What are cosplay fabrics?

Cosplay is a shortened term of 2 words; costume and play. It is a performance art, likely to have originated in Japan, where cosplayers wear specific costumes and accessories to represent a character from Anime, Manga, video games or other visual media. A lot of cosplayers make their own cosplay clothing, and this is where cosplay fabric comes in.

There is a wealth of cosplay materials available, so much so, that a cosplay fabric guide is often required.

The different weights cosplay fabrics come in makes a difference to the manufacturing process. Natural fabrics such as cotton or silk are made by taking substances and breaking them down into fibres which are then spun into yarns. Hand or machine can do this. Synthetic fabrics are made by using chemicals and other substances to create fibres, which are then turned into yarns to create the fabric.

Blended fabrics; when natural and synthetic fibres are blended, comprises of a combination of both methods.
