The term ‘cosplay’ is an abbreviation of the words ‘costume’ and ‘play’. Cosplay is not just dressing up in a costume, but rather portraying and mimicking a character. People dress up as their favourite characters from films, TV shows, computer games, comic books, anime, manga.
This exhibition brings together Estonian cosplayers of different backgrounds, who have cosplayed as a hobby for several years. They have performed at AniMatsuri in Tartu, and JAFF, MängudeÖÖ and HyperTown in Tallinn. Some of them have represented Estonia in the EuroCosplay competition.
