The following photos were taken at an anime and game event in Beijing, China. The cosplaying gent is dressed as gay porn star Van Darkholme, aka the internet meme Van-sama.

The images have been circulating widely online in Asia. Via Twitter Simu:

Don’t think the guy is being ushered out because he’s cosplaying as a porn star or an internet meme (doubt security realized either). Instead, it could be because he’s created quite the scene in the convention center or maybe because the chap is shirtless in S&M gear.

It certainly is an accurate cosplay.
