The Best Closet Cosplays

The beauty of cosplaying is that cosplayers come in all shapes and sizes. There are some characters that require some serious manhours to complete while others can come together by going through your closet for components. It doesn’t matter how you get to the final look, only that you do. You don’t have to jump straight to sewing machines and heat guns to start cosplaying. Get your toes wet by finding the components around your house or at a thrift store.

We scoured Instagram looking for some awesome #closetcosplays and boy did you all not disappoint. Here’s a look at some of our favorites side-by-side with the character they were cosplaying as. We hope this post helps inspire you to head to your closet to create your own cosplay. Or, if you’re looking for an easy look, browse our inventory of new costumes to wear to your next convention!

Missandei was loyal to Daenerys and her quest until the bitter end. Who wouldn’t want to suit up as this fierce female this year?

No one wanted to mess with this fierce female on the playground. With her talent for art and her love of wrestling, we stan Spinelli.

If you’re on a quest to catch ’em all, there’s no better character to dress up as than Ash Ketchum. As long as you have the main components, you can create a cosplay in any style as Jeremy did with his pop-punk Ash.

Patrick Star from Spongebob Squarepants

That moment when you realize you’re the Patrick of your friend group. Embrace it with a costume!

Can you feel the 90s nostalgia? Max went to great lengths to impress Roxanne but little did he know she already liked him for his laugh.

Cosmo, Wanda & More from The Fairly Odd Parents

Raise your hand if you wanted your own pair of fairy godparents after seeing all the fun Timmy Turner was having with Cosmo and Wanda?

There’s no denying that Carol Danvers kicks some major bad guy butt. We can’t wait to see what’s next for Captain Marvel!

You won’t have to pull off any stunts to emulate Rod Kimble but maybe just have your safe word ready incase you decide to tempt fate.

Gohan from Dragon Ball Z

There are no age limits when it comes to cosplaying. If Tai can look this fierce, you can too!
