J-World is calling this J-Cos, and is renting out “official” costumes and wigs.

For example, Gunosy reports that one costume with a wig is 3,500 yen (US$32) for 90 minutes, while the same deal, plus a prop weapon is 4,500 yen ($41). Painless manga and anime cosplay comes at a price, it seems.

Since J-World has lots of manga-inspired locations, this might be a good place to take some snaps?
