occult and shounen has become popular due to its unique characters and some very intelligently developed plot devices. However, while most of you may have joined the fandom due to a certain white-haired mentor, he is not the main hero of the series. 

Jujutsu Kaisen follows Itadori Yuuji, a somewhat unusual teenager. Due to reasons unknown, Itadori is not afraid of seeing or even fighting “curses.” These curses are manifestations of negative emotions emitted from all living beings on a daily basis—some of these morph into rather dangerous variants.

After a fight with one specifically strong Curse, Itadori finds himself as the host to Ryomen Sukuna. Sukuna is a high-grade curse with power beyond any jujutsu sorcerer’s control. Due to his connection with Sukuna, Itadori gets entangled in the business of the Jujutsu Sorcerers. An organization that deals with these curses. 

The show has much to offer in terms of animation style, comedy, emotional moments, and interesting fantasy phenomena. In this guide, we bring you some amazing ideas for your Jujutsu Kaisen cosplay. Now that you have some idea of the show’s storyline, let’s go over some of the best cosplay choices. Stay tuned for more inspiration. 

Characters you can cosplay:

1. Itadori Yuuji / Ryomen Sukuna – Jujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Itadori Yuuji is the main protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen and the current vessel of Ryomen Sukuna. He is a 15-year-old boy with a rather muscular physique and spiky hair. Before attending Tokyo Jujutsu High, he mostly wore baggy clothing, including a hoodie and blue denim pants. In the anime, he also wore bright red boots.

He is quite athletic and can even take down a low-grade curse with his fists. As for himself, his eye color is light brown. However, while being Sukuna doesn’t change his eye color, he gets a change in his appearance. One of the significant changes is the appearance of black markings all over his body. Moreover, Sukuna often forms a mouth from Itadori’s hands or his cheek to talk to other beings. 

Itadori also has two marks on both of his cheekbones which serve as slits for Sukuna’s eyes. Now for the cosplay part, you will need to focus on Itadori’s facial features as well as clothing. Here, clothing is the easy part. As a student of Tokyo Jujutsu High, Itadori wears a slightly customized version of the uniform with his scarf added as a personal touch.

Itadori’s wig is usually styled in an undercut fashion. You can also try the haircut as it is rather simple as compared to many other anime hairstyles. His uniform is similar to his fellow classmates, however, includes his own style. He wears a red hoodie and a long sleeve shirt on top with the same shoes. 

2. Gojo Satoru – Jujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Gojo-sensei is probably the most popular character in the series, even rivaling Sukuna. On the front, he is a teacher at Tokyo Jujutsu high and sports a similar outfit to his students. However, there is more to him than meets the eye. Gojo sensei has a complex personality being funny at one moment and eerily silent the next. One of Gojo’s most noticeable features is the blindfold he wears. 

While we are initially kept in the dark about the reason, Gojo Satoru is almost always seen with his eyes covered. He would sometimes wear his iconic sunglasses and keep his eyes concealed. Satoru is also quite good-looking with a lean, athletic build and an attractive smile. His hair, like most anime characters, is not regular black. His spiky white hair is often styled in slightly different ways. 

As a jujutsu sorcerer and teacher, Satoru mostly wears a high-collared black zip-up jacket, pants, and black shoes. Despite the fact that Jujutsu Kaisen is a relatively new series, Gojo sensei is so popular that fans from all over the world have created their own Gojo looks. 

3. Nobara Kugisaki – Jujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Nobara is the third student in Gojo’s class, alongside Megumi and Fushiguro. She is a beautiful girl of average height. She has short orange-colored hair that reaches just below her ears. Her eye color is also similar to her hair.

However, despite her initial timid appearance, she knows how to hold her ground. Nobara is usually seen sporting her uniform, which, like her male class fellows, includes a button-down black jacket top and a long skirt just above her knees. She also wears black stockings and brown school shoes. 

Nobara uses a hammer and nail as her Jujutsu tools. These are kept nicely in a brown leather belt. While she is not the friendliest soul, she slowly bonds with her classmates and proves to be a dependable comrade. Her face is partially covered in black markings when using some of her jujutsu. Her hairstyle and these markings are her iconic look. So if you are going for a Nobara cosplay, make sure to focus on these. 

Other than her uniform, we also see Nobara sporting other looks, including a tracksuit look. Personality-wise and outfit-wise, Nobara Kugisaki is a very fun character to cosplay. 

4. Megumi Fushiguro – Jujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Megumi is one of the first characters we get introduced to in the series. While he initially comes off as a serious, quiet person, he is actually quite a likable and emotional person. Fushiguro is a grade 2 sorcerer and is able to keep his head during intense battles. He is also quite good at calculating his own limits and would not push himself unless the situation is extremely dire. Megumi does not like getting attached to people but does not disregard them either. This was shown when he asked Satoru to protect Itadori even after the latter had consumed one of the twenty fingers of Sukuna. 

