I tried to search after a thread like this but didn't seem to find any, forgive me if there's already a thread out there that's a replica of this one...

So I thought it would be interesting to hear what's the latest purchases/materials you fellow cosplayers have bought for your cosplays! Please share them here and it would be great to get some more info, for example where you bought it and what cosplay you're going to use it for etc etc. Post 'em folks! :)


Today me and my one cosplaying (best) friend went out to a shopping center after school, it's not that far away, walking distance. We went into this one shop, Tiimari, that sells stuff like carneval costumes, party stuff, school objects for children, glue and glitters, plastic flowers and just random crafty things like styrofoam objects etc etc. That shop is sometimes a good searching place for cosplay "raw material". lol
So yeah, my friend found some pretty big blue plastic beads that I could use to make the bracelet for my current dream cosplay... wuhuuu! <3

Half a hojillion Swarovski sequins. I'm so looking forward to putting them on Titania's jacket!

(if you want to sparkle like a bastard too, and regular acrylic sequins just aren't doing it for you anymore, google "Swarovski 3112" for a variety of sourcing options. They're so cool.)

A red Alexander McQueen scarf for Grell. He totally doesn't wear a scarf, but if he did, he'd wear McQueen.

In the process of commissioning a headset for my Miku cosplay. c:

My wig for Jasdebi. :D I love it to bits, but I'm scared it'll get tangled easily. Gotta be careful.

Otherwise I bought green fabric dye yesterday. ಠ_ಠ But somehow... it didn't turn out like I wanted to...

Things that I've bought so far this year:

Storm wig, Stocking wig, Socks for Stocking, fabric for Garterbelt, fabric for Stocking, fabric for Ike, fabric for 4th Hokage, fabric to make subspace bag, boots for Storm, shoes for Stocking and many other little things that I forgot.
