Some cosplayers believe that cosplay is an adventure so do I. Cosplay is like a person from the real world into the animation world, we understand the emotions  of the role, we have experienced the growth of the role, we treat the role which we do love like a real man, and somedayyou make a determination , cosplay the role which you love Such a decision is risky, because maybe there are thousands of in this world people do love that role, once you can not get everyone's interpretation of recognition, there is the risk of being criticized, there will be violent language against your self-confidence, but even encountered such a situation, you could not stop your steps in the cosplay world, and you should become better and better to prove that you are a awesome cosplayer

Cosplayers also need to be brave, cosplay adventures experienced while being a cosplayer, you need the courage to accept the challenge, you need courage to face your family (after all, some families are not supported), you need the courage to meet new friend. Cosplayer’s courage comes from the infection of the role, you want to get to know from friends with common interests eagerness, and it is the courage, contributed many excellent cosplay works and excellent cosplayer appearance.


Don’t you think cosplay is a cheerful thingwhen I have been a cosplayer I feel very cheerful to play roles with my friendswe take coaplay photosupload them to the Internet share our emotions to our friends all over the world.  cosplay is a sharing process, we share our cosplay skills, we share our interesting encountered in the process of cosplay, we share our love for the roleWe feel cheerful when wet share something in the cosplay world.

When we cosplaywe devote ourselves to do something. Like make-up, make clothes which the role dress, do props by ourselves, take photos. When we do those things, we have been focused on it. Because of we are absorbed in cosplay, we do well in it and have so much fun.

The fact is ,all the cosplayers have the endless energy!When we have energy,we could do everything we want!we can play the role from a comic book anytime!we have energy,we have enthusiasm,even if some people do not understand us,we always use our energy beat them,we just do what we love to do.


When we cosplay,we always faithful to the original,even if your cosplay is a built on your own design,you also need to be faithful to your role.If you do that,you would be commended,and feel good about that.If you do not faithful to the original,maybe you will in a doghouse.

those are one cosplayer play the same role in different year.When she has a different mind,she does a better job.She lost her weight,had a make-up study,so she can do well in this job(CHANGANHUANYE   character:Shiyeguang   cosplayer name:Asami-Mio)

Cosplayers love to share other people with their skills, knowledges, experiences.We can find many gorgeous cosplay tutorials, they will tell us about how to fit the role of make-up, how to cut paper patterns, how to make an awesome stage property. When we find those tutorials and learn something from them, we deeply appreciated their sharing.


When we are just getting into this field,the cosplay field,we need to learn a lot of different things.Because of that, most of cosplayers are  hard-working persons. When we learn more things, we will get better and better.


Cosplay needs ability that we can do all the things by ourselves, we cannot expect that there always have someone to help you accomplish something, so cosplayers need to be independent.On the other hand, cosplay is a huge overhead hobbies, in real life, we should have the ability to live independently and can afford this cost themselves, or through our own labor to get something which plays a role we need.


Sometimes we need to face our ture life. When your study, work, life and your hobbies have some conflicts (if your hobbies is your life or work, you need not to worry about the conflict between your hobbies and life), we must make a choice, after all, we live in a real world, when we only play a good role in real life, we can play a good role in the virtual world. Many cosplayers have a good performance and stable income which prove when they face their lives and interests they make a judicious decision.


As a nice cosplayer, we need to learn so many things, such as we need to know how to make better use of some building materials to make a props, we need to know how to use the body structure to shot a better photo of this character , we also need to know how use natural light and reflector light to make your face looks like the character.

Most of cosplayers are cute people.How can you say someone who love animation, comics, games, are not cute people ? We have a childlike innocence heart, we have a desire to learn, we believe that the world is as good as comic books where have full of friendship, strength, courage and never give up.


Cosplay is a stimulating and challenging hobbies. Whenever we completed a seemingly impossible task, we will have a deep sense of satisfaction, and accomplish this one task in the process is very exciting, we often need to break the routine, empathy, in order to obtain the most satisfactory results.


In the cosplay world, we do not always use our ture name.We will call ourselves a unique name, that means, in the cosplay world we are all people with no name. Sometimes some of the cosplayer's family or friends will think when two guys communicate with each other and understand each other without real name, there is no way to become a true friend, and sometimes people do not have a real name is malicious. But what I want to say is that the vast majority of cosplayers are holding sincere heart to make friends, maybe the cosplay world  have a traditional--- without real name, but time will tell, no name will not hinder us to become friends, and friend is not deceive each other.


The ACG world has taught us so many optimistic things.As mentioned above, such as friendship, passion, dreams, convention,and so on.We have learned these things  from ACG, and we will bring the spirit of optimism to the real world, so that our life better, let our joy infect more people.

When people who love anime met cosplay , they fall in love. Cosplayers love cosplay deeply, so we can stick to it, do not care about other people's eyes, I think when we prove our worth and at the same time we feel well, that is enough. Cosplay is just what I want to do.


Cosplayers are often making ​​decisions quickly. When we have plenty of time, plenty of experience, we will put effort into cosplay, we will  complete our work quickly and efficiently , and in a  short period of time we will present our ideas in front of the other who have the same hobby with us.



Many people think that cosplayers are rare persons, do you think so? In my opinion, maybe in 10 years ago, cosplay is not the mainstream hobby, but a decade later, today, cosplay culture has been integrated into the mainstream culture, more and more people begin to understand, people who wearing strange clothes , strange wigs,strange make-up are cosplayers, the reason why they look strange is because they play a role in the anime!

Cosplayers are not traditional OTAKU(is a Japanese term that refers to people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime and manga fandom--FROM WIKIPEDIA).We do not regard ourselves everyday in the second element of the world, we also carried out extensive social activities! In my experience, cosplay gives me more oppotunities to interact with others and more courage to communicate with others. Cosplayers sometimes have stronger social skills than other people, because the people involved in cosplay activities have great age differences, with people of different ages exchanges, we can better enhance social skills.


As mentioned above! cosplayers are genius! We can change waste into treasure, for example, PVC, plastic beverage bottles, wire, cardboard, bicycle handlebar make excellent props.


Many people ask us what the point of cosplay?Play a characters in the game or anime will make your life, learning, working become better? I think cosplay may not change our lives, but make us happy, and this is the meaning of cosplay


One of the goals to cosplay is in real life vividly shows your role. We need to draw the right makeup, choose the appropriate scene, make the appropriate adjustments of Photoshop, and then with the appropriate expression, only by that we can restore our role vividly.

We will not say people who are good at learning are not a wise person.Cosplayers are the group  consisting of  people who are good at learning. Through our own exploration, learning from others, many of us have mastered the techniques of taking pictures, making-up,using image editing software, and we are applied those things to the actual life. 


Cosplay is full of unknowns and is full of x-numbers.In the cosplay process, we will encounter unknown challenges and unknown knowledge, but as long as we insist on learning, insist on exploring, we will have unlimited possibilities.


Someone once said this: "The people have hobbies forever young." Cosplay is such a hobby that makes people forever young .In China, Taiwan's first generation cosplayers have now entered the fourth decade, they still continue the not old legend with this hobby of their own, representatives are Xizhen, Dengdeng, some of them who have married and have a nice job now, but because of the same hobbies, the same dreams, their heart are as young as ours.
