With so many great cosplay opportunities around, serious anime fans love to get creative with their cosplay costume creations. But how do you choose the right cosplay costume for you? Here’s some simple tips to help you pick the perfect costume every time.
Start by thinking big. Come on… pull out your creative caps and pretend that your cosplay costume has no limits. If you could have any costume for any character, what would it be and how would it look? Think of as many as you can, no matter how outrageous they might be, and make a list. Why? Because cosplay is creative… ergo, you need to be creative too and the best way to get the juices flowing is to stretch those muscles a bit.
Toss out the obvious “no’s”. What’s a “no”? Things you refuse to wear such as a mask or 5 inch heels, things that would be too bulky, too heavy or too hot and things you just don’t want to have to fool with. Once you’ve figured these things out, you can tweak your list accordingly.
Narrow your list. Now look at what you have left and try to pick out your top three favorites. Can this costume stand on its own or do I need other cosplayers to complete the look? Choose and get busy! Making your final decision is really just going to be a matter of preference but you can probably pick your costume a little easier.
