This heroine of sword and sorcery fights for the weak and holds the men at bay. You can join them in your very one Red Sonja closet cosplay!

Though the sword and sorcery genre is mostly dominated by brave warrior men and damsels in distress, there’s one warrior who stands apart. Red Sonja is a woman set on a rescue mission that is the first domino in a series of much larger mishaps. We’re channeling her daring, cool, and collected demeanor with a new closet cosplay!

Red Sonja - Rotten Tomatoes

While the Red Sonja comic look is far more commonly seen, I thought it would be fun to go with the vintage movie look instead. It’s definitely a more dated fantastical piece, but it’s still fun and enjoyable. Snag your favorite man candy and sword him up. It’s time to turn into the warrior woman herself, Red Sonja!

Red Sonja Closet Cosplay: The Bodice

If you’re in the market for a classy, minimalistic swimsuit that can double as a cosplay base? This is a PERFECT suit for you. She’ll make a great Red Sonja base layer, or wear it out with jeans and heels for a night on the town!


Feeling a bit more risque with your Red Sonja cosplay? Go for a lower neckline and some gorgeous peekaboo lacing. This will fit snug so it’s a perfect base for whatever skirting you wear.

Red Sonja Closet Cosplay: The Skirt

Ah, yes. A cliche gladiator skirt by any other name is still a ridiculous form of “armor”, but hey! We don’t make the rules; we just show you where to pick them up for yourself. You’re an adult- you know what you’re doing.

Red Sonja Closet Cosplay: The Boots

There’s no boot more perfect for tromping silently through the woods (or a barroom crowd) than a moccasin. Slip into these, and you’ll have the jump on any enemy. Plus, they’re incredibly comfortable!


Red Sonja Closet Cosplay: The Bracers

No swordswoman worth her salt can go into battle without supportive (and fashionable) bracers to protect her. (Pay NO ATTENTION to the unprotected EVERYTHING ELSE on her body)… Slap these bad boys on, and you’re ready for blocking!

Conan the Barbarian BlueRay:

If you’re a fan of sword and sorcery, or if you’re intrigued by what you’ve seen here, check the movie out for yourself! It’s well worth the watch.

Bottoms Up, warriors! We’re hoping you click the links above and find some groovy items to fill your own war chest. Any time you do, a tiny piece of Amazon’s cut comes back to us! Don’t make us come and raid it!
