Hey guys, does anybody know what happened with the cosplay-figures-and-cosplay store in the Akihabara Corner past K-books, the one right here?

I walked past the other day and the building was empty, no store, nothing. Has it moved? Or is it shut down for good? It was such a neat shop for cheap, basic cosplay (╥﹏╥)

ACOS is carrying the cape and women's leg tights, but I believe that's about it at the moment.

Maybe worth poking your head in some of the places that carry used costumes. Might get lucky. Most people are probably getting their stuff online though is my guess.

Tsumanne, do you have any recommendations for any cheap, good quality photo studios catered for cosplaying? I've found a bunch but they are all ridiculously priced.

Naruto cosplay??

Hi, I have a question. Please answer ASAP
Do any of these stores sell some Naruto cosplay costumes (like sakura, hinata, sasuke)... I visited some of the websites and either could not find them or couldn't understand Japanese o-0.
Ty!!

Finally got the opportunity to update the store list. I must apologize for my recent neglect, but I've spent the greater portion of the past two years in the middle east. But I was in Tokyo on business in March so I made it a point to run around and check up on stores. Lots of changes. An entire building was missing for one lol. Lots of closures, but also quite a few new stores. So it balances out.

Seems stores are having a difficult time competing with the Chinese and South East Asian online cosplay markets. Something we've predicted for some time now, but the Japanese market is still competitive. Overall quality of costumes has certainly increased. Japan seems to know that there is little point in challenging Chinese prices so a greater focus on quality appears to be the new strategy and the second-hand cosplay market is thriving.
