Kuwait’s Cosplay Scene

Post by Mark

Cosplay (コスプレ kosupure), a contraction of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture and a broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage.

The video above by UrbanQ8 is of all the cosplay from last months ComFest event that took place here in Kuwait. From all the previous videos and photos of similar events I’ve seen, it looks like the local cosplay scene is growing pretty rapidly and I’d say we’ve got a pretty legit scene at the moment. It’s also not male dominant as you’d imagine it being, it’s probably close to a 50/50 split. [YouTube]

    It’s also waaaaaay higher quality than a lot of foreign ones, it’s weird how that happens.

    I always find it interesting how deeply passionate people in Kuwait get over their hobbies, it’s nice that some people can take the extra time and money and do something productive with it
