It's Summer And Time To Cosplay In Japan

Every August, the twice-yearly Comic Market gets underway in Tokyo. Besides fan-created comics, it draws numerous cosplayers who brave the heat to show off their outfits. [Images: unicorng88 | Ladybeard_Japan | nandakaomo | Souma_N]

Tokyo gets incredibly hot in August, so big respect to the cosplayers in the heavier outfits.

Comic Market cosplay is always a good gauge to see what's popular in Japan. This year, there's more Pokemon cosplay than usual, which makes sense with Pokemon GO out now and Pokemon Sun and Moon right around the corner.


    Average summer temp 26. Incredibly hot?
    Sure wouldn't be too comfortable in the most dense areas but.

      Well i don't know about the rest of Japan, but i was in Tokyo during August one year and it was 30-35 everyday and very humid. Not a nice heat.

    Kikkoman Soy Sauce is one of the best cosplays I've seen. I love it!

    The good, the bad, and the ugly.

    Many laughs from Kikkoman soya sauce, Winnie the Pooh, and Shia le Beouf.

    Is that Ladybeard or someone else dressed as Ladybeard?

    I can never tell, white people all look the same.

    Best ones were the Berserk and Black Lagoon ones.
