Roy Batty from Blade Runner

Roy Batty from Blade Runner

Roy Batty (played by Rutger Hauer) is a replicant - an android - built for the sole purpose of fighting in places seen as too dangerous for humans, much like Pris, Zhora, and Rachael. Unfortunately for him, soldier replicants only have a four-year lifespan. It is this injustice that brings him back to Earth and pushes him to try any means necessary to extend his life. He's one of sci-fi's most enduring antiheroes and is almost more a fan favorite than the the movie's hero, Deckard.

Roy's costume is simple but pulling it off takes a little bit of work. There are two iconic parts to his look: his white blonde hair and the dove her carries. You can either bleach your hair or opt for a wig. And there are many prop doves on Amazon, one of which is listed above.

For the rest of his costume you will need a leather trench coat, grey t-shirt, black tactical pants, and  - as odd as it might sound - a pair of black and white sneakers. If you want to try and get some of the detailing on Roy's coat you can use leather tubing and a hot glue gun to try and recreate the specific style.

It's a simple costume with parts that can be repurposed for other cosplays. But it's still a costume with an impact and a shelf life of a lot more than four years!
