The essentials of geek culture are inherited by the new generation of cosplayers who promote trends to people who have no idea what geeks are all about.
The gamers (and not only) community remains surprisingly strong on social media, such as Instagram and Twitter, but TikTok has turned out to be one of the biggest surprises of this year. Cosplay was related to many unusual trends of 2022 like trendy transitions, and try-outs of apps like Goviral.Pro, and many more.
But for geeks, cosplay is not only desirable videos of their favorite characters but also a way to get more people into their main hobby. Here, we are keen on exploring how and why cosplayers change the perspective of the whole geek culture.
Why Cosplay is This Popular Amongst TikTok Enthusiasts
Unbeaten visuals and easily recognizable conceptions keep the gaming community engaged over years and even decades after release. Paradoxically, if a game has no continuation and a game sequel is never about to happen, still, in many titles, there’s enough to discuss non-stop.
The same goes for anime, manga, streams, and so on. And yes, we have memes!
What can be stronger than memes, in the end?
So, cosplay has everything TikTok wants and needs-
- The right base for great videos
- Beautiful modern people
- The source for making videos consistently
We will come back to this article in 2023 just to see if cosplay has overtaken TikTok already, or if we should wait one year more!
