Everyday cosplay

Do you ever wear outfits knowing that you’re playing dress-up and no one around you gets it?  Sometimes I wear outfits that Amy Pond wore in Doctor Who or that Claudia wore in Warehouse 13 because I get to pretend.

 My brother has an outfit where he dresses as Captain Jack from Doctor Who/Torchwood.  It’s not something weird or noticeable.  Almost no one at school knows what he’s doing, they just tell him, “Cool Suspends,” which he is all for.  It’s like a private joke that only the nerdiest among us will ever notice.

I think it’s a great way to express yourself. Men get cool ties to wear to work. Women don’t have as many options in a traditional office setting,especially if

Couples Costumes

Couples costumes are some of the best costumes for comic cons.  For last comic con I created a Green Arrow and Black Canary costume for my parents, I’m currently working on a Battlestar Glacatica costume for my boyfriend and me.  My friend and I did a Batgirl and Robin for Halloween a couple of years ago.  Couples don’t have to be a couple , I’ve seen twin brothers and sisters do Luke and Leia.  Fathers and sons can do Batman and Robin, which is awesome.  (RIP Damien Wayne)  Groups of friends can be the crew of Serenity.

I don't know these kids, I just think it's one of the cutest cosplays ever.

It’s not that cosplay isn’t fun on your own but if you can have someone doing it with you it gets more fun.  I enjoy going out in costume with my friends and acting as if nothing is different about us.  It’s fun just to be different sometimes.  What are some of the fun things that you and your friends have done?
