hello everyone, yesterday i went to tft hall in tokyo (odaiba) to the cosmode event and there were 2 or 3 gaijin ! i would like to know if they were some one from this forum jaja i went with my merle's costume.......

INGLATERRA; Hola yo estoy viviendo en japon y yo voy a los eventos de cosplay aqui, lo que te puedo decir es que si no entiendes japones si es algo dificil al momento de preguntar por donde te cambias o cuando te dan instrucciones..... y las personas que trabajan en los eventos no saben hablar ingles :s asi que creo que si es algo dificil!

I don't speak much Japanese at all either, but I've never let that stop me. Maybe I'll force one of my Japanese friends to come with me. Haha. This sounds like fun and I'm definitely going to mark it on my calendar.

Also, does anyone know anything about Tokyo Game Show? My husband says there's some cosplay there and he's a gamer and wants to go for the games.

There isn't a rule about crossplaying for comiket.
I've seen a lot of guys as maids or in sailor outfits there!

For anybody who's thinking of going, I think Comiket is a crowded but gaijin-friendly event compared to the other cosplay events.
You don't really have to be able to speak Japanese, but it's nice if you know basic stuff like how to ask for directions etc.

As for other cosplay events to go, there usually is an event going on
every sunday in Tokyo. Some are all-nighters where you dance the night away in your costume

AX has passed so I'm not so crazily busy so I'm going to start doing some more on my preliminary comiket-based guide.

To the JP folks here: what would be the top 10 cosplay events in Japan? If that's a difficult/semi-irrelevant question, then what are other types of events people cosplay at?
comiket/other doujin selling events/dances/specific series events/etc?

Thanks!

Naraku, you don't have to register for Comiket. You just show up the day of and go in. It costs 600yen to enter the cosplay changing area, otherwise it's all free.

Yay Cosmode issue #12!
There's a Cosplay Event Guide in there that lists popular event locations + stores in the vicinity, some popular sites to hit up and so forth.

Im going to Winter Comiket in December and I am going cosplay.In fact I just bought the plane ticket today. I am looking forward to seeing some of the perfection of Japanese cosplay. I have lived in Japan for a while on the island of Okinawa. However there was hardly any cosplaying done there.

REALLY?! I live in Okinawa now. Is there anything at all to look forward to here, or should I just hold out until next year for Winter Comiket? We're trying to go back to VA for Nekocon in Nov, so if we can do that we won't have the money for Winter Comiket this year. =3

Are you stationed there for the Military? If so are you Air Force or USMC? Honestly the plane ticket to Tokyo and the Hotel would be cheaper then buying airline tickets to go back to the states.

As for Okinawa there is not a whole heck of alot there when it comes to Anime and Cosplay. Most of the decent anime stuff is bought at flea markets and small comic shops. There is only one or two good comic/Anime shops on the island.
