Around Halloween, people start showing up in costume. For those who participate in cosplay, short for costume play, this is a chance to step into more locations. Most cosplayers are proud of their costumes, and rightly so. There’s a level of craft and skill involved in making these for wear, as many cosplayers wear them not just October 31, but at events year round.
This year, the Japanese Culture Club is hosting an event that caters to cosplay, a cultural phenomenon that can trace its roots back to Japan. For $5, you can enter the Cosplay Costume Contest in the North Galleria at the West campus. There is a cash prize, and you are required to vogue some pose, so feel free to channel your inner … um… whoever. Please keep the costumes school appropriate.
The show starts at 11:00, and registration is available the day of the event beginning at 10:30, or you can email the club at TriCJapaneseClub@gmail.com for more information.
