Well... that was a whole ton better than that one San Francisco magazine's article, which was near-libelous. I really liked it. ^_^

Cuz, we're so elitist here.... :P

Its another article about cosplay that's mostly to plug a book/author.
Fandomania

I've been seeing a trend of this through the year. News organizations recognizing Cosplay because of a Cosplay related publication.

I guess we need to get off our bums and write more cosplay books / make more cosplay movies

My impression about it was that it was the most recent of a series of articles based around that potographer.

I love this part the most:

No purchase required you just have to register on the nytimes.com site. No fee required for that either.
