What’s the secret to a totally cool, captivating, and off-the-charts creative cosplay costume? Magnets!
That’s right. When you sew strong neodymium magnets into your costumes, you get a secure adjustable hold for all of your costume's various parts and pieces. This includes your pants, shirts, vests, coats, capes, other components, and headwear.
Instead of relying on belts, snaps, scotch tape, duct tape and buttons to fasten the various elements of your ensemble, you can sew special sewing magnets into your parts and pieces as closures, fasteners, and attachment devices.
Plus, you get quick on-and-off convenience as opposed to the time-consuming task of laboriously buttoning and unbuttoning or snapping and unsnapping your multiple closures to get in and out of your cosplay costume.
Why sewing magnets are now sew popular.
Neodymium magnets in costumes have become a smash hit on Broadway, as well as in various other stage and show performances around the globe. This is because, as we mentioned above, all you have to do is snap in and out of your costume. No fuss, no muss.
You don’t think those pre-revolutionary war players in the play Hamilton have to button and unbutton all those gazillion buttons on the front of their waistcoats do you? What a pain.
Magnets are now making the scene because they’re washable. They don’t break or come apart or need to be sewn back in like buttons, snaps, and other traditional closures.
Magnets aren’t hard to button or attach like regular shirt or pants buttons which often require patience and dexterity not normally found in older, sometimes arthritic, hands.
Sewing magnets make getting dressed and undressed so much easier - and so much faster - that most all theatrical and stage productions companies are using them in their wardrobes. Plus, many clothing lines are now also integrating magnets into their outfits to provide the simple, secure, on-off ease many older customers want.
So when you’re ready to suit up and play the part, try sewing magnets as attachments in your ensemble, and see how magnetic and attractive your made-up get-up can really be.
