Creating your own Vanya Hargreeves Costume from the hit Umbrella Academy show will be pretty simple and a great option for a group cosplay!

The Character:

Vanya is the odd one out of the group of academy kids as she is portrayed as the “ordinary” one who does not have any supernatural powers like her adoptive siblings. As the show progresses, you see that she is left out of many of the group’s activities, leading to a life of depression and isolation. The only solace she finds is in music, becoming a concert violinist. She meets a man by the name of Leonard, who for the first time in her life, shows her love. This is unfortunately short lived as the truth of his intentions and obsessions reveal themselves.
