Embodying Motoko Kusanagi

Major Motoko Kusanagi lives in a full-body prosthesis after an accident during her childhood. The only truly human parts left in her are her brain and spinal cord. She is both physically powerful and extremely intelligent, serving as the field commander of Public Security Section 9.
Despite her cybernetic enhancements, don’t let her appearance fool you! She’s not one to let people walk all over her. Her unique outfit requires confidence to cosplay. While she might be a bit of a loner in the series, that doesn’t mean you have to be. Team up with your friends and dress up as your favorite anime characters from popular shows.

If you’re heading to a convention or a cosplay event as a group, Kusanagi would be in good company with characters like Daisuke Aramaki or Batao from Ghost in the Shell, or even Sailor Moon from the eponymous series. Check out our featured pictures for more style ideas.
