This past year I’ve started to dabble in cosplay. I’ve dressed up as Ali Brosh from Hyperbole and a Half, Steampunk Princess Bubblegum, Fantastic Mr Fox, and Cersei Lannister. Even though that’s just four costumes, I’m ALREADY feeling the storage pinch. Where do I put my huge plush fox hat? What about the broom? That Cersei dress is quite bulky. And all the wigs!? OMG, y’all. My husband is sick of me using his guitar cases as wig stands.
That’s why this “IKEA bedroom stories” video, featuring a super-awesome cosplayer, made my day. Watch this and then let’s talk…
Honestly, I wish they had gone into more detail about how they organized all his costumes. Where was the wig storage? What about armor storage? Hmmm. This is a new hobby for me, and I’m already feeling like it’s going to overtake my closet soon.
So I throw it to you the cosplayers in the house. How do you store your costumes? Ikea hacks? Storage bins? Incorporate it all into your decor? What are your cosplay storage solutions?
