Cosplay Costumes in the Changing Room, also described as “It looks as if a character is taking a bath by putting his/her outfits in the changing room” (Japanese: コスプレ衣装を風呂場に置くとキャラが入浴してるように見える) in Japan, is a photo fad in which people arrange cosplay costumes in their changing room or bathroom as to make it appear as if the character is in the tub or shower.
The first photograph taken in this manner was posted by a female Japanese Twitter user Kyouya (恭也) on October 30th, 2012 (shown below, left). After being inspired by a text-only tweet suggesting the idea, she gathered the items to replicate the costume of the character she considered to be her Husbando, Shintaro Midorima from the Japanese manga Kuroko’s Basketball (shown below, right). Midorima’s trademark basketball jersey and glasses were placed in a laundry basket in front of a bathroom door, thus implying that the character is in the middle of taking a shower or a bath. The tweet earned more than 3700 retweets and 1300 favorites within a week.
Within nine days, there were 434 tweets that used the phrase “コスプレ衣装を風呂場に置くとキャラが入浴してるように見える,” or “It looks as if a character is taking a bath by putting his/her outfits in the changing room.” J-CAST News was the first news site to cover the fad on November 5th, 2012. A few days later on November 8th, compilations of these photographs were featured on the Naver Matome search portal archives, internet culture site Togetter, news site ITmedia and English-language site Kotaku.The following day, a second collection was posted to Naver Matome.
