Seeing all of the cute-creepy Nara characters around our galleries (and on Park Avenue, and in our store, and in our dreams…) has inspired us to host our very first Cosplay event at Asia Society. Next Friday, October 15 at 7:30 pm, you’re all invited to come and strut your stuff in costume — something inspired by Nara, manga, anime, film, or anything your heart desires.
Emcee and comedian Air Tabigue hosts the event, which features music by DJ Kei. Judges include Jerry Ma, Kai Ming Cha, Christine Norrie, and Reni Mimura, who will also give a special performance. Best of all, it’s FREE. You don’t have to compete, but if you do, there will be some great prizes . . . Stay tuned for more details.
With New York Comic Con and the New York Anime Festival coming up as well, spots will fill up quickly. You can register in advance here: http://asiasociety.org/events-calendar/cosplay-competition
