How Cosplayers Use Everyday Objects for Their Costumes

Costume making materials like Worbla and EVA foam are invaluable, but they’re not the only game in town. In fact, with creativity and resourcefulness, you can find inexpensive items around your home and at thrift stores to use for costumes. I’ve talked about the helpfulness of many everyday objects in this series, and Japanese cosplayers are taking to Twitter to show off their cheap finds with “The Championship of Incorrectly Used 100 Shop Goods” hashtag. Even if you’re not familiar with the language and even though Google Translate is a bit off, the pictures tell the story.

For example, the above image from @mikel_cresson shows a mechanical armor he made from trash can and shear pieces. You can see the before picture below. Other examples include using gardening fence for a hoop skirt, a bin and sun visor combination for a hat, cheap bamboo placemats for armor, and more.

I recommend perusing the hashtag for inspiration.
