Cosplay Kobe

Monday, December 19, 2011

On a chilly December Sunday in Kobe, two young women were preening and photographing themselves.

And not just these two "Pocky" girls (both were holding Pocky chocolate boxes).

Nearby were many young people in eye-catching "costume play" wear.

The source of all of the merriment was not Christmas or Halloween but a cosplay convention at the Kobe Fashion Museum.

Inside were hundreds more wildly dressed young people.
