What is Cosplaying?
Tang Tang is not the first cosplayer I noticed, but he is certainly one that gets my attention. Probably because he is so beautiful, I guess most of you will agree. He made me try to learn more about the art of cosplay. That alone would make him an influencer

Who is Tang Tang?
I can be sure about two things regarding knowing Tang Tang. He is a costume maker and cosplayer. I am not sure if I prefer to think of him as a beautiful gay twink or as a girly gay boy. He also states that he is into working out. I hope he does not change the look and feel of his body too much. The way he looks right now is just fine, in my opinion. What do other fans and followers think about that?
Is Cosplay Homoerotic?
The answer depends on individual perceptions. In my mind, it is very homoerotic. That makes it very exciting. In any case, it proves that nudity is not necessarily more erotic than non-nudity. That applies to homoerotic photography as well. One is for sure: Tang Tang made me another fan of his art and of cosplay in general.
