As these characters are usually human like, you do not have to dress up as a giant mascot in cosplay (コスプレ in Japanese, where cosplay origniated). However, the costume itself, accessories such as make up, pupil and hair colour are usually different from main stream styles and colour. In other words, this hobby does cost a bit, especially for teenage students. Having said that, a hobby is a hobby. One would do whatever it takes to have fun.
 



There are various opportunities for cosplay enthusiasts to showcase their talents throughout the year. The Asia Game Show is one that attracts lots and lots of young people to dress up and preform in front of other enthusiasts.


One particular cosplayer that caught the center of attention dressed up as Iron Man from the movie Iron Man 2. Apart from having a great helmet, light bulbs were installed on his palms to symbolize the light beam weapon. Furthermore, Iron Man was making all sorts of moves! It would be prefect if his other friends from team Avengers were also there.
