WHAT IS COSPLAY?
Breaking it down, the word Cosplay means 'costume-play'.
A modern craft practice enjoyed around the world, involving people who dress up
as their favourite characters from films, video games, books, anime and/or manga.
There is an abundance of talent within the global Cosplay community;
It takes time, patience and skill to successfully pull off a character and bring it to life.
Some Cosplayers prefer to construct their own costumes,
while others prefer to commission specialist designers & costumiers to construct their garments, wigs and accessories for them - either way is totally acceptable!
The Cosplay community is greatly diverse,
and those who participate usually possess unique skills, such as sewing, tailoring,
prop-making, special FX body-painting, and makeup artistry;
Some people are so good at makeup it almost seems they've changed their look by magic!
All of these creative people come together at conventions & events
to share their love & passion for the art of Cosplay.
