Casual cosplay is so fun.
I was matched up with the lovely Linsdey at Co-Host Girlfriend for the current round of the Odd Honey Swap, from my pal Harper over at Harper Honey.
I was talking with Lindsey about how easy and fun it is to mix geek elements into your everyday fashion, so I figured I’d make a quick post about some of my favorite ‘Casual Cosplay’ outfits.
So, with ‘casual cosplay,’ a lot of people don’t even realize that they like it, or already do it-
Thinking about wearing an outfit you saw on tv? Casual Cosplay.
Don’t want to go all out on designing someone’s outfit, but still want to dress like them? Casual Cosplay.
Inspired by someone’s personality or fashion style and decide to replicate it? Casual Cosplay.
Want to follow Disney’s rules for dressing up in their parks? Casual Cosplay.
Nerd? Casual Cosplay.
The list goes on an on.
I consider ‘Casual Cosplay’ to be anything reminiscent of cosplay. If you like an exact outfit from someone from tv or movies; it you want to pretend you are that character in everyday life; if you like to show off your geeky side, and wear fandom inspired outfits. All of this stuff, and more, to me, is casual cosplay.
I was thinking about some of my favorite characters from tv shows and movies, and which kind of outfits are my favorite.
For this post, I’ll focus on outfits inspired by a character, since that’s an easy place to start.
Typically, one of my favorite types for these are Disney Princess outfits done casually. This could be actual outfits from the character trimmed down to be more casual, outfits inspired by their general taste, things like that.
Here are some examples from the user ‘Juliaann35’ from Polyvore.
They’re simple, but you get the idea, right?
You can just use regular clothes to inspire your look to a new level!
You can also remix the character’s style, using their main elements (like color, texture, clothing item type, etc.) to change up their look!
Here’s some examples of ‘Hipster Disney Princesses’ that I like.
Outside of the Disney fandom, here are some other examples!
The Avengers/Marvel Universe:
And, just for fun, some of my favorites: PIZZA PLANET [from the Toy Story Franchise]
I’ll see you soon, with more!!
