Косплей, как явление, зародился в Японии, там он был развлечением для так называемых хикки, или отаку, людей, которые ведут закрытый образ жизни и фанатеют от аниме. Позднее это развлечение распространилось по миру и стало практически отдельным видом искусства. По сути, косплей — это преображение в определенного персонажа.
Косплеем увлекаются тысячи людей по всему миру, но так как самое главное в нём — это костюмы и грим, удача сопутствует не всем. Но вот Элисон Табита может похвастаться просто нечеловеческим талантом в этой сфере. Ее невозможно отличить от настоящих персонажей!

I will be wearing this on Friday of @megaconvention next weekend! and I will also be bringing it to @comic_con_germany ! . Wig from @UniWigs & heavily styled by myself! code " alysontabbitha " for 20% off! . This pic was posted last month on #Patreon, And I'm currently posting a photoshoot of the Full finished costume! There is also progress photos of this & another new costume, as well as new makeup test for other characters, silly bts videos, quite a few live streams and so much more! Best part you can see (most of) it for only 1 a month and ALL of that for 5 /month. You're also helping an artist achieve a dream & teach others! 💖 The higher tiers are just for the much more time consuming and costly rewards! . . #legolas #legolascosplay #lotr #lotrcosplay #lordoftherings #lordoftheringscosplay #crossplay #alysontabbitha #megacon2018 #megacon #comiccongermany #comiccon #comiccongermany2018 #uniwigs

I've been seeing the #Cosplayersaskids hashtag going around, & wanted to join the fun! I think it's the cutest tag! 💕 . This is me back when Lord of the Rings was is theaters! (& me now as Padme) Arwen was my favorite character from LotR, I remember wanting to be just like her (an elf, & strong, brave, & beautiful, etc…lol ) I've always been drawn to strong female characters! So my mom made me this dress for halloween, and we got some elf ears. I remember feeling like I was an actual Elf Queen. xD . It's so cool how costumes can take you into a another fantasy world as a kid! I still have that feeling when I dress up now. It's pretty neat. 😊 I really love this hobby. 💖 . #padme #padmebattlearena #padmecosplay #starwarscosplay #lotr #lotrcosplay #arwen #arwencosplay

Queen Amidala makeup test!! 💜💄👑 . It's so nice to be doing these more often! After this launch month on patreon, makeup test will be voted for over there! . I am so much more motivated to make content now that I'm gaining the time and support to!! I hope we can reach our goal on there soon! I am working on multiple new costumes & tutorials, and bonus stuff !! I'm gonna be doing a livestream on there soon so I can actually talk to you guys about it and other stuff cause I have a lot I wanna talk about! . It's cool cause it's like being a performer on stage, and the audience is the public, and the team of people that help the show go on, & offer ideas & support are the ones with me backstage, seeing all the behind the scenes & works in progress! Which in this case is my patrons! Before I launched, @kristenhughey Hughey is the one that explained it that way to me, and now having one myself that's the perfect way to describe it! . . #padmeamadalacosplay #padmeamidala #padme #patreon #padmecosplay #queenamidala #queenamidalacosplay #makeuptest #starwarscosplay #starwars
Here's a shot of my #QueenAmidala cosplay! . Thank you to everyone for the nice response on my last post! . I used @treeflx to make the headpiece! and the Red throne gown is from @cosplaysky . I have the makeup and headpiece tutorial posted on patreon! I also have voting open for my next #StarWars makeup test! I ALSO am posting progress photos of a new cosplay I'm working on! As well as early access pics from Wonder woman photoshoot and more! . I'm working my bum off to try to produce as much content as possible! Super grateful for the support, and motivation you're giving me! 💖🤗💖 . . . #starwarscosplay #cosplay #queenamidalacosplay #queenamidala #padme #padmeamidala #padmeamidalacosplay #queenamidalacostume #makeuptransformation #alysontabbitha
Usually I do in cosplay and out of cosplay! But this time I wanted to try something a little different! Especially since me to Padmé isn't as dramatic of a transformation as Padmé to Queen is! lol . I have the Padmé full makeup/costume tutorial already posted on YT! And the Queen Amidala tutorial is posted on Patreon "Pug Squad" + ! . Everything done/made by me! Except red gown from @cosplaysky . . . #starwarscosplay #starwars #padme #patreon #cosplaytutorial #padmecosplay #padmeamidala #padmeamidalacosplay #queenamidalacosplay #queenamidala #starwarsepisode1 #starwarsep1 #starwarsprequels #natalieportman #natalieportmancosplay #inandoutofcosplay #beforeandaftercosplay #makeuptransformation #cosplaytransformation #alysontabbitha
Рэй «Звездные войны»
This a was a makeup test voted for by Patrons! It was a real challenge! I also did a live stream of this makeup test on there! . I love Rey and the new films! This costume was really low on my never ending cosplay list though, since I'm working on many other projects! (Currently posting progress pics of a LotR costume on Patreon!) . The makeup isn't quite what I wanted (our faces are soooo different!) but that's what makeup test are for, and also some characters you will just never look like! Which is totally fine! It was a lot of fun to dress as her though, I probably wouldn't have committed to it, if they didn't vote for it! lol I'll have more voting there soon! .

