The Nebula costume comes from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. She is portrayed by the actress Karen Gillan.

Nebula is the daughter of the sinister villain Thanos. Her sister is Gamora. Throughout her life, Nebula has believed that Gamora is her favorite sister.

When they were small, the two were pitted against one another in combat. Every time Nebula lost to Gamora, Thanos would replace a part of her body with a metallic piece.

This gives Nebula quite the chip on her shoulder and leaves her motivated by revenge in almost everything she does. Even when she joins the good guys, she is still doing so to get access to her father, Thanos, so she can exact revenge.

Nebula is very cynical and bitter. She does not show much emotion outside of her anger. Nebula is a loner who does not get along well with others.

  1. Nebula Costume
  2. Bald Cap
  3. Silver Body Paint
  4. Face and Body Paint (Sky, Teal, Light Blue, Purple)
  5. Star Wars Lightsaber
  6. Black Boots

DIY Nebula Costume Guide

The costume that Nebula wears consists of a wine-purple sleeveless outfit. You can buy one premade or get a simple purple body suit and strap a leather harness over it.

She has blue skin, so to replicate this, you will need a blue body suit to wear beneath that one. On your feet, you can wear a pair of purple boots to match her outfit.

Nebula fights with two stakes, so you can get wooden stakes to carry around with you to show this.

Finally, you’ll need some silver and purple face paint to create her intricate skin color. You can also use this to make one of your arms look like metal.

About Nebula
