I’m wearing a Hollyburn skirt. My companion is wearing…?
The first time I became aware of Cosplay was in 2014. I attended London Comi Con through my day job and stumbled upon … a whole other world of outfits. Outrageous outfits. Glorious outfits.
But I didn’t have a clue what was happening.
Since then, I’ve become aware that a lot of people sew their Cosplay outfits. Pattern companies have even begun producing Cosplay-specific patterns. Today, someone told me about her daughter:
She sews. Because, you know, she’s into Cosplay.
I nodded knowledgeably. But honestly, I’m still a bit in the dark. I’m fascinated, impressed and in awe. I’m also ignorant.
Can you help me understand Cosplay?