Took this quickly right before I left to see the early showing of the new #TombRaider movie a while ago! I'll be doing a proper shoot of the full costume soon! Just gotta make more accurate boot covers! . I really love doing "simple" makeup, cause it's much harder to transform your face when you have to keep it looking "natural" so it really pushes me to study features more and learn more techniques to manipulate my face with just basic makeup! . Makeup looks like Jack Sparrow, Edward scissorhands and widowmaker, are actually easier to pull off than stuff like this, because you have more dramatic stuff to disguise your face and hide it behind! . Also I posted this pic to patreon that day over 3 weeks ago and just now publicly! lol Just yesterday I actually realized I've posted about 16 times publicly to social media since my patreon launch 2 months ago, & posted around 80 times on patreon! xD . The crazy thing is I'm not ever posting less publicly, and the quality of my content has gone up. I just have more freedom to post whatever I want, whenever I want to patreon without worrying about algorithm / reach / etc.. . A lot of people also aren't aware you can FOLLOW creators for free on there without pledging, and see all their public post! I even post more publicly on their than sm cause it's easier to keep things in 1 place! lol . Sorry if you're sick of me mentioning patreon for some reason! 😅 It's getting close to the end of the month and you'd have to pledge before April to be able to see new April content + most past content so I like to let people know! It's just nice for there to be site where you can follow creators for free to see their work, but also have the option to support what they do for bonus rewards, so they can continue doing it, and do more of it! I have a lot of respect for artist and creators, cause I know how how much heart, soul, effort, time, goes into their work, and am glad a site like patreon does too! . . #angelinajoliecosplay #tombraidermovie #tombraidercosplay #laracroft #laracroftcosplay

I did a quick #NewtScamander makeup test! 🦎🌱 . I'm so surprised last year I didn't do any new crossplays! I love them so much, and it's how I started cosplaying! There are a lot more crossplays coming this year though! 🤗 . Scrambling to try to throw together a Newton costume for #ACelebrationOfHarryPotter ~ Year V ! (I just used some things from my closet!) If I can't finish the costume in time I'll probably go anyway in my house robe! ❤️💛🖤 Anyone else planning to go to A Celebration of Harry Potter? . This was the cheap $8 ebay wig I used for Elizabeth Swann. I cut off all the hair and re-glued it on with hot glue, then cut & colored it! .

Photography by the amazing @davidlovephotog 📸 . #EdwardScissorhands ✂️ will always be one of my favorite Movies and I relate to the character so much and it has such a special place in my heart! This is definitely one of my most detailed costumes ! SOOO many belts and buckles and studs! All hand created myself! I even drafted the full pattern for the outfit and made the Scissorhand props as well! . If you haven't already seen them, I have all the tutorials for it on my youtube channel, in case you wanted to see how it's made! . . ~~~~~ . Patreon saw this back in April and since has seen some New costumes and makeup test that the public doesn't even know about! 😄 I freakin love having people encouraging & motivating me to create more, I have NEVER made so much new stuff before!!! I also love the feeling of a more involved, personal , community there, it's something you lose on more popular public platforms and I really missed it!! 💖 . . #edwardscissorhandscosplay #timburtoncosplay #cosplaytutorial #crossplay #cosplaytransformation

Сложно поверить, что это снимки обыкновенной девушки в гриме и костюме, сходство с реальными образами какое-то даже чрезмерное. Пожалуй, это и делает косплей таким популярным, ведь он дает человеку возможность ощутить себя любимым персонажем, да и удивить окружающих. Возможно, поэтому фестивали косплееров настолько популярны в мире.
