Why I love Cosplay?

Today not talk about cosplay, otherwise someone said to me that was for the purpose of profit, actually I really don’t know cosplay much, just recently interested in, and my work has a little contraction with this.

To be honest, maybe the topic about cosplay is more famous in Japan; Japanese abounds in anime, in this respect our Chinese have to admit that they are smarter than us. As we have already seen quite a lot of classic cartoons, such as Doraemon, Saint, Floral fairy, Tennis boy, older played a lot of animation games after, such as The King Of Fighter, Street Fighter (I prefer to the kind of game), how to say, when I see these childhood memory again, I really want to get back to that, how innocent and carefree was that time. Then how I had the vitality, our environment, which was like how harmonious than society of cruelty right now, but I like my present job, I also like cosplay.

As you all know, this earthquake disaster in Japan is quite serious, even threatening the peripheral national security. It was really unexpected to many Japanese people, they can really experience “2012 in the end of the world” that solemn and stirring scene, but they also may have gone. As a Chinese, as a college graduate, although I wouldn’t schaden freude, and I never let the Japanese feel what reposing, after all I am also an ordinary people, the earthquake of Sichuan, we also being helpless like now, just look at the news every day, what should we do is still there, no others, continuing to repeat everyday life.

Today the weather is very good, in the early morning I see the sunshine, but I find meditating at night compares to have more artistic conception. On the other hand, the rise of temperature, may be a good omen, also hope that the earth no longer has so many disasters, at least not so frequently. In fact not just Japan, there still has a lot of local people maybe are suffering, so May god be sentimentally attached to them once, slightly be fair.

News:MCM Expo London 2011 cosplay

James Furnell, one of the organizers of the MCM Expo said, cosplay is more popular than ever.

In the past, kitting yourself out as your favorite fictional character was the preserve of fancy-dress competitions at sci-fi conventions, where the most breathtaking sight was someone with particularly convincing Spock ears.

These days, thanks to the growing popularity of Japanese manga and anime, things are bordering on professional. The man in the Iron Man armour made the whole thing himself and even installed a built-in fan to keep him cool.

Fans of anime and manga try their best to recreate the costumes of their favorite characters.

Funnel has been cosplaying for 11 years. He saw people dressing up as characters at manga conventions and decided to do it himself. Soon he was making ambitious costumes, including an enormous and highly detailed Optimus Prime from Transformers.  He is regarded as one of the best cosplayers in the country and is running today’s competition while wearing his own Thor costume.

Whilst cosplay may not be everyone’s cup of tea there is a vast amount of skill and attention to detail on display

‘The expo’s masquerade is one of the few which judges people properly on their costume and gives them something to aim for,’ he says. ‘People weren’t pushing themselves and over the past two years we’ve seen a real improvement in standards.’ Furnell enjoys the problem-solving aspect of cosplay. ‘Bringing something to life that’s only been designed as a 2D drawing or in CGI is really rewarding,’ he says.

For others, such as cosplay newcomer Jenny Rundle, 20, who is today dressed as Winry Rockbell from Japanese manga series Fullmetal Alchemist, the appeal is more social. ‘I’ve only been coming to these events for a year,’ she says, ‘but I’ve already made lots of new friends. When you see people dressed as characters from the sort of manga you like, you know you’ve got something in common straight away.’

Rundle isn’t allowed to take part in today’s competition as her outfit has been assembled from clothes she bought in high-street shops (except her scythe, which is made from a curtain pole and cardboard). However, she is planning to make her own in future.

The London MCM Expo takes place ahead of the EuroCosplay Championships in London in October

Dressing up as fantasy characters may not be everyone’s ideal way to spend a weekend but you cannot fail to be impressed by the enthusiasm and skill on display.

What is COSPLAY?

Cosplay

COSPLAY ,which is short for “costume play” is originated in Japan(there is another saying that cosplay is originated in United State).It is a type of performance art in which people wear costumes and accessories to represent their favorite character or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan, but recent trends have included American cartoons and Sci-Fi. Favorite sources include manga, anime, tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa.

Cosplayer

The persons who wear costume to represent character are called COSPLAYER,such as Huangshan, a famous Chinese cosplayer. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play. A broader use of the term cosplay applies it to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

Cosplay Costume

The costume cosplayers wear we call cosplay costume .The object of cosplay is interpretation: one attempt to become one’s character much as a stage actor inhabits a role. Cosplay costumes are expected to adhere meticulously to the attire known to be worn by the character represented. Cosplay costumes are unlike this daily life clothing, they are made as the origin characters in anime or manga.

What does cosplay mean to you?

Just now, I saw a article “What does it mean to cosplay? Reflections on a weekend at Star Fest” by Thorin Klosowski .It appealed to me!

This below is taken from his article:

“People were decked out in all types of outfits, but no matter what you might think, their reasons weren’t always the same, nor were the results.
To the general observer, there are two different types of cosplayers: those who dress as a character and those who dress as a part of the universe. This doesn’t seem like much of a difference, and to most people looking in from the outside; it seems like adults dressing like kids on Halloween. But that difference is crucial, both in the way the cosplayers present themselves and how they view their cosplay costume. Two girls both dressed as videogame characters, both passionate about what they’re doing, but not obsessed. Why are they dressed up? Both pretty much gave the same response — “because I like the character design.” No deep-seated emotional problems and weirdness, just two people who enjoy the one to two weeks of preparation for a day out at a convention showing off their work.”

Yes, different style cosplayers present different by cosplay the same character for different objective. Now I understand, cosplay is not just only cosplay, it present you, isn’t it? Different cosplay costume present different results!
