A Look At Costumed Fandom In 80s England

(YouTube Link)

Cosplayers have been doing their costumed thang on convention floors since (at least) the 70s, and even though their costumes didn't look as cool as they do now cosplayers were every bit as proud to be their favorite scifi show character.

Take a trip back to 1982 with this clip from the UK show Look North West, featuring the organizers of the Scouse Con One convention. It'll make you appreciate how far cosplay costuming has come over the last 30 years.
