This is a long post where I will list helpful and useful links for your cosplay creations.

The first part contains links to international stores and in the end is a section for my swedish followers with links to shops useful in Sweden. Most of these links are from mine and Tiddeli Cosplay’s panel at ComicCon, and we also promised to publish this list which at least I completely forgot, so here it finally comes with some new additions.
In this text is a short summary of each link and in the picture below you’ll find them all listed.

International Websites
General Supplies

Ebay – Your first stop for everything cosplay related. Contains both high and low quality stuff, so be cautious and critical. You can find pretty much everything here.

Amazon – Same as Ebay, but shipping can be slightly faster here and you might find cheaper items.

MyCostumes.de – European vendor of thermoplastics like Worbla and Wonderflex but also otehr useful materials such as Fosshape and Kobracast. Also sells contacts, prosthetics, smaller materials and the occasional wig.

CosplaySupplies – American vendor of thermoplastics like Worbla and Wonderflex. Can be slightly cheaper than MyCostumes depending on what you’re buying, and sometimes has a larger amount of supplies, however European buyers usually must pay a customs fee when ordering from here.

MoeMall – Website where you can buy finished cosplays. Have never bought from there myself so cannot vouch for prices and quality, but have a lot of friends buying from here.

9mmSFX – My favorite store for contacts. Vendor of hand painted contacts, huge collection of sclera and half-scelra contacts. Both with and without prescription. Sometimes they close their shop for private buyers, but it varies from time to time so it’s worth to keep an eye on. Also distributor of contacts to several different movies and series.

Samhain Contacts – Same as 9mmSFX, vendor of hand painted contacts. Haven’t bought from there myself but have friends who have and are satisfied. Slightly cheaper than 9mmSFX.

HoneyColor and PinkyParadise – Vendors of colored lenses and circle lenses, but also have a small supply of Halloween contacts (mostly without prescription though) and scleras. Both stores have similar contents which varies a lot. PinkyParadise might have slightly more Halloween contacts than HoneyColor.

Arda Wigs – Vendor of high quality wigs. Wigs come in variety of colors and styles, also have large supply of lace fronts, twin tails and flipped weft wigs. A little pricey but totally worth the price, one of the best wig vendors for cosplayers.

Ebay (For example CosplayDNA) – Ebay has a large variety of wig vendors, my personal favorite being CosplayDNA. They have both cheaper low-quality wigs, medium kanekalon wigs and higher quality heat resistant wigs. For the cosplayer who can’t really afford Arda wigs but still want quality wigs. There are many more good Ebay stores, this is just one example.

Lucaille – I have no personal experience from this store – and I’m not even completely sure of the link since I believe it’s a Taobao store originally that recently opened up an english store, but I have a lot of friends buying wigs from here and really praising it.
