A stranger in cosplay land


Article by PerrinAshcroft posted Monday 8th February 2010

Yes it's another news post from me, don't worry I won't let this become a habit. However you may be interested in a short documentary about a normal guy taking his first trip to a UK anime convention and trying out Cosplay.

This 15-minute version is available to view free online, and apparently a 40-minute version is forthcoming. I for one am glad to see some nice UK cosplay video coverage where I didn't have to edit it myself ^_^

That was an awesome watch,

That was an awesome watch, it's getting me psyched up for kita now :D

(it was also weird seeing myself in a background shot, I didn't realise I was walking like that with the wolf head on! ^^;)

It'd be fun if these docs were done at each con, I'll be on the look-out for someone walking around doing interviews at kita ;)

I was in that D.Gray-man group! I was the Lenalee with blonde hair holding the sketch book! Can't believe I was in a documentary and didn't know it :D

I'm glad that you enjoyed yourself Adam ^_^

Documentaries like this will definatly help agains the the view most people have of anime conventions and its congoers.

I like!

I think it's a genuine and honest documentary, presented by a fairly charming and open-minded guy. I really enjoyed it, I hope to see more videos/documentaries like this in the future.
