What did you download today?

No GravatarIf you’re anything like me, you have bookmarks filled with every website imaginable, divided into categories like Cosplay, Figure Sellers, Video Game Importers, and etc. constantly checking them to see if there are some sweet deals to take advantage of. I realize not everyone is this incredibly cheap and many look forward to Black Friday and Cyber Monday to get their discounted goods without much hassle. However it can be easy to overlook places with good deals if one is not aware of them, and this is where I come in.

Epic Cosplay Wigs

There are many wig sellers 0n the Internet, but the wigs of this seller are high quality and can be styled with everything from hair spray to hot irons without getting damaged. With the code EPICFRIDAY you get 20% your order storewide. Cosplay Wigs USA has a similar promotion with 20% the entire order. This is where Epic Cosplay has the advantage, their code not only gives 20% off their regular priced products but when you buy wigs from their Red Hot Sale corner you get 50% off! The website also offers free shipping in the US no matter what you bought, which makes this the perfect opportunity for cosplayers to get the wigs they need.


Some of the wigs on sale are a short black wig which can be used for many characters and a long medium blue wig perfect for a certain otaku from Lucky Star.


J-List Sale

J-LIST or its SFW version J-BOX is a reputable but somewhat expensive site. It’s interesting how I constantly find figures I know I can find for cheaper elsewhere while other times I find amazing deals. But this online retailer is far from just a figure website as it sells all kinds of products from Japan, such as bento, candy, and kimonos. It also sells otaku items such as body pillows, plushes, manga, and mousepads. Right now, most of their items will have 12% off their cost, and some items have been discounted up to 50% off. If you’re looking to treat yourself take advantage of this opportunity, you’ll have fun browsing through their selection of products and might even end up getting something you didn’t know you needed.

HobbyLink Japan

This is a great website for figure collectors and contains everything from anime figures, to military vehicle model kits, to action figures from tokusatsu shows. They’re having a Black Friday sale ending Monday at midnight on all their already discounted items, resulting in items with ridiculous discounts like 80% off. Their selection of items on sale is not very big, but with the prices they currently have it’s worth checking out.


Oh how can anybody forget Steam, but there are some people unaware of this wonderful company. Today is your lucky day if you didn’t know about them because it’s Autumn Sale 2013. Many games have been ridiculously discounted, some up to 80% off! This is the best sale on digital downloads going on, make sure to take advantage of it. Some discounted games include:

  • Far Cry 3
  • Portal 2
  • Bioshock Infinite

As well as many other big games and underrated indie titles.
