Cosplay and 11 Questions

Cosplay is a short terms for Costume Play (in Japan it is called Wasei-Eigo). Cosplay here in Indonesia grows as a hobby in wearing clothing, accessories and make up like cartoon character in anime, manga, manhwa, fairy tales, video games, singers or musicians. Participant of a cosplay called cosplayer / layer. In Japan you can find cosplayer in shows or events that are held among cosplayer (Dojin circle),  Comic Market, or attending a musical concert of Kei-visual genre. These days, cosplay or cosplayer are  all over the world, f.e. USA, RRC, Europe, Philippine and Indonesia.

Most of Indonesian cosplayer adapt from Japanese comic books and just 3 weeks ago I saw it on TV that they held a Dojin Circle with Indonesian hero such as Gatot Kaca.

In Indonesia cosplay are categorized as below:
Cosplay anime/manga = Cosplay from Anime and Manga (Japanese cartoon) including Manhwa (American cartoon)
Cosplay Game = Cosplay with character taken from video game/ game.
Cosplay Tokusatsu = Cosplay from Tokusatsu movie characters.
Cosplay Gothic = Cosplay with dark character/ gothic character (including Lolita).
Cosplay Original = A Real Original Cosplay Not in anime/  tokusatsu/ others; or basically have the same base as character in a game: Kingdom Heart. ex. Sora in metallic.
Harajuku Style = adapted from the manga/anime character like Nana.

Last time during the Jazz Market in Nusa Dua, I saw a group of cosplayer walking around, and I swore they own it! They really live up to the character!

These are additional rules that I add for the 11 questions (because the ball is in my park)
1. It is not necessary to continue tagging another 11 blogger should you choose not want to continue this chain
2. You can always continue this chain of 11 questions at your own time, meaning to follow up on this in another 3 years is legitimate
3. If you cannot come up with 11 (eleven), just repeat the other number by copy paste until you reach 11
4. Do all the above with respect and don’t hurt anyone! Meaning everyone counts! If you have opinion, (sometimes) you have to keep it for yourself.

The additional rules are made to make this chain of 11 questions more fun and this is what this all about: FUN, so just enjoy!
