All About Fire And Cosplay Costumes

Fire safety is an important aspect when it comes to costumes. Due to this, you should be wary of the clothes that you buy. To be safe, you should need to do the following:

The unfortunate thing is that there are many fabrics in the market; therefore, it’s almost impossible to tell which material is fire resistant and which isn’t. To be on the safe side, you should look out for the EN71 label on your costume. This label means that the outfit complies with the EN71 which is a Europe-wide standard that tests for flammability.

Cosplaying – things I wish I knew when I was starting out

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t regret those late nights I was working on my Ichigo costume. Cosplay is all about having fun. In cosplay, you reinvent yourself and choose your story (Cosplay Outfits). You could be Shrek’s Lord Farquaad or Gandalf of the Lord of the ring. If you’re just starting up, here are a few things I wish I knew two years earlier. They are in no particular order.

1. Keep an eye on what’s trending. If you want to stand out from the crowd, don’t dress as Khal Drogo of Game Of Thrones. You’ll be surprised how many people had the same idea.

2. You don’t need to have a handsewn costume to participate in a cosplay event. You can rent a costume from a store near you or even buy them online. However, making your own costume is a great learning experience. The satisfaction that comes with it is worth more than the many hours you’ll spend watching tutorials and those you’ll spend practicing improving your sewing.