When it comes to his appearance, Fushiguro is a handsome young man with spiky black hair and dark blue eyes. Due to the spikiness of his hair, he has a nickname that means “sea-urchin.” 

To nail Fushiguro’s outfit, you will need to get the hair right. The next step is the uniform. While Fushiguro also wears casual clothing, he is mostly seen in his school uniform consisting of bluish-black pants and a jacket of the same color. He also wears brown shoes like Nobara. His pants are slightly short in length, he also wears black socks. During training, he sports a more agility-based tracksuit. 

5. Ryomen Sukuna – Jujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Ryomen Sukuna is yet another recurring character in the series. His past appearance is described as a demon with four arms and two faces; however, he was a human jujutsu sorcerer at some point. Currently, he closely resembles his human vessel, Itadori Yuuji. While Itadori already has a rather muscular physique, like Sukuna, his body is even more toned with black curse markings all around. 

In Itadori’s body, Sukuna does not have four arms. However, he does have an extra pair of eyes. When he is dormant in Itadori, he sometimes makes a mouth appear on the side of his face when he wishes to speak. 

Sukuna is extremely powerful to the point that he can walk, talk and fight, even when Itadori’s body is almost dead. Inside Itadori’s mind, we see Sukuna donning a white kimono as well as a black scarf and traditional shoes. For his cosplay, you will need to go with the same hairstyle as Itadori’s. The most important point of his cosplay is the black stripes and markings on his torso. 

6. Maki ZeninJujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Maki is one of the supporting characters who makes her first appearance in the 5th episode of Jujutsu Kaisen. She is a second-year student at Tokyo Jujutsu high, making her Fushiguro and Itadori’s senior. Unlike what is expected of her clan, Maki was born without Jujutsu powers. This led to her being ridiculed by her own people. To prove her clan wrong, Maki wants to become very strong jujutsu while also serving as a role model for her juniors. She has a tall stature and an athletic build. Maki also wears glasses and keeps her hair tied up in a ponytail. 

So if you like the slightly nerdy look along with good athletics, Maki is a character you should cosplay. While her most popular outfit is her uniform, she is also seen wearing a yukata and other simpler clothing. 

7. Mai ZeninJujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Mai is yet another character in Jujutsu kaizen with beauty, brawns, and brain. As she is the younger twin of Maki Zenin, she closely resembles her sister. However, their personalities are quite different. Unlike Maki, Mai has shorter hair that just reaches her ears. She also does not wear glasses. At school, she wears her regular uniform. She sports a sleeveless look however, on training days, she wears a long sleeve tracksuit. 

Mai is a skilled fighter, and although she is close to her friends, she isn’t openly friendly to everyone. She often appears crude and brutally honest at times. Mai is also seen carrying a piston with her. If you are going for the badass senior vibe, you can definitely consider Mai for a jujutsu kaizen cosplay. 

8. Geto SuguruJujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Geto Suguru is an excellent antagonist. He is polite, cunning, creative, and strong. He is a curse-user much like Gojou sensei; however, the big difference between them is the sides they choose. Suguru has great hatred for any non-curse user and views, such people as utterly insignificant. Satoru, however, is someone he is obsessed with. Sugura is a tall man with long hair tied partially. In the present anime, he is mostly seen wearing Buddhist robes.

Underneath those, wears traditional bluish-black robes and zori sandals with white socks. Popular cosplayers from all over the world have put their best foot forward with their take on the curse-user’s cosplay. You can try that too! Check out the cosplay section for recommendations and ideas. 

9. Utahime IoriJujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

Utahime is yet another popular character in the show. She is a student supervisor at Kyoto Jujutsu high. In fact, the Gojohime/GoUta ship consists of her and Gojou, as the two make a wonderful bickering couple. Sometimes dressed as a Priestess, Utahime is one unbothered person who can be ticked off by one person alone. Gojou Satoru. She is a beautiful woman who is three years his senior. Overall, she is a calm, composed person, sometimes appearing bored. 

If you love Utahime, then you will enjoy her cosplay too. It features her simple hairstyle, the scar on her face, and a priestess kimono. 

10. Kento NanamiJujutsu Kaisen Cosplay

The list of Jujutsu characters is incomplete if we do not include the level-headed, minding-his-own business Nanami. Kento Nanami is a serious individual and one of the strong jujutsu curse users. He is one of the few characters dressed quite differently than the rest. We usually see him in a suit, patterned tie, and iconic glasses. 

He sometimes works alongside Gojo even if their personalities are the polar opposite of each other. One of Gojo’s favorite activities is to poke fun at him whenever possible. When it comes to Nanami’s appearance, his face and jaw are quite defined, giving him a rather stern look. 

Other than the above ten characters, you can also cosplay as many other popular anime characters like Inumaki Toge and Mahito.
