What is cosplay?

A portmanteau of costumed play, cosplay is a creative pastime that involves dressing up as a character or concept. These characters are often inspired by both popular and obscure movies, books, and video games.

Many cosplayers will go above and beyond simply dressing up in a character's outfit and will "role-play" their chosen character by adopting their mannerisms, gestures and voices.

With the cosplay community now bigger than ever, conventions are held all over the world so that avid cosplayers can come together and meet fellow enthusiasts.

What is genderbending?

The definition of genderbending may differ depending on which cosplayer you ask, but generally, it's when a role-player switches up the gender of the character they're representing.

For instance, you could dress up as a female Link or a male Gamora. Cosplay is meant to be fun and transformative, meaning there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to playing your favourite character.

Where can I get cosplay ideas?

Cosplay costumes are often inspired by movies, books and video games, giving you plenty of sources to draw inspiration from. If you are looking for other ideas though, sites like Pinterest are a great place to start.

You can also check out the #cosplay hashtag on other popular social media platforms such as Instagram or Twitter to see thousands of great costume ideas.
