WHAT IS COSPLAY?
Just when you thought dressing up was for kids...
Wikipedia says: "Cosplay (コスプレ, kosupure), short for "costume roleplay", is a type of performance art whose participants outfit themselves, with often-elaborate costumes and accessories, as a specific character or idea. Characters are usually ... manga, anime, tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies ... J-pop, J-rock, visual kei, fantasy music stories ... novels, and objects from cyberspace or the real world that are unique and dramatic ..."
Bu's version: Cosplay is just like dressing up as a little kid. Only 1) cooler, 2) better looking, 3) with more of a point and 4) a hell of a lot more expensive. Basically, we're idiots uaing what scant money we have to make (buy, commission, what have you) costumes of characters from TV shows, anime, books, movies... Wikipedia's provided a list for you. Then we go and flaunt off our costumes at conventions and people fall at our feet saying how awesome we are.
Again, Wikipedia says: ".An anime convention is an event or gathering with a primary focus on anime, manga and Japanese culture."
It is also the place we show off our talents and look like dicks.
