Cosplay is an activity where fans of popular culture attempt to recreate the appearance of characters; a portmanteau of the terms “costume” and “play”. Over the past decade many forms of “nerd-culture” have entered mainstream popular culture. The aim of this study is to focus upon the UK cosplay community in particular and to understand the motivations and experiences of those who choose to partake in the dress practice.
