Dominic Macias presents Ejen Chuang's Cosplay in America

Cosplay is a simply costume play. People dress up in these costumes based on anime, video game and even comic book characters they seem to fancy. Eien's project, "Cosplay in America" is a documentation of people who partake of this hobby at anime conventions across the nation.

This collection is a great start to getting past the feeling of seeing a grown person, dressing in costume outside of halloween but it fails to answer why people dress in costume to these events. Perhaps an interview with the person could really give this project some depth.
