Exclamation American Based Cosplay that can ship in a week?

I ran out of time and my cosplay is unfinished but I don't want to go to the convention without a costume and since I can't seem to find anyone my size to buy a second hand one, I was wondering if anyone knew any us based stores that make premade costumes that can be shipped and arrive in under 8 days.

The only thing I can see outside of a halloween store (which likely does not have what you want, or if so, nowhere near anything good quality), are places like ebay, etsy, the marketplace here, or anywhere else that people post used cosplays. I don't believe there are any cosplay warehouses in the US.

I actually recently bought an Attack on Titan jacket on Sept 24 and it came on the 27. This was from an eBay seller. I'm am sure that they are based in China but they shipped from California.

Check out the Cosplay.com Marketplace. I can absolutely ship out ASAP *points to link in signature* and I'm sure that many other people who post on there would be willing to do so also.

You've still got a week- are you way too busy to spend any time, even any of your other-spent leisure time. continuing to try and finish? If you even have just a few hours a day at most you can definitely get some more done. I dont normally advocate quick fixes like hot glue or not finishing seams, but if you just REALLY WANT IT DONE ASAP, you can get it to the point it'll hold together for the con and fix it later.

I think RightStuff.com has cosplay costumes. They're based in Joliet, IL, so shipping should be fast.

What costume are you doing? You may find success on Etsy but you're going to have to pay out the nose for rush shipping. The problem is that most costume makers don't have enough turnover to have pre-made costumes ready to go.

Thanks for the correction. I was wrong on the spelling, but also on which store! AnimeStuffStore.com is in Joliet, IL and has cosplay! I always get RightStuf and AnimeStuffStore mixed up.
