How to Do a Vocaloid Cosplay Skit

How to play cosplay like a pro

Cosplay is widespread in today's era of screen entertainment; so much so that people have even made it a profession. People who are serious about cosplay make a living on it, and you can bet they are very good at it!

However, nobody starts out as a pro in the cosplay universe. Everyone has their humble beginnings. It usually takes at least 2 years to be able to cosplay decently enough that you can proudly go to a convention with your cosplay.

Statistics also show that 25% of cosplayers have been cosplayers for more than a decade. These are the ones that really deserve the suffix pro. They are the ones who stand out on conventions; even if they don't play that great, or maybe even if they play the same character as others.

10 years is a very long time, but don't worry. It won't take you that long to become a good cosplayer because this article will help you do that. We will answer the question of how you can make yourself stand out as a cosplayer. Also, this article will show you what good cosplayers do to achieve this unique look.

#1. Put the game ’in. Cosplay’.

It's easy to get distracted and just focus on the costume you want to wear while cosplaying. You may be spending too much time and money making the costume look perfect. But even if you manage to perfect it, you still might not stand out like others.

Because cosplay is more than just wearing a costume. It's called cosplay because it's a costume “game”. You also need to play your character, i.e. act as your character does.

Even acting alone will not be enough. A really good cosplayer knows how to embed their personal traits in the character they play. For example, if someone plays Batman, then they have to be able to match their personality traits. That's perfectly possible when someone has naturally Batman-like personality traits. That brings us to the next thing you need to worry about when cosplaying.

# 2. Choose the right character

When it comes to choosing cosplay characters, most people like to go for mainstream characters. That's because they believe that, given how popular the character is, they'll get a lot of attention for it. In most cases it backfires a lot.

Mainstream characters are chosen too often - mostly by beginners. That makes their uniqueness fade. A veteran cosplayer will choose a character who is not too mainstream but is familiar to everyone. That adds an element of surprise and goes a long way towards making the cosplayer stand out.

That doesn't necessarily mean that good cosplayers don't choose the main characters in mainstream films and games at all. They do this too, but only when the time is right. If you go to a convention that's too crowded, you know a lot of other people will try to play that character too. That's why they choose these main characters when going to places that aren't too crowded. Of course there are always exceptions.

# 3. Stay in groups with other cosplayers

In cosplaying you lose your personal identity and become the character you play. This is why people want to see you with other characters that are from the same genre. It would be strange if you played the Joker and walked around with Dora the Explorer, wouldn't it?

Most cosplayers work in groups of friends. The group decides together which film to play, and then each member of the group chooses their character. This works very well because the friends can then easily ask each other for help with making costumes and practicing role play.

If you don't have friends who are into cosplay, that's fine too. You can still play your favorite character and find cosplayers who play the same genre. The cosplayer community is known to be very welcoming so you would have no trouble making new friends.

# 4. Learn to sew

This one is a little on the technical side of cosplaying, but we're talking about pro cosplayers so it needs to be mentioned.

It is true that good cosplayers tend to sew their own costumes instead of buying them. That's because you can only do justice to the costume if you put your heart and soul into it. In addition, the cosplayer can even be proud to wear a costume that they have sewn themselves. Not to forget that you can add small incisions and features that will make the costume special for you.

# 5. Have fun!

Ultimately, cosplay is about having fun playing a character. The fun factor is important because that's what drives you to cosplay in the first place. If you can't enjoy the whole process of costume making, role-playing, and loving the character, then there is no point in cosplay.

There are people who have adopted cosplay as a profession and make a living from it. That's because of how much they enjoy the whole process, and that's key to becoming a good cosplayer.

conclusion

There's a lot more to cosplay than meets the eye. It takes experience to learn that. A good cosplayer never underestimates the amount of work and dedication it takes to craft the perfect costume and get the role play wrapped up.
