PostSubject: Why do you Cosplay?   Tue Jun 08, 2010 10:40 am

Just a general discussion on why you cosplay Smile What do you get out of it?

I like to cosplay because it's such a great way to be creative, but alot of it is having that reaction to your costume from other people, and the great feeling when you have spent ages on a costume and you are so proud of it! I also love 'posing' as that character and really getting into the spirit!

Lately I'm finding I love the challenge of making a costume that's a little different

I really like expressing my love of a character or anime and showing respect to that... but also challenging myself to make harder costumes which helps me be more creative ^_^

eeeeermmm also its a really cool way to meet new people cus for some reason its easier to talk to people when your all in costumes haha.

I like the creative aspect too, making bits of my costume, or putting it together bit by bit. Plus, I dress quite normally in everyday life, so I like the opportunity to wear something a little more interesting. And my childish side really likes pretending to be cool characters, lol.

And I agree, I've met some awesome people through cosplaying. Wink

I like being someone else. You can act completely differently to how you would normally. I'm really quiet and shy irl but in costume I can mess about and be a lot more outgoing.

Yeah i think for me its the creative side. I love to pick a character then pick apart their costume to see how its put togther.
I think its also a mask, a way of being someone else who you arent normally.
I have so many id love to do but no there are limitations with weight, age and height so i tend to go for shy characters.
