Cosplay is a shortened form of two words ‘costume’ and ‘play’. It is a performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplay costumes are often based on comics, manga, anime, cartoons, video games, movies and tv-series.

You’re absolutely free to wear whatever you want! Sure, we find it super fun to see you as a fan fully dressed as your favorite superhero, but just wear the things which are most comfortable for you.

Most cosplayers would love to pose for or with you. Please do ask them first, and always be respectful.
