TOC Marketing Department Sheryl, THE COSPLAYER !

Before we start this chapter let me give some introduction of what  
Cosplay, Manga and Anime is all about.  : )

Cosplay - short for "costume play", is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Characters are often drawn from popular fiction in Japan( manga and anime), but recent trends have included American cartoons and Sci-Fi as well as other pop-culture.

Cosplayer - one who participate in cosplay.
Manga - consist of comics and print cartoons (sometimes also called komikku), in the Japanese language and conforming to the style developed in Japan in the late 19th century. In their modern form, manga date from shortly after World War II, but they have a long, complex pre-history in earlier Japanese art.

Anime - commonly defined as animation originating in Japan. The definition sometimes changes depending on the context. In English-speaking countries, anime is also referred to as "Japanese animation".
Anime, like manga, has a large audience in Japan and recognition throughout the world. Distributors can release anime via television broadcasts, directly to video, or theatrically, as well as online.
Both hand-drawn and computer-animated anime exist. It is used in television series, films, video, video games, commercials, and internet-based releases, and represents most, if not all, genres of fiction. Anime gained early popularity in East and Southeast Asia and has garnered more-recent popularity in the Western World.

Example : Dragon Ball Anime

Lastly, Sheryl's view of the Cosplay World :

“It’s always an eye-opening experience to see people from all levels coming together and putting so much effort into cosplaying. For me, cosplay allows me to be somebody else for that day, and totally immerse myself into the character’s personality and its background. Also, it’s a very good platform to meet new friends as cosplayers are all very friendly, and we are like a one big family.”

*After doing some research about Cosplay online to write this blog, it was an eye opener for me. 
  It almost feels like it is a different world all together. 
  Cosplay is actually a worldwide phenomena now and there are tons of information on the internet. 
  For those who are interested just type 'cosplay' in your search engine and you will be 
  surprised with how much you will get : )
