Anime costumes have become popular for year-round fun, but for those who don’t feel comfortable with day-to-day cos play (the act of dressing like manga characters), then Halloween is the perfect opportunity to try it out.
Some people are coming up with costumes that looks so cartoon-like, they look amazing when spotted in real life. Typically these costumes include over-sized featured and colours which offer massive visual impact.

Cos play provides a very unique approach to Halloween, so look out for events like the Cosplay Lab where you’ll be joined by other manga fans.
