Costume Crunch Part 2

Just as I promised, the part two to Costume Crunch! The cheaper version!

Perhaps you’re your going to Comikaze? Maybe a Halloween party… It’s a costume you’ve been wanting forever but sacrificing rent on it may not be you;re best idea.

I leave here with you a link, a link of great importance. Cosplay Show is your source for cheap costumes, made well. Their price ranges from 7.99 to 200.00, but don’t let that daunt you. They always have new things going on sale, so if the one you want is just out of reach, wait a minute. It could go on sale tomorrow…

But you still should check it out, drool a little even. I won’t judge, we’ve all been there…
