The Word Cosplay

My Anime

Have you ever wondered when the word cosplay started being used and who created the term?

The word cosplay first appeared on My Anime,a magazine wrote by Nobuyuki Takahashi. On an article back in 1983 (damn! I wasn’t even born yet!!), he contracted the words “costume” and “play” into “cosplay”.

Takahashi shared a copy of the magazine My Anime with Akibanana. There’s even an article about “How to build a mecha suit”.
