COSTUMES | GUIDES

Cosplay is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game. Cosplayers love building their own costumes and sometimes invent their own original characters. But the most fun part of cosplay is the community of like-minded nerds who celebrate your character and costume with you. Most cosplayers attend conventions where you will find a welcoming spirit of inclusion and unique experiences. Cosplay is drinking at hotel bars with strangers in costume. Cosplay is taking pictures with people dressed as the same character as you. Cosplay is creating impromptu scenes when you cross paths with your character’s villain. Cosplay is pulling together a costume the night before and having everyone see the character. Cosplay is answering “yes” when a wide-eyed child hugs you and asks if you really are their princess. Cosplay is a family of believers who love stories and characters.
