New popular culture of young people

People all over the world are mixing the fantasy life of characters into their everyday real-world life. Roleplaying with costumes is a way of life for some people; it is also well-known as a performance art called cosplay. The donning of costumes, along with accessories, to mimic a character or concept (often inspired by Japanese fiction, including anime, video games and comic books) combined with physically playing out the role of the character, is becoming more and more popular, not just in Japan, but around the whole world. These are not actors on a stage; they are real people playing out fantasy roles in real life.

Forrest J. Ackerman and Myrtle R. Douglas inspired worldwide costuming in 1939 as well. Ackerman wore his futuristic costume, designed by Douglas, to the 1st World Science Fiction Convention that took place in Caravan Hall in New York. It still stands to theory that, although dressing up as characters may have been inspired by Ackerman and Douglas, the actual coined phrase Cosplay still did not become real until Nov Takahashi coined it.

During video game and comic book trade shows, you may see a gathering of cosplayers, adorned with their anime-appeal costumes. Don’t be surprised if you see these bold characters walking on the streets during the day or at the nightclub at night; this trend has really taken off and seems to be growing more popular as time goes on. Cosplayers look forward to the two largest events in the world for cosplayers; the Comiket, held semi-annually in Japan and the San Diego Comic-Con, which can be found in California.

Today, Japanese cosplayers congregate outside during the weekends to masquerade, pose for pictures, and compare each other’s elaborate costumes. If you are interested in visiting one of the most famous cosplay scenes in the world, head over to Tokyo, Japan’s Harajuku district. In addition, there are several current magazines that focus on the vogue and rogue cosplay scene, including: Anicoz from the U.S., Cosplaymix, by Mexico, and Dengeki and Cosmode, two of Japan’s cosplay magazines.

The famous gothic lolita dress

gothic lolita

To be honest, I begin to realize lolita deeply in these days, for better works, I start to learn the history, style, and other things about lolita. To many lolita fans, I was just the newcomers. So I must strive harder, all right?  About lolita, what perplex me is the gothic lolita, its style is distinguish with others. The lolita style mostly express the young girls’ sweet flavor, but the gothic lolita show some horrific and mysterious flavor, how the gothic lolita could remix the sweet and the horrific together.

The gothic lolita origin from the European gothic culture, and though the absorbed and applied by Japanese, it become one art style different from gothic. The gothic lolita is famous in young’s, and the female is more. The lolita gothic costume imitate the court dress of Victorian era, and combine the lolita’s pure and the decadence of gothic. It is famous repidly in Japan. Although this costume mostly adopt the dull color, but the style is very gorgeous. The lolita clothing distinguish from the cosplay, but there are some parentage between them, because many chief actress of the gothic lolita cartoon was very welcomed among the cosplayers.

The gothic costume was root in incipient stage of 1980s, the all black costume was very popular in London, and collocated the white makeup; this style was spread in Japan and popular quickly at 1990s. At that time, the gothic mix the visual rock becomes one new style, that is gothic lolita. The biggest difference between gothic and gothic lolita is in the spirit, the latter give people more fantastic and charm feelling. The Mana Sana divide the gothic lolita in to elegant gothic lolita and elegant gothic aristocrat, the former is more magnificent, combine the angel’s and demon’s feeling; and the latter one is the neutrality appearance costume, express the aristocratic noble characteristic.
