Anime Cosplays Even Broke Bitches Can Try

January 10, 2022

 If you have been watching anime for a long time or you’re a beginner, eventually the cosplay bug will hit you, but your bank account might not get the memo. After reading this article, There’s no reason why you should wear jeans and a t-shirt to a comic con because the floor is the bar for these cosplay ideas. 

1. Go as Luffy

Why? All you need is a redshirt, just remember to cut the hands and pair it with stonewashed blue jeans shorts and a straw hat. Everyone might judge you for being a  fan of that long ass anime, but they go dey alright. 

2. L from Death note

He wears a white long sleeve and jeans, that’s an easy cosplay since you’ll most likely have those in your wardrobe. To nail this look though, make sure you always sit with your knees against your body as he does and randomly keep your thumb close to your mouth. Bonus points if you carry a plate filled with cake. 

3. Yato from Noragami

If you are not the kind of person that wears tracksuits -and honestly no one should be- you might have to buy this one.  You’d need a white t-shirt and could use an old white shirt as a scarf.  The problem now is that ugly ass boot he wears. Luckily, Nigerians sell the weirdest things.  Finding affordable cowboy boots will be easy.  

4. Killua from Hunter X Hunter

For this cosplay, you’ll need a blue turtleneck long sleeve, a white v-neck t-shirt and grey shorts. You could bleach your hair white, and for the final touch, you must make all your entire family skilled assassins. 

5. Karasuno’s Team Uniforms

In Haikyuu, the high school volleyball players wear orange and black sports uniforms. To create this look you can thrift any black and orange jersey that you like, black kneepads, hold a ball and of course, wear sports shoes.

6. Kids from the promised neverland 

 These kids have a very simple outfit that consists of simple white collared shirts paired with white pants or a pleated skirt. To achieve the look of any specific character though, you’d have to use the character’s respective wig and number on the neck.  You’d wear plain clothes too if you had to die. 

7. Gojo from  Jujutsu Kaisen

Gojo’s outfit should be easy enough to find since it’s a plain black high-necked jacket with matching black pants, check your dad’s wardrobe maybe? You can always dye a white handkerchief black and tie it around your head. It would be a plus to bleach your hair white and behave like a millennial that thinks he’s GenZ.

While Nigerian songs are great for many, many reasons, songwriting is rarely ever one of them. That, however, doesn’t mean our artists are incapable of penning lyrics that end up being noteworthy and vital to the culture. So, from Wizkid’s supposedly missing ad-lib on “Totori” to Burna Boy’s inspirational threat on “Anybody”, here are 9 […]
