Does cosplay involve all arts?
I was looking for some paints for one of my further projects and after looking some painting material something suddenly came to my mind... Cosplay is a hobby that involves all arts! But how right I am? I've been analyzing some of them:
- Sewing: Of course you need to sew to make a costume.
- Photography: Cosplay photographers so the job!
- Hairstyling: A good wig always needs this art.
- Makeup: Very important, when character faces are not normal.
- Painting: Props never come in blank, they always need color.
- Sculpture: If you're making props you need to apply this, specially witn wood or foam.
- Cinematography: Making movies with your cosplays, no matter how simple they are.
- Music: If you're cosplaying a character from an idol anime this can include singing and dancing.
- Acting: Of course, that's how skits work, a cosplayers is technically some kind of fan actor after all.
- Comic: You have photos of yourself, you place them like a comic book page and add dialog balloons.
- Achrobatics: If you want to take your cosplay to the next level and want to do tricks over the stage, (Example: Sakura's cheerleading) this perfectly applies.
- Martial arts: Fighting characters are a good skit example.
- Magic: I saw someone here asking for some tricks to cosplay magician Tamako, so here's where it fits.
Am I forgetting any? Am I right or is there any art that cosplay doesn't include?
