How to be a good cosplayer XD
Cosplay is an hobby born in Japan in the '80.
The word cosplay is the contraction of two words, COSTUME and PLAYER, and it consist in wearing and behave like a fantasy character (from movies, sitcom and of course comics, manga and anime).
It is very important to say that behind the costume, cosplayer love to "behave" exactly as if the ARE that character they chose.
So you can see them do the same poses or speak as the character.
But... where you can find cosplayers? In comics convention or cosplay summits
Comics convention are very common and you can find some in every country, here in Italy there is one almost each month, from Milan to Bologna, Rome and Naples, there are a lot of chances to see cosplayer in action!
Often the bigger conventions have a space for cosplayers and contest.
The main contests here in Italy are the ones of Luccacomics and Romics, in this one take place the WCS selections, a very important contest that take place in Nagoya (Japan).
I'm a cosplayer since 2003, when I cosplayed Zoro from one piece.
Since 2003 a lot of years are passed and many cosplays that you can admire in the gallery!
