There are many cosplay-related shops in Akihabara, but Polka*Polka is unique in that the manager is a former cosplayer, idol and actor. Needless to say, she's an expert when it comes to costuming. If you need some tips on how to coordinate your cosplay, this is the place.
Though the stairs leading up to Polka*Polka may look dim and narrow, once you arrive, you'll find yourself in a bright room full of costumes, each of which is arranged neatly by anime.
Are these costumes?
“If you have any questions about costumes, such as how to wear, display and maintain them, please do not hesitate to ask," said the manager. The shop has a warm and cozy feeling, and the manager is always happy to talk.
You can try these wigs on. If you find something you want to try on, just ask.
These may look delicious, but they're not actually edible! However, they may be a nice fashion accessory or a unique souvenir for your friends.
Polka*Polka also has a selection of larger-sized costumes, perfect for non-Japanese body types. Whether you're a cosplay vet or just starting out, give Polka*Polka a try!
