The word ‘cosplay’ is a combination of the words ‘costume’ and ‘play’ and it refers to a performance in which cosplayers wear self-made costumes to represent a pop-culture character. World-famous festivals like Comic Con in the USA or Comiket in Japan attract thousands of people whose creativity and imagination have no boundaries. Some cosplayers are so passionate about playing their favorite heroes that it’s hard to tell the difference between the original and the cosplay character.
Here at Bright Side we’ve prepared a compilation of pics showing cosplay gurus and a bonus shot that will make you doubt what you’re seeing.
