Cosplay has now become one of the major cultures of Japan. We have many events throughout the year for cosplayers to show their outfit and have pictures taken. Some people have even become professionals and have released photo albums.
As part of the Japanese experience, you may want to try doing cosplay maybe once in your life. Here are 5 shops in Tokyo that have the best collections in cosplay costumes and goods.
ACOS Akihabara specializes in cosplay goods. They have the newest cosplay goods, along with wigs and makeup sets. You can also try the clothes on before buying them.
