The Wonder and the Horror of Japanese CosplayS The Wonder Festival roared through Japan over the weekend. The biannual event is a gathering of figure collectors and makers—as well as cosplayers.

Sister site Kotaku Japan was on hand to capture the cosplay festivities, which range from fantastic to frightening. Japanese websites Asagawo Blog and Gigazine were also on hand, too.

You can see their photos in the above link or check out more on their websites.

The new Wonder Festival will be held this summer, July 29, at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
