Yes Way, Cosplay!

WHETHER YOU’RE NEW to cosplay or getting ready for your next con, the Cosplay Meet Up group at Casuarina Library is for you!

Cosplay literally means costume play, where participants use clothing and accessories to represent their favourite characters. 22-year-old Izzy Jarvis says her interest in cosplay started with her childhood.

“I grew up on a lot of cartoons and comics, more with superheros and anime, and I just love dressing up as characters. It’s really fun,” she says.

“I think it’s good to get together with like-mined people, especially in Darwin where it’s smaller. I love gaining different skills and getting advice from others for different cosplay costumes.”

Creating the perfect cosplay costume is quite the art, with many factors to consider.

“There are so many different characters to explore – especially when you’re on a budget and might not have the right skills yet. You make the best of what you have – there’s a lot of op shopping and bargain hunting involved!”

Head along to this special workshop to share your knowledge and expertise on costume making or get advice from fellow makers, with some tools and equipment supplied.

This is a relaxed opportunity to get creative, have fun and meet some new friends. All cosplayers and fans aged 15 years and over welcome!
