♩ We getting specific ♩
General packing it's ok, right? But when you are a cosplayer there is even MORE stuff you are going to be packing and worrying about.
Depending on how big the travel or trip you are making, you might use more than one cosplay, like three-day conventions, for example. So you don't only have to make a list of all the items, you ALSO have to be good at labeling them and organizing them. I have a blog already about How to Properly Store Your Wig, that might be handy for this situation.
But we need to store more than just a wig, sometimes you will have armor, plushies, shoes, etc. Here is an example list of items you might need to consider:
⚉ Cosplay Example ⚉
➊ List of Items
✦ Hair Pin
✦ Vambrace (x2)
✦ Sleeves (x2)
✦ Under Shirt
✦ Boots (Plus Socks)
If you have more than one cosplay you can put every cosplay in a different big bag. Make sure you label it. Inside that bag, make sure you put every item in a Ziplock bag https://amzn.to/3T6Tbes, with its pair (if it has one). Put a label (https://amzn.to/3NCCqXA) on it with the name. For the shoes, you can place them in a separate bag (https://amzn.to/3DCiQGq) at the bottom of the suitcase.
Pack your cosplay bags in order of use, on top of the first one and last on the bottom. And in the same order after use so you don't miss anything or forget anything at the hotel.

For make-up and liquid items, make sure you check the plane permits and try to pack everything tightly. I usually wrap liquid makeup with duct tape and put it inside a Ziplock bag for double safety.
There is no safe place in this world for any armor and foam we@pons unfortunately. For long travels, if you make these items yourself, make sure you can ensemble them and disassemble them for easier storage. If not, you will probably have to bubble wrap them and make sure you take paint and glue for any inconvenience.
And that's it! ♡
This is the first complete list of cosplay that you are going to need for your trip. There are more tips coming about how to store your makeup and what to carry to the convention with you!
