Cosplayers Take Over Oxford Circus
Article by N J (Tak) posted Monday 2nd November 2009
London's Oxford Circus was taken over by cosplayers this morning as they assisted with the opening of a new diagonal pedestrian crossing, inspired by the famous scramble crossing in Tokyo. A team of British cosplayers held red banners across the road before Mayor Boris Johnson made it official by hitting a giant gong, backed up by a troupe of taiko drummers.
The Cosplay Island team were on hand to record footage of the opening ceremony before testing out the crossing ourselves.
