Special Halloween Edition: Are you ready for Japanese COSPLAY?

In my last blog entry: Japanese Cosplay puts Halloween Costumes To Shame!, I briefly introduced you to the fascinating world of Cosplay.

Just like little girls are obsessed with being princesses and boys with being some sort of superhero for Halloween, Japanese take Cosplays seriously.

How does that sound to get paid being a cosplayer? Not bad doesn’t it?

Well, in Japan, anime, manga and game companies hire so-called Cosplayer model to promote their products which offers a variety of opportunities for coplayers to make a name for themselves for print magazines, cosplay photographer studios and others.

You see, if you are an aspiring ‘model’ or a wanna-be model, or/but too short for America’s Next Top Model, Car Imports conventions are not your only choice anymore. Contact these guys at cosplaylocator. They might be able to help you out (……I THINK….)

Check out some of these professional quality pictures:

Still not impressed? Well, I suggest you should think about becoming a full-time professional hater.

You don’t have to be a fan of anime, manga or games to appreciate coplayers’ eyes for precision in creating/putting together their costumes. And that doesn’t stop there, these cosplayers make sure they actually BECOME the character they portray. Seriously, .

Well, except for this guy or gal(?!):

Man, WTF?!?
