How to Get Anime Cosplay Costumes

To many cosplayers, the most important thing is not how they look, but the manufacture of cosplay costumes. Generally there are four ways to get the cosplay costumes: get it from the local store, make it by yourself, and find a tailor to make it as your size or order it from the internet.

 

1 get it from the local store.

In Japan, you can get the right costume you want, for the anime cosplay is developed from Japan. Some of the Japan local store even has the officially recognized. Some of the store is not officially recognized but has the same quality that you get from the official one. As for most of the countries of the world, there is not even a store specializing in cosplay costumes. So if you or friends travel to Japan, you can ask them to bring a costume along with his trip. 

 

2 DIY

Actually the greatest pleasure to cosplay is made you own costumes and props. Of course, if you really want to make it by yourself, you must be a tailor, what’s more there should be a sewing machine at home. Generally speaking, a person who made costumes needs one month to finish the costume making, from materials selection, the style design and also the props. During this period you should not only go into the techniques and tools, but also the mental concentration. We surely enjoy the fun of making a costume, but to some one it is not a easy thing to do.

 

3 Make-to-measures.  

Tailor-made is surely a good choice if you do not have a sewing machine or you do not have that much time. Remember when you ask a tailor to made you own costume, you should make sure that he had made it before and he know what cosplay is, for the cosplay is not so popular in some place. Made to measure is the best way to get the right size for you, but some time the tailor could not make the right one in you mind. What’s more, the material is too many and expensive to choose. 

 

4 Order it from the internet

With the development of the internet, there are more and more on line shops. They get the products directly from the factory and sell it to the costumers, really in good type and quality. You really could save lots of money and enjoy yourself. Such as the China wholesale company. There are many t on-line foreign trade companies like milanoo.com cosplaymagic.com, mooncostumes.com. They get the costumes directly from the factory and sell it to the foreign customers. What we should get into mind is that they have the professional tailor and the costumes are really in a low price and fine quality. Sometime they will have a promotion and you can the cheap cosplay costumes.

 

In fact, it really cost lots money for a really costume, especially from the franchise house. If you had some one made it for you, you surely can save lots of money but most of the time you can not get the one you like, surely there are seldom tailor could make the cosplay costume. So order from the internet maybe is the best way.

Hi, heyjean, and welcome to the site.

Since this is a Maker site, I think you'll find that most people reading this will go for the DIY option, such as this costume and this costume.

Why not give it a go yourself?  It's probably not as expensive as you think, and far more satisfying than clicking a few buttons on the computer.
