Fashion Of Anime Cosplay

anime cosplay

Anime Cosplay. Fashion is bold, distinctive, sophisticated, innovative, dynamic and so much more but I also feel that it should be fun. What you wear should be special and make you feel good. It should take you into its embrace and allow you to walk out of your front door with your head held high, exuding confidence with every step.

Vancouver hosted an Anime cosplay festival this past weekend and we just couldn’t resist jumping out for a look at all the amazing costumes. The hours and even days people put into becoming these fantastic characters was absolutely incredible.

What I loved most was that the convention center turned into a warped version of Alice in Wonderland.

Yes, these were characters and no, this isn’t street style, but you can definitely see a unifying thread from street and catwalk fashion. Have any of you ever had pink, blue or red hair? How about that school girl look with a plaid mini and knee socks? Looking back on all the crazy styles I have worked my way through, it’s fun to see how in the end all fashion is somehow connected.

While I do approach fashion seriously I really feel that it shouldn’t be taken to seriously. It should be the perfect opportunity for us to let our creativity flow, to open our hearts and enjoy ourselves.

Do you feel the same way? I would love to know what you think of fashion and style! For me it’s all about creativity, invention, understanding the world and translating it through a study of textures, fabrics and colors. That’s perhaps the beauty of anime cosplay. Simply put it’s a way to experiment with fashion while having fun.


Would you ever incorporate any elements of anime cosplay costumes into your wardrobe?

  1. Admit I am somewhat “conservative” when styling together an outfit. Clothes are both communicative tools and a necessity in order to be presentable publicly.

    1. I’m definitely on the conservative side too although I love the idea of these costumes!

  2. wow! it’s not my style but looks really original and fun!

    love, Gongy

    1. Well these are costumes and I have to say they are fantastic!

  3. Fabulous post Caroline, full of colour, whimsy and inspiration and beautifully photographed!

    1. Oh thank you so much!

  4. Fashion is a way to express ourselves and these guys do it well!
    Come and have a look at my newest post!
    Nameless Fashion Blog
    Nameless Fashion Blog Facebook page

    1. Will do, thanks for stopping by!

  5. Great article!!! Fashion is everything, is how each person wear her/his way of thinking about the world

    1. Thanks and I agree!

  6. adorable post my dear, and yet so edgy
    i would love to follow each other with bloglovin,
    lot’s of love,

    1. Sounds great to me, thanks!

  7. Fashion shouldn’t define us but give people an idea of what’s inside. First impressions can make a lasting impression, especially in social settings. People can and do take fashion too seriously..rather than keeping up with the latest styles, use clothing and accessories to compliment you and your personality.

  8. Very cool…honestly though, after living in Tokyo, I think I´ve seen it all when it comes to “crazy” fashion….. 🙂

  9. I like the My Little Pony-esque hair the girl in 2nd pic has!

  10. I love this photos, looks like you had a blast in this event… I love all the outfits… everybody have a unique style to share…

    1. Thank you!

  11. loved the costumes, can;t really think of wearing them, but enjoyed having to look at them !
    Thanks so much for ur comment on my blog !

    1. I probably wouldn’t wear them either but I do love them!

  12. totally agree, fashion should 1. never be taken too seriously, like u say (it’s clothes after all, not rocket science) and 2. it should always be about having fun, letting your imagination run free and expressing yourself through ur style. clothes can do so much for a state of mind and spirit (sounds too pretentious but i think it’s true). and these pics are so cool! there’s definitely a link between fashion at all levels. for instance for the past year or so, crazy colored hair has been a major trend and who hasn’t worn at least once knee high socks, or a school girl skirt, or both? great post caroline xo

  13. The best part of fashion is the creativity. You can use it whatever you want and play looking for your unique incredible style. Anyway I prefer not to wear weird clothes. I won’t feel comfortable, I know me 🙂

  14. Really amazing and crazy shoots!
    Come back soon to visit me on Cosa Mi Metto???

  15. bem legal!!
