Not quite a clothing style intended to be worn everyday, the world of cosplay involves exploring the possibility of being a fictional character that you like — mainly through clothing. The word cosplay originated from kosupure (コスプレ), a Japanese adaptation for English costume play. Popularized in Japan, it has since extended around the world to be a popular hobby among many.
Cosplay consists in dressing like a fictional character from any kind of media, or even own creation, and emulating them to some degree in interaction with other people, who can also be cosplayers. It is usually seen in conventions — especially about manga, anime and western comic popular culture; also in fan organized reunions, in role-playing groups, and in photos uploaded to the Internet.
