where do i buy the materials?

Post by cherrie » Thu Sep 20, 2018 12:11 pm

I was trying to buy the materials for my cosplay granblue chika but I couldn't find where to buy clothes and EVA foams and other stuffs. I usually bought them at markets back in Korea but i'm at middle of no where rn so I have to buy online. Any suggestions?

That really depends on how "middle of nowhere" you are. If you have transportation, a lot of places have a fabric and crafts store such as JoAnn Fabrics or Michaels where you can pick up a lot of the materials you might need. You can usually order things online from those stores as well.

If transportation is more of an issue, or your nearest craft store is further than you're willing to go, Amazon.com or just using Google to look for the specific things you want might be your best bet. For the EVA foam, I found https://tntcosplaysupply.com/ by putting "EVA foam" into Google - it was one of the first results. I don't know anything about their reliability, quality, or price-comparison though, so you might want to shop around a bit like that.

TNT Cosplay is a great online place to get EVA. Also as a heads up, if you order online from JoAnn Fabrics their shipping time is ridiculously, unnecessarily long. I waited over 3 weeks for an item that I bought online because I didn't have time that week to make it to a store, and another time over 4 weeks.
