Nausicaä from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Nausicaä (voiced by Sumi Shimamoto and Alison Lohman) is the titular protagonist of the Studio Ghibli film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.  Nausicaä is a princess who finds herself embroiled in war in a world of ecological disaster alongside Asbel.  Nausicaä has short red hair and wears primarily blue.  To recreate her look, you’ll need beige pants, brown shoes, blue leg warmers and gloves, and red teardrop earrings.  You can purchase a cosplay set that includes a hat, jacket, and belt, or assemble your own with pieces that look similar.  Her filtration mask can be difficult to find unless you are willing to pay a lot or make your own from scratch.  However, you can craft a reasonable facsimile with a respirator mask, dog ear headband, paint, and glue.  Cut the ears from the headband and glue them to the sides of the mask, using the wire inside to shape them accordingly.  Then, spray paint the entire thing brown.  Just make sure you leave yourself enough time for it to dry!
