Cosplay is basically describing a performing-art behaviour of self-rigging out as a character with corresponding costume, accessories and/or parameters.

Cosplay isn't about making a costume anymore, even if the concept was born inside the anime and manga world, now everything can be cosplayed.
Movies, tv series, music groups... everything is allowed since cosplaying is another way of fanart, is a mixture of skills as sewing, makeup and even weapons construction or wig styling, usually the cosplay itself becomes a masterpiece of work that costs even months to be made.

This is my little tribute for all those cosplay artist you can find around the DeviantArt.

Really great article with wonderful features!

I'd like to inform all cosplayers about the recent changes with the newly added Cosplay category in Photography - please read the difference between that one and Artisan Crafts > Textile > Costume in my journal here: [link]

Thank you so much!!
I am honoured you like it!

And I already read your journal, thank you so muchf for writing something like this, I find the cosplay category at the photography very useful since there's a lot of cosplay that doesnt include selfmade clothes or they are simply close ups.
