Many people find cosplays fun. The word "cosplay" is a contraction of the Japanese word for "costume play
", in which participants don costumes and dress to look like cartoon characters, video and role-playing, fantasy and science fiction stories, and sometimes live action. In Japan, some people who engage in cosplays dress up as a popular J-pop (Japanese pop) or J-rock (Japanese rock) artists.
Most anime and comics conventions cosplay events have worked in their program to meet people who love to cosplay. There is no real point cosplay, people dress as their favorite characters for the sake of dressing like them. When they meet at cosplay events, they spend most of their time in their costumes to show detail and depth, see costumes worn by the other participants, and take pictures. The guest list is funny events, even if they are crazy, outrageous, and sometimes downright bizarre.
Deciding what costume to wear on a cosplay
So if you go to a cosplay and it's the first time to participate in one, how do you know what costume you will wear? Firstly, you must know what type of cosplay becomes. Will it be a purely anime or manga (Japanese comic book) cosplay? This is a fantasy or science fiction convention? What is the theme of the event cosplay? Knowing this in advance will definitely help you narrow your choices about what costume to wear to the event. It will also save you the embarrassment of being present and being completely irrelevant, like going to a cosplay event as a sign from the Lord of the Rings at a cosplay event Star Trek.
Once you have decided the theme of the event, cosplay, you must decide which character to do. Do you have a favorite character that you are dying to impersonate, even for this? Select a character and explore their costume. You will surely find pictures on the Internet that will help you take in the details of this character costume.
If the character you want appears in different costumes as characters in manga Sakura Card Captor Sakura, you must select the costume is most identified with this character. Fun in cosplay immediately recognized as you are dressed. What is the purpose of going to a cosplay if nobody recognizes your character because the costume you choose is not so popular?
Should I buy or should you make your costume?
Would not it be nice if you have the skills to make your own cosplay costume for your event? Some people are just handy with needles and son and can use the sewing machine without much difficulty. Make your own costume gives you the chance to get all the details right costume, and it always feels good to come to an event wearing a cosplay costume that you have worked on yourself.
Unfortunately, not all gifted with the ability to work with needles, fabric and thread. In this case, you can go to a seamstress with a photograph or sketch of the costume you have in mind and ask the seamstress to do it for you. A good seamstress can come up with a satisfactory that you can proudly wear cosplay, but do not expect him to get all the details.
Another option to make your own costume is to buy parts of items that you can throw together and wearing cosplay. This is a good option if the character made its appearance as it is not an imaginary character with a ready costume. Japanese schoolgirls are easy to cosplay. You just need to get a short pleated skirt, a blazer or jacket that matches the skirt, a blouse, preferably with a broad sailor collar, a tie or bow leggings and moccasins. The downside of buying parts for a costume is that it is not always possible to be as elaborate and detailed as you want to be with your costume.
Putting it all together
Of course you would put the costume on cosplay for your event is not limited to your clothes. You would also need a wig, especially if the character you look like it has a hairstyle and hair color. It may also be necessary for you to wear makeup you do not want to cut a lightning bolt scar on his forehead just to make you look like Harry Potter, you think?
Fittings are also in order cosplay events. A Harry Potter costume will not be complete without his glasses and wand. Knight in shining armor need swords. A princess can not be a princess without her tiara.
Cosplays are fun for people who like to go to them all dolled up and dressed for the party that cosplays often. Gather your costume for the event is arguably half the fun.
