Thank you so much! ♥
Actually my favourites so far are as follows:
Cospatio: There's one in Shibuya. I don't know if it's a big one or a small one, but it has lots of useful things in it, as well as fully finished costumes (but they are WOAH way expensive). There's also a Cospa in Shibuya.
Cyperous wigs: I just found out there's one in Tokyo, in.. Kanda, if I recall correctly? Cyperous wigs are expensive for cosplay wigs, but they are hands-down the best wigs you will ever work with for costumes. They can also be styled using straighteners and curlers.
Maple wigs: In Nippori (see notes about Nippori below). Not as expensive as Cyperous, but another range of wigs made with cosplay in mind. They come in heaps of colours and styles, and the salespeople are really friendly.
Nippori: It's a district, not a store, but it's Tokyo's fabric district, and I spent a lot of time doing the happy boogy dance when I found it. Lots of fabric! Lots of buttons! Maybe not so exciting for someone from a country with more fabric selection than mine (Australia), but well, it made me happy.
I know there's a lot more than I'm aware of, but those are the places I know, and I can vouch for them all as being quality places with good stuff in them. I don't like Akihabara (at ALL), so I don't go there for my cosplay stuff if I can help it, though...
