Of course, the costume that you would put on for your cosplay event is not limited to your clothes. You would also need a wig, especially if the character you are showing up as has an unusual hairstyle and hair color. It may also be necessary for you to wear makeup – you would not want to cut a lightning scar on your forehead just to make yourself look like Harry Potter, would you?
Props and accessories are also in order in cosplay events. A Harry Potter getup will not be complete without his spectacles and his magic wand. Knights in shining armor need swords. A princess cannot be a princess without her tiara.
Cosplays are fun events for people who love going to them, all dressed up and dolled up for the party that cosplays often are. Putting together your costume for the event is definitely half the fun of it.
