However, if you want to be dressed up as your favorite hero, you better make sure that the outfit looks good. A good way to enhance your cosplay costume is by adding some extra details.

For example, if you are dressing up as one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you can wear green pants and a t-shirt with their colors (blue, red and orange) and add a mask, some weapons and knee-pads.

But make sure that it is not too much like the other TMNT costumes out there! It could be better to wear green pants and an orange t-shirt in different colors. This way, only people who immediately recognize your favorite hero will notice you in the crowd of 1000s of people.


If you are dressing up as one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then it is best that you start with adding some green knee pads and gloves (not the same color as your pants, they should be green too).

Then you can start buying some basic weapons like sais or nunchucks. You could also get a weapon holder to carry two ninja swords on your back instead of carrying them in your hands along the convention floor all day long.

And if you are dressing up as Goku from Dragon Ball Z, then it is best that you add some spiky hair, a Gi and an orange headband.

Keep in mind that there are thousands of Dragon Ball Z cosplayers out there, which is why it would be best for you to wear different colors like blue instead of orange or wear green like Vegeta.

Your shoes are very important when you are dressing up as one of your favorite heroes, but they should still be comfortable to walk around the convention floor in.

For example, if you are dressing up as Assassin’s Creed character, then it would be best that you choose comfortable sneakers instead of high heels or boots that cannot fit into your cosplay costume.

There are a lot of different kinds of shoes at the convention, so it would be best that you choose a pair that can fit in with your character and feel very comfortable for you to walk around the convention all day long in.
