Cosplay: A short editorial treatise

July 4, 2006 at 1:35 pm 1 comment

Cosplay has been a more recent happening to come out of Japan. With colorful costumes, and brave hearts (and a lot of pride), cosplayers take to the streets, going to conventions, and other locations, to the joy of photographers and perverts everywhere.

But what is cosplay, anyway? Is it an excuse to waste cloth, wood, money and minor material wealth to dress up and be photographed? Or is it a passion, done by people who like their favorite characters a lot? Or is it an excuse for perverts to do dirty deeds in costume?

Actually, I have no idea. I’m not a lot into cosplay, meself. But there is a strong cosplay community here, so I do know some things about cosplay.

Cosplay, short for costume play, seems to have originated in Japan, where the people are a little crazy. In Tokyo, it is not unusual to see people dressed up in weird clothes. It is probable that some anime fan might have extrapolated the idea and dressed up as a character s/he really likes. And the fad caught on. Like wildfire.

Regardless of its origins, it has come out of Japan, and into the world.It’s actually one of the less dangerous things to come out of Japan, and when done correctly, can be damn good for te eyes. To be honest, nothing beats a good cosplayer.

Like all things, cosplay can be dangerous if in the hands of the wrong people. I believe we all have heard some stories of MANFAYE, have we not? Not to mention some of the pictues of 30-yea-old men dressed as CardCaptor Sakura. Ugh.

Regardless of your opinion on cosplay, I think it is quite harmless, as long as we stay away from the cosplay JAVs. Good fucking Lord. I have never seen one, and I hope still pictues is all I have to see of them. Japan is a sick, sick perverted place to be sometimes.
