Phenomenon? I came to welcome you to cos.com, but you make it sound like "cosplayers" are a species to be studied. o.O We're just normal people...who like to wear costumes for whatever variety of reasons.

Stop being so closeminded. Just because someone cosplays doesn't mean they're an otaku or a weeaboo.

for sociologists everything is a phenomenon:-D

and we don't study someone we just observe...we all observe people all the time and make some conclusion, whether you sociologist, waiter, gamer, mom, dad...lol

I am interested in that reasons and stuff like that, I would very much love if someone here is willing to give me an interview /answering on 5,6 questions) it would be great...I guess...

the point is very much that what you said, you are normal people but ''others'' don't act like you're normal, the judge you, they all are full of prejudices and stuff like that. actually, I don't know how is it with you, but in Croatia it's like that. I would like to change it, or give a little contribution to that:-D
