The Best Cosplay Ideas For Women

Halloween isn’t the only time of year for people to dress up. Cosplay, or costume play, is a form of performance art where people wear costumes and accessories that resemble a fictional character or someone famous. Cosplay originated in Japan in 1984 and is seen all over the world, especially at conventions. About 64 percent of the people who participate in cosplay are female and it’s not uncommon for them to dress as someone of another gender. These are some of the greatest cosplay ideas for females.

It’s hard to go wrong cosplaying as a Disney character. Elastigirl is both a mother and a crime-fighting superhero from Disney’s The Incredibles. The sequel of the franchise proved she was more than a secondary character because she could go out and save the world, while her superhero husband stayed home and took care of the kids.

Her costume can easily be purchased online or at a costume shop or homemade and it would be nothing without her signature black gloves, mask, and the statement “i” on the front.
