You know what’s funny about Cosplay? It’s an illusion. It’s become so popular because of its name. That’s it. That’s my theory. You take costume, combine it with “play” and all of a sudden you have this new genre. When you really think about it, it’s simply costumes. That’s all they are.
I mean if I dress as a couch for Halloween is it me doing Cosplay for the couch genre? It probably is. You gotta love the mentality of super dweebs. If it’s got a cool name, then it’s allowed.
You know, like WoW. Oooohhhh. Just call it World of Warcraft will ya?
Anyway, here are some cool video game console costumes
