Playing with Cosplay

Cosplay is the art of transforming one’s self into a fictional character, and inspiration is typically drawn from characters in books, movies, video games, TV, and more. Expert Cosplay artists don’t simply ‘dress-up’; the process involves an immense amount of time planning and building the perfect Cosplay characters.
