How to Start Your First Cosplay

Now you may be thinking, wow! I love seeing cosplayers and I love this anime, I really want to cosplay from it!! So here are some tips to get started on choosing and creating your first cosplay.

-Pick your favorite anime:
Choose your most favorite anime in the whole wide world! It can be a really old one or a new one, regardless, there will be somebody who says ‘Hey, I know where you’re from!’.

-Pick a character you like, even your favorite:
While some people don’t like to cosplay their favorite character, I personally love it! There’s nothing more exciting to me than to be able to cosplay my all time favorite at a convention and have someone tell me that I look the way they imagine the character to look in real life.

-Start with a simple cosplay:
While a more intricate cosplay is always nice, those are best saved for a second or third cosplay, once you have a little more experience. Try shopping locally and piecing together a cosplay out of parts you can find at a thrift store or things you already have. Try cosplays like Misty or Ash from Pokemon, Finn or Fionna from Adventure Time, or L or Misa Amane from Death Note!

-Sewing:
If you or someone you know sews, try asking them or sewing yourself a simple costume out of a store bought or printed out pattern. You can also try adding simple little details like lace or sequins.

-Wig:
Invest in a wig that matches your character’s hair but if your hair matches the color or length, you can use your own hair for your first cosplay by styling it or using a temporary hair dye if you want to match an odd color (and if your parents say it’s okay). If anything, a wig would work better because you wouldn’t have to mess with your own hair and they are usually fairly cheap on sites like eBay or Amazon and even on Miccostumes!!

Cosplay Ideas on Roles Using Pistols and Guns and Tips on posing

Hello again! In the previous article we discussed the roles using bow and arrows. I know some of you may find pistols and guns more attractive. So here I’m going to give you some choices on such characters for cosplay.

Part 1. Character choices

First let’s start with roles using pistols.

Yukio Okumura
Yuki Okumura is the younger brother of Okumura Rin, a 15-year-old boy in Blue Exorcist. He is a genius and the youngest exorcist in his school.

Inugami
Inugami is a dog spirit in Gugure! Kokkuri-San. It owns a pair of handguns that it uses when angered or challenged, and can even use them when in its tiny dog form. Inugami does not remember its original gender, so it can freely switch between male and female forms.

Cosplayer Kumi Isabelle

Nagisa Shiota

In the anime Assassination Classroom, Nagisa Shiota and her classmates are trying their best to kill their teacher Korosensei, who has destroyed 70 percent of the moon and plans to make an exploration on the earth. His classmate Kaede Kayano also uses a pistol.
