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.

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.

The Muppets halloween costumes recommendation

MuppetsMuppets cosplay

Although I’ve grown up I can’t deny my love for The Muppets. Over years and years it’s still my favorites for 2011 Halloween I will play as one of Muppets.

Miss Piggy is my target although I am chubby and one of my friends will dress up as Kermit the Frog to be my boyfriend. It’s cool, isn’t it? There are a lot of works for me to make my costume if I would like to more like Miss Piggy. I do the main job and some friends will help me too.

The first thing I need to do is that buy a wig (I don’t have a long blond hair).Then I am going to try on all the boots in pink with black leather. I will make/sew the skirt myself. It’s tight and short and will rock a wide black leather belt with it to match the black leather boots.

I will wear mesh stockings under my skirt as well. It will make me sexier—a sexy Miss Piggy!

For Halloween costumes I think dressing as a cartoon character or an animal is a great idea. It can make you feel younger and forget all the pressure.

Sexy girl cosplay Mileena from 2011 video game Mortal Kombat at Comic-Con

mileenamileena cosplayMileena is a fictional character in the Mortal Kombat fighting game series.

Mileena

Mileena wore a tight bodysuit (and mask), with her uniform being colored in shades of magenta. Later on, her costumes changed, some of them rather loose, but usually more revealing than Kitana’s. In terms of physical features, she is identical to Kitana except her face, as her visage is twisted by the Tarkatan DNA flowing in her veins, giving her a large mouth rimmed with long, sharp teeth.

Mileena cosplay from Mortal Kombat

At 2011 comic con, there is a wonderful Mileena cosplay by Rosanna Rocha. Here is the review of Mileena cosplay.

1. How would you describe your costume?

I’m Mileena from Mortal Kombat. Basically I took a bathing suit and covered it in fabric. It took three weeks to sew. I just used a bathing suit as a pattern and sewed it from that.

2. Why did you choose to dress as this character?

The new Mortal Kombat game came out, and I really liked it. Also, the movie’s coming out so I was like, I should do a Mortal Kombat costume. Mileena’s my favorite girl, because she’s crazy.

3. What do your friends and family thinks of you dressing up for Comic-Con?

Oh, they’re all really supportive. My mom helped me buy all the fabric, and my friend is a fashion designer and she helped me sew some of it. They’re all like, ‘You’re hot, do it!’ And I like to do stuff like this all the time.

4. How much did your costume cost you to make?

Well, I have the boots. Those were $30 just by themselves. But the fabric was pretty cheap — it was only like $9.99 a yard, and it’s a tiny costume so I only used two yards of that. It was more the time spent making it than the money.

5. Is this your first time cosplaying?

Yeah, it’s the first time I’ve been to Comic-Con. It’s really fun! There’s a lot of waiting involved, a lot of lines for the panels and stuff. But it’s very exciting.
