My day has been made by the sight of pets getting their cosplay act on. Especially the dog that could be an Ewok and the cat that could be Princess Leia. Or Batman. They make it look so easy.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 8 September 2012

Really, take your pick from all the fictitious characters in the world — there are way too many choices for a bit of cosplay fun. Why anyone would want to cosplay Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street as two grumpy, wrinkly grandpops, though, we can’t imagine. Yet that’s exactly what two guys had in mind, […]

Japan’s World Cosplay Summit

The Uncool Hunter Reader Find

By The Uncool Hunter in New Fashion on Wednesday 22 July 2009

Cosplay, an activity for lovers of comics and science fiction, was born in Japan in the 70s. The word derives from the combination of two British words: costume and play. So the translation would be ‘costume to play’. It consists of wearing the costume of some fiction character and dramatizing and acting like that character. The design and preparation of the costume also counts, as does the body shaping in order to make the costume fit and make it as ‘real’ as possible. Cosplayers take part in mass conventions around the world in order to decide the best of them. The most important of them is the World Cosplay Summit, which takes place in Japan every year.

You’re a long way from Gotham, Mr Wayne

Milo Sumner Contributor

By Milo Sumner in Video on Wednesday 3 September 2014

It seems that Batman is real! Or at least there is one hell of a good a cosplayer roaming Japan. Dressed in a mega-realistic Batman costume that looks like it probably would stop a bullet, this guy (equal parts awesome and crazy) has apparently popped up in Japan. He was last seen riding his badass bat-trike, which looks like it goes pretty darn fast! Shout-out to any readers in Japan, reward offered for any further news on this caped crusader.

By Kenny Ong in New Fashion on Friday 22 August 2014

While fashion designers all over the world are wringing their hands in despair over what new designs they can possibly come up with for the next season’s pair of must-have jeans, one German cosplayer already has it down pat. Make it anime, of course! Known only as Kirameku for now, she has cunningly made good use of some water-based textile paints to draw strategically positioned 2D lines and creases on a pair of plain denim jeans.
