In this article, we will be put together Cosmo and Wanda costume. I will do Cosmo’s costume first and Wanda second, then I will add the accessories last as they are the same for both Cosmo and Wanda costumes. I will leave links underneath to all the items used to put this costume together, with informative descriptions of all the items used.
For the white shirt, I got on amazon. I went for a plain looking shirt. I wanted to keep it clean as possible with no obvious branding showing, just to keepping it through to the Cosmo costume. it is made from both cotton and polyester. I found it a little bit tight in the size I ordered so I would recommend you order a size up unless you like to wear a shirt in that way. It is for the most part well made and looks very good. the perfect shit for the Cosmo and Wanda costume.
The black tie again I didn’t go overboard and buy some crazy expensive. I picked out the most affordable tie that still had a quality to it. It’s not one of those skinny tie’s which good as I didn’t want that for this Cosmo cosplay. It severed its purpose well. Overall A good affordable tie, worth the price in my opinion.
The black pants, I went for a slim fitted style, I got this on amazon. It is made from cotton and what I suspect is spandex because of how stretchy it is but I can’t be sure as they don’t really tell you. They fit true to size. For the price, I think these are a fantastic pair of black pants. I have actually used these on several other costumes along with casual wear as well so I defiantly got my money’s worth from these pants. Overall A good pair of pants for the Cosmo costume.
To finish off the Cosmo cosplay, we need a green wig. I got this on amazon. I tried to find one that was already designed to look like Cosmo’s wig but I couldn’t find one. To make this wig work and to suit the style of the costume you are going to have to style it. This involves cutting a small bit off the wig and styling in the front. As for the wig itself, I found it quite comfortable for the five hours I wore it for. the quality was good as well. Overall great wig, I had no problems with it, a nice compliment to the Cosmo and Wanda costume.
Black men’s shoes
I got a pair of formal shoes on amazon. A great dress shoe in my opinion. If you already have a pair of black dress shoes then go with them and save urself some money. If you don’t have any then these are great. Quite comfortable, coming from someone who hates these types of shoes, I much prefer trainers any day :). One of the reviews said that there was a bad chemical smell, I personally didn’t get that.
The yellow top, I went for a long sleeve t-shirt. It is made from cotton and some polyester. I found it a little tight but other reviewers said it was way too small so I’m not sure what is going on with the sizes. The t-shirt is good for the price and works well with the Wanda costume. it has a strong smell when you first get it but washing it removes it. Overall A good quality t-shirt for the Cosmo and Wanda costume.
Women’s black pants
The woman’s black pants, I went for a Dickies stretchy twill trousers. I had purchased clothing from this the brand Dickies and I was very happy with what I got. these pants were no different. The sizing was true to what I wear, (normally I’m a medium) and it was comfy to wear. it is a slim fit around the thighs but flare out around the legs. Overall a great pair of black pants, perfect for the Wanda costume.
Black women’s shoes
For the woman’s shoes, I went for a conservative loafer that I found on amazon. I bought these because I wanted a black shoe for everyday work use and still use and suit the Wanda costume. They took a while to break in but once I did they were great. They are a narrow fit which also took a while to get used to as I normally wear a wide shoe. Overall a great shoe that’s perfect for the Wanda costume
To put the final touches on the Wanda costume, we are going to need a pink wig. Like the Cosmo wig, I couldn’t find one that was made for Wanda in mind so you will have to style it yourself. the quality of the wig is very good, though, I really like how it felt and how it fitted on the head. overall a great wig that is very affordable.
Cosmo and Wanda costume fairy wands & crowns
I couldn’t find anywhere that sells the type of wands and crown used in the Cosmo and Wanda costume so I made them. I followed this tutorial which I will add below. Very easy to make and follow along and it is probably cheaper than buying the wands and crowns if they were for sale. For me, they turned out pretty good.
Cosmo and Wanda costume fairy wings
The fairy wings I got on amazon. First off these where very cheap so I wasn’t expecting a whole lot but they were ok, they did what we needed them to do. Looked great in the Cosmo and Wanda costumes.
