So in Korea the biggest anime convention is called Comic World,it’s held quite often in Seoul and Busan. I’ve been there once and I would like to do it again ,but the next time I do it, I want to cosplay. But it’s a little more difficult here.At home for AWA(Anime Weekend Atlanta),Momocon,DragonCon ext… you normally come in your cosplay, and/or bring multiple costumes with you(to your hotel) so you can change at different times.It’s not uncommon on convention days to see people wearing anything from full lolita,to people wearing necomimis to someone in a full bleach outfit on the street,on the bus,and even on the trains.
But for this convention you have to sign up beforehand for cosplaying. Not that you have to pay,but they really ,really don’t want you cosplaying outside of the convention center.You’ll see a lot of people changing in the station beside the convention area(which is as far away from the convention as you’re going to see cosplay). I plan on cosplaying at the next convention and I’m a little worried because all the paper work is in Korean,of course.I’m working on a Red(pokemon) outfit.I think I might be out of place for one particular reason,I actually didn’t see any foreigners cosplaying last time,so I’m going to stick out.But than again I’m doing a black girl version of Red,I guess I would a stick out a little anyway.
I’m not sure the whole process but I’m remember there was one room dedicated to people changing.Although I don’t have a lot of information on it now,I will keep you updated.
Live Long and Prosper
