I never been a fan of cosplay (short for costume play). I can’t understand why grown men or women would want to dress up as anime or video game characters. I thought that was something we only did as kids on Halloween?
Nonetheless, there is a huge community of people that love cosplay. Most that I’ve seen from conventions here in the U.S. look absolutely ridiculous and horrible. The story in Japan is quite different though. The girls there are actually are hot enough and cute enough to pull off some of these silly costumes.
