SINGAPORE -- IKEA Singapore did a closet makeover for Frank, a local civil servant and an avid cosplayer -- someone who wears costumes or accessories based on characters from popular comic books, films or anime as performance art. His new organized space included a wardrobe system for costumes, boxes for his cosplay shoes, and a wall cabinet for collectibles.

Also featured in this IKEA video is Frank's mother who seemed to have no idea just how many costumes he had collected over the past seven years and tucked away in his room. In fact, it was so many that he could only store remnants of some of the larger, robot costumes.

That's were IKEA stepped in and installed its PAX wardrobe to organize his clothing and cosplay costumes, SKUBB boxes to store his cosplay shoes, KOMPLEMENT pull-out multi-use hanger for his ties and BESTÅ wall cabinet to showcase his collectibles.

Now Frank has more space...for even more costumes. Great news with the 2014 World Cosplay Summit set for August in Portugal.
