Cosplay Isn't Simply Dressing as Video Game Characters

Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

Or as anime characters. Or manga characters. Or movie characters. It's simply "costume play", and Japanese photographer Yuji Susaki explores that in this series of photos, "Cosplay: Made in Japan".


Susaki is perhaps more known for his fashion pics, celeb portraits, or artistic nudes. For this cosplay series, Susaki roped in well-known Japanese cosplayers like Ai Amano (aka Julie Watai). These are the results.

Be sure not to miss the tour lady holding a "Cosplay Sightseeing" flag.
