Cosplay - Economical and political impact


Cosplay – Economical and political impact? How?
What does it mean? Where is the connection?
Who is benefitting? Just a hobby?

During the early years economic and political stakeholders didn't take cosplay serious, but cosplay developed and now it is good
business and advertising for all involved parties.
Cosplay is much more than just wearing a costume.
New events, dawn of the internet, new technical developments and growing acceptance and interest of general media lead to
spread cosplay more and more.
Now it is normal that companies sponsor cosplay events or contest and many politicians support conventions.
