Cosplay and How It Can Liven Up Your Escape Room Atlanta Visit
There’s usually only one time a year where we all show our true colors. We’re surrounded by pumpkins, candy and costumes of all shapes, sizes and colors. Here’s the thing: costumes can be worn other times of the year. Though the usual time does fall in October, there are ways to tap into your favorite characters – Cosplay at an Escape Room Atlanta.
What is Cosplay? Well it’s getting decked out in your favorite costume(s) and taking on a role that is not your normal self. Whether it’s Superman, Harry Potter, your favorite TV show character or a video game character, there’s no limitation on how you can dress up. Plus, there are countless opportunities throughout the year that offer you a chance to Cosplay. However, we recommend tapping into your Cosplay character with an Escape Room Atlanta.
Cosplay Helps You Get More Out of Your Escape Room Atlanta
An Escape Room Atlanta is a different adventure in itself. With 4 rooms available at our Downtown location, there’s enough potential to tap into. Wanting to experience a Zombie Apocalypse? Or try to get away from a Live Zombie? Then dress up as your favorite Walking Dead character. Maybe even a soldier from Call of Duty. Do you and your friends love a great Murder Mystery? Try our detective-based Dreamscape Escape Room Atlanta for you to experience. Go for a Sherlock Holmes look. Whatever you feel channels the Escape Room, go for that same look! Cosplay is an excellent way to express yourself and do something fun and new while doing it. Paranoia Quest wants you to arrive and leave smiling (and in costume)!
Reasons Cosplay is The Best Idea for Your Escape Room Atlanta Adventure
Cosplay events and experiences always promise a great time for you, friends and family. Outside of doing something new with an Escape Room Atlanta, how does Cosplay help me have a better time? Well Cosplay offers other benefits too. What are those benefits? Let Paranoia Quest show you!
- Confidence – A majority of cosplayers began at younger ages. They found a passion and tapped into their favorite characters ranging from superheroes to book characters. At first, shyness is a present factor. “Will my costume look good?” “Do I look silly?” Those questions fade once they meet fellow cosplayers. Everyone is taking on characters and personalities they love. That builds confidence because you take pride in your costume(s). You spend time on these looks and stories around them. Riki LeCotey, well-known Atlanta cosplayers says, “When you take the costume off, you kind of remember. Or you look at photos and it reminds you. If you keep doing it over and over again, it just stays with you. It’s like a muscle memory.” She sees the confidence come through the compliments people receive about their costume(s). It carries over into your day-today.
- Community – Even if cosplaying solely for your trip to Escape Room Atlanta, you’ll find some friends along the way. Atlanta is a hub for cosplayers of all shapes, sizes and universes. Michael Nguyen, a cosplayer and costuming columnist for Trekmovie.com says “Physicians, attorneys, in Ph.D. programs — just people who enjoy expressing themselves, and what they hope the future to be.” No matter what walk of life you come from, everyone is welcome.
- Creativity – A majority of the costumes seen at Cosplay events are handmade. That means hours and hours of intricate stitching, gluing, tapping, and sewing. Complex costumes can take months and mean brainstorming to the max. That creativity gained gives you a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. Even if you haven’t felt creative before, making a costume for your Cosplay adventure to Escape Room Atlanta will change all of that.
- Stress Reliever – Taking on your favorite character is not only a physical change, but a mental one too. You research and get to know what character you are channeling. That helps you take a break from any stress you may have. You’re able to take time and focus solely on your character and being in the moment.
- Fun For All – Cosplay is for all ages! Whether you’re planning a family fun night at Escape Room Atlanta or with work mates, anyone can dress up and have some fun!
