"basically dressing up as animé and manga characters. Cosplay competitions held at conventions allow fans dress up as their favourite characters, pose for pictures and win prizes. Hardcore fans can treat cosplaying very seriously, sometimes spending months making their costumes. In Japan Cosplay Cafés - where the staff (and occasionally the visitors) dress up as animé and manga characters - are quite popular too, and many merchandise companies have twigged that making replica costumes and accessories for Cosplayers is a useful source of extra income."
