Comiket 79: Cosplay

TOKYO, December 31 – As part of my visit to Tokyo last winter, I attended Comiket 79 with a group of friends and press people. This provided me with ample opportunity to photograph some cosplayers. I had to navigate my way through a sea of humanity to the cosplay area. In an attempt to prevent foot traffic, the event organizers designated an outdoor area between the two halls specifically for cosplay photography. Some of the most noticeable trends were the increase of military cosplay and RPG video game based cosplay.
