Core Cosplay is your one-stop shop for inspiration and recommendations on everything you’ll need to play as your favourite characters, from need-to-know costume pieces to perfect makeup pairings. We’re passionate about helping you find all of the necessary pieces to make you look exactly like the character you’ve always dreamed of twinning with!
We know how much effort goes into cosplay, and whether you’re attending a large conference or a small get-together, we’re here for you every step of the way! Because each character has its own intricacies, we’ll make sure you don’t end up with costume pieces that you’ll never use again or that won’t stand up to your adventures.
If you’re interested in jumping into costume creation with us, check out our comprehensive guides on anime, manga, games and movies. We’re sure that you’ll find the inspiration you need to achieve the best look, wherever you’re cosplaying!
When we write our cosplay guides, we think about the different skill and expert levels of each potential reader; whether you’ve never tried cosplaying or you’re a seasoned expert, we’ll provide you with the information that’s most important to you.
We have a process when it comes to creating these guides for you. While we might not have necessarily dressed in the exact same costume we’re writing about, we do our research and pull in as many of our own experiences to ensure that you get the most comprehensive reviews. Here’s a look into our writing process:
- We do our research: Before diving into writing about specific topics, we first research any current trends that may be happening in the cosplay world. If there is a convention coming up or a great movie that’s worth cosplaying, we’ll take a deep dive so that you have the most up-to-date information.
- We don’t waste your time or money: We know that the world of cosplay can be expensive and time-consuming, especially if you have to make your own outfits or specific props to complete the look. To help you with this, we will provide links to the most affordable and versatile items that we’ve personally used or have been highly recommended to us.
- We provide further information: we know that cosplayers are both adventurous and like to seek out their own research, especially when it comes to costume DIY’s. We want to make sure that you have access to all of the info you need to create the best outfits out there!
