Cosplay, short for "costume play", is a type of performance art in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character from a manga, anime, book or movie. We accompanied Ellyz, an 18 year old Swiss girl, in her preparation for one of the biggest Swiss Cosplay contest at the JapAniManga-Night (JAN) in Winterthur, Switzerland.
A film by Niels Epting & Moritz Schneider.
Music by Jens Heuler (jensheuler.de).
Many thanks to Liz, her friends and family, the guys from rising sun production / JAN and Jocelyn Thomas.
