The World of Cosplay
Imagine a world where every day you dress up as your favorite pop-culture characters. Every day you are something different. One day you are Wonder Women from the DC Universe. The next day you are Alice in Wonderland.
Follow me down this rabbit hole as we explore the world of Steampunk Cosplay.
Cosplay literally means "Costume Play", and it is exactly what it sounds like!
It was inspired by the practice then-known as fan costuming at science fiction conventions, beginning with the 1st World Science Fiction Convention in New York City in 1939. Today, cosplay has grown to be a world wide phenomenon.
If you know anything about Hattast-ique, it's that we love Steampunk!
This culture has been one of our greatest inspirations as a family business.
The world of steampunk has allowed our imagination to run wild!
When you combine steampunk with cosplay, the creativity is limitless.
Hattast-ique Steampunk Cosplay
Because of our love for steampunk, we have a unique collection of products that we carry. We may not have all of your cosplay needs just yet, but we can definitely spice up your outfit with some fine accessories. Everything from a top notch top hat all the way to leather beverage holsters and simple wristbands. We're even making pauldrons (shoulder guards!) now! Isn't that Hattast-ique?
As our imaginations reach all corners of the world, it won't be long until the reality of the future is our present moment. I imagine a future with flying cars, elevated cities, a world of peace and of course high steampunk fashion.
What is the future you create?
We have a lot to look forward to this summer. We have plans to make and costumes to create. There will be time spent at home and time spent on the road. We will spend time with family and be reunited with friends.
And at the end of it all... to end the summer with a bang...
We will be attending the 31st Annual Dragon Con! We are so excited about this opportunity! More info about this adventure coming soon!
As we plan for Dragon Con and as we put together our own cosplay costumes, it'll be interesting to see where our creativity will take us!
Always perfectly topped off,
