Cosplay in Brunei

Last Sunday (30th Jan 2011), an article about coplaying in Brunei have been published in The Brunei Times.

Quotes from the article, "YOU don't have to be a superhero to have an alter-ego these days. All it takes is a little ingenuity, free time and some handiwork and you're ready to disguise yourself as whoever you want to be. Okay, maybe a costume would be better to have but at least in the times we are in now, we would not feel as silly as when we used to tie a blanket around our necks when we were kids.

Cosplay, a name that is now generalises individuals all around the world who dress themselves up as either cartoon-like characters or even near movie-accurate costumes.

The word cosplay initially derives from the combination of the words "costume play" which is basically is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea.

Brunei has its own collective of cosplay individualists who have secretly walked amongst us, displaying their passion and devotion to the activity. Recently, a small group of "cosplayers" sat down with The Brunei Times to shed some more light on the shroud that surrounds the public eye on Cosplay and their own agendas behind the world spreading trend."

You can read the full article HERE.
