So the Assist Cosplay story started 30 years ago in 1992 with a company called NII, which stands for Nothing Is Impossible. They are a Japanese anime good’s brand who started exploring cosplay goods in 2006. At that time there was a cosplayer on the staff who was basically overseeing the production of the cosplay items, like wigs.
Through a mutual friend, Tetsu-san of Anime Jungle reached out to Assist and in 2012, Jungle start carrying Assist products. They’ve garnered so much popularity that in 2018, the name was changed to Assist Los Angeles.
Aside from the Assist wigs, we carry a large range of their cosmetic items. A lot of their cosmetics is focused specifically for cosplayers. We have items such as to cover eyebrows and things like that, that most normal people don’t use in their everyday makeup aside.
We do also carry their wig styling products – brushes, hair spray gel and all of that is made as well in Japan. It’s formulated to work with synthetic fibers.
We carry crafting materials such as worbla and apparel like t-shirts, hats, socks, things like that. All of it is officially licensed merchandise. We really pride ourselves in having high quality and licensed materials.
