Vol #4

There are different kinds of fans. For some, a T-shirt with their favourite character is enough, while others transform their homes into veritable museums for paraphernalia. And others dont stop at taking on the role of their idols!

Geek World Fashion Designers

For those who arent in the loop, a cosplayer is a person who transforms into a different character, With the help of makup and a costume, at all sorts of fan meetups and Conventions. There are loads of sources for inspiration: comics, films, TV shows, anime, video games - all that that is beloved by "geek" culture. Because of this, any old pirate or princess costume wont fit in at a cosplay party, but if you dress up as Captain Jack Sparrow or Leia Organa - you are in.

There is an opinion that the fashion for changing Clothes came from Japan, but this is not so. The concept of Cosplay is really invented by a Japanese journalist and writer Nobuyuki Takahashi who connected the words costume and play .


He used this word to describe what he saw at the 42nd worldcon(World Convention of Science Fiction), which was held not in japan . but in Los Angeles in addition, this was only in 1984 but fans dressing up in costumes suits appeared much earlier.
