“GAME OF THRONES” COSPLAY
John Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Cersei Lannister, Melisandre, and the Night King… Each of these names already form part of the collective audiovisual imagination for our generation. Not only their names are iconic, but also their outfits, many of which are on display at the official “Game of Thrones: The Touring Exhibition”.
Cosplay is an increasingly popular hobby in Spain. The word originates from combining “costume” and “play”, and involves dressing up as a character, whether from a manga, series or film, etc., and recreating their clothes, hairstyle, accessories and makeup. The phenomenon first began in Japan in the 1970s, but has now become a worldwide craze.

To participate in the contest, cosplayers are simply required to upload photos of themselves taken at the exhibition to Instagram, using hastag: #GOTBCNCosplayContest.
