Cos play in Hanoi

This weekend on 25th and 26thAugust 2012 young Hanoians had a chance to dress themselves in their finest ‘cosplay’ costumes, paying homage to their anime and manga favourites.

Cosplay, short for “costume play”, is original from Japan, and features participants dressed in fictional characters from various anime, manga and video games. Other sources of inspiration include, tokusatsu, erotic hentai comics and fantasy movies.

Over the past few years, cosplay has attracted increasing attention all over the world and as well with young Vietnamese. Every cosplay event offers a chance to show off their latest creations and have a lot of fun.

Below are some photos of Hanoi’s cosplayers and there are more on my FB page.
