Is Cosplay a Lifestyle or a Hobby?

Cosplay is first and foremost a hobby. I believe that the main objective is to have fun, but I have seen people treat cosplay as a career, constantly competing against one another in a race “to be the best” which removes the fun element from it. In my opinion, there should be a balance of both – cosplay can become an important part of your life, but we have to remember that in the end, we are all in this because we share a love for anime and manga.
