International Cosplay Day

This 27th of August 2011 will be a day like no other. You will wake up. You will put on cosplay (you will hopefully shower before hand). And you will live without regulations. It WILL be bold. It WILL be daring. But know that out there in the world, others will be joining you on this epic endeavor. Welcome to International Cosplay Day founded by Cosplayer Jennifer Alice International Cosplay Day is a celebration for Cosplayers with meet-ups held in Florida, Washington, DC, Japan and other locations around the world.

For those who are unfamiliar Cosplay is a Japanese term meaning Costume play as coined by Nov Takahashi head of the Japanese Studio, Studio Hard. This is when fans of Japanese animation and comics dress up as their favorite characters by making their own costumes.

International Cosplay Day is sponsored by DC Anime Club an non for profit youth base organization in Washington, DC whose purpose is to educate people in Washington, DC about East Asian culture through Japanese Animation (anime) and comics (manga). International Cosplay Facebook group page is a good place to meet people from your area and start brainstorming of plans. If you wish to have an International Cosplay Day event in your area please contact International Cosplay Day Founder/Admin Jennifer Alice with your event.
