I got a project assigned that's due in a week.
I have to give a 5-7 minute presentation/demonstration/speech about one of my hobbies, and I chose cosplay.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks that I could include? I've got an overall idea of what I'm going to do, but it would be cool if I could include tips from other coplayers besides myself.
I'd be happy to contribute, but "cosplay" is rather vague... what aspect of cosplay are you going to go into / explain?
As a general thought, perhaps you could mention the popularity of "cross-play" within the category... or how duct tape can help save any costume!!! Maybe include some tips for posing to make for better photo-opps?
Will you be demonstrating???? If so, which character??? (my last cosplay was as Shikamaru from Naruto...)
ETA: Cosplay story. I was at a convention many years ago and was unfamiliar with Naruto anime. But there were a group of Naruto cosplayers there, posing for photos. I saw one really awesome costume and asked if I could take picture. My subject agreed and asked if I wanted him to pose. I had been watching the group for a while before I'd asked, and saw some cool ninja poses / fighting stances, so I said "SURE! I'd love that!"
My subject proceeded to take out a book and started reading...
I took the picture and thanked him. I was a little disappointed. Then, I started watching Naruto anime and identified the character of Kakashi Hatake, who has a habit of reading perverted books whenever he has the chance. THEN, I truly appreciated my photo, and now I'm excited when I see that picture again... LOL

Thank you very much :D
I ended up talking about how to choose a first cosplay, and thanks for the crossplay suggestion, I managed to talk about that for a while.
Overall, I think it was a success :D
Thanks for the awesome story.
