It's late December, which means one thing. No, it actually means several things — one of which is that it is Comic Market time in Japan.

Cosplayers came out in droves, and Kotaku Japan has galleries up: here and here. And reader tsukasa1288 sent along photos that document some of this year's Comic Market cosplay.

Yes, Japan has Ronald McDonald, but in Japan, he's known as Donald McDonald. He doesn't usually hump people!

And those girls in skimpy duds? It's December. They must be cold.
