Japan Is The Best In Cosplay. Don't You Agree?

If you are into Cosplay you would have known that Japan is the best when it comes to Cosplay no matter how hard other people from different nations try to prove it. Japan simply out-cosplay everyone I have to say. Before we proceed, do you know what is Cosplay? Simply put it mean "COStum PLAY" which is a type of staging where the participants will clad costumes and related accessories to match that of a specific character. And these characters are often derived from anime, manga, novel, video games etc. You name it and the Japanese will cosplay it flawlessly.

Strikingly similar.

Cosplayers are usually otakus which are fans of Japanese comic books aka manga. Now Cosplay differs from Halloween costume wear in its purpose. Yep! That's a purpose for cosplaying. More often than not, the main objective of cosplay is interpretation. In other words when someone is cosplaying a character, that particular cosplayer will attempt to become one's character.

A very similar Cloud huh!

Demenours wise, everything must be a carbon copy of the characters. Costumes are expected to follow meticulously to the costumes known to be worn by the character represented. Even the the hair has to done according to the character...thread by thread! Sounds more like the cosplayer being possessed aye? I believe all cosplayers are perfectionist in their own right.

So what do you think? The above cosplays might look a bit too sexist right? Perhaps these are characters derived from their hentai? Then again I really have no idea at all. So do you still think there is any other country that can "cosplay" better than Japan? Very, very unlikely huh. After all Japan is the origin of Cosplay. Have a great Sunday folks. :)
