What is cosplay?

While there is no set in stone definition, the word ‘Cosplay’ usually refers to the act of dressing in a costume to recreate the appearance of a character from a work of fiction. Popular forms of cosplay involve donning the outfit of popular anime, video game, or comic book characters. ... Many cosplayers create their own costumes by sewing clothing, crafting armor and props from a number of materials. Others choose to buy ready made costumes from retailers specializing in cosplay, or commission the work of tailors or other cosplay hobbyists. ... Cosplay is a world-wide phenomenon with people of all ages participating. Cosplay often occurs at conventions and events geared towards anime, comics, games and sci-fi interests, but is not limited to them.
