Are you a fan of Fairy Tail? Want to cosplay a strong female character from the series? Look no further than Erza Scarlet, the queen of armor. She’s a warrior with multiple looks, and we shall look at some of them right here.
Who is Erza Scarlet?
Erza Scarlet is an S-class mage in the Fairy Tail Guild, serving as a member of Team Natsu. She was also the guild’s 7th Guild Master while Makarov Dreyar was absent. Her origins are as fantastic as the many armors she wears in battle, if not more.
As the daughter of Irene Belserion and a foreign general, she had been conceived four hundred years prior to the start of the story, but was kept from growing in the womb through magical means. Basically, Irene lived for several hundred years as a dragon and only gave birth to Erza when she was transformed back to human form by the dark mage Zeref.
She was seemingly abandoned in the back alleys of Rosemary Village, where she grew up before being taken by a cult of Zeref. After much struggle to escape slavery by the cult, she washed up on the shores of Fiore, where she made her way to join the Fairy Tail Guild.
Her whole life is the Fairy Tail Guild, especially after Makarov took her under his wing, so she’s the type who watches over her guild mates. She tends to be quite strict, reprimanding other guild members for their occasional bad habits and behavior. In turn, she is both respected and feared, with the majority of them unwilling to incur her wrath.
Due to this somewhat authoritarian streak and her traumatic childhood, she tends to be socially awkward and finds it hard to reveal her feelings. Despite that, she does have a great sense of honor, justice, and pride in being a member of the Fairy Tail Guild.
How to Look Like Erza Scarlet
Erza Scarlet’s most distinct physical feature is her waist-length scarlet hair (hence her surname) and sharp brown eyes. She lost her right eye as a child, but it was then replaced with an artificial one that was created by Porlyusica. While she can see out of her right eye again, it does tend to be covered by her bangs.
She has a slender and voluptuous figure, which has been described by Lucy Heartfilia as “amazing,” likely enhanced by her combat training. Her guild mark is located on the middle of her left upper arm.
While many of her guild mates find her intimidating and standoffish, she’s actually a kind and warm individual deep inside.

Heart Kreuz Armor
This is Erza’s standard armor, which she wears most of the time. It’s composed of a breast plate with a modified Heart Kreuz logo in the middle, pauldrons, bracers and gauntlets over elbow pads, blue skirt, and blue-gray knee-high boots.
She also carries her sword, which is perhaps the only part of her outfit that doesn’t change, which is wielded and controlled with her sword magic.
Heaven’s Wheel Armor
Whenever she needs more mobility and offensive capabilities, she requips this magnificent-looking armor. Sharp-looking plate armor with a large metal flower covers her chest, while a large billowing skirt with metal plating on top covers her legs.
Two pairs of large metal wings made of blades appear on her back, and metal greaves and boots with wings cover her feet and lower legs. It’s all topped off with a winged headpiece. This armor grants Erza the power of flight and lots of swords.
Black Wing Armor
This armor is all dark blue with silver-blue trimming. Long pauldrons, each with a large cross, cover her upper arms while bracers and gloves with spiral patterns cover her forearms and hands.
Large tassets with crosses cover the sides of her hips and her backside, while a pair of cuisse, greaves, and boots cover her legs and feet. But the party piece of this parmor is the pair of large draconic wings sprouting from her back.
Clear Heart Clothing
This is basically just Erza fighting without any armor. She wears only chest bindings and hakama with flame patterns on the bottom. She also wields two single-edged swords while in this mode. Since her armor symbolizes the closing of her heart, this clothing represents her breaking down the walls and laying herself bare in battle.
Erza dons this outfit in battles that demand her absolute focus, maximizing offensive power while sacrificing defense.
