Cosplay: The Anime Costuming Handbook – Catgirls and Other Critters

Currently Unavailable

Why just draw your favorite anime character when you can be it? Cosplay-short for “costume play” – is sweeping the anime con scene from coast to coast, and once again we’re leading the way with a pair of books for both beginning and veteran cosplayers.

Volume 1 covers Catgirls, a favorite of fans from All Purpose Cultural Catgirl Nuku-Nuku to Hyper Police and great for purring and prowling. Volume 2 is all about Schoolgirls (think “Sailor Moon”) and how to make uniforms with just the right bouncy-skirt anime style.
