Where to Find These Type of Stockings?
Hi hi everyone, I am new here

I was wondering where I'd get these stockings from. I've searched all over the net and the closet thing I can find are something called Toe Toe OTK Toe Socks...and I don't want toe socks lol. here

It's my first time cosplaying and posting so I hope I have the right section I am planning on being either kasumi (lol yes I know generic ), a maid (lol cliche?), or a japanese school girl (haha). It's my first time as I mentioned so I didn't want to do anything too over the top and like school has been swamping me so yea

here are links to the stockings I was mentioning. Hopefully someone knows where to buy the EXACT same ones (hopefully the place will have a variety of colours hehe), cause I really love the look, material, and shine on them And they're so anime like lol <3

stockings 01C

stockings 02A

stockings 03A

hopefully someone knows

Thanks in advance!!!!

They look like lycra to me - as in, made from stretch fabric just like you’d use for a leotard etc. The seams in those photos show that they’re sewn together from fabric, rather than however other types of stockings can be manufactured without seams.

It may be those stockings you posted pictures of were made by the wearer - it’d be a pretty much a matter of sewing some lycra into a tube if you want to try making your own! You can get shiny, even wet-look and metallic lycra depending on the effect you want.

Trying to find some to buy might be difficult since all stockings include lycra, so searching for the specific fabric type isn’t easy.

I managed to find some on eBay here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SEXY-NEW-STOCKINGS-SHINY-OPAQUE-SPANDEX-WHITE-S_W0QQitemZ130283576814QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Women_s_Underwear_Design_2?hash=item1e55819dee
and I’m sure you can find others if those aren’t quite right. Remember you could also look for tights (search for “pantyhose” too), and cut them up, and also search for “thigh highs”, and “spandex” as well as “lycra”

I'm glad that was helpful. If you didn't notice, that ebay seller has other sizes in their store, up to XXL, so some will no doubt fit you!

I'm back! lol

Well as for the metallic-y stockings I'm pretty sure it's almost the same as the ones on the ebay site. However, the other 2 are not from there And I'm 100% sure that she didn't make it herself cause in one of the pics (I didn't post it) there's a tag with japanese characters on it inside the stocking So it's from Japan lol...and it's soooo nice too! I want themmmmm lol Sigh...this is the hardest thing to search for lol

Here's the tag compiled in an image lol...

They're real pretty, but I doubt you can buy them easily...

You could always get them online, search on ebay or a clothing store, some stores are actally just for socks!

This one has many beauuuutiful ones!
Search around 'n see if there's anything suitable.


Also, if you're going to do a classic Japanese school girl, easily buy some plan black/grey knee highs. I bought a pack of 3 for like £1.50 at primark.
:'D They're comfy 'n warm too!


Good luck with your cosplay!
