The Cosplayer’s Guide: Black Friday 2017

It’s that time of year again, the holidays are creeping closer and that means sales galore. If you are searching for some deals to make your crafting cheaper heading into the new year here is the low down on black friday for all things cosplay. While this is what I’ve tracked down, if you find a good cosplay related sale please comment below or tweet me @catchans so I can keep the list this year up to date.

Fabric & Craft Stores

Beauty & Makeup





My personal top picks and tips for cosplayers looking to score big savings on Black Friday are:

  • Lowe’s 28 piece Dremel kit for $49
  • Ulta 40% off select Anastasia glow kits
  • Ulta Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss for $12 (if you need a glitter eye shadow for magical girls & Idols)
  • For beginner sewers Joann’s has a Singer sewing maching on sale for $69.99 (doorbuster)
  • For advanced sewers Joann’s has a Viking Jade 20 Sewing Machine on sale for $499.99 (doorbuster)
  • Joann’s has a couple of Cricket circut cutters for $100 off retail (doorbuster)
  • Joann’s has 60% off apparel fabrics and pellon interfacing on Saturday and Sunday (doorbuster)
  • Check your local con’s social media to see if they are running any pre-reg sales during the weekend
  • Tandy Leather has a 1 per customer Veg Tanned leather side for $39.99

If you are planning to brave sales in store try finding a shopping buddy so you can divide and conquer. Luckily a lot of these sales are available online as well so you can purchase all of your supplies from the comfort of your stretchy pants. Good luck may the force be with you and may the gods be ever in your favor!
