El rápido crecimiento de personas haciendo cosplay desde los años 90, ha hecho que el fenómeno se convierta en algo significativo de la cultura pop en muchos lugares del mundo. Los eventos de cosplay se han vuelto algo enorme en las convenciones y ahora hay hasta competiciones. Pero donde es más popular es en Japón y otros lugares de Asia. Y si no nos crees, esta nueva tendencia en Twitter debería demostrártelo. El hashtag japonés #レイヤーのオンとオフ (que más o menos se traduce como "con y sin capas") muestra a gente compartiendo fotos de antes y después de sus transformaciones, y algunas son una locura.

De hecho, Forrest J,. Ackerman se hizo un disfraz futurista para una de estas convenciones, y se afirma que fue el primero en hacerlo, así que en los años siguientes aquell parecía un baile de disfraces. Con el tiempo empezaron a ofrecer premios al mejor disfraz.

Se dice que el término "cosplay" se inventó en 1984, combinando "costume" y "play", y lo hizo el reportero japonés Nobuyuki Takahashi, ya que intentando traducir "mascarada" al japonés, sonaba muy anticuado, y usó cosplay para describirlo.
