Remembering the fun times you had at Halloween dressing up as your favorite cartoon or movie character? Maybe you just liked running around the house with a cape and pretending you were saving the world.

Back in 1984, a journalist noted at the WorldCon in California the detail and dedication of some of the costumed fans and reported this in his magazine. Thus Cosplay, or Costume Play, was born. It's a worldwide opportunity for fans of many genres including science-fiction, manga, anime, live action movies etc. to be that character sometimes for just their own reasons or to show others their skills in designing costumes like those in the movies or comics.

Look for accessories sections for things like wigs and gloves and the places that really look out for the community and offer a flea market type environment for people that have designed great costumes or accessories and no longer need or use them and have listed them for sale to a market that appreciates cosplay costume and the passion that goes into it.
