I LOVE IT:
Cosplay = costume play.
You dress up as the characters and have fun plain and simple.
Some people go so far as to acting like that characters which can be annoying/awesome, depending on how it's done.
I have a lot of characters I'd like to be some day
Here's a few:
Meiko Akizuki from Marmalade Boy
Skitty humanoid/gijinka from Poke'mon
Maron Kusakabe from Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne
Keiko Yukimura from Yu Yu Hakusho
Lucy Heartphilia from Fairy Tail
Yui Hirasawa from K-ON!! 2nd ED
It's liberating. Plus it's the most fun ever to have someone ask to take your picture at conventions.
I don't ever know if I'll be able to do most/any of these. :(
hopefully I can. Well,
see ya later.
