What is cosplay?

Cosplay is when you dress up as anyone from a book, movie, television show, comic-book or someone in history. This is mainly done at comic-cons and other expos.

When I first got interested in this topic & why I chose it.

I first started learning about cosplay when I was in 6th grade when I went to the Dallas fan expo and saw all of the different costumes and props. This interests me because it's fun making costumes and props.

What I already knew.

I already knew what cosplay was, and that it was mainly done at comic-cons. I also knew that people would plan and create their costumes for months before, and because of this it had a pretty big following on social media sites like tumblr, instagram and youtube.

What I learned

How it is beneficial to me.

This is beneficial to me because I learned new and interesting things, and if I wanted to pursue a carer in prop design, I could do better than before.

How it can benefit others.

Cosplay has been known to bring up confidence, and I think informing people about cosplay, may boost their confidence enough to cosplay.

My plans for the future.

I doubt that I will pursue a carrer in cosplay, or prop design, as it is not what i want my career to be. I do however, plan to continue creating new props and other crafts.
