Attack on Titan Cosplay Costumes of 2021

Discover your inner Attack on Titan

That show about fighting giants that are attacking a walled city and eating its citizens has led to one of the most popular cosplays in the past decade. Attack on Titan doesn’t only have a compelling story, but it also features some great costumes that have since become a staple in anime conventions. Let’s take a look at what it takes to cosplay as a character from Attack on Titan.

Who is Attack on Titan?

Attack on Titan, or Shingeki no Kyojin in Japanese, is set in a world where humanity lives inside walled cities that protect them from man-eating humanoid giants known as Titans. If ever those Titans get past the walls, it’s up to the Eldian military to protect the civilians. The Survey Corps is tasked in fighting and studying the Titans in the hopes of finding out where they come from and how to get rid of this seemingly insurmountable threat once and for all.

The story follows Eren Yeager, who joins the Survey Corps after witnessing his mother getting eaten by a Titan. He vows to never be put in a similar situation of helplessness again and kill every last Titan out there. However, along his journey, he discovers something unexpected about the Titans, which puts into question everything he has ever known and forces him to make a decision that will dictate his true purpose.

The manga ran from September 2009 to April 2021, totalling 34 volumes. It has since become one of the most popular and well-known series in manga and anime.

How to Look Like Attack on Titan

The most distinct feature of Attack on Titan cosplay are the fairly consistent looks of both sides. The Survey Corps has the uniform, while the Titans all look like they’re muscular giant humans with all of their skin flayed.

There’s also the size disparity as the Titans are meant to dwarf the humans, but that may be hard to accurately show through cosplay unless the Titan cosplayer is really tall or certain camera angles are used to show it.


Attack on Titan Cosplay Variations

The main decision with Attack on Titan cosplay is choosing whether you want to be part of the Survey Corp or a Titan. If you choose to be Eren Yeager, then you have a choice of both. Whichever Attack on Titan costume you choose, the important part is that you’re able to distinguish between the two.

Survey Corps

The Survey Corps uniform is composed of a light undershirt and light pants (both usually white), which is wrapped by the harnesses for the vertical maneuvering equipment, which is all attached to a dark brown belt and wrap around the waist.

Over that is a brown long-sleeved short jacket with the emblem of the Survey Corps on the left side of the chest and back. Knee-high dark brown leather boots are worn on the feet. They also wear a dark green poncho over whenever the Survey Corps personnel are travelling.

Major characters also wear certain things to distinguish themselves. For instance, Eren Yeager wears a light tan v-neck undershirt instead of the off-white button shirt everyone else wears. Levi Ackerman wears a white ascot around his neck. Mikasa Ackerman wears the dark red scarf she got from Eren around her neck.


As seen in the anime, the Titans look like gigantic naked humans. Different types of Titans look different, like how Pure Titans look deformed and disproportional, while those that belong to one of the Nine Titans may have no skin and have exposed teeth, pointed ears, fur, or so on.
