COStume MODE Magazine (COSMODE) is a Japanese-language magazine about cosplay. Each issue contains color images of cosplayers from conventions and various events. It also includes information and hints on costume construction, hair styling, makeup and other cosplay-related tips.

In 2008, COSMODE Online, a digitalized English version of COSMODE magazine, was created in response to the growing cosplay culture.
