Cosplayers and the World Cosplay Summit 2009 events

For those who may not know, cosplay, which is short for costume roleplay, is the subculture activity of dressing up like characters from one’s favorite comic, books, movie, and so forth. The activity, which has grown in popularity worldwide, is often preformed at special cosplay events such as the World Cosplay Summit.

On August 1st, the cosplay country representatives, with the help of the Japanese idol group SKE48, reportedly paraded down a red carpet in light rain before a crowd of onlookers. Other activities that day involved another parade and a music concert for event participants, including some 500 other cosplayers. August 2nd was devoted largely to the representative cosplay competition.
