Join the Order of the Phoenix and battle the Dark Lord with this striking Nymphadora cosplay

How To Dress Like Nymphadora

As a member of the Order of the Phoenix, Nymphadora Tonks is committed to vanquishing the Dark Lord Voldemort once and for all. A noble mission, especially considering she traces her bloodline back to the infamous Black wizarding family.

The Nymphadora cosplay is hands down one of our favorites from our Harry Potter for Women Costume Collection. Infused with the attitude of a punk rocker crossed with a powerful Metamophmagus, what’s not to love?


Nymphadora Tonks (Harry Potter) DIY costume guide

1. COAT – The focal point of this Nymphadora Tonks costume is her distinctive coat. Consider ordering a size-up for that more baggy fit like the character.

2. BOOTS – Next, add a pair of chunky black boots or similar footwear.

3. JEANS – Could Nymphadora bring back the skinny-fit ripped jeans look like? We sure hope so!

4. WIG – Another amazing part of Nymphadora’s character design is her punk purple hair. We recommend either purchasing a quality wig or using some temporary hair dye if you’re feeling brave.

5. TOP – Add a red and black striped top under your full-length coat.

6. GLOVES – Some fingerless gloves really add to the punk rocker aesthetic of Nymadora’s costume.

7. NECKLACE – Ass does the black choker that Tonks wears!

8. WAND – Nymphadora has a simple though striking wand and an exact replica is the perfect compliment to this cosplay.

9. BELLS – Optional extra but Nymphadora’s choker features three rusted bells. You will need these and some string to attach them if you want to make something similar.

10. BUTTONS – Finally, if you want to make your coat look even more like Nymphadora’s you might want to sew on some silver clasp buttons.



Nymphodora Tonks is a Metamophmagus, meaning she has the ability to alter her appearance at will. Although a very powerful wizard, she is also known for her clumsiness when it comes to controlling her powers.

As a member of the Order of the Phoenix, Tonks is committed to fighting against Lord Voldemort and his legion of Death Eaters. It is through the Order that she meets and falls in love with Remus Lupin, a werewolf and fellow member of the Order.

Together, Tonks and Lupin fight valiantly against Lord Voldemort during The Battle of Hogwarts. Tragically, both of them ultimately lose their lives during the battle, leaving a young orphaned son – Teddy – to be raised by surviving family members.
