Cosplay Costume Fabric, Materials & Supplies
Make Cosplay Costumes
Cosplay is one of the most popular ways to dress up, with fans of sci-fi, fantasy, comics and Manga looking to recreate the look of their favourite characters. Whether you’re an experienced cosplayer or just starting out, you’ll find everything you need for creating your dream cosplay costume here. From essential fabric such as the 7000 satin to our stiffened Buckram which is perfect for costume moulding. At Parkin we have it all.
Your imagination really is the limit when it comes to cosplay and our range of thermoplastics will let you mould your own armour, create weapons and craft a huge range of outfits that wouldn’t be possible with fabric alone. Planning is essential and working out what materials you’ll need is all part of the fun.
For those new to the art, you’ll definitely want to download a sewing pattern as it will help you order the right amount of cosplay material and fabric. If you’re unsure of what colour fabric to order, don’t forget to order some different colour swatches to help you decide.
Cosplay is all about being creative, which means you don’t have to stick truthfully to the limitations of your character as you can create an alternative version. So if you’re character is always the hero, how about creating them as a villain, complete with sinister outfit colours. These subtle changes can turn your cosplay costume from good to outstanding.
Buckram is useful for making masks or adding structure to outfits. Worbla and Fosshape thermoplastic are great for moulding armour and weaponry. At Parkin, we’ve got you covered with a wide range of cosplay fabrics, materials and supplies available to buy online.
