The Idea

Who says you can only dress up on Halloween? If Batman really matches your spirit, and you just can’t bear to keep him in the closet the whole year round, cosplay contests could be your thing.

Cosplay, a portmanteau of ‘costume play’, is an activity and performance art in which the participants, called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character.

Such events are a perfect opportunity to let the imagination soar. The term cosplay was coined in 1984 in Japan that blends the English words ‘costumed’ and ‘roleplay’. It has gained popularity in the past decade. The reason behind organizing a cosplay competition is to enhance the creativity and imagination of the children. We view it as an opportunity for the children to express themselves to the world. An interesting outcome of cosplay is the way it allows people to express their individuality and show off their unique craftsmanship. It’s also a great way for the kids to bond with each other.

Whom would your kids want to cosplay as? Let us know in COSPLAY 2021.

We are immensely happy that CMS Rajendra Nagar Campus I is organizing COSPLAY International for giving students an opportunity to express themselves to the world.

When children pretend, they are using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality...

Eating a ton of candy is only surpassed by the fun of dressing up as a goblin, a fighter, a ghost, or one of your favorite comic book, television, or movie characters. If you really love dressing up like your favorite fictional characters, there is no reason to limit your fun to Halloween. Welcome to the world of COSPLAY!...

Cosplay is an outward expression of passion, respect and love for your favourite movie, game, TV, anime or comic character. It is a live tribute to a persona, fictional or real, that had a massive impact on your mind and soul.

It is turning your wildest dreams into reality for a brief moment...

Art is an essential element of education that unlocks profound human understanding and accomplishment. Gone are the days when academic programmes were the only activities in schools and all students focussed on that. We at CMS, believe in maintaining a healthy balance between academics and extra-curricular activities,...

COSPLAY, literally speaking is the activity or practice of dressing up as a character from a work of fiction (such as a comic book, video game, or television show) but to us, Cosplay is expressions, an amalgamation of both talent and skill....
