Cosplay by Camille Rebustes

Cosplay short for “costume play” is a form of dress up hobby that is popular among young people and even some adults. It is the term that was first coined by Nov Takahashi from Studio Hard after he had visited the 1984Los Los Angeles Science Fiction Worldco and saw the costumes there.

In the cosplay, participants or more commonly had known as cosplayers dress themselves up as their favorite characters from anime, manga, games or even movues such as Harry Pottter. The costume may be as elaborate as that of a robot suit from Gundam anime series like the Shana or Highschool of Dead. To appear more convincing, cosplayer adopt similar behaviour to the character they have chosen to portray while costume. And they enjoying competing in cosplay contest and performing their own passion in cosplaying. Cosplay costumes vary greatly and can range from simple themed clothing to highly detailed costumes. Cosplay is generally considered different from Halloween and Mardi Gras costume wear, as the intention is to accurately replicate a specific character, rather than to reflect the culture and symbolism of a holiday event. Some cosplayers choose to have a cosplay photographer take high quality images of them in their costumes posing as the character. This is most likely to take place in a setting relevant to the character’s origin, such as churches, parks, forests, water features and abandoned/run-down sites. 




This couple was really love a cosplay. And they said that their relationship was very strong because they have  the same hobbies and also said “ Mas nakikilala pa namin ang isa’t isa dahil nagkakasundo kami sa gantong bagay at nagtutulungan pa kami sa pag gawa ng costume namin”
