Cosplay in Taipei

Fancy Frontier cosplay at NTU in Taipei, 17 Feb 2008

Today I visited Fancy Frontier 11, the manga and anime exhibition at the NTU sports centre in Taipei. I didn't even go into the exhibition as much of the action takes place outside with Taiwan's cosplayers out in force along with a bunch of photographers to capture the spectacle. I also went last year and the page proves ever popular on this blog, as do the photos at flickr. I popped in to today's event and took some more photos. After all the cold weather recently it was nice that the sun was almost shining.

Cosplay at NTU - preparing the costume - 17 Feb 2008

Participants put a huge amount of time and effort into their costumes. Above you can see someone putting the final touches to their costume.

Photographers also put a lot of effort into capturing the cosplayers at their best. Both the photographer and the cosplayer are giving 100% here.
