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................

So, is it just the events they do this or do this pretty regularly?

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.

Hottest Cosplay - SDCC 2013

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ESol6j5hfk

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.

Speaking of hot cosplay, I was flipping through channels and just landed on SyFy. I didn't even know what I was watching, but they were focusing on YaYa

Holy crap... You have my attention.

Yeah, the series premiered a couple of weeks back I think. That's when I came across it. I liked it and want to see more of it. That chick is the lead Host of the series.

Making a Star Wars Rancor Costume for 2015 San Diego Comic-Con

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05XBEM91Whg

No f*cking way! This Rancor is sick! Looks amazing and looks like it weighs 500 lbs, in spite of it being made out of foam. The Luke Skywalker action figure with 'Bone' was a nice touch.

Morphicon 2018 Cosplay:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhBuOAWvlks

You would think that a convention dedicated to Power Rangers would have a one and done type of costume, but I gotta say that there's some really fun concepts on display here.  I'm digging the variety not just of ideas but also of quality, some are TV show quality reproductions, others are handmade, and some are just weird mash-ups.

And btw, I cannot believe that Sasha Craig (the girl with the yellow helmet) looks almost exactly the same as she did almost 20 years ago.  Insane!
