This is part three in my continuing study of Korean Cosplay.  (For those of you stopping by for the first time, check out Cosplay in Korea Part I and Part II.)

This final installment of my Cosplay in Korea series explores the phenomenon of "Cross-Play," additional differences between Korean Cosplay and American, and a few amusing convention stories.

While there isn't anything overtly Not Safe For Work (NSFW), the topics discussed might get you a few odd glances if you aren't wearing headphones.  As usual, if you are a Cosplayer (or Crossplayer) I'd love to hear your input on how these pastimes are different, or similar in other countries.

What is Cross-play?  Check out the vlog below…



What do you think about cosplaying?  How about cross-playing?  As long as you keep it civil, feel free to comment below.
