Ella Lopez, played by Aimee Garcia is a young woman of faith, and a curious and quick thinking scientist who never gets deterred by dealing with people on the worst day of their lives. In complete contrast to almost all of the rest of the characters in Lucifer, when picking her clothes Ella likes to fill her wardrobe with joyful colors that reflect her bubbly and kind nature.

She never shies away from bold colors or prints, but it is her love of quirky t-shirts with humorous slogans and animations that an Ella Lopez Lucifer outfit is known for. In all the bright colors and with sayings such as ‘i love science’ and ‘mornings suck’ it is fitting that when she visits Detective Chloe Decker’s daughter, Trixie, they realize they are both wearing the same t-shirt.

Finished with her side swept bangs on the right, softening and framing her face.
