Scene Play - Cosplay

Practice of cosplay – Scene play

Cosplay or scene play products and costumes vary greatly and can range from simple themed clothing to highly detailed costumes. It is generally considered different from Halloween and Mardi Gras costume wear, as the intention is to replicate a specific character, rather than to reflect the culture and symbolism of a holiday event. As such, when in costume, some cosplayers often seek to adopt the affect, mannerisms, and body language of the characters. The characters chosen to be cosplayed may be sourced from any movie, TV series, book, comic book, video game, music band, anime, or manga. Some cosplayers even choose to cosplay an original character of their own design or a fusion of different genres (e.g., a steampunk version of a character). It is a part of the ethos of cosplay that anybody can be anything, as with genderbending, crossplay, or drag.

Portraying a character of the opposite sex is called crossplay. The practicality of crossplay and cross-dress stems in part from the abundance in manga. With male characters that have delicate and somewhat androgynous features. 

Male to female cosplayers may experience issues when trying to portray a female character.  Often because it is hard to maintain the sexualized femininity of a character.
