People about Cosplay...
Let me make it simple for you.
These are some factors which make this fun-filled activity very fascinated.
1) It is Fun
We are all fed up of real life sometimes, the animated world always considered as utopia and we like to experience that Utopian life as the way it is – funny and playful. It is entertaining and enjoyable.
You can express your love for the character which fascinates you. This is the best way to enjoy the fandom of a particular character that you really like it and want to hide your personality under the charm of whatever character.
People like to be a center of attention. Getting compliment on your creativity or catching the eyes of your friends towards famous movie character is always flattering.
We all like creativity, sometimes costumes are crafted by hand. The process includes sewing, cutting, using something completely different thing for entirely different purposes make you proud of cracking the unique idea that nobody ever think of.
It really depends on:
There is no 100% rule for this. If it requires body paint, doing that before putting on the costume may be best. If the costume requires going over the head, putting makeup on after the costume is at least halfway on may be better. Same with wigs and other accessories.
- The costume. How is it made? How is it put on? How hard/easy is it to wear?
- The cosplay. What cosplay? What makeup does it require?
- Individual preference. What works best for you?
I tend to decide on and create my cosplays with makeup/wigs as the last things to put on, not the first. Because for me that is easier. And since I am allergic to body paint, that isn’t a concern. It varies from cosplayer to cosplayer and cosplay to cosplay.
It’s a way of expressing your love for a particular anime/manga/video game series. You enjoy the world the author created so much that you feel like dressing up as one of the characters. It’s a tribute of sorts.
It’s fun to take a break from your real life and escape into an anime/manga/video game world, even if just for a day at an anime convention. You get to be someone else for a bit.
Great cosplayers draw crowds of convention-goers, get their picture taken by lots of photographers and receive lots of compliments. It’s flattering.
When you walk through a convention and see other cosplayers, there’s a sense of belonging to a community of people with shared interests. People make eye contact, smile when they recognize your character, ask to take pictures and are generally pretty friendly.
Some people really enjoy the process of planning and creating the costume. Making armor, sewing, and building weapons can be a fun and rewarding hobby.
