I found out recently about "cosplay" and think it's funny (just to watch, not doing it myself).

It's an extreme form of RP :)

OK, OK, you caught me, I may like it because it's usually done by girls but anyway...


Few examples:

and probably best cosplay ever: Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite:

Not only the best, but probably also the most successful.

After this she was invited to work in advertising Bioshoc.


But I do not think cosplay is extreme form of RP. Participating in RP in the open air, away from civilization, for several days - it much more extreem then copy the image of some character.

I'm with Ater.

There is a form of RP called LiveRP where you create a character, dress as it and live as that character for a weekend, week or so.

Usually more dungeonmasters has created the world (if fantasy) and there will be events.

I've done this for some years when I was a teenager, it is really funny :) You even get to bash people with rubber swords and throw flour at them as magic :D

My first meeting with a LiveRP troll I still remember very clearly.


You can do historical RP also (Americans re-enacting the civil war)

Here in Denmark you can go on vecation as iron age people. You then get to dress up as them, and you can I think RP and you eat, sleep, live like they did. ANd people come look at you, because it's part of a museum.


But sure cosplay is probably fun, just not as fun :P
