    Clean Up Job

    October 18, 2014 by Kainee

    Hi, it's been a while since I last checked into the wiki. Real life happened. I am happy to see some people have continued adding to the wiki despite my absence but there have been vandals as well as well-meaning edits that ended up cluttering up the organization of the wiki. I still have no time to prioritize this wiki as if it were a full-time job, which is what's really required to maintain and expand it to the standard I wish it could be at, but I will be checking in sporadically to clean u…

    It appears that Wikia's Lifestyle hub featuring us for the month of October means that the wiki's daily page views have stabilized to around 10,000-12,000 a day.

Cosplay is a Japanese portmanteau of the English words "costume" and "play" stemming from the tendency in Japanese to abbreviate and combine longer words to make concise neologisms. Cosplay was first coined in Japanese (romanized as "kosupure") to describe a hobby where Western fans dressed up as their favorite characters at conventions or in other fandom settings.

Cosplay is relevant to the Real Life Superheroes movement as it is a significant activity in fandom participation, particularly with superhero comic book fans, making it a gateway activity for those who ultimately end up inventing their own personas and design their own costumes to become RLSH. In addition, as many RLSH attend fan conventions while wearing their costumes, they are sometimes mistaken for cosplayers of comic book superheroes.
