Chiaki Nanami Cosplay

Chiaki Nanami Cosplay Review – Easy Cosplay!

At this point on my cosplay journey, I pretty much need cosplay to be easy on me in the sense of creation, or I won’t be able to pull it off. So, that being said, I am super thankful for the world of Amazon and all the amazing cosplay that they carry (with prime shipping too!) because while you might not expect any of it to be good.. sometimes it actually is. When I wanted to do a quick Chiaki Nanami Cosplay, amazon pretty much held my hand the whole way. How nice of them.

Chiaki Nanami Cosplay – The Wig

Chiaki has a purple-ish grey-ish tone to her hair, and it can be a little tough to find a wig that matches the actual tone of her hair. I found a wig on amazon that really nailed the color, and I was super happy that I did. I bought this wig.

In the picture on amazon, it looks like the ends of the wig really curve out and up, which would be great because Chiaki’s hair really flips out at the ends. It would be lovely if the wig came exactly as pictured but it needed some love once it arrived. Color was spot on, but the actual styling of the wig was a little on the misleading side. Be prepared to style her just a little to get it just right.

Once I got the wig styled, it pretty much was perfect (thanks Adrien for all the help!) <3

I really found the wig to be soft and easy to wear, and for the price, a pretty good wig! I’ll definitely wear this again in the future when I cosplay Chiaki, so it’s definitely not a wig you’re only going to get one wear out of. Score.

Chiaki Nanami Cosplay – The Uniform

Chiaki’s outfit is pretty simple, with a button down blouse, skirt, jacket, and some stockings.Again, Amazon was able to make my life super simple because I was able to track down an entire cosplay for her for under $70. It almost seemed too good to be true.

I am one of those people who becomes suspicious of amazon items that have all 5 star reviews. Is there bot rating the items? People being paid to review? Who knows. All I know is I am way more comfortable ordering an item with 4.7 stars as opposed to 5. I’m just critical I guess.

I digress.

When the cosplay arrived in the mail, I was pretty much stunned to say the least. This cosplay is BEAUTIFUL. Details are embroidered on, the fabrics are nice and heavy, and everything is super comfortable to wear. I was shocked at how nice the jacket was, even though I’m a little sad that it doesn’t have any pockets. The Super High School Level Gamer would have pockets on her jacket, and I want them too. Ugh! But seriously, pockets would have made this even better, but the jacket is great.

There was a little bit of bleeding from the black stripe on the top onto my skin after wearing the cosplay all day, but really that was no big deal. I wore it for a little over 12 hours, and with that amount of time, something is bound to happen.

A pretty nice cosplay if I do say so myself.

Overall, the cosplay itself is probably one of the nicer I’ve seen in a while, and for the price that I paid, it’s pretty unheard of. When you see prices like that for everything that I got you tend to worry just a little bit, but for once, I had good luck on my side. I would give this cosplay 5 stars too (and I did!)

So.. if you’re thinking about doing a Chiaki Nanami cosplay anytime soon..

Seriously consider the one above and save yourself the frustration and time waiting that you might have with other sites. This baby is on prime, and by some odd chance it doesn’t work out for you, just send it back. That’s the beauty of online shopping. The human interaction can be as little as you’d like. Hooray for that on some days!

Overall, I had a blast getting to be Chiaki for the day and getting to spend some much needed time with my wonderful, amazing, incredible con family (if you guys ever stumble onto this, know I love you lots!) and get in some of that retail therapy.

Shes so cute I could literally die.

  1. The wig for Chiaki looks really cute on you! I have purchased some pretty decent cosplay wigs on Amazon myself. It’s awesome that you were able to get the cosplay for under $70. I thought it’d be around $100+. I love whenever I find deals on cosplay too since it can be so expensive to find decent quality cosplays at an affordable price. BTW you look super cute in your cosplay!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. It’s dressing up as characters that you admire. Some people like to act as their characters (I’m not one) and you often wear them to conventions where other people are dressed up too!
