A big indoor stadium. Large scale event. High energy in the air. A huge crowd. Many colorful faces. There are a few standing patiently in line to click a snap with a lady dressed as their favorite superhero, Wonder Woman. She looks intimidating, yet caring, and possibly someone who wants to save the world.
What initially started as a hobby in Japan, is becoming extremely popular around the world as a moment to celebrate love for childhood heroes and idols. Cosplay, or costume-play(cosplay costumes), may at first glance look like a simple costume change, where people dress as their favorite characters. But it’s more than that. Participants imbibe the character – its habits, its body language, its likes and dislikes and more. There is freedom to be anyone you like, and no one can judge you for the same.
With increasing popularity of comic and fan conventions across the world, cosplay has become one of the most attractive features at the events. Adults, young adults, and even children dress up to be a part of the real-life comic world – something they have dreamt of at least once in their lives before. Their costumes they don can vary greatly -sometimes they customize it according to what’s available and what works for them. Then there are those who painstakingly put it together, piece by piece, to look as authentic as their source.
Japanese get their anime or manga known to the world and also bring their cosplay to worldwide popularity. Short for “costume play”, cosplay is that people dress up in costumes to roleplay a specific character or concept. At present, one trend for popular cosplay concepts is Lolita.
Originally in Japan, Lolita style is heavily inclined towards the Victorian fashion and inspired by the costumes of the Rococo period. However, do not confuse with Vladimir nabokov’ s alluring protagonist, Lolita is actually a fashion culture that targets at being more cute or pretty as compared to sexy.
Lolita fans argue that Lolita costumes should be made of the same materials of elegance and beauty. Associated with clothes that haphazardly put together and is characterized by many scratchy laces and satin, Lolita cosplay is usually expensive. That is also why many fans like to make the costumes by themselves.
