Cosplay 101: Planning with the BIC® 4-Color™ pen

Although I love digital media, some things are just better on paper. Besides using Evernote, I turn to pen and paper to plan out my costumes. In my own experience, I find that drawing out the costume makes me consider each component of the costume more thoroughly. Today I wanted to give you a sneak peek at my own planning process and share a helpful tool - the BIC® 4-Color™ pen!

When BIC® approached me to talk about the 4-Color™ pen, I was thrilled! I love office supplies, paper goods, and pens - back-to-school time is my favorite - and who doesn't use pens? Right away, I realized that the 4-Color™ pen would be perfect for planning out a costume on paper.

With everything that you need to write down for a costume - materials, colors, and notes for each part - the easiest way to organize it is with color. The BIC® 4-Color™ pen includes 4 fun colors - black, blue, red, and green. This makes it super simple to distinguish your notes, color coordinate, and express whatever you want. BIC® has created unique personalities for each of the colors in the pen that you can get to know in the videos below (I'd definitely say I'm most like Green - he's a social network loving foodie!).

I used my BIC® 4-Color™ pen to plan out my Codex costume. Black and red were perfect colors to draw out the details of her costume. I used green for detailing on her staff (sorry, Green, I'm not used to green ink!). I chose to use blue for my notes since the costume doesn't have any blue in it - that way, they would stand out. It worked out perfectly. I love how easy it is to see each component of the costume.

Having 4 Inseparable Colors in 1 Pen makes the planning process of cosplay a breeze! If you want to try out the BIC® 4-Color™ pen, get your own at Amazon or Staples. The four different personalities have been taking social media by storm - follow along with Facebook and Twitter to see them in action and for a chance to win your own 4-Color™ pen.
