A Saturday Spent With Cosplayers

Cosplay - short for "costume roleplay", participants dress up in outfits that portray a specific character usually from various Japanese manga, anime, comic books and fantasy movies.

As just by chance, a week ago, the last of a cosplayers meet were in Newcastle station. A great spectacle and opportunity for photographs they were more than happy jumping into poses naturally for some shots.

They also also invited us to along with them on their meet this weekend gone in Newcastle, with opportunity for more cosplayers and opportunity for a greater set of photographs. We, me and my friend Dave over at Deliciously Dave, gladly obliged the opportunity to get them some event photographs for their sites and thoroughly enjoyed the day as a welcome experience shananigans a plenty worthy of documenting.

An interesting part of culture to be around, a fun group of folks who meet to enjoy the company of like minded people. Not all that different from us togs to be honest, meet up for company, a laugh, food and share an interest.

The people we met up with have various sites themselves, listed below, so if you are interested check them out.
