Comic-Cons are a great place to really let your imagination run wild and be as creative as you want. Most conventions are held in large metropolitan areas allowing easy access to the best shopping, but what if you don’t live near a city? What if you’re not particularly crafty? What can you do?
I’ve found some suggestions online that I think are helpful. For example, there is a website called “Cosplay Fun” that has information on how to make costumes at home. There is also a blog called “Comic-Con Costume Ideas” where people share their ideas for making costumes and give tips on what to wear to a convention.
Another option is to rent or buy your costume from an online retailer. There are sites like “Rent A Cosplay” where people can rent their costumes for one day or up to three months depending on the costume and shipping costs.
If you have the time and resources, there is nothing better than creating your own costume! But for those of us who don’t have those things, buying or renting might be the better option.
If you are planning on attending a comic convention, the first thing you need to consider is what to wear. Now, the obvious answer would be a costume. After all, dressing up is not only fun but it’s also a great way to show your enthusiasm for a particular character.
The problem with costumes is that everyone else will be dressed up too. So you will have to find a way to stand out from the crowd. You don’t want to look like everyone else, do you? The good news is that there are plenty of options available.
For example, if you’re a fan of Kill Bill, then chances are good that your first instinct would be to go with the “Kill Bill” costume. This is probably one of the most common choices for those who love Kill Bill.
However, it’s not really necessary. There are plenty of other options that you can choose from in order to make yourself look unique and different from those around you at the convention. For example, if you’re into sci-fi movies like Star Wars or Alien vs Predator, then why not consider going as one of the characters from those films? Or maybe even an alien?
It is the most important question that you will ever ask yourself at a comic convention: what should I wear?
The answer is not as easy as you may think, and it can be very frustrating. Some people think that you should dress up in an amazing costume like the ones you see on television or in the movies. Others think that dressing up is a waste of time, and you should just wear normal clothes. The truth is somewhere in between.
You need to decide for yourself what works best for your situation. Your choice will depend on where your convention is located, what kind of convention it is, and how much money you have to spend. So let’s break it down into some smaller questions that are easier to answer.

Comic-Con is right around the corner and you know what that means! Time to dress up. You may be thinking, “What should I wear?” or “Should I dress up?”. Great question! So, let’s break this all down.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Comic-Con? Cosplay, right? Of course. Cosplaying is a huge part of comic con and it’s been growing in popularity year after year. There are some people who enjoy dressing up so much that they even make their own costume. Which, if you’ve ever made your own cosplay outfit, then you already know how time consuming and expensive it can be.
Well, for those of us non-crafty types there are plenty of options to help achieve your dream cosplay look. Take a look at this site for example (insert link). They have a huge selection of costumes from all your favorite shows and movies!
Let’s be honest though, not everyone likes dressing up. And that’s ok too! Don’t feel pressured to dress up just because everyone else does. Maybe you’re more into collecting comic books or action figures. If that’s the case then feel free to wear whatever makes you
With the San Diego International Comic-Con right around the corner, many of you are probably wondering what to wear. It’s tough enough trying to decide on a costume, but then there’s always the question of how much skin should you show?
Everyone knows that comic book characters always wear very tight and revealing clothing. In fact, most of them look like they should be walking the runway in Paris instead of fighting crime. So is it ok for you to dress in something similar? Should you try to show off your best features or should you cover up and be more modest?
Well, the truth is that you should do whatever makes you feel most comfortable. However, if you’re really having trouble deciding what to wear to Comic-Con this year, here are a few tips:
The bar has been raised. We are no longer in the days of cosplay when the best you could hope for was a bed sheet and a cardboard cutout mask. The costume of today needs to be carefully crafted, with attention paid to every detail. This is no simple task, but with some basic knowledge and skills, it’s possible to create a great outfit.
The first thing to keep in mind is that any costume can be made better by using more fabric, i.e. having more layers or a bigger skirt or by incorporating accessories like feathers, ribbons, buckles or lace.
I went as the Black Widow from Kill Bill last year and I had planned on making a simple cat suit with a stitched-on belt buckle and some black shoes. But one week before the convention, I found red tights at Value Village which really made the outfit pop!
Kill Bill Costume Ideas
The Kill Bill movies are two of the most stylish films ever made. The Kill Bill 2 costume design is so good, it actually won an Oscar. It would be hard to go wrong with any Kill Bill Halloween costumes this year, but here are a few ideas to get you started.
First off, if you want to dress as Beatrix Kiddo, you’re going to need a yellow jumpsuit. There actually were two versions of this suit in the movie, one made by Volpe and another made by Yolanda. The Volpe version is the more recognizable one. It has black stripes down the legs, a black collar and belt, and a yellow cap with a black visor (the cap was not worn in the film). The Yolanda version is a bit less flashy (it’s basically just a yellow jumpsuit), but it does have a red dragon embroidered on the back. Both suits are available online at various places; just do a search for “Kill Bill costume.”
Don’t forget about accessories! You can add some authenticity to your costume with details like Beatrix’s wristwatch, sunglasses, and sword (which you can buy online or even make yourself
