Leela from Futurama is such an easy but fun costume. Leela is a fictional character from the animated television series Futurama. She is a beautiful alien space captain, pilot, and head of all aviation services on the board the Planet Express Ship, including Fry, her human love interest who came from the year 2000 into the future by mistake. Leela is a character who proves that a girl can be pretty and intelligent at the same time. She’s also known for having a witty, sarcastic sense of humor and famous for her fighting skills. Her one big eye can weird some people out, but she has a soft side to her personality too and is a great friend once people get to know her.
How To Dress Like Leela From Futurama?
Making a Leela costume might seem a bit tricky because of her single eye since we have two eyes, but the right mask can help.
- Use a dome shape protective white mask and cut a triangle where the nose goes so that it lays on your face better.
- Outline half of the mask on a tan felt paper, cut that out and it should fit on the upper half mask.
- Take a black pipe cleaner and cut it to its desired length for the eyelashes. Curl it and use hot glue to attach it.
- Outline and cut another black felt paper for the eyeliner and paste it above where you attached the eyelashes.
- And then cut a circle black felt paper for the pupil.
- Use foam cup for the arm band.
- Just remove the bottom part of the cup.
- Repaint the cup to the color of your choice but I prefer to paint it blue
