Heriot-Watt Gaming Tournament and Cosplay 2012 [Results Declared]

Post  Symposium on Sat Feb 25, 2012 2:45 am

Throw in your tips and guides on various "Local Area Network" games and make most of other suggestions.


Sure, you can just toss on a costume you can get an any Halloween outlet or discount store and feel like you belong with the group of people who are just goofing around in clothes that let them live a little fantasy. But "cosplay" is more than just a representational knock-off piece(s) of clothing, whether generic or specific, or of a thing or person or character. It seems to have evolved to mean "how clever can you be to as accurately as possible reproduce the look from a movie, or adapt from a cartoon, etc." And the more cleverness and work you put into your costume, the more respect you will garner from other cosplayers.

Cosplay is the Japanese-esque contraction for "Costume Play" and can include performance, behavior, etc. It's become a full-time hobby for some Hutties, and for others we have met, it's become a full-time career, whether they are actors or creators of costumes. When talking to these folks and checking out various websites, we saw cosplay was much more than just putting on the Darth Vader facemask with the elastic band in the back and a black sheet for a cape!

In our journey to become cosplayers (and because some of us are type-A personalities and simply want to be the best at whatever we do, or at least garner enough respect to be acceptable to any "club"), we discovered some things about constructing a costume and wearing it that we thought would be good to share amongst ourselves. Then being the show-offs that we are, we figured we'd put them up on the Hut so the universe can see how dumb we were about some stuff. It's all fun, eh?
