Interesting choice of poses

I dunno. I kinda feel sorry for the French. They used to be fashion leaders but now seem like pitiful followers.

I take it Japan Expo is like the Comic Cons in the world? Or just the photographer concentrated on the cos-play people?

I wonder how many of these people are real cosplayers and how many are paid attendees.

Chacun à son goût, as they say, but there is something desperately sad and depressing about this heavily marketed Cool Japan trend.

Probably none. This has been going on for over 10 years.

Shocking! France should do more to boost its own tourism than promote Japanese tourism! Have like a cosplay event at the Eiffel tower or summin, or like french costumes at Japanese restaurants or summin. Just sayin...
