Even in the year of our Lord
Haruhi Madoka Aqua of 2018, not everyone is yet a fan of anime (shocking, I know!) and with Halloween just around the corner, more and more anime fans will be recycling their cosplays from the last con they attended as their Halloween costume.
But how do you blend in with the so-called “normies” crowd and what how do you explain what you’re wearing? Don’t worry, I got your back. Here’s 8 cosplay ideas and what to say when asked – without having to explain an entire series plot.
1. Enma Ai – Hell Girl
When asked: “Have you seen The Ring?”
2. Ryuk – Death Note
When asked: “I’m the Demon from that Netflix show”
3. Lucy – Elfen Lied
When asked: “I’m a sexy cat that’s also a sexy mummy”
4. Level Zero Alucard – Hellsing
When asked: “I’m [insert mainstream vampire series here (ie: Vampire Diaries, True Blood, Twilight)] but I’m also a medieval knight”
5. Gasai Yuno – Mirai Nikki
When asked: “I’m the world’s cutest murderer”
6. Hisoka – Hunter x Hunter
When asked: “Imagine a sexy Pennywise from IT”
(sidenote, I am totally sorry for that mental image)
7. Colossal Titan – Shingeki no Kyojin
When asked: “Remember that mannequin from science class?”
8. Okabe or Kurisu – Steins;Gate
When asked: This is the perfect opportunity to bust out your best impression of “MADDO SCIENTISTO”
Good luck blending in! Tell us in the comments what you’re planning to go as this Halloween.
