Cosplaying has been around for years, but it seems the wow factor has totally been upped in recent years. These days everyone makes their own clothes, props, etc. You name it. They’ve always been able to use new methods to create realistic looking armor etc without feeling heavy.
Just recently, the Anime Expo in Cali was held. In my opinoin, this is one of the best Cosplaying cons to attend in the US. The amount of sheer quality of outfits are amazing. They got everything from game character, anime, and movies. If you’ve never been to one of these, it’s basically a comic con except people go to have fun and dress up as their favorite characters. You can buy items there, watch the latest anime movie/shows and meet some voice overs or creators in person. They also have mini-concerts of bands from Japan.
If you’re thinking Cosplay is strange. Fear not it’s not. With movie studios grabbing rights to anime, we can only anticipate it to get bigger. Check out the videos below for some cosplayers at the recent Anime Expo. Taken by Acksonl who has a nack for capturing these Cons!
