So after procrastinating for almost half a year, I caved and decided to get some CosCards printed.
If you haven’t guessed already, the word CosCard is an amalgamation of Cosplayer and Calling Card.
CosCards often feature said cosplayer in a defining costume and pose, and include both contact information, and sometimes interesting bits of trivia. Designs also tend to be personalized, either for the cosplayer, or the story the character is from.
CosCards are more than just a novelty. They’re handed out at cons to photographers, by way of introduction to new cosplay friends, and even traded, just as if they were cards from a collectible trading card game.
It just so happens that I’ve made a limited stack of CosCards, printed on matt paper with a linen finish that I’m giving out to readers of my blog, so if you want one, leave a comment, and we’ll figure out how to send you one in the mail.
And if you live overseas, I’d love to hear from you too. I’m always keen to make friends with cosplayers from other countries and cultures, so let’s do an exchange, alright? XD
Also, for those peeps who might be wondering where I got my CosCards printed, it’s at Leadership Trading and Supply (No. 1 Sophia Road, #01-51 Peace Centre, Singapore 228149).
They’re reasonably priced, and the quality’s pretty amazing. If you’re looking to print your own CosCards, and if your stuff’s already been shopped and sized (the standard size for a name card is 9 cm x 5.5 cm, by the way), you can even get it done in under an hour!
How cool is that?
Until tomorrow, cheerio! XD
