Where else but Japan could you see seas of people gathered around girls dressed in maid outfits in the middle of the street? I wonder if we could do this here in the states without protests from all sorts of groups. I’m all for womans rights, but some of the girls that cosplay for the public in Japan are making money from it and really enjoy the attention. But then again, that does sound very similar to a hooker. Hmm, ok. Well many of the fans really have a sincere desire to see their favorite characters from Anime in real life. Hmm, role play? Well whatever the case, I would love to see it in the states. Sure you can see it at any con you go to, but to have an impromptu photo session on some street is the real thing.
I feel bad for the people in the back, if you don’t get there early, you dont get the optimal front row low spot closest to ground zero.
This is almost like a competition.
Gotta get the infamous panty shot!
Makes you wonder what do they do with the videos…
I’m sure we will get some of those video cameras here in the states in 2011. (akibablog)
