    What is the Cosplay culture all about?

    My cousin is travelling in Japan right now and she called to tell me about the cos play culture that she discovered there. I didn't quite understand from her description : people dress up like characters and enact scenes from their favorite play. Is that right? Is this part of any festival? How did it all start?

    I'm not sure where it all started or why, but it is pretty big in certain circles in the States too. I have friends who are very involved with Star Wars cosplay groups and who have absolutely beautiful reproduction costumes. I've also sold some Sailor Moon pieces on eBay to adults who wanted them for cosplay even though I'd actually designed and created the costumes and accessories as Halloween costumes for my middle child.

    Cosplay is where a person dresses up and sometimes assumes the character of their favorite character from popular media - generally it is from anime, but can also be from games, movies, and manga. There are some areas where it is more prominent than others. If you want to know more about it there is a new show coming to the Sy-fy channel - "Heroes of Cosplay". If nothing else it should be entertaining.
