The Cosplay Club of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University held its annual Cosplay Day today. This colourful Asia breed of masquerade had a great atmosphere. The participants role-played Japanese anime characters by wearing special dresses, makeup and imitating the gestures.
In the canteen for a respite, the author asked some participants how they managed to mimic in such fantastic ways. Two of them revealed that they either bought the costumes and special makeup on the Internet, and paid factories to manufacture the clothes based on their designs or made from scratch by themselves. One said that she was from the department of fashion design which the university is well known for.
