Yui from Sword Art Online

Yui (voiced by Ito Kanae and Stephanie Sheh) a supporting character in the anime series Sword Art Online. An A.I. designed to help monitor the mental health of users, Yui is adopted by Kirito and Asuna when they mistake her for a child-aged player lost in the game.  Yui has two primary costumes, a simple white dress with a bow around the middle, and a more complicated pixie-inspired outfit when she is fulfilling navigation duties in ALfheim Online.  Purchasing the pink cosplay dress can be pricey, and doesn’t come with the necessary accessories, so altering a medieval-inspired dress with an asymmetrical hem by removing the sleeves can help evoke the same look, if you’re willing to be a little crafty.  Similarly, stretchy pink bracelets can be worn to mimic Yui’s anklets.

Head Pixie from The Fairly OddParents

Some might know him best as Ferris Bueller’s unimpressed teacher. But a whole generation of children grew up knowing Ben Stein as the voice of the ever unimpressed Head Pixie. If it’s not dull, bland, and boring, he isn’t happy. And when that happens it’s bad news for Wanda, Cosmo, and Timmy.

H.P.’s look is pretty easy to get (and, as an added bonus, full of pieces that can be used for daily wear or with other cosplays) with the exception of his hat. Because it’s so unique you will have to DIY it. Cut a two grey stars out of softer, lightweight felt. Glue them together with a thin, piece of clear plastic between them. Then take flexible grey foam and shape it into a cone large enough to wear as a hat. Glue the edges down with hot glue, making sure to leave a small hole at the top of the cone. Stick the end of the plastic rod into the hole and adjust the height of the star over the hat. Trim off most of the excess inside but leave a small amount to anchor with hot glue. Fill the remaining space around the plastic rod with hot glue. Finally, take a dark grey marker and draw on the swirls around the bottom of his cap.

Once you’ve got the hat, the rest of his costume is fairly straight forward. Fake eyebrows give you something close to the white bars that H.P. sports while small wings, fake glasses and white hair spray take care of your hair and accessories. Finish off the look with a grey suit, white button down, black tie, and black shoes. If you want purple contacts to really go all-in, make sure that you get them through an eye doctor. If they’re not properly fitted to your eye shape, cosmetic contacts can do serious damage.

Flora from Winx Club

Stella (voiced by Alejandra Reynoso in the English versions and Ilaria Latini in the Italian versions) is one of the six core members of the Winx club. She is also the Fairy of Nature and the princess of her home planet Linphea. Her boyfriend Helia works along side the significant others of several other Winx Club members and is a student at the Red Fountain school.

Her human form is her most popular. She has long light brown hair with blonde streaks, a green crop top, a pink skirt, green bracelets, and pink strappy heels that all correspond with her place as the Fairy of Nature. Her heels are a bit unique in that they have a flower on the outside of each ankle. This look can be achieved with the peony hair clips pictured above. Simply clip them to the ankle strap of your heels and you’ve got the same look! Just be sure and buy two so you have one for each ankle.

When she learns something new, she exclaims: “That’s so magical!”

Musa from Winx Club

Musa from Winx Club

Musa (voiced by Romi Dames in the English versions and Gemma Donati in the Italian versions) is the Fairy of Music and one of the six core members of the Winx Club. She is also the princess of her home planet Melody. Her boyfriend Riven is a combat student at the Red Fountain school alongside the boyfriends and fiances of several other Winx Club members.

Musa is unique in a few ways. She is one of two fairies to embrace technology as part of her magic. She also has short hair a solid red dress instead of the long hair and two-piece outfits that most of the Winx Club wears. Her color is red, so a red dress and red boots make up her costume. Purple headphones and a purple and around her upper arm – which can be recreated with a ribbon – are her contrasting accessories. Her wings are also blue instead of white and more sleek that most of the other fairies’.

Aisha from Winx Club

Aisha (voiced by Keke Palmer in the English versions and Laura Lenghi in the Italian versions) is one of the six core members of the Winx club. She is also the Fairy of Waves and the princess of her home planet Andros. Aisha is loyal, clever, and a fantastic friend the rest of the Winx club.

To cosplay as Aisha you will want to lean into the color green. Her most common form as a fairy is white wings, a green halter top, green skirt, and green boots. She has long brown hair that she wears down. Like the rest of the Winx club she has countless outfits which is unusual for most animated shows. But this outfit is one of her most iconic fairy look.

For her more human look you can go with the same wig then change the glittering green of her fairy form for a pink spaghetti strap top, green denim skirt, white leg warmers, and green boots.

Fairy Lucinda from Ella Enchanted

Lucinda is a stylish, spunky fairy played by Vivica A. Fox. Lucinda is not the most popular fairy in the land. She’s known in Ella Enchanted for bestowing the worst gifts. Her lacking gift choices are rooted in good nature, but not thought through. That’s how poor Ella was given the gift of obedience.
