More Ways to Change Your Appearance
If you want to try cosplay, it might be a lot of fun to go for a full change - including eye color, hair and of course clothing. ACOS Akihabara has all the tools you need to be an entirely different person!
First of all, let's use color contact lenses to completely change your eye color.
There are a lot of contact lenses at the store, and an explanation is displayed for beginners when they want to know how, as well as which contacts to use.
Don't forget that you need identification documents such as your passport when you purchase color contact lenses. You'll need to fill out an agreement form and these are definitely a non-returnable item.
Next, let's try some of the colorful wigs to change your hair color and style! These are the most popular models.
These unnaturally vivid red and soft pink wigs are considered rather rare colors and are quite popular among both Japanese and international cosplayers. You'll stand out from the crowd wearing these wigs at any cosplay events!
The most important tool for cosplay is definitely, the costume. They sell many types of costumes, reproducing those that anime characters wear in their respective series.
On the other hand, these are also school uniforms worn by ordinary Japanese high school students. There are a number of anime fans who are quite interested in Japan's unique high school life.
There are boys' school uniforms as well! Of course you can also find the matching hats, bags, and ribbons here too.
These are ribbons for the girls' school uniforms. Why not build your own perfect uniform here?
