On today’s list is a cosplay I never really wanted to have because I don’t particularly like it and I don’t think it really fits Clara’s style. However, I found the jumper cheap, so it was hard to really resist. Besides, ITFOTN is a cosplay that is very easy to recreate for a little cosplay shoot at home for someone who lives right on the edge of a forest.
The jumper isn’t exactly rare, but it can take a while to find it among all the other Topshop jumpers. I believe that if you actually go looking for it, you’ll own it in a matter of weeks, but I came across mine more by accident than anything else while I was looking for a different size of the hybrid jumper. I’ve seen the jumper on basically every platform by now and depending on whether the seller is another cosplayer, the price starts at about £5. Cheap and easy to get – how can a cosplayer resist?
Even though the material is stretchy, I would advise you to either buy your regular size or size up as it runs a tad small especially around the bust. The material feels kind of weird to the touch. Not in a bad way, but if you stretch the jumper, it sort of crackles a little. However, it is quite soft and feels nice on your skin, so that’s another plus for the Topshop Space Dye Jumper.
It is made from 74% viscose, 19% polyamide, 5% wool and 2% elastane.
I would probably wear this jumper outside of cosplay if it wasn’t cropped, but as it is, I just don’t really wear it at all because I like keeping my back warm. However, it’s a cosplay item that is quite cheap and easy to come by and if you’re like me and live in the countryside, you can just go to the nearest patch of green and take a few effortless cosplay photos in it. For that, it is really quite practical.
