COSPLAY: What is it?

Cosplay is when you dress up and behavior like a character from a TV show, film, book, toy, or game. Cosplay isn't the same as dressing up for Halloween, although it's similar; cosplay is about studying and acting like those characters and creating costumes (often homemade from scratch!) that reflect the character's style.

You can get as involved with cosplay as you like! The more creative, the better. Also, cosplays that involve the whole family are really fun! For instance, you could cosplay Goldilocks and the Three Bears or the Ghostbusters, or the Avengers! You could cosplay cartoons, anime, or live action. You could create costumes from books, such as Dr. Seuss, Harry Potter, or other worlds. 

Here's a short, fun video of cosplay ideas from a recent convention.

Happy cosplaying - we can't wait to see what you come up with!
