The term Cosplay is short for ‘costume play’ which is basically the art of impersonating famous movie, cartoon, comic or television characters by wearing elaborate costumes and accessories just like them. Cosplayers present themselves as a specific character and act & behave in a manner similar to the chosen character. Cosplay traces its origins to Japan and therefore most of the characters are inspired from Japanese and East Asian media, including anime, graphic novels, manga, comic books and video games. Other inspirations include movies, fantasy music stories, Visual Kei and unique objects from cyberspace that are capable of creating a dramatic effect.
