As someone who was born in the 90’s but whose childhood was in the 2000’s I fondly remember watching Teen Titans on Cartoon Network back in the day. The CN show was based on the comic series by Marv Wolfman and George Pérezfrom from the 80’s.
The show centers around five different superheros with different super powers and backgrounds who fight criminals and other threats to their city.
Eventhough it was planned for four seasons it gained so much praise from audiences around the world that Cartoon Network decided to renew it for a fifth and final season. What made it so different to other series on the network was how it dealt with difficult real world issues.
Raven is one of the five superheros who is half demon and half human with powers of teleportation and soul travel. Today we’ll be looking at you can create a Raven Teen Titans Costume from scratch for conventions aswell as Halloween.
Raven Teen Titans Wig
To make everything flow in a logical order we’ll start at the top and work our way down the outfit. The first item you’ll need is a wig. Raven has short bright purple hair that you can replicate with a wig such as the one above or you could dye your natural hair and cut it to the right length.
Raven Teen Titans Cloak
The next item on our list is a purple satin cloak to match with the hair color. I’ve picked out an appropriate cloak above that would work well for this character, alternatively you could fashion a cloak out of a satin sheet you already own if you prefer DIY. Then wear a black turtleneck style leotard underneath the cloak to complete her look.
Raven Teen Titans Gemstones
Next you’ll need some gemstones. A red gemstone necklace and a red triangular gem to stick in the center of your forehead. To finish the whole thing off you could wear a pair of grey leggings or just go without, and a pair of purple boots. If you chose add a little makeup in the form of grey face paint and purple lipstick.
I predict this will be a very popular costume around cosplay seasons and Halloween and would also make the perfect group cosplay idea. Beast Boy and Raven would make the ideal couples costume or get a group of five friends together or even your family members with each person dressed as a different Teen Titans characters.
