Highlights of Comiket 76 cosplay part 1


Sadly, we're not at Comiket 76 in any official fashion this year. Pedro and Eva are braving the tides, but I couldn't imagine making them take photos while trying to carry all of their goods and fight against the language barrier. So, until I can drag Ace0fClub5 with me to Tokyo for this show one year, we're just going to have to rely on one of my favorite Japanese sites Moeyo to provide us with some shots.

I've got to say: I'm really impressed by the crop of cosplayers this year -- not that it's really a surprise. I think that it's because of the higher quality of goods you tend to see people wearing, either because they got it from Cospa or they just had more money to spend on fabrics. I can't really tell how someone would've made that plugsuit costume Asuka is wearing, but if they managed to make it themselves, then props to them.

Another thing that impressed me was the variety of characters. While there are a lot of the standards (Eva, Street Fighter, Haruhi) a few characters that I didn't expect popped in, like the butcher from Fullmetal Alchemist, as well as cosplay from Saint Oniisan. The latter just makes me smile in all sorts of fuzzy ways.

Be sure to check out all the photos down in the gallery, and give some love to Moeyo for taking all these pics!
