If you’re thinking to yourself ‘whats Cosplay’ then let us quickly break it down for you! Cosplay refers to the art of taking your favourite character (or hero) from a film, book or video game and dressing up. Some may attend Cosplay events with colourful clothes that resemble their chosen character, while there are some professionals who take to the stage with lifelike replica props and armour.
