Cosplay

Zabuza [Naruto]

Cosplay, a contraction of the English words “costume” and “play”, is a Japanese subculture centered on dressing as characters from manga, anime, tokusatsu, and video games, and, less commonly, Japanese live action television shows, fantasy movies, or Japanese pop music bands. However, in some circles, “cosplay” has been expanded to mean simply wearing a costume.

In Japan, “cosplay” as a hobby is usually an end unto itself. Likeminded people gather to see others’ costumes, show off their own elaborate handmade creations, take lots of pictures, and possibly participate in best costume contests.

Well this is something that a lot of anime addicts are into, personally I think some are very cool and they do an amazing job and some are really bad but funny. I can’t honestly get into custome, except maybe a robot and on my bike. But some of these are really amazing and I just can’t help but think they are amazing. It takes a specific type of appreciation to go to the lengths some of these people have gone. These pictures are one of the best I have ever seen.
