Cosplayers desire of pursuing such theatrical experience could be understood as the communication and performance of their spectacular individual selves in the contexts of the collective and individualistic identities. Joanne Eicher has an interesting theory—there are three selves manifested through dress via the public, private, and secret selves. In communicating an identity, the public self is revealed to everyone, signaling the demographic features and professional garb of the wearer. Whilst the private self, familiar to friends and family, is based on the clothing of relaxation and leisure; the secret self is a restricted zone reserved for the individual and intimates based on the wearing of fantasy dress. In terms of Cosplay, the players appear to projecting the secret self into the public domain to seize feelings of being escaped from reality and entering the fantasy world where they could be exposed and admired.
