Cosplay is very popular nowadays , it's almost a trend . Some say its used to express themselves while others do not agree .
Any take on this ? :scratchhead:

Not allowed.
Can't really put a finger to it, just feel it's unhealthy, unrealistic & waste money. :skeptical:

I personally would not allow too . Why waste hundreds of dollars on a costume when you can use it wisely or donate to charity?

A parent once told me that it is our fault.

We planted the cosplay seed when we dressed our little ones as princesses, super heroes, etc

I'm not sure le. I guess depends on how obsessive.
If ad hoc basis, just for fun or class performance, I'm fine.

Actually, all I have to tell them is they have to pay for their own costumes. I think my girls would lose interest immediately, they are so giam :laugh:

I don't dress my girls up as princesses though.
They said those clothes are super not comfy.

Cosplay should be 15 and above, so I assume they will pay or make the costumes themselves.

My boys love to play dress up, and so does hubby's side of the family. My boys have different hats (collected from various parties), cloaks (MIL sewed them), gloves (bought), wands (FIL made them) and stick on tattoos. I can imagine them doing cosplay or dressing up as Star Wars characters. Just no Underwear Man allowed.

My daughter will participate in every cosplay event that she can make it.

She will buy something and then from there, modify it to a character.

She has been into cosplay since about 15 years old and now in UK, still attending cosplay events there.

To her, cosplay is an 'art', it's a blood-and-sweat effort of people that she enjoys seeing their work...
