Cosplay lets adults create new realms, lives

Kids aren’t the only ones who get to pretend. Lots of adults are enjoying cosplay, the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book or video game.


With photos and bits of costumes, people who have developed a passion for cosplay gave visitors to the Homewood Public Library on Dec. 16 ideas on developing characters.


Librarian Kelly Campos, who put the program together, said cosplay is one of a series of STEAM programs the library will be hosting to show young and old how creativity may require one to blend art with science . . .
