The Japan Expo Belgium 2011 was held in Belgium, with folks dressing up like Japanese anime and game characters. And other people beating the crap out of each other.

In the above video, Belgian Lolitas play Just Dance. In the other clips, folks cosplay. Not all their costumes are based on Japanese created characters, which is totally fine. Japanese people don't always cosplay home-grown characters, you know.


There wasn't only cosplay, but even karate and wrestling. Japan loves wrestling!

The Japan Expo Belgium 2011 was held earlier this month in Brussels. Everyone seemed to have had a good time, even those who lost at wrestling.
