Cosplay Ideas

Cosplay can be great fun! Costume play is simply dressing up as a character or idea. Popular places to cosplay are conventions such as Comicon or Katsucon, or parties.

Unless you know you can make a truly exceptional costume, it is best to think of an idea that hasn't been overdone, or it won't be memorable.

This article features a list of awesome cosplay ideas, including cheap cosplay ideas and easy cosplay ideas. Either use one of the ideas of this list, or skim through it for inspiration... one of the ideas may make you think of an idea even better suited to you.

What sort of character should I dress up as?

Anything you want! Lots of people get inspiration from anime, manga, TV shows, movies, comic books and video games. As you can see, there's a lot of variety!

Some people try and choose a character that looks like them (for example if they have red hair they'll choose a character with red hair), but you don't have to! Just go as a character you like!

Where can I get my costume?

You can buy it, or if you're very talented you can make it yourself! If the thought of sewing fills your heart with dread, check places like eBay, Amazon or Craigslist for some good cheap cosplay costumes.

Some people's cosplaying costumes can be very detailed, and include wigs and contact lenses.
