Cosplayers now have a new one-stop shop when it comes to purchasing costumes, and it's called CosTrader. CosTrader is much like Etsy in that crafters can open their own stores and sell their wares, but unlike Etsy, the site is 100 percent dedicated to cosplayers. In addition to selling full costumes, CosTrader also sells wigs, props and accessories.

The site is still in its infancy, but it features a nice variety of costumes and accessories to choose from. There are costumes for gamers, anime fans and much more. Those who don't see what they want can reach out to a crafter to commission a custom order, and crafters can list as many items as they want for free. Cosplayers, no more making your own outfits out of old dresses and cardboard. Stats for Online Cosplay Marketplaces Trending: This Year & Buzzing
