Cosplay or costume play is a performance art where people dress up and pretend to be a fictional (or real) character. It has been quite a trend in Indonesia, especially among anime and superhero fans.
Last week, Jogjakarta held Cosplay Live Action Show: Hybrid (CLAS:H), one of the biggest cosplay events in Indonesia.
The event was CLAS:H's first stop before the tour continues to Surabaya, Medan, Bandung and Jakarta in coming weeks.
We didn't get to join the festivities, but the pictures of Jogja cosplayers are more than enough to prove that they are among the best and most hilarious cosplayers out there.
Here are ten of our favorites, taken from the organizer's Facebook page.
1. Let's start from the coolest anime characters. Here's a Saber Prototype.
2. Here is Hanzo Hattori from Samurai Warrior 4.
3. We also have Graphite from Kamen Rider series.
4. Then, we have the well-loved and cute character from Studio Ghibli, Totoro.
5. Things might get weird from now on as we have infamous social media personality @awkarin in her Badass video clip outfit. And yes, that's a guy.
6. Why stop at @awkarin? This guy becomes the horse @awkarin rides in Badass video clip.
7. It's not a party unless social media personality slash rapper Young Lex joins.
8. Then it gets political as Sandiaga Uno delivers his trademark OKE-OCE sign.
9. Kang Komar from soap opera 'Preman Pensiun' also makes an appearance.
10. To end it all, we have Nusret Gökçe a.k.a. #SaltBae, 2017's most popular meme so far.
