Okay,not sure about this but it seams that all costumes and styles have a place within a group.
The easy ones being: Star Wars (bad guys) belong with The 501st The Star wars good guys go with the Rebel Legion.
But where do things like Scorpion and or Superman go?
To DC conventions?
Har Har Har!!!
Okay, and Halo, Spiderman and other non anime comic and gaming characters. I mean, are they all considered Cosplay? When I think of Cosplay I just think of the Anime stuff. Surly, Spiderman is not Cosplay!?!

Cosplay, short for "Costume Play", simply means to dress up as and pretend to be a fictional character. The Japanese made the term Cosplay popular and is generally associated with Anime characters. In parts of Europe it's called "Fancy Dress". However Fancy dress is usually associated with historical figures at parties, but again it simply means dressing up in a costume. The US doesn't really have their own term for dressing up in costumes, well, except maybe Geeks!
