For those of you who do not know what “Cosplay” is, let me define it for you via. wikipedia:
Short for “costume play”, is a type of performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea from a work of fiction.
Some may think of cosplay as the anime kind you may see at comic con or some other type of cosplay event. But its not just that. Fandoms use cosplay to portray their favorite characters from the books/movie by replicating the clothing the character may wear.
I (Sasha) do cosplay as Clary Fray from The Mortal Instruments series and I also co-admin a blog and a Facebook page called Better in Black that is specifically for Mortal Instruments cosplay. Its a fantastic way to find clothing from TMI, meet fellow cosplay fans and do fun contests! I very much recommend you become a member of Better in Black on Facebook, its a blast (no mundanes allowed)!
Heres some photos from a cosplay photo shoot I did with some friend who played Isabelle Lightwood and Magnus Bane 🙂
So if you like cosplay and TMI I very much recommend visiting Better in Black on Facebook and become a member!
