It doesn’t have to be Halloween to dress up in a costume. Katsucon draws in crowds from all over the US to the Gaylord Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. The event promotes Japanese animation and culture.
The participants take pride in their outfit – some of them are even custom made to extrude creativity and vibrancy. Whatever it takes for them to live in the character they choose. You’ll find that Japanese manga and video game characters are the favorite among cosplayers.
It’s always delightful to see this gathering to celebrate colorful event. And to allow us to be captured in the character they portray – is enchanting..
