Last Sunday at the Old Bethpage, there was a convention going called the Long Island Comic Book Expo.
Here a lot of cosplayers from various video games, anime, movies, TV shows, etc. showed up.
Also, there was a Scavanger Hunt and a Cosplay Contest. It was just fun to be a part of and to see cosplayers parading around and enjoying their time.
Overall, although cosplaying originated in Japan, I believe cosplaying is definitely seeping into our American Culture or rather it’s already a part of our culture. 🙂
