For these past few years, I never knew that our very own Zambian people were selling anime and cosplay related items, from the small details such as the Sasuke eye contact lenses and swords to the large detailed outfits such as the full Luffy cosplay from One Piece until I got to do some deep investigations online and found some local online stores.

I started breaking out of my introverted shell (‘breaking shell’ still in the process by the way), I found out that there were actually vendors that sell anime merchandise (mostly selling Jewellery and t-shirts) at different events. So if you are the type of person that doesn’t trust worldwide shipping from other countries like me, well, this article is for you.

As I have done my research together with the help from friends and other people (thank you so much by the way!) Here are some of the Online and physical stores from which you can shop till you drop!
