WWII Cosplay

One of my favorite parts of the World War II air show weekend in Reading was seeing all the cosplay.

I have enjoyed watching the cosplay movement flourish. Cosplay is simply defined as costume play, in other words adults wearing costumes. It is most popular at Comic Con and other conventions based on characters. It has spread to movements such as Disney Bounding. Most people do not believe they are that character, but are having fun.

I was surprised by how many people I saw dressing in WWII era clothing in Reading. As much of it was clothing from the time period (and not imitation, or seems-like clothing), it helped us step back 70 years in time. There were times you could not tell who were the official reenactors and who were paid guests who came in period attire. 

Here are a few pictures from the event. Maybe next time the three of us will also dress as if we are from the past.
