Cosplay is a Japanese term derived from the English words “costume” and “play”. It is a phenomenon made famous by hardcore anime and manga fans that design and create intricate costumes to wear and emulate their favourite characters in. They adorn the costumes at conventions to participate in contests, plays or just to show off their handiwork. Members of the DC Anime Club will make a presentation on the history of cosplay and display pictures showing the many faces of cosplay. There will even be live cosplay demonstrations. This event will also serve as a kick off for the upcoming JICC/DC Anime Club film series. This series will focus on Japanese films based on manga and anime. The first showing will be Love Com on Thursday, January 24 at 6:30 PM.
This event is free and open to the public.
