Racking your brain for the next cosplay idea? If you want to do something different, go to a convention as a cosplay repairperson. Cosplayer Lovejoynet shared a photo of a girl (pictured above) she spotted at a Costa Rican convention dressed as a cosplay paramedic. Others replied with photos they’ve spotted of cosplayers in similar attire. More and more conventions also have booths or rooms dedicated to costume repair. They’re stocked with safety pins, duct tape, hot glue, etc. — the basics to get you through in the event of a wardrobe malfunction.
You can make the costume as simple or elaborate as you want with a wearable cosplay medic outfit. A bandolier stocked with thread, zip ties, etc, would be fabulous and so would a vest or cargo pants covered in pockets, or a briefcase light enough to carry around all day. Whatever you wear or carry, be sure you have a clear sign or label so cosplayers know they can turn to you when/if something goes wrong on their costumes.
