"The Art of COSPLAY"

COSPLAY? A COSPLAY is a short term for the word “costume play”. From the word costume meaning a dress or clothing which commonly used to conceals an identity and suffixed with a word play which is to have fun. So, meaning you’re clothing or dressing yourself to have fun, which is the main goal of the COSPLAY. To have fun! The common costumes that these COSPLAYERS are mimicking are animes, cartoon character, movie character, and even computer game characters. They don’t just actually mimic the costume but also the character they are portraying.

COSPLAY is also considered as an art. Why? Well for me making such costume requires an artistic talent that these COSPLAYERS have. The way they render the colors and choice of materials is something that an artist do but the only thing is that they to life when the event starts.
