There’s a new costuming book out that delivers just what it says – 1000 Incredible Costume and Cosplay Ideas.
The book, available on Amazon.com, features photos of each costume along with the name of the character, person in the photo and photographer. I have it sitting out at the shop so when people have no idea for an outfit I can be like, “Well here’s 1000.” They include several different genres from anime to TV shows, plus original works and some props as well. It’s a great overall peek into cosplaying. I’d love to see the idea expanded where you get to learn the story and work behind each costume. Some are so amazing you just want to know more!
The 3 photos from Three Muses that made it in were Harley Quinn, Alice & Mad Hatter and Spanish Rose Dawn (Cry for Dawn). Interesting selection because it pretty much encompasses my time at DragonCon throughout the years. The first big cosplay I did there was Spanish Rose Dawn for the Cry for Dawn look-a-like contest. The photos for Alice and Mad Hatter were actually shot there, on the side staircase in the Marriott. And last year I wore my new original version of Harley Quinn, which I will have back on the site and available this Halloween.
