Now you’re probably thinking, “Pinni, if I go to my local supermarket as Goku I’d probably be asked to leave.”
Yeah, I getcha. Besides, that wig would most likelu take someone’s eye out, and you wouldn’t want that.
Unlike other hobbies out there, cosplay is very much seasonal – cons are only held every now and then, and especially in countries like Australia, they’re only on a couple of times a year.
Sure, you can also organise your own photoshoots, but they only last a couple of hours – not to mention they don’t leave much time for you to do anything else other than pose.
Waiting for the next con to roll around can get pretty boring, so why not take advantage of every other day? I’ll be showing you a small selection of series where some of the characters’ outfits (or parts of it) can be worn comfortably at the mall or the park!
KATEKYO HITMAN REBORN! – underachiever Sawada Tsunayoshi is forced to become heir to the infamous Vongola Family due to a very distant familial relationship. The current head sends a hitman, Reborn, to get Tsuna into shape and transform him into an individual fit to become a mafia boss.
SAILOR MOON – the clumsy Tsukino Usagi befriends a talking cat who gives her the ability to transform into the beautiful “Sailor Moon”. Together, they seek out other “Sailor Soldiers” to combine their powers against evil.
BROTHERS CONFLICT – Asahina Ema’s father remarries, and as a result she has 13 new family members – brothers who fall in love with her one after another. Oh, and she has a talking pet squirrel.
LOVE LIVE! – A group of girls decide to become idols to save their school, which is forced to shut down due to the dwindling amount of enrollments. Later, they are launched into the “Love Live” idol competition which brings the best units from Japan together for a musical showdown.
