Real Life Mad Scientists Cosplaying as Mad Scientists/Wizards

Actually it is a short, slang word for costume play and can refer to any person wearing a costume from any country. Although sometimes mistakenly thought to originate from Japan due to over-representation by fanatical Japanophiles, it is actually an international phenomenon dating from the times costume parties became popular in the world.
It hasn't caught on in the US, never heard of it. Maybe there are small clubs like the people that pretend to be vampires, or people dressing up for star trek conventions.
