Convention Must-Haves for Cosplayers

  1. Setting Spray

A good setting spray will always rank very highly on any cosplayers must haves for a long con day. They are excellent for making sure that you makeup lasts all day and for giving your face a little refresher in humid/hot convention centers.

  1. Makeup Touch-up Kit

Bringing a touch-up kit to a con is essential for cosplayers who are wearing heavy amounts of makeup. For characters with different skin tones, this is extra essential as water-based body paint can easily come off with sweat or when washing your hands.

  1. Adhesives

Extra lash, prosthetic, prop and wig glue are always good to have on hand at a convention. Given how crowded and humid some conventions can get, there is always a chance that something from your cosplay can break or get unstuck. To fix any last-minute mishaps, we recommend for you to bring any extra adhesives (and dissolvents if applicable) with you in a separate disposable bag. Having any glues in a separate bag is always a good idea to avoid getting adhesive on any of your valuables. 

  1. Mini-First Aide Kit

During long cons, people occasionally get so caught up in the excitement that they forget to put themselves first. Don’t forget to bring a water bottle, bandages, a change of comfortable shoes (for those whose cosplay character is wearing uncomfortable shoes such as high-heels), as well as any medication that you normally take. If you ever get overwhelmed or start to overheat, don’t hesitate to step outside and get some fresh air, or to check in at the first-aid center.

 

2024 promises to be an exciting year for cosplayers, with a multitude of creative options to explore. Whether you choose to draw inspiration from video game characters, movies, books or create your own original creation, the cosplay world is your playground. So grab your scissors, brushes and imagination, and dive into the cosplay adventure in this year full of promise.
