[Part 1 of 2 “Costumes? Cosplay!” Question]

Question of the week: What’s the difference between costuming and cosplaying?

To answer this question, we have to know how costuming really started, and what better way to find that out than to give a brief history of Halloween!

Brief Interactive Halloween History

And of course, after that, we had to find a brief history of cosplay:

So where did we end up?

Costuming can be a bit vague (you can dress up a superhero by donning a mask) and passive since it’s you in different clothing whereas cosplaying requires taking on a specific character’s traits and clothing.
