POLL DESCRIPTION
In another discussion, someone wrote:
…Cosplay is a huge thing in the USA and Japan, something done by teenagers, adults and old folks. Dorks with extra pocket money for going to cons and making costumes. It's wargaming for people who would rather dress like toy soldiers (historical or fantasy) instead of people who push toys around on a table. And there is certainly overlap between the two.
Cosplay stands for "costume play," and is defined as "a performance art in which participants wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character or idea."
