Nipponbashi/Den Den Town Cosplay Festival ’13!

March 24th was the 9th annual Nipponbashi Street Festa.  Nipponbashi, more known for its name “Den Den Town”, has a cosplay festival every year.  Tons of people come out cosplaying from various anime shows/games.  Just like last year, I had a blast.  My friend Chad definitely made things a lot more interesting because he wasn’t afraid to approach anyone for a photo.  He had a lot of silly ways to ask for one as well.  He also made hilarious faces to every photo I took of him in.

Here are just a few photos to show you what it was like this year.

I swear there were a lot more people compared to last year. In the previous year I was able to go through the streets twice but I just barely made one loop around before the event was over.  If I didn’t remember about this event last minute, I totally would’ve gone as something.  Perhaps as Jigen? Oh well there’s always next year!
