Cosplay Props Galore: Cosplay Idol’s Weapon Masters Unite!
Cosplay prop making is a fantastic way for a cosplayer to really show off their stuff, and this contest has given it’s entrants a chance to do just that. The type of skill it takes to make a massive weapon, detailed magical staff, or giant pair of wings really differs from your typical pattern sewing expertise. A well rounded costumer can make amazing props to match their equally amazing outfits – and the people featured here have really proven that they deserve to be counted among some of the best!
All these cosplay photo submission are taken from the Otaku House Cosplay Idol competition!
