Starting on Friday, the biannual Comic Market (aka "Comiket") was held in Tokyo. Just like with previous years, the 2012 summer Comiket featured a whole slew of cosplayers milling about and posing for pics. Here are some of them.
Sister site Kotaku Japan and cosplay blog Asagawo were on hand to soak up the festivities with their cameras. Have a look at the parade of costumes in the above gallery -- more in the links below.
Cosplay wasn't only on display outside. Inside the actual event, there were also self-produced cosplay ROMs available for purchase.
