The Japanese term “Cosplay” comes from the contraction of the English words “Costume Play”. These outfits can be from popular anime (animation), manga (comic books), movies or simply just any costume. Cosplay is a rather trendy pastime and these hobbists dress up to hang out, strut around and pose for photos.
On my recent trip to Tokyo, I made my way to Harajuku on a hot, steamy Sunday afternoon to check out the scene.
