View Full Version : Which female anime characters have purple hair?

04-01-2008, 03:21 PM
I have a purple wig I got for my Revy from Black Lagoon costume and I want to wear it again but with a different costume. It has bangs and it goes down to the middle of my back, maybe even a little higher up.

Does anybody know of any anime characters that have dark purple hair?

Yoruichi from Bleach and Anthy from Utena are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Tsukasa and Kagami Hiiragi from Lucky Star have purple hair too~ Though...not DARK purple. D8

Ran-Fa from Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch and Karen (normal/human ver.) from the same series have purple hair.

Sakura Matou and Rider from Fate/Stay Night too~ *-*

And Zakuro from Tokyo Mew Mew.

Well it's not dark purple, but Yuri from Dirty Pair Flash has long purple hair with bangs.

sailor saturn and mars can be considered really dark purple as the highlights in their hair are purple and faye valentine of cowboy bebop has purple hair. motoko kusanagi of ghost in the shell also has purple hair :)

if I remember right, Yellow Dancer from Robotech has purple hair (but he's a guy in drag). Young Neese from Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight has purple hair. you could probably do some generic cosplays (random saiyan, ANBU, etc) if you just want a good excuse to wear it.

ghost in the shell is sooooooooooooooooo under cosplayed
especially her outfits
the designs are awesome

do motoko kusanagi!
the hott major of section 9

I agree she really is under cosplayed but I don't think I could pull off her costume. Maybe if I lost some weight teehee.

I haven't seen Fate Stay Night what is it about? It's so hard to find new animes that aren't so similar... I'm looking for a new one to watch but the ones I've been choosing recently I can't even bare through the first episode.

Cornelia Li Britannia from Code Geass has purple hair.

04-03-2008, 10:40 AM
I'll have to check that out, what's it about?

Kohran Ri from Sakura Wars / Taisen.

When I was at a con two years ago I was just wearing my purple wig. I was too lazy to take it off after I took the costume off which wasn't tailored yet. Anywoo, while I was in the dealers room someone thought I was Revy. I would defiantely suggest that character if you're familiar with the series.
The only thing you would have to do is braid the wig into 2 pigtails.

Here's the character. http://www.sakurawarsdvd.com/images/players/kohran/kohran01.gif
And me cosplaying her for wig comparison, I dunno what style or exact color your wig is so I'll just show you what I used.

Good luck in your search!

Teiria from gundam 00 had dark purple hair, it's a guy but from what he wears you really wouldn't guess.

Anko from Naruto has purplish tinted black hair. It would be pretty dark, but take a look at pictures of her and see if she'd be what you're looking for.

Hi, I just noticed this post while surfing around the net, and thought I'd help out (purple haired characters is one of my favorite designs).

For dark purple(or purpleish) hair (of varying length and tone, depending on the actual wig) there is also:

Nodoka Miyazaki from Negima!
the Zashiki-warashi from xxxHolic
Nagato Yuki from Haruhi
Hinata Hyuuga from Naruto
Rinslet Walker from Black Cat
Aoi Sakuraba and Mayu Miyuki from Ai Yori Aoshi
Karin Maaka from Karin
Misato Katsuragi from Neon Genesis Evangelion
Nerine from Shuffle!
Kyou and Ryou Fujibayashi from Clannad

All I can think of off the top of my hope, hope it helps some!

04-04-2008, 02:27 AM
Well shoot, I think you got just about everyone!

I'd like to second Misato Katsuragi (Evangelion) though, 'cause I'm a huge fan of the series :toothy: Here's some pix:


Good luck finding a character!

04-04-2008, 09:31 AM
She is so cute!! My wig isn't as dark as yours but I think it could work. I'll have to watch the series and see if I like the character or not. She is really cute, I wouldn't mind going as her.


I have always wanted to go as Misato she is one of my favorite characters but I can not find her hat anywhere!!

Thanks that really does help! I'm not familiar with all of them so I'll probably look up images of them.

oh yea, its not a anime, but rose from street fighter has long purple hair

04-04-2008, 10:38 AM
Yaone from Saiyuki! Is so undercosplayed unfortunately, it's an amazing series.

04-04-2008, 12:17 PM

Most welcome, glad I could be of assistance. Nodoka (http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x80/dago2682/nodo2.jpg) is probably one of my favorites, I love her hair, but it would be almost impossible to find a wig that looks like it though. Also, I neglected to mention:

Misa Kakizaki and Yue Ayase from Negima! as well (Yue and Nodoka actually both have alternating blue or purple hair, and swap hair colors from the first to 2nd version of Negima)
Tamaki Kawazoe and Miyako Miyazaki from Bamboo Blade
Kanaru Morimoto from Persona -trinity soul-
Sister Miyako from Kannazuki no Miko

Mao from FullMetal Panic

04-14-2008, 02:45 PM
Man, nobody mentioned Shampoo from Ranma 1/2 yet? I'm shocked.

She requires some styling, but you've got lots of cute outfits to choose from.

04-14-2008, 05:47 PM
Kiyal Bachika from Tegen Toppa Gurren Lagan has purple hair. She has an alternate outfit too, I think. *hasn't watched TTGL*
This site has a lot of characters too~

Kyou Fujibayashi from Clannad

Sakura from Fate/Stay Night

Rider (Fate/Stay Night) also has purple hair but its bangless and goes past her butt. BUT Sakura (her true master) has hair JUST as you described and her outfit is your basic school girl. ^_^

Blair from Soul eater

04-03-2009, 11:53 AM
I've seen Kotoko from Chobits cosplayed with purple hair. :)

06-16-2009, 05:37 PM
Sarah from Shamanic Princess (which I've never seen cosplayed)

12-31-2011, 12:27 AM
