Cosplay is a term that comes from a combination of the words “costume” and “play”. It gives fans a chance to express their fondness for fictional characters by dressing up and acting like their favourite characters. Over the last few years Cosplay has grown at a substantial rate in South Africa and throughout Africa, allowing South Africa to start to compete at an international standard. This live-action art form is a ton of fun and we encourage people of all ages, ethnicity, shapes and sizes to join us.
