[Cosplay] 10 Last-Minute Cosplay Tips for Girls

Please dont say youre lazy...

Please don't say you are lazy...

As the season of anime conventions is rolls in, the time to prep your costumes is running out. Do you even have a costume this year? I don’t (well, not any new ones). In fact, I’ll probably revert to going back to normal when I’m not doing maid cafe duties. But suppose if you (like me) don’t have a costume, but (unlike me) still want to enjoy the most celebrated tradition of anime conventions, then here’s a shortlist I’ve devised with things you can wear/do to animoot yourself to fit in with the other crazy cosplayers.

1) Experiment with moe hairstyles. This includes ponytails, twintails, buns, blunt bangs (cut at your brows), as well as other weird hairstyles you would not otherwise do. Big hair accessories, like bows, headbands, and bobby pins, are popular as well.

2) Dress like an Asian–lots of layers, accessories, and light, bright colors. Girls almost always wear dresses or skirts and heels, so prepare your Nair and Dr. Scholl’s. Who knows, you could be mistaken for a character in a shoujo/slice-of-life series.

3) Wear your old school uniform (or make one up). Blazers? Sweater vests? As long as you’re wearing your skirt above school dress code and knee socks, you’re good to go! Bonus points for thigh-highs or zettai ryouki.

Its that simple... just needs more zettai ryouki.

4) Wear a (sars) face mask, roll up your sleeves, and bind your chest. Instant yankee! Make sure to get your bat peace bonded, first.

5) Wear an eye-patch. Pink eye is in vogue and is always 緒萌え~ This can be added to any of the previous tips for extra flair. Who knows, maybe you could pass as handicapped.

6) If you’re Asian, wear your traditional ethnic clothes. They probably won’t tell the difference between a choengsam and an ao dai anyway.

7) Got a really embarrassing/tacky party dress, full of sequins and bright colors, that your aunt gave you? Wear it and bring a cordless mic. You’re now an idol!

8) Glasses. Pretty self explanatory. Ever tried the secretary look?

9) Wear a mask. You’re now a Nico Nico Douga anon.



10) If all else still makes you look fugly, Dress like an otaku.

    Bei der Buchung einer LastMinute Reise sollten, egal wie günstig der Preis auch bereits
    erscheinen mag, verschiedene Anbieter verglichen werden.

    Denn gerade in diesem Bereich
    sind die Preisunterschiede bisweilen ganz erheblich.

    Eine Reise, die im normalen Tarif um die
    2.000 Euro gekostet hätte, kann kurz vor Reiseantritt mitunter bereits für die Hälfte des

    Preises zu bekommen sein.
