The Cost of Cosplay

Cosplay or costume play is the role-playing act of putting on costumes and accessories in order to mimic and dress like fictional characters found in comics, animes and mangas. We speak to cosplay blogger and founder of Cosplay-Fun, Allen Yap and CEO of Professional Costume, Joey Sheon to find out more about the origins of cosplay, what draws people to it, and the community’s reaction to the tragic murder of a 15-year-old cosplayer earlier in this year.
