So I'm in Korea right now (i'm korean), and I thought that i might take the opportunity to take advantage of some of they cosplay stuff they have here (even though it's not as much as I'd hoped.)

I stumbled upon a site called Hellowshop.
Has anyone ordered from here?
How is it?
Know any other stores?

You should definitely check out 동대문 (Dongdaemun), it's basically a huge fabric market.

If you're talking about the costume itself, check out cosplay communities like Moolpas (http://cafe.naver.com/moolpas), there's a lot of stuff being sold/bought.

Hope you find a good one~

I've been asking my parents to take me to Dongdaemun but they're too lazy to take me anywhere besides places with family. D:

Dongdemun is *amazing*, but I was pretty overwhelmed when I went there. There's also a great wig store in Doota (Doosan Tower, I think) on the 5th floor, called hair heaven.
I've heard there's a store around somewhere that sells and rents complete costumes, but I don't know where exactly it is.

And the subway system here rocks, I love how logically it's laid out. Just go by yourself!

http://sopoommall.co.kr/ is such a great online market for Japanese style cosplaying.

here's an example;

Hi hi, new here~
I've been shopping around here and there in Korea, and might be able to help.
It depends on how much you're willing to spend, and what you're looking for.
HellowShop that was mentioned is one of the cheaper stores, but there's also commision-type stores that cost quite a bit more, and these shops are more focoused on the costumes more than props and etc.
Tell me what kind of things you're looking for, and I'll PM you the links.
Tried posting all of it here yesterday, but doesnt seem to work? =-=;;
Wonder why...
If not, I'll try to post the links here again.

well I actually went to Hellowshop.. XD I rented a costume for Halloween..
the people there were really nice.. and it seemed like a lot of people were there
to like pick up their costumes and such...
it seemed like they knew what they were doing.. and such..
and also I get to touch some of the costumes... and most of them were high quality..
at least the ones I've touched.. X3 not sure about the others..

so I highly recommend that site.. XD it's decent.. although I'm in search for some better sites.. I'll let u know if I find any~~ XD

okay, I have a question. Anyone know any korean online sites in english? Cosplaying or not, I need to order things and can't have it shipped from the US, takes too long... and the shipping kills.

Hey, is that hellowshop located in Seoul? Can you get the address. I am still trying to figure out if it is or not.

@Animangafreak: I shopped from about a dozen online cosplay stores, and unfortunately, none of them were available in English...

@toast_genius: Yep! It's in Seoul. If you can read Korean, go to hellowshop (www.hellowshop.com), click on "찾아오시는길" on the red bar at the bottom of the website. They have a map~~~

OOOH if anyone's interested... If you're cosplaying uniforms (school, military, suits), Mil-Shop (http://shopmil.ivyro.net)'s great!!
(Just had to say it because I love that shop >w<)

Or if anyone crossplays, Cople (http://www.cople.co.kr/) has okay-ish compression vests.

AAANNDD if anyone has certain things they want, I'll try to post the shops that have them.
(I know a good wig shop, but they run on a blog-based site, so might be harder to shop from for foreigners. Called WigMania I think?)
Or like I said, I'll send the links to aaaaall the shops I know lol.

Hello!

I'm currently in korea and wanted to ask, if anybody knows a online shop, that sells some "TERA Online" Costumes in very good quality? It seems to be a pretty famous computer game ^^

Any ideas?
