Short for "Costume Play" usually geeks dressing up as Manga / Lord Of The Rings characters.

Dressing up as something somehow related to nerd fandom. Usually involves going to an event/convention instead of a 'party'.

Anyone know how COS shoes fit, and if the quality is any good?

thicker socks will solve that one Eye-wink
these are pretty good though - http://www.amazon.com/SGT-KNOTS%C2%AE-Paracord-Boot-Laces/dp/B008LB8KZC

tried the winter socks and they're a reasonably good fit but those pizi laces just don't get enough tension in to the boot and are a bit thick to tie up in the ways you can to make the heel tighter

cheers for the link, will look at them.

Gorilla USA or Fracap? Presumably, this being a fashion forum, you mean boots of a more fashionable persuasion?
