Cosplay – short for Costume Roleplay A term used for those that enjoy dressing up in character and attending parties, conventions and other social gatherings. If you are a “COSPLAYER” and want to take an active part in making this a fun filled meetup group then join our group. This group is for the members and run and directed by them so please be active, host an event, post in the message boards, add some pictures, help use build some resources links and be active…. It’s a lot more fun and that is what cosplay is all about! People bringing Fantasy into the real world…one character at a time! We are now on Twitter as “CosplayAtlanta” We are currently building a web site at www.Cosplay-Atlanta.com We are also on FaceBook as “Cosplay-Atlanta"
I know that a few of us are photographers, so it might be fun to get together, in costume, and take some photos of ourselves as a group, and then post them in the photo section. I think it would make the group look even more inviting. (I know that some photos have already been added, but...to the best of my knowledge...those photos aren't of us)
Just as the name implies, I came up with a fashion idea for cosplayers, who can only wear their cosplay outfit at cons. Basically, what you do is any part of the costume (pants, jacket, etc.), add it to your normal attire and create your own personal cosplay outfit that unique. Not only are you helping the Cosplay industry, but you're also showing off your cosplay skills outside of cons. At AWA, my organization, I-Studios, will have a panel and I wanted to make a mini fashion show promoting it. Unfortunately, we don't have enough people to do it. I'm just looking for a small group of people help me do this. I really believe it can work and you'll have fun cosplaying too.
