I don't do traditional Black Friday -- it's far too overwhelming for me! -- but I love shopping online sales. I'm planning to stock up on some much-needed cosplay supplies, like wigs for upcoming costumes and circle lenses for the next year. I've gathered some of the best deals for cosplayers and geeks of all kinds!
Lots of these deals start early and last all weekend, or change throughout the weekend, so keep an eye on your favorite shops to see if there are any awesome deals.
