subculture 101: cosplay

Cosplay gets its name from Costume Play. The subculture is all about dressing up us your favorite character from comics, manga, video games, and Japan-animation. This is more than just playing dress up though. Some dedicated fans spend months planning, purchasing hard-to-find items, and design some of the most elaborate costumes to express their fondness for a given character. You’ll often find these crazed fans group at major conventions within their different genres, from the notorious Comicon to the now ever popular E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo aka video games convention).
