Cosplaying is definitely becoming big in other countries besides Japan.
Many of us want to become some of our favorite anime, vocaloid, gaming, comic, manga, movie, and cartoon characters.
Cosplaying lets a person bring a character to life. Let’s a person become someone else and recreate a life that is not their own.
I love going to conventions and Japanese festivals seeing many men, women and children dressed up as characters. It brings a since of community. We all are here doing the same thing without feeling awkward or judged.
Some of my favorite cosplayers are Yaya Han, Spiral Cats, and Alodia Gosiengfiao. They make a living doing cosplay.
I’ve recently started Cosplaying and definitely want to become more involved. My 2016 resolution is to attend more conventions and festivals so I can continue to cosplay.
As for creating a costume I buy mine. I am not creative enough to create one. There are many out there that can. The work they put into detail are amazing. Creating the outfit, accessories and the weapon (if character has one) is very tedious. Creating their accessories and weapons out of materials you would have never thought of. I applaud the true cosplayers out there. I admire your work and I am a huge fan of all of you.
Who have or who do you want to cosplay????
