When it comes to planning a great costume, the devil is often in the details. While picking out the body of the costume itself might be easy, finding the “just-right” costume accessories that you’ll need to complete the can often turn out to be a daunting task.
Accessories like wigs, jewelry, faux weaponry, gloves, tights, stocks, glasses, masks, make-up and even shoes are often absolutely necessary for completing a look. Although this is quite a list, it’s important that you don’t forgo the “little things.”
While the devil may be indeed in the details you should remember that the fun and rewarding outcome is often in the details as well! Whether you’re entering a serious cosplay competition or just dressing up for a yearly office costume party, you’ll be glad you put in the extra effort.
Proper planning with ample time to spare is a great place to start. Just a little bit of a research and a bit of notice goes a long way when it comes to preventing the stress that comes along with last minute shopping.
First find some photos or movie stills that show your character from multiple angles and examine each carefully head to toe while making a list of what you see. Your next step will be to go shopping and to check off each item on your list as you go.
