WTF is Cosplay?

I must be an idiot. I don't get what 'it' is. I'm looking at it. I see men looking silly mostly. Sexy women... mostly. WTF is it?

In a nutshell, it's short for Costume Play, dressing up as their favorite characters and it applies to both men and women. Personally, I think it should just be women. But that's just me.

Is there sex involved?

Like those teddy bear fetishes?

Sex is involved with everything. But Cosplay is basically those guys and dolls walking around Comic Con, creating a bond with other like-minded souls that also like to dress up. If it leads to sex, great. But this isn't a sex thing. It's not a fetish if that's what your thinking. People don't dress up as Superman or Catwoman hoping to get laid. Well, that isn't entirely true. We all dress one way or another to woo that hot chick down the street. But that's a different story for a different day................

Cosplay is mostly associated with Cons , movie events and whatnot. But they do have Cosplay parties that people throw, just to give themselves and excuse to dress up.

Actually, as someone pointed out on twitter, almost no one dresses as Wonder Woman.  It's kinda weird.

There are plenty of Witchblade's out there in Cosplay-land that rock, but this is one of the best evah! There is another one out there that I'm trying to find that is actually THE best of all time and it was at this years Comic Con 2013. Just can't seem to find it though.

Hottest Cosplay - SDCC 2013

Hottest is a matter of opinion and not one I agree with 100%. Sure, there are a few hotties to be found, but most are average at best.
