Fun Closet Cosplay: The Big Bang Theory

News today: we got a new guest writer SB! welcome.

Sarah-Beth Plishka or SB for short is the blogger behind “The Art of Fit and Nerd”. She loves writing about all things nerdy and fitness, and has a huge love for cosplay. Though new to crafting, she loves making simple cosplays or closet cosplays, and is slowly building her collection. When not blogging, you can find her on Twitter or on Facebook .

 

I love The Big Bang Theory! My partner and I have been fans of this series since episode 1 of season 1 and watch every episode as soon as it comes out. So I decided to take our love of the show to the next level and create closet cosplays of some of our favourite characters! Closet cosplays are a fantastic way to show love for some of your favourite characters when you are pinched for time and need something last minute or don’t have the extra cash to create something from scratch. All you need is a bit of creativity to look at your own closet as a shop of opportunities.

After a quick scan of both mine and my partner’s closets, I chose Sheldon Cooper for my partner and Bernadette for myself. Here’s some thoughts on putting together successful closet cosplay for these two Big Bang Theory characters!

Miccostumes Valentine’s Day Cosplay Contest

cosplay contestValentine’s Day is for couples, and it ‘s not only for couples! We are hosting a cosplay contest on Miccostumes Facebook.

CONTEST TIMELINE: Submissions will be accepted between the time of this post and 11:59pm PDT on 2/10/2016. Votes will be accepted until 11:59pm PDT on 2/13/2016. The winners will be announced on Valentine’s Day, 2/14/2016

“COUPLES” CONTEST THEME:
The theme for this contest is “couples cosplay”. Each entry must include two or more cosplayers from the same series, game, etc. The characters do not have to have a canon romantic relationship, but must share enough similarities to be considered a pair. More than two characters is acceptable in cases such as love triangles and harems, but random assortments of characters will not be accepted.

VOTING & SCORING:
To vote, search the hashtag #miccontest2, and like+comment+share the entries that you wish to vote for. Each person may vote for an entry a maximum of 1 time. Please note that you must like, comment, and share a post to register as a single “vote”. This is a new measure we are trying out to prevent cheating using false accounts. Contestants are allowed to like, comment, and share their own posts, but doing so will not count towards their final score.

CLAIMING YOUR PRIZE:
After announcing the winners on our page, we will send out notifications to the winners asking them to confirm and claim their prizes. If a winner does not confirm within 3 days (72 hours) of the notice, or if he/she turns down his/her prize, the prize will be given to another contestant.

DISCLAIMER:
Contest rules are subject to change without notice.

Couple Cosplay – Are you willing to be my master?

Under this contract, you are no longer a passer-by to me but the most important person in my life. Of the multifarious contract relationships in animes, some are touching, some are funny. Do you want to be a master or a servent? Here’re some couple cosplay ideas for you and your friend.
Ciel Phantomhive and Sebastian Michaelis from Black Butler

Sebastian Michaelis, Ciel Phantomhive Cosplay

Cosplayer LALAax
Attack from human makes no effect to him. He is Sebastian, who is a devil and only takes orders from his master Ciel before Ciel reaches his own purpose of revenge. After Ciel’s revenge done, he must give his soul to Sebastian. IOW, his soul will forever belong to the black butler Sebastian.

Contract Mark: a magic matrix on Sebastian’s left hand and Ciel’s blinder on his right eye.

Kuroshitsuji - Ciel & Sebastian

Louise Valliere and Hiraga Saito from The Familiar of Zero

Louise & Saito Hiraga from The Familiar of Zero
I unexpectedly become a pet (no, a magic)!?
The girl Louise, a magic school’s second grade student, had summoned Hiraga as the magic who would serve her. Louise asked Hiraga to sign a contract with her.
Strange words emerged from the back of his hand and he became the exclusive magic to Louise. He had no way but to live with Louise and to find out the ways to go back to his original world.

Rin Tohsaka and Archer from Fate Stay Night

Rin Tohsaka and Archer

Cosplayer 間桐君棘

Rin Tohsaka is one of the three main heroines of Fate/stay night who acts as the Master of Archer in the Fifth Holy Grail War. She’s got the command spell on her right hand.
Mirotic of Rin when summoning Archer:
Announcement!
Your soul belongs to me. Your fate gives you the sword.
Conform to the Holy Grail to response and make an oath. You are the one who achieve all the benevolence. You are the one who transmit all the sins.

C.C and Lelouch from Code Geass

C.C and Lelouch from Code Geass

Cosplayer 沐晓
C.C and Lelouch make a contract about energy grant, which means that C.C must grant the energy of Geass to Lelouch to help him reach his purpose. In return, he must help C.C complete one thing.
About the energy: Lelouch’s Geass manifests itself as “the power of absolute obedience,” which allows him to plant commands within a person’s mind upon direct eye contact. He is granted this ability through his contract with C.C.

The contract mark in on C.C’s forehead and in Lelouch’s eyes.
