Cosplay Help...
Righty... I've got a bit of a question.

My friend and I would like to cosplay atleast one time in our lives, and we really wanna go do it. Problem is, we have no materials, no clue where to buy the materials, and even if we had the materials, we wouldn't be creative enough to make a good suit.

So I was thinking to buy 2 complete suits, but after searching a lot, nothing/ nobody was found who actually sell those. Especially to a European country. Does anyone have some handy tips for buying Cosplaysuits in Europe? Maybe some sites that can help?

I will appreciate all the help. I will need it :s

Also, the cosplaysuits I'm looking for are Dynasty Warriors/ Samurai Warriors outfits.

The best thing to do would be to approach a commissioner and ask them for quotes. I assume you're in the UK, since your profile doesn't say, but there are commissioners out there who'll ship to the UK, and even a few who are based in the UK (look in the Market Place section and see who's advertising their services).

Some non-UK commissioners who will ship to the UK (and whom I've heard good things about) include God Save The Queen (although they will be pricey, especially for something as intricate as Dynasty Warriors) and human_go on eBay.

Good luck!

No, I don't live in the UK. I live in the netherlands, so I hope that wouldn't be a problem. Someone linked me to this site as a possible help in Europe, that's why I came here for^^;

Also, I've checked Ebay, but those aren't really the costumes I want.

Cheers for the clarification!

You could email God Save The Queen and see if they'll ship to you (they do ship to the UK so I'd be surprised if they'd have a problem with shipping to the Netherlands). With human_go, you don't have to look in their store to see if they have your costume - you can just email them with reference pics and they'll give you a quote on how much it'll cost to make the costume for you. They definitely ship worldwide, too. Have a look round some other costume-sellers on eBay too, since a few of them will do commissions on request and will ship worldwide, but some of them are better than others.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot then. We're not planning on cosplaying very soon, so only some info and price check would do. Thank you for your help, I'll get on to it tomorrow.

And who knows I'll be roaming around these forums ^^

You could try Tokyotoys. They do a few cosplays.

Failing that, I take commissions and would be especially interested in Dynasty Warriors clothing (I've always wanted to make one, but I never was interested in cosplaying any of the characters). I'm sure there are a few more commissioners on here, you just have to nudge them (maybe put that in the topic description).

However, no matter where you commission from, Dynasty Warriors type costumes are not going to be cheap. Maybe you could ask the commissioners on eBay who are from places where the fabric is cheaper (i.e. China, etc) and have faith in them to be able to make it?
