Jinx Cosplay: How To, Ideas & Where to Buy

Jinx is a main character from the League of Legends game and the well-known series on Netflix. She’s portrayed as a manic and impulsive criminal, although her back story is far more complicated than that. She actually has many layers!

Jinx is a fantastic choice for cosplay because her look is so striking and there’s so much creative flare you can add. We’ll guide you through everything you need to know to put together an amazing Jinx cosplay.

How to Make Your Costume

01

Crop Top

The first thing you’ll need is the Jinx crop top. There are two ways you can do this - you can go for the black leather-looking crop top with a fabric cross. The cross is threaded through four metal eyelets. Alternatively, some people choose the black and pink leather halter top look.

Both looks are impressive and give off that badass Jinx vibe. Some people even choose an interpretation of their own - the most important thing is that the top is cropped.

You can buy the crop top as part of a ready-made Jinx costume, or you can buy a plain tank top and customize it yourself if you’re handy with crafts.

  • Choose either a black leather crop top with a cross on it, or a pink and black halter type top.
  • Buy one ready-made or use a plain crop top and add details yourself.

02

 Trousers

The classic Jinx trousers are striped purple or pink which are somewhat distressed -  you have to look like you’ve been in battle, of course. They end either just below or just above the knee. If you choose to do the pink and black halter top, you may want the bottoms to be striped shorts and add fishnets to the lower leg to complete the look.

You can buy the striped bottoms ready-made. Or you can simply use fabric paint or duct tape on jeans or leggings.

  • Choose either purple or pink striped bottoms.
  • Buy them ready-made or choose trousers you already have and decorate them with craft supplies to add the colors.

03

Leather Accessories

Now that you’ve got the basics of the outfit, you need to add the main accessories. The most important ones are the belt and long gloves.

The belt is black and looks like leather. It’s a tactical belt, and in some depictions has armor-like bullets attached to it. In some versions of Jinx, the belt has multiple parts that cross over one another. This is a great opportunity to add your own interpretation and make a creative Jinx-inspired belt. Alternatively, you can buy one ready-made for a Jinx cosplay.

Next are the gloves - they’re long and extend up past her elbow. They’re also fingerless in most depictions, although in some one glove has fingers and the other doesn’t. Depending on which version of Jinx you choose, the gloves may be black and leather-looking, black and pink, or striped purple with some black leather parts. This is another great opportunity to get creative and add your own twist to the gloves.

  • Add a leather tactical belt around the waist.
  • Source or make long fingerless gloves in your chosen Jinx colors.

04

Boots

Jinx always wears combat boots with a sort of punk aesthetic. They are ankle boots and typically go up her calf a little way. They fold over at the top and look well-worn. Her boots have pink or purple laces.

You can buy Jinx boots, although this can be pricey as they don’t tend to come with ready-made Jinx costumes. Instead, you can buy cheap combat boots or use black combat boots you already own and add colored laces and any other details you like.

  • Find black combat boots that are roughly ankle height.
  • Add in colored laces and other details.

05

Wig

Of course, we couldn’t cosplay Jinx without her absolutely iconic hair. The character has bright blue hair that goes down to her lower legs! It’s always styled in two braids with a loose bit of shorter hair at the front which sweeps over and frames her face.

To pull off the Jinx look, you’ll need a bright blue wig. You can buy ones that are already styled, or buy one and style it yourself to match Jinx’s hair. Make sure the wig is well attached so you can flip those blue braids around and get some amazing photos!

  • Find a blue wig in as long a length as possible.
  • Style it into long braids with some face-framing shorter hairs left out.

06

Weapon

You can’t be Jinx without one of her weapons. She has a few choices, most of which she invented herself! You can pick from her ‘fishbone’ rocket launcher, machine gun, pistol, or a chomper bomb! Or, you can do two or more if you truly want to go all out.

There are lots of places where you can buy one of Jinx’s ready-made weapons, or if you’re skilled with crafts you can try to make one yourself!

  • Choose one or more of Jinx’s weapons.
  • Source one or try your hand at making one yourself!

07

 Fine Details

There are lots of little details you can add to enhance your Jinx cosplay. It’s up to you how many you want to include.

The choker is possibly the most important detail - Jinx almost always wears it. It’s black leather and usually has a few layers.

The character also has blue, artistic, cloud-like tattoos on one of her arms and around her stomach area. You can add these with temporary tattoos, draw them on with body paint, or use eyeliner or eyeshadow. This detail is iconic and will complete the costume nicely.

You can also use makeup to mimic the freckles Jinx has across her face. If you want to go all out, you could wear light pink contacts to match Jinx’s eyes after the shimmer, or you could stick to her original blue.

In some versions of Jinx, she has a crossed bandaid on one of her knees. This is an easy detail to add with a regular bandaid, or you could draw it on with body paint.

  • Consider which details you want to add.
  • You can include a choker, tattoos, makeup, colored contacts, or a bandaid.
