According to Wikipedia, Cosplay, short for “costume play”, is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play. A broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

This Sunday, August 19, fans of comics, anime and cosplay met at the Centro de los Luteranos on the 1st ever CosPlay festival in Antigua Guatemala.
