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.

How to wear cosplay wig?

Blue Curl Vocaloid Miku Cosplay WigFor cosplayers, fashion cosplay wigs are essential thing. Wigs are often useful for cosplay costume . They save you from cutting, dying or styling your own hair, allow you to create insane styles, and you can put one on and be ready to go instantly – it only ever needs styling once! Furthermore, you can sew, glue, and do all sorts of things to wigs which aren’t possible with real hair.But many people have problems when they wear the wig, especially the fist time.

Wig Cap

Wig cap

Wig cap is the basic tool to wear cosplay wig. Try to get a color to match your wig, or a neutral blonde colored one. It’ll hide your hair, secure the wig better and make it more comfortable to wear. You can make one yourself using the foot part of tights, and short stockings are ideal since you can use the foot part and have the thick elasticized top to grip tightly round your head. Whatever you do, your wig cap needs to fit your head tightly, and preferable have a tight band around the edge.

As for getting your hair underneath the wig, wetting your hair is helpful, as can be gel and hairspray, particularly for hiding stray hairs at the edge of your wig cap.

Try pinning or otherwise fixing your hair in position before putting on the wig cap since this will help prevent the wig from shifting while you wear it. How you put up your hair depends on its length and nature.

Some ideas for longer hair:

Twisting your hair up at the back of your head is quick and easy. Wigs stretch most at the back, to the nape of the neck, so this is ideal.

Wrapping your hair around your head will keep it flatter and is less likely to affect the look of the wig once it’s on. Putting your hair into a couple of braids (or more if necessary) then wrapping them round your head is more secure. French braids are also suitable.

For particularly long hair, pin curls are ideal. Take a small strand of hair and twist it until it starts curling up, coil it against your head and pin it in place. Repeat until all your hair is up. Even if you have extremely long hair, it should still fit under a wig using a method such as that.

Once your hair is up, pull the wig cap on from the back. Pull it right down over your forehead, and then shift it back to your hairline to catch any short strands. Hairspray and gel at your hairline is advisable to catch stray strands.

U shaped pin:

As an optional extra, you can pin your wig on. This will keep it in place, stop it sliding back, and make it a lot easier to wear – especially for heavier, strangely styled wigs. U-shaped pins are very OK ^^.

A New Idea For Costume-Alice In wonderland Costume

It has been over one hunddred years since the fairy tale, Alice In Wonderland ,was published by Lewis Carroll.During the period this story has been widely known among all the people,whatever the children,the young or the old.You might want to act as Alice who travels to a wonderland.It is great idea that dress up as Alice for your special occations or Halloween.

Some people may think that Alice In Wonderland is out of date and nobody cares about that.But I realize that this story is being told in plays,shows and movies over and over again and it seems that all people in modern world are still interested in it.

It is easy for you to make the costume of Alice.First,you need a tea-lengh dress with lace trim and color must be white.Second,you need a light blue dress with buttons,short and puffy sleeves.

You need to embellish your Alice costume if you want it to be more authentic.Maybe you have your hair tied back with a black bow and you might need a blond wig if your hair is not blond.But,in my opinion,you might try something different.

Of course,you not have to dress up as same as Alice.You might try something different based on Alice figure.How about a modern Alice? Maybe black hair with black sun glasses?How about a hot Alice and with mini skirt and sexy stockings?
