Me and Hasen have been always wanting to go on an outing together
Because we both was so busy, we had to keep delaying it.
But today we finally decided to go to dongaemun and otaku heaven searching in korea! ( ´∀`)
Okay, It was my idea to go to dongdaemun fabric market just because I wanted to find some cloth for my future plans. Lucky hasen was around to help me translate my korean with the seller.
I LOVE THE FABRICS HERE SO MUCH!!!
ITS LIKE THE IDEAL CLOTH I WANT AND THE COLOR IS LIKE 90 SIMILIAR TO THE ACTUAL DESIGN!!!!
ｷﾀ━━━ヽ(∀ﾟ )人(ﾟ∀ﾟ)人( ﾟ∀)人(∀ﾟ )人(ﾟ∀ﾟ)人( ﾟ∀)ノ━━━ !!!
Its very very much a cosplayer heaven in korea!
There is so many choices and shops and one could really get lost in a labyrinth of fabrics @w@ |||
different floors sell different stuff, you can get diy necklace goods on the highest floor and then zippers/ lace/ furr etc. on the lowest.
They are so friggin blessed ! So many cloth can do so many nice characters and props!!!
but because there is soooo many choices, one would get confused on what they really want (´ﾍ｀；)
Anyway buying some fabric in dongdaemun fabric market!
After that, We had lunch at lotteria together oh yeahhh
hasen nim (she can really eat ! ) ( ; ﾟДﾟ)
After lunch, we hurried back to dongdaemun because i realized I forgotten to get touyas bag cloth as well as kyouheis bag cloth so that i can modify.
Sadly, most of the fabric shops close by 3pm =(
So we gave up,
but she brought me to this famous wig shop in korea (which is also located in dongdaemun) ,
the name is Twins
where most cosplayers in Korea get their wigs from !
EVEN EKI HOLIC GETS HER WIG HERE!!!!
The quality is categorized into two different types which is normal and high quality
high quality wigs feels smoother and the price ranges from 30,000 won onwards.
When you buy the wig, they come with a free trimming and styling service =D
what more is the ajuma and ajushi is very friendly!!!
they treat me to free apple juice Q//w//Q
One thing good about wig shops than internet is that you can compare color in reality =D
you will not have to worry about the oclor differences of the actual item and the one on the net !
They also accept premade wigs as well.
서울시 중구 신당동 773번지 맥스타일 지하2층 21호,22호

We went to the manga /manhwa shop located at a basement (which is not very far away from the station)

Most of the mangas here and manhwas here is obviously in korean.
They sell webtoons here published in books and very little doujinshis and official japanese/american art books around.
