About a week ago I went to get a Halloween costume at Party City (its a place for party/Halloween stuff), and I asked if there where any cosplay costumes. Well of course the staff-person had no idea what I was talking about, so I had to explain it. I know some people don’t know these fandom terms, so this post is to explain them.
These are some of the most used terms I’ve heard so far.
Fandom– Fan kingdom/ Fanatic Domain
Cosplay– dressing up as someone or something from a TV show, book etc. and acting like that person.
Fangirling– The state someone is in while over reacting about something fandom related
Fangirl/Fanboy– refering to someone in a fandom
Feels– A term used while fangirling
These are only a few of the many, and most people, sometimes even the ones not in a fandom, already know this stuff.
If there is anything I got wrong please tell me so I can change it!
So, are there any terms that I didn’t explain that you would like defined?
