What is Cosplay?
Costume play, or what is more popularly known as COSPLAY, is a decades old visual form of performance celebrating pop culture fandom.
Participants express themselves through highly creative dress up and role playing drawing inspiration from geek pop culture including, but not limited to video games, animation, comic books, literature and movies.
Cosplay is multidisciplinary, involving styling, hair and make up, prop making and, of course, costuming! Despite its crafting and sewing fundamentals, it’s inclusive of all skill levels. Cosplayers attend pop culture fandom conventions known as Cons.
The most actively visited ones include International Comicon and Canadian FanExpo. Here they can enter Cosplay competitions where the higher standard of accuracy in the construction of their character is recognized as Competition Cosplay; whereas Convention Cosplay focuses on the fun of dress up rather than the level of skill.
In either case, this passionate artistic hobby embraces crafting, imagination and innovation; all characteristics of the Fabricland community!
Although, Fabricland has always been a go-to place for all Cosplay needs, Cosplayers can further indulge their imagination and craft the heroes they want with this new collection.
