This Cosplay Paramedic Will Save the Day

Wardrobe malfunctions are a risk of cosplay. The more complicated the costume, the more likely that something will break while you’re wearing it at a convention. This also applies if you wait until the last possible minute in the hotel room to finish assembly and adhesives don’t dry in time. However, if you didn’t pack a cosplay repair kit or if you simply don’t have what it takes to get the job done, you can look to see if the convention you’re attending has a cosplay lounge or if a friendly cosplay paramedic like Jacob LaRocca from Rocket Props is in attendance.

We’ve talked about people taking on this role at conventions before, but Rocket Props has made it a habit. He’s going to cons as Rocket’s Cosplay Repair. He was inspired to take on the job because one of his own costumes had problems at DragonCon. He told Kotaku, “I have always loved fixing things, so I decided it would be fun to fix other people’s costumes. Within minutes of buying a piece of cardboard and writing ‘Free Repairs’ on it, I had about five people asking for help. I went to CVS and stocked up on some supplies I didn’t have and it has only gotten more fun and more involved since.”
