Cosplay has always been a major part of my life, as this is something I have been doing for 5 years now. So I felt like it was something that I should share with my readers. Through this hobby, I have learned so much and made many friends. In this post, I hope to explain to you what cosplay is all about, and how you (yes you!), can cosplay like a boss.

cosplay wig stores

So you’ve gotten into the wonderful hobby that is cosplay. You have chosen the character that you want to dress up as. The costume isn’t too hard to tackle, but where on earth are you going to find that bright pink hair to wear. Have absolutely no fear, as I’ve come with a compiled list of some of the cosplay wig stores online.

As someone who lives in the Caribbean, it can be difficult to find reasonably priced wigs for your cosplay. You know what with the exchange rate and all. There’s a belief that the cheaper something is, the lower the quality of side item. Personally I find this to be true in many cases, but there’s always exceptions to the rule.

So if you want to check out the list, click the jump below!

cosplayers, caribbean

Hello my lovelies, I’m back at it again with another list post and this time it’s on the topic of cosplay and The Caribbean. So I have something to confess to you guys, I…am a cosplayer, haha. But on a real, as a cosplayer within the Caribbean I feel like the community here doesn’t get enough love. We really don’t. A couple years back I did a post about Cosplaying and Convention Culture in the Caribbean. Now I wanted to actually bring the cosplayers to the forefront and feature some cosplayers from this wonderful region.

Not many people know this, but there is a cosplay community in the Caribbean. Some of these countries include Barbados, Jamaica, St. Lucia and Trinidad & Tobago. Like many cosplayers in North America, Europe and Asia, they have their own cosplay pages. So I really wanted to showcase those who have their own pages, even though there are many more without. The cosplayers featured on this page are listed in alphabetical order. Also this is yet again, not a complete list of cosplayers in the region and I would be more than willing to include a ‘Part 2’ to this list, featuring even more Caribbean cosplayers.

anime convention, comic convention, caribbean, animekon, anime nation, comic con

Hello everyone. I’m here once again to talk to you about something that relates to Japanese culture, cosplay. In recent times, elements of cosplay has been integrated into everyday dress.With anime-inspired nail art, Sailor Moon tattoos, pastel wigs and more.

Likewise, Japanese pop culture has been steadily growing in the Caribbean. The region itself has three conventions, while not as big as France’s Japan Expo, USA’s Anime Expo and Japan’s Comiket, they are notable in their own right. These conventions include Barbados’ AnimeKon, Puerto Rico’s PR Comic Con and Jamaica’s Anime Nation. Each convention puts an emphasis on mixing Japanese pop culture with local talent and each heavily features the work of local artists.
