Many people enjoy cosplaying. The word "cosplay" is an Japanese acronym for "costume game," in which participants wear costumes and clothing to commemorate characters from anime, video and hero games, fantasy and sci-fi stories, and sometimes live events. programs. . In Japan, some people who participate in cosplay disguise themselves as the famous artist J-pop (Japanese pop) or J-rock (Japanese rock).
Most anime and comics have cosplay events that work on their program to satisfy people who love cosplay. Cosplay has no real meaning; People dress like their favorite characters just because they dress like them. When they meet at cosplay events, they spend most of their time looking at their elaborate and elaborate costumes, watching other participants' costumes, and taking photos. Cosplay events are fun events, although they are strange, pathetic and sometimes very different.
Decide which costume to wear for Cosplay
So, if you are going to cosplay and this is your first turn, how do you know what costume you will be wearing? First you need to know what kind of cosplay it is. Could it be pure anime like manga (Japanese comics) cosplay? Is it a fantasy or a sci-fi convention? What is the theme of the cosplay event? Knowing this in advance will certainly help you choose the costume you should wear to the event. It can also save you the embarrassment of showing up and being completely out, like going to a cosplay event as a character from The Lord of the Rings at a Star Trek cosplay event.
Once you know the theme for the cosplay event, you need to decide which character to go to the event with. Do you have a favorite character that you want to imitate in this event? Choose a character and study her costume. You will definitely find pictures on the internet to help you get the details of this character's costume.
If the character you choose appears in a variety of costumes, such as the character Sakura in the anime Card Captor Sakura, you must choose which costume is best recognized for that character. Cosplay entertainment instantly recognizes who you're wearing. What's the point of going to cosplay when no one knows your character because the costume you choose isn't that popular?
Do you have to buy a costume or do you have to make it yourself?
Wouldn't it be great if you had the skills to create your own costume for your cosplay event? Some people can only use needles and threads and can use a sewing machine without much effort. Creating your own costumes gives you a chance to get all the details of your costume in order and it is always nice to look at a cosplay event decorated with a costume that you made yourself. Unfortunately, not everyone is given the opportunity to work with needles, fabric and thread. In this case, you can go to the tailor with a photo or sketch of the costume you have in mind and ask the tailor to make it for you. A good costume designer can create a satisfying set to which you will proudly contribute to cosplay, but you cannot expect him to deal with all the details.
Another alternative to making your own costume is buying pieces and pieces of things that you can throw on yourself and wear in cosplay. This is a good choice if the character you are portraying is not a fantasy character with a complex costume. Japanese students cosplay very easily. Just get a short pleated skirt; a jacket or a jacket matching the skirt; blouse, preferably with a wide navy collar; a trap or trap; leg warmers and moccasins. The downside to buying costume and costume pieces is that it is not always possible to be as detailed and detailed as you want your costume to match.
It's all combined
Of course, the costume you will have at the cosplay event is not limited to your clothes. You also need a wig, especially if the character you are portraying has an unusual hairstyle and hair color. You may need to wear makeup
