Costumes, cosplays, conventions and getting hooked to them

There’s always something about cosplays that draws me to it.  From sexy costumes to amazing feats of creativity and engineering (yeah, it’s not just about the pretty girls), cosplay has gone from a fad that’s just for geeks and otakus to every one who loves to don a costume or simply standout.

Hey, there’s even children’s costumes too.  Here’s a quick sample.

Cute right?

Now, cutesy stuff aside, men touting DSLRs (like me for example) simply love showstealers like a hot adult female in costume.  It makes all the effort of going to a convention (like the upcoming Toy Con 2008) all the more worth it especially when your shot comes out picture-perfect.  But seeing that more and more people are getting intested in cosplay photography, you may need to go the extra mile like what I did below:

You may be asking, I’m interested in doing cosplays but don’t know where to start.  First off, the easiest way is looking for a local seamstress or tailor that can do your bidding.

If you can’t find one, then why not try Halloween Adventure.  Don’t let the name fool you, they have more than just Halloween themed costumes and these range from popular icons like Harry Potter to Super Heroes and to even Historically-themed ones (medieval, egyptian, ancient greece).  They even have quite a selection of accessories (like wigs and hats, I think I found a wig that I need for an upcoming cosplay plan) and other props to help you give more personality to your costumes.  What’s more they have sizes for everyone, from children costumes, teens to full-sized (and over) adults halloween costumes.

It’s like a one-stop costume shop with over 10,000 items up for grabs.  Order online and have it delivered right to your doorstep.  Neat huh?

They also have a quick & easy return policy and an option for same day shipping.  How can you go wrong with that?
