I've never cosplayed before, but there was Dubbing in schools. Where we had to dress as characters. -- I dressed as Alice in wonder land with my cheshire cat. with a glued on paper smile. haha! Also in highschool we could choose what we wanted to be for one day to collect money from people-- Bazaar-- I was a hospital pateint-- a rasta and a Highlander rugby player.
Huh, at my school we have something similar to that, only its in anticipation for the Homecoming dance. Every day is celebrated differently and the Thursday is usually costume day. Last time I did my face up all bloody is all - - i is good with make-up.
