the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game, especially one from the Japanese genres of manga and anime.
I've dabbled in cosplay for a few years now. It's one of my favorite ways to express myself, and to express my love for well-told stories and beautiful, brilliant, colorful characters. I make my cosplays myself - sometimes I cobble them together DIY-style by modifying pieces from thrift stores and the like, and sometimes I sew them from scratch - and a few lovely people have been kind enough to take photographs of me here and there. To get an idea of my interests and my style, feel free to peruse my Instagram feed below. (And if you feel like giving @bravelittlecosplays a follow, I certainly won't object!)
Thanks for stopping by! ^_^
