Japanese pop culture, in the form of anime, manga and other media, is highly popular all over the world today. Cosplay, which combines the words “costume” and “play” (in the sense of playful acting), is also a popular activity among adults who enjoy dressing up as anime or video game characters, and young people wearing unique costumes and makeup are often sighted in districts of Tokyo like Akihabara or Harajuku.
The growth in cosplay is seeing a massive boom in all over the world! Rather than just play as the character, these no.1 fans want to be the character: dress like them, act and move like them, and pose like them in particular.
Now you can buy those costumes online. Why don’t you try your favorite anime or video game hero and go out!
