Hey guys! As you know, spring is fast approaching...and with it comes our annual spring meet-up at the zoo~

We're still trying to decide when would be best to have the meet-up, so we were wondering when everyone had their spring break. I hope that we can try to compromise a time in which most of us are free, and I look forward to having another great get-together! c:

Are you still letting people join your group ? Because I have been looking for a cosplay group to join and possibly cosplay with others near me. I live in High Ridge. It's 33 minutes from St Louis. Anyway it would be great to finally cosplay with others. The only person I cosplay with is my best friend, she cosplays Russia. Please send me a message to reply or reply to this, thanks.

Oh that's good! Do I have to be a certain age ? Honestly it'd be better to discuss either on kik if you have one. My name on there is attackontitan_anime. Or anything else thats easy to discuss on.

I'm going to second the thrift store comment. My current cosplay excluded, all of my past cosplays have been part thrift store, part I make a prop for it myself. It's fun. :D

That's cool that you're daughter wants to get into cosplaying, and it's awesome that you want to help her. I know that cosplaying can get pretty involved, and pretty confusing for those new to it (my parents and I were lost at first on where to start haha). In light of that, I'd love to do all I can to help and shared what I know (though I am by no means an expert, I'm still learning new things all the time)

As far as where to go, I've found that the easiest option is to buy the cosplay online (but then you run the risk of getting poor quality cosplay), cosplay is definitely something that can get kind of pricey too if you want really nice outfits.
Personally though, I shop around at thrift stores in the area and see if I can spot anything that resembles the clothes I'm looking for and then piece it together. This way is a lot cheaper usually, but it's not always easy to find what you're looking for.

As far as wigs go, I don't recommend going to a Halloween store(as their wigs are usually very low quality and thin), I order online from a site called ArdaWigs. Their wigs are extremely high quality and very natural looking, but they are a bit expensive depending upon the length of the wig (typically $30-$60). If that price is too high, ebay is always an easy alternative (just watch out for stock images and bad reviews)

I hope this was helpful~ If you have any more questions or want me to explain anything further don't hesitate to ask, I'd love to help! c:

Hi! Sorry if this is a bit late.  I hope your daughter had a great Christmas.  I get most of my cosplays online on eBay or hellocosplay.com.  If the cosplay she wants looks simple, however, Goodwill and Plato's Closet both have a wide array of things.

I wish it was at Forest Park like it was two years ago. Collinsville is Far away from where I live. I want to go so badly! I've never gotten to go to APH day. I feel sad about that. Hopefully I can go next year.
