Abstract:

"Cosplay is one of the most physically, emotionally and socially intense hobbies in the world today. It involves months of time, ceaseless attention to detail and a dedicated commitment that dwarves almost any other recreational pursuit. The myriad skills, knowhow and effort that must be iinvested cannot be underestimated. ... Split into five principle parts, this book introduces and instructs upon the various skills needed to convincingly undertake cosplay. Giving homage to the hobby's origins and history, the experience of the convention, and the means of costuming on a budget, the authors seek to please all who seek to undertake the hobby." -- page [4] of cover.
