On the 2nd day of the event, attendees of the event were astounded as different cosplayers wore their most inventive and creative costumes.  Cosplay came from the word “costume” and “play”. The term was coined by Nobuyuki Takahashi of the Japanese studio Studio Hard while attending the 1984 World Science Fiction Convention in Los Angeles (Yeinjee.com, 2011).
