The origins of cosplay are revealed.

With the development of the times, our lives are becoming more and more colorful and many new tax cultures are emerging, among which cosplay culture is one of the highlights. Cosplay costumes, exaggerated shapes, and cool make-up are a big attraction. Where did cosplay originate? In our general perception, cosplay is role-playing, and we usually play as our favorite characters and game characters, mostly in the secondary dimension, because we live in three dimensions and the world is completely different from what is shown on the surface, so people will play as a character to express their love for that character. But what is overlooked is that the origins of cosplay did not come from Japanese manga, it technically developed from rituals, in a broad sense it originated in the western hemisphere in the United States and then developed as Japanese manga grew to what we see today, and cosplay means cosplay and anime live-action, although in the early days it was not called that it.


What is a Cosplay costume?

Cosplay costume is the practice of dressing up in costumes, props, accessories, shoes, and boots to imitate characters from anime, games, and TV shows. Cosplayers are generally young people, mostly school students, and models. Cosplay originated in the United States, but has grown the fastest and most mature in Japan. This is also due to Japan's thriving anime market, which has a wide variety of anime titles. It also provides a wide scope for cosplayers who love anime to imitate it. In the beginning, there was no professional women’s cosplay costume market, so it was all custom-made through tailor shops or do-it-yourself DIY. As the number of cosplayers grew, a niche market for game and anime costumes emerged.


What is the difference between normal clothes and Cosplay costumes?

The difference is that normal clothes are unobtrusive, unnoticeable, and look very natural, while men’s cosplay costumes are individual, flamboyant, alternative, and exaggerated; they are eye-catching and attract attention. We wear normal clothes in modest styles and single colors, with styles such as casual, sportswear, work uniforms, and formal wear. Cosplay costumes are more individualistic, flamboyant, and alternative, generally cosplaying characters from anime and games, with exaggerated costume designs, which are more eye-catching to wear out. This is why some cosplayers are invited to do some commercial performances at gaming exhibitions, comic shows, and shopping mall openings to attract consumers' attention and earn popularity.
