6 Cosplay Costumes for the Emotionally Unstable

, , 1 comment

So. After years of watching of watching convention things on tv and seeing amazing cosplay online, you've decided to take the plunge and attend one yourself. Uno problema: you have no idea what costume to wear. Since we love you and want you to be happy while not bringing our names up during your trial, here a few ideas that should send in the right direction for your perfect costume. Let's get to it.

1. Sebastian (The Little Mermaid)

Pictured: Nothing Terrifying at All. 

This is especially perfect if you intend to take public transportation. Not only will the additional legs guarantee you maximum space without having to pay for the extra seat (hey, you're ok with sharing, it's everyone else that won't sit with you), if properly constructed, you have two new appendages with which to hold extra beers/vodka disguised as juice.

Bonus: Mr Crabs from Spongebob. 

2. Demon Hipster Chicks (Scott Pilgrim vs The World)


Not only will absolutely no one know who you're supposed to be without the additional chicks, you will also look sonewhere between 'vaguely disturbing' and 'an actual hell creature'.
Who wants to talk to a hell creature? You'll get to say you attended NAICCON, take tons of pics for Insta AND not have to speak to anyone. The dream: you lives it.

3. Magnitude (Community)

Socially awkward, anxious or shy? Still crave human interaction? We gotchu.
If you want to talk to people but generally have nothing to say, Magnitude's trademark catch phrase helps you tick all the boxes AND be the most intersting person in the room. Pop pop, gents, pop pop.

4. The Cabbage Merchant (Avatar: The Last Airbender)

Meanwhile, at Fashion Week 2017

Think of the props! Admittedly, running around in what amounts to wizarding robes, yelling "My cabbages" might...get you committed to a mental institution, BUT, but. It might also spawn a religion around your legend of sheer awesome. You'll never know until you try.

5. Cheryl Tunt (Archer)

Because we care.

Aside from finally realizing your dream of being a redhead, Cheryl also gives you the best out: everyone will EXPECT you to show up very high on paper glue and/or start a small fire.
Failure to do so will be breaking character so you're kind of obligated here, we don't make the rules.
Is your local firebrigade made up entirely of underwear models? Find out, with this simple choice that we are not legally liable for.
This costume is, of course, unisex.

6. A Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin)

I am beautiful, no matter what you say...

If your priority is a simple, easy cosplay, this right here is the ultimate.
We've previously discussed the fashion merits of SNK but here, we go down to bare bones.

All you'll need here is:
-Flesh coloured underwear
End of list.

Should you be inspired to go as the Female, Colossal or Armoured Titan, a simple stick of chalk will suffice to draw on the muscles & ligaments necessary. Alternatively, start dating your local butcher now & gain their trust so that when you're ready, you'll be able to go full level 9,000:

This could be us, but...
Now, wasn't that easy?

Here's to attending the inevitable meet cute at NAICCON 2015 where you accidentally bump into me, I smile sweetly, extend my hand and whisper, "MY CABBAGES".
Stay conventionally attractive, folks.
