Tip: Make a Cosplay Lineup and Order on TIME!

what you want to cosplaywhat you need to make it happen

*My suggestion is to have a final list of what you need to buy for your cosplays 4 months before the con!*

Here's what you should try to list up:

1. what you will be cosplaying, and which day of the convention you will wear it

2. an itemized list of what you need for each cosplay, including costs

3. which items will take the longest to make/come in (CHECK SHIPPING TIMES!)

4. where you will buy things from (links!)

5. when you need to order each thing by

Then, you can order things before the dates that you need to order by arrive, and you won't have to pay expedited shipping at the last minute!

Example: My Final List for Katsucon 2016

1. What & When

Thursday

Friday

Saturday

Sunday:

I'm still considering whether or not I will get a certain cosplay that many of my friends are wearing, but I'll decide that later ^^

2. Itemized Lists for Each Cosplay + Costs

Please, nobody add them up. I know what it all costs. Trust me, I know. My wallet already feels the pain hahahaha.

3. Which Items Will Take the Longest

For me, the cosplays that will take the longest are all the Nozomi ones, because I'm ordering them from Taobao and shipping can take a while! The shipping time can be just a few days, but I also have to account for manufacturing times, so I'll want to order these at least 3 months in advance to give enough time for any problems.

4. Where You Will Buy Things From

Things I don't need to order:

Tifa - undecided (yikessss)

Kitty AKB -@angelipon is making it for me!!! <3 <3 <3

Things I need to order:

Nozomi wig #1 (for fairytale)

Nozomi wig #2 (for all others)

5. When Need to Order By?

Realistically, I can wait until the beginning of December to order because Katsucon isn't until mid-February, but I plan to order before the end of October so I have plenty of time to make sure nothing is missing!

Am I a writer? Still deciding..
