Top 4 Cosplay Costumes Everyone Should Have
Cosplaying is an exciting opportunity where people can re-live their fantasies. For a day during the event, you can live a different persona. The days leading to the event are the most critical as you have to decide which character you will be playing.
More importantly, developing the costume is going to take you a whole week, unless you are going to buy a ready-made one. The thing is, ready-made cosplay costumes are nothing more than cloth and cheap renditions of the character, so you are better off making your own.
But what characters should you have in your cosplay wardrobe? Today, we will give you some ideas about the top timeless and iconic groups of characters whose costumes you should prepare in advance.
Mortal Kombat has been around since the 1990s, and it is not going away soon. There is a long list of characters here, all colorful and sexy and downright cool.
You can choose ninjas, female warriors and princesses, and even aliens, like Goro. You can also dress up in elaborate soldier garb and draw inspiration from the Cage family in the game.
This franchise has been around for what? 40 Years? From Darth Vader to Master Yoda, there is a wide selection of characters here, with some leading characters in human form.
Dress up in extravagance as the Queen of Naboo or embody the simple ways of the Jedi. If you want a more complicated costume, choose from the alien races like Jar Jar Binks and Yoda.
Superheroes and Villains
This one has an endless list of characters that you can choose from. You can start from the A-list heroes and villains of either DC or Marvel, but you have to put in a lot of work to get the costumes done right.
If you think the A-list heroes are cliché, then choose supporting characters like Mera of Aquaman, Okeye of Black Panther or less known villains like Crimson Cowl, Vril Dox, or Brainiac.
This is a game that captivated the world when Capcom released it in 1987. Over the past decades, the Street Fighter series has added a ton of characters. Street Fighter, by far, is a group considered as one of the most attractive for cosplay because of their physique.
Choose from a long list of female and male characters, almost all of which are human, or opt for those who have abnormally big muscles or elaborate garbs like Balrog, Vega, Dhalsim, and Kuma.
It takes a long while to create a costume. Should you choose something that requires you to beef up your muscles or reduce your weight, then you have to prepare earlier if you want to stand out. It is always best to do your own costume: you can watch videos and guides how to do them. While doing that, you can play Marvel-themed freeslots, for example, to get to know the characters better.
