Become the maternal heart of the Malfoy family with our step-by-step Narcissa cosplay guide

How To Dress Like Narcissa

As the matriarch of the Malfoy family, part of the infamous Black family, and a prominent Death Eater, you would think Narcissa Malfoy would be a true villain in every sense of the word, much like her sister Bellatrix Lestrange. However, Narcissa is at least partly redeemed by her fierce maternal nature and drive to keep her family from harm at all costs.

Part of our Harry Potter Costumes for Women Collection, Narcissa is an amazing cosplay option for any Harry Potter fan looking for a powerful and striking outfit. From her striking cloak to her stunning, we show you everything you need to make the best Narcissa costume possible.


Narcissa Malfoy (Harry Potter) DIY costume guide

1. ROBE Narcissa wears a full-length ornate black robe. Look out for “steampunk” robes for a very similar aesthetic. Note: if purchasing our recommended robe, a number of reviewers have commented that it runs a little smaller than expected. Consider ordering a size up.

2. SHOESAny black flats or low heels will work perfectly. Simply choose an understated pair that you are comfortable wearing.

3. DRESS Under her robe, Narcissa wears a full-length evening or cocktail dress. A champagne-colored dress is a great choice as it should have that same gloss finish and also a more flowy fit below the waist.

4. RINGAt several points throughout Harry Potter, Narcissa can be spotted wearing a large skull ring on her right ring finger, a subtle allusion to her role as a Death Eater.

5. WAND This is certainly one of the more unique wands in the Harry Potter world with an ornate hilt and metal decals. Narcissa later gifts her wand to her son, Draco, who in turn loses it in the Room of Requirement where it is destroyed forever by Fiendfyre.

6. HAIROne of the stand-out pieces of this cosplay is Narcissa’s unique blonde and black hairstyle. If you don’t want to dye your hair, there are plenty of similarly styled wigs that would be more than suitable.



Narcissa Malfoy is the wife of Lucius Malfoy and mother of Draco Malfoy. She comes from the Black family, known for their staunch support of pure-blood wizardry and connections to dark magic. Other familial connections include her sisters Bellatrix Lestrange and Andromeda Tonks (mother of Nymphadora Tonks).

She is portrayed as a complex character whose devotion to the Dark Lord is superseded only by her protective love for Draco and her family.

When Voldermort asks for confirmation of Harry’s death, Narcissa falsely (likely to protect her family) confirms his demise. This sets into action a series of events that ultimately lead to the Dark Lord’s defeat.
