Okay, so technically this event is in Washington DC, but it looks pretty interesting.

"Over two weeks, the Kennedy Center brings together more than 450 artists, more than 40 performances, and more than a dozen free events to showcase the best Japanese theater and dance, music and fashion, architecture and sculpture, poetry and literature, photography and film. February 5-17, don't miss this living celebration of the artistic innovator that is Japan… the "floating island" whose modest size belies its stunning global impact."

Here's the link for more infortmation: http://www.kennedy-center.org/programs/festivals/07-08/japan/index.cfm

It runs from the Feb. 5 through Feb. 17, running into Katsucon. I won't go during Katsucon for sure, but is anyone else thinking we can get ourselves excited for the con by going and [maybe] cosplaying there ahead of time?

I'm not sure if they'll allow it in the theater, IMO... but it still looks like fun, right? =D

As much as it looks interesting, it might not be realistic to cosplay at it. Best wait for the annual cherry blossom festival in late march.

Now other than that, it looks like a great event to experience some Japan culture. :D

If you're an EGL fan, there is one concert that's encouraging people to dress up in their best outfits.

I understand your point, but let's face it. All the crazy otaku are gonna do some lolita thing or some ninja thing. Why don't we slightly sane cosplayers one-up the Hot Topic ninjas? >D

Good question. Something warm. xD

If my friend can come with me, we might do Catgirl Lolitas, but I was thinking more of Misa or Deidara.
