Greetings fellow con goers. Sadly, I didn’t get any outrageous stories about con life, so this week, I have an article that I think might come in handy.

When I first started cosplaying, I lived with my brother. Sadly there wasn’t much space for storage, so…I had to make do with what I could. Sadly, there wasn’t a lot of space for my costumes or my props. Even though I didn’t have the proper space, I still feel it’s important to share some storage tips for costumes, props, and wigs.

First up, Costumes:

Now onto Props:

Finally, Wigs:

If you really want to stay organized, one thing you can do is have a checklist (online or offline) on which parts of the costume that you have. I’ve used one on my laptop before to mark my costumes, and what parts go to each one. I also add if any of them need to be fixed or things need to be added, so the possibilities are endless.

Now, I’d like to briefly touch upon the subject Roommates/Housemates.

If you have a roommate/housemate who cosplay, that’s great because chances are they know how it feels when an expensive cosplay gets misplaced or damaged. If you don’t…you might have to explain to them what it is that you do and how they can help out.

Be up front with them about this right away if they aren’t a cosplayer. You don’t want them messing with your stuff that you’ve spend a lot of time working on. If they can’t respect your stuff, then it’s going to cause a problem. When in doubt, talk to them about it.

Any who, that’s all I have for you guys this week. I’m sure that I haven’t touched upon everything, so, if you have something you’d like to add feel free to comment with it.

Next week, Lets try once again to get those interesting con stories. Let me know and I’ll compile a list.
