Disney also specially invited employees to wear Mickey Mouse costumes for tourists to enjoy or take photos. Therefore, it can be said that this group of unknown "Mickey Mouse" dressers was the real ancestor of COSPLAYER all over the world. From this, we can see that COSPLAY's original purpose is still a commercial behavior, not a popular consumption as it is now.
To be precise, taking Disney as the real birthplace of COSPLAY actually has a very important basis, that is, the professional production of COSPLAY costumes worn by Disney dressers at that time. Although in today's COSPLAY clothing, many of them are made by the dressers themselves.
