Cosplay Sat. Prop Questions



Hello Universe, Facebook folks and Pinterest Pals,

This week again talks about props so the question is easy.

How much have you paid for a prop you bought online or at a con? The least and most.

  1. Zero and zero. I’ve never bought a prop. I keep convincing myself I can make them, so I don’t have a lot of them. šŸ™‚

  2. I just spent around $250 on cat eye contact lenses for my dream cosplay. I’m still waiting for them to come in the mail so I can test them out. This may not be the most expensive thing either. I’m no good at making anything so I usually go with purchasing. I don’t trust myself to construct anything and I’m a huge perfectionist. I luck out that the cosplay I want to do is pretty popular, but also my favorite character so I don’t care that it’s been done before šŸ™‚

      • Oh you should never ever by the ones at the Halloween store! I had actually never worn contacts before, but I want to cosplay Sephiroth and for that you need emerald green cat eyes so I went to the eye doctor and got my first pair of regular lenses. I told her I wanted costume ones and she told me what I should look for: prescription and FDA approved. It was my coworker who found the site with them: Vision Direct. She’d located just green cat eye ones, but I found actual Sephiroth contacts that look more like his. I’m still waiting for them to charge and ship since it takes some time, but they’re my prescription so I should be able to see through them!
