What is cosplay?
Cosplay (コスプレ) is a type of performance art whose participants outfit themselves, with often-elaborate costumes and accessories, as a specific character or idea. [taken from wiki]
Because Cosplayers pride themselves on the accuracy and details of their costumes as well as the portrayal of the character, they spend a lot of time and effort studying the character and details that make up their outfits. Costume-making (Sewing), prop making, make-up, hair styling, photography and a lot more goes into a single cosplay.
It is definitely more than just donning a costume.
As such, I would like to showcase the following talented people, together with their equally talented photographers who have managed to bring out the character to life so well.
