Hornet from Hollow Knight

She may look sweet but don’t let looks fool you. She’s a tough opponent that knows how to use her giant needle in a fight. Hornet from Hollow Knight isn’t always an enemy, though. She just has her duties and she’s not about to let anyone get past without a fight.

There are three major parts to a Hornet costume. The first is a mask similar to the shape of her head. For that, you’ll want to go to Etsy. Underneath it you’ll want a hair cap to keep your hair and place and black face paint to use around your eyes and then white face paint anywhere that shows around the mask.

The second important part is her purple cloak. It flares more than most cloaks so you’ll want to wear a purple top and a purple skirt underneath with a crinoline beneath the skirt for added flare. Black gloves, black tights, and black boots round out her outfit,

Finally you’ll want to go back to Etsy for Hornet’s needle. The product linked here is a little over three feet long and is perfect for cosplays of all ages.
