The term “cosplay” comes from the Japanese “kosupure” (コスプレ), which combines “costume” and “play.” In the US, this hobby has been traditionally known as “costuming,” typically from historical or sci-fi materials. After anime and subsequently anime conventions exploded in the 90s and 2000s, the term “cosplay” became more and more popular. Now it’s the middle of convention season, and CONvergence looms next month. Having trouble with a costume? Want your first time cosplay to go off without a hitch? Or maybe you just want to get a head-start on Halloween. Bring your machine and costuming project to this studio session and you will have access to two of our classroom teachers to help with questions as well as make connections in your local costuming community!
