It is a source of personal sadnessthat I was an adult when I first heard the word cosplay.
Americans have a tradition in kids dressing up for Halloween, but Australia has never really got in to Halloween.
In truth, I have dressed up in costumes more often as an adult for different parties and events than I did as a kid.
But in recent years, geeks have started taking over the world (YAY!) Over time, some of these geeks started breeding, and we now have generations of kids being raised by geek parents. Once they hit teenager years, these kids will probably rebel and get heavily in to sports and muscle cars, but at least while they are young, the kids get to enjoy awesome excuses for dressing up.
This is a collection of some of pictures from around the net demonstrating kids enjoying their parent’s cosplay inclinations.
