Cosplay Photoshoot Complex Is Dream Come True

Untitled 
Haco Stadium Cosplay Complex is a 33 room paradise for cosplayers and photographers alike, existing in two locations- Haco Stadium Tokyo (located in Chiba) and Haco Stadium Osaka. The photo above is just the Japanese high school setting, but the complex features everything from Sci-Fi, Medieval, Vocoloid/Idol inspired rooms, to classy victorian settings, castle-esque settings and much much more. 

We'll take a quick walk through some examples of the rooms at the complex. 
Please forgive the blurry quality of the photos, most of them available from the Haco Stadium Complex are small. x_x

Cosplay supply shops and a cafe exist on the premises, however they don't sell full cosplay sets.

The place is amazing, equipped with areas built for styling, lockers, changing rooms and more for all cosplay needs. 

 8 zones split up into various settings related to cafe's, housing, fantasy, Japanese, school, world, other dimension, and standard.

All of those possibilities! XD The studio is said to not be private, so the areas are all based on first come first serve. 
Tickets include the free two-hour rental of an SLR camera with an extra 500 yen getting you the camera for the whole day. (If you don't already have your own.) 

I've read that things like slippers, tripods and blankets also come free of charge. ^^ Skimpy cosplays can get cold so anyone sporting them will want to take care not to catch a cold! 

You can also find props like swords, guns, and more- the staff is also available to help assist with photoshoots as well if need be. 
They really seem to try and cover all your needs- even if you're having a blast and run out of memory they sell 8GB cards for 1200 yen, which is roughly about $10 USD. 

Since the settings are all first come first serve, Haco Stadium asks that visitors don't completely monopolize rooms for too much time to allow everyone to get a chance. 

With 33 rooms and multiple settings and opportunities abound, I could see spending all day- if not days trying different experiments shooting hundreds of different character cosplays. 

Feel free to browse the complex more in-depth at their website here.
