Halloween is a festival for kids and adults that are celebrated every year on October 31st. On this special occasion, people dress up the way they want and go out to “trick or treat” their neighbours, friends, and family.


Halloween allows you to dress up as whatever you like. You can dress up as a cartoon, anime character, superhero, ghost, or anything you like. But it is just a one-day thing that happens every year.


Now think about Halloween costumes but all year-round. Well, that’s what cosplay is. Just like Halloween, cosplayers dress up in different costumes to copy the look of their favourite character which could be from a superhero movie, cartoon, anime, etc.


Cosplay events are organised throughout the year. They also have cosplay competitions where cosplayers compete against each other.


Cosplay is considered to be a part of Halloween. Cosplayers take the opportunity to dress up as a concept or character. Sometimes they may even go beyond just copying their character’s outfits, they might role-play as characters. What we mean is that they can also copy their gestures and mannerisms.


With the growing popularity of cosplays, it has become an indispensable Halloween activity. One of the biggest inspirations of cosplayers comes from superhero movies and TV series. We will be discussing this in detail in the upcoming section.
