The public days at Tokyo Game Show is famous for its Cos Play Characters. (Saturday & Sunday) Some of the most dedicated fans come dressed as their favourite anime and video game characters. Let me tell you it’s something you have to experience at least once in your life. The amount of time and effort that some of these fans go through is totally amazing. This year I must say was one of the best I’ve ever seen. My Personal favourite was E.Honda and Ryu from Capcom’s Street Fighter series. Initially E.Honda was walking around taking pictures of other Cos Play characters. Approaching the big SUMO, I asked him to pose for a photo, he agreed and proceeded to take off his robe, at that time Ryu had made his way through the crowd and I asked him to pose with E.Honda. What happened next was a pure brilliance E.Honda and Ryu created some fantastic posses and by doing so crowds of fans and photographers mobbed the two cos players taking photos and cheering.
This is what cos play is all about. Rewarding the dedicated fans with praise for all their hard work they put in to transform themselves into video game and anime characters they love.
