I've got a question I'm not sure if this is the right place but imo I think it is in the right place

anyway, there are different styles of cosplay, I don't know what they're all actually called or how many there are.

I'll update the list filling blanks and correcting mistakes, can anyone help me fill in the blanks and/or tell me different styles not on this list?

Normal cosplay - humanoid form for a humanoid
Cross gender cosplay - dressing up as a charrecter of the opposite gender
gijinka - human form of animal/monster
Kigurumi - hoody pajama jumpsuit of animal/monster
Fursuit cosplay - a full body suit of fur for a fictional charrecter
Furry - a full body suit of fur for an ordinary animal

Sweet lolita is also known as ama-loli in Japanese. But it's typically called Sweet Lolita in the UK

Lolita isn't cosplay, it's a type of Japanese fashion like gyaru, visual kei, ganguro, etc. You can get different types of lolita like sweet, gothic, classic, etc.
The lolitas on the LJ communities would go mental if they heard lolita being grouped in with cosplay XD.

Normal humanoid cosplays... is just cosplay... -shrug.
A fursuit is a fursuit too, or mascot. If it's a specific character then that's still cosplay too. Because cosplay means costume play.

Thnx, have I missed anything out (I just added cross gender, forgot about that origionally lol)

Personally I would add in Original Cosplay, when you do an original character (though depending on your defintion of cosplaying, you may say this isn't coplaying) or an orginal take on a character e.g. gender switch or creating a new costume or steam punk version, that kind of thing
