- Editor Esmee Otter is this weekend in Anaheim, California for the international game exhibition BlizzCon. Here she practiced her favorite hobby: cosplay.
I crawl this weekend in the skin D. VA, a character from the game Overwatch. A cheerful but tough girl wrapped in a tight body suit and armed with a fancy headset.
Hundreds of fans crowded around to take pictures of me, give compliments on my outfit and buttons sometimes an entire conversation.
Cosplay is a fun way to meet new people. So I did the last three years, since I do to cosplay, gained hundreds of friends.\n \n \n advertisement
The hundreds of hours and literally blood, sweat and tears that I was in a pretty outfit stopper, are doubly well spent. Can transform yourself into a certain character that you love to, give a huge adrenaline rush.
Cosplay is a contraction of 'costume' and 'play', meaning that you assume you dress up and role of a particular character. This may be from a movie, a series, a (Japanese) animation or, for example, a game.
