The Geek & The Cosplayer | Christmas Gift Guide

On the third day of giftmas…it’s all about the geeks, nerds, cosplayers, and otakus!

Hello lovelies! Christmas season is upon us… and that means finding gifts for friends and family! Chances are that if you’re following me, you’ve found me through my anime, cosplay, or geek related content! (If you haven’t, you can find out more about my geeky related content on my facebook or youtube channel!)

Now, I love looking for geeky themed gifts, since most of my friends are geeks! There are so many cool geeky gift ideas out there, especially as geek culture becomes more popular! Here are some ideas for pop culture fanatics, anime fans, and fantasy enthusiasts. I’ve put together a little selection of gifts for the geeks, otaku, and cosplayers in your life!

For the Cosplayer…

Just because this is a geeky cosplay guide, I figured most people would be familiar with cosplay, have a friend whose a cosplayer, or is thinking about cosplay! Here are some ideas  that every cosplayer will enjoy, as weird as this gift guide may seem haha! (Trust me, they’ll love you for it.)
  1. Crafter’s Gift Pack – Hot Glue Gun Pack – I can’t even begin to tell you how many glue sticks cosplayers go through! Help a friend out!
  2. Worbla’s Finest Art – Many cosplayers, including myself, love using this theroplastic material for armors and props!
  3. Pinky Paradise Circle Lens Gift Certificate – Want the big-eyed anime look, but in real life? Circle lenses are a must!
  4. Paint Airbrush Kit – If your cosplayer takes great pride in their painting, airbrushing can definitely help achieve a beautiful effect!
  5. Dremel Rotary Tool Kit Includes various heads and attachments. Dremels are great for carving details into foam!
  6. McCalls Cosplay PatternsMcCall’s has patterns specifically for cosplay! Great for new and experienced cosplayers alike.
  7. Kamui Cosplay Tutorial BooksMaster cosplayer Kamui has written awesome guides on making cosplay pieces! Fantastic resources.
