Early this month, the Spring Days Cosplay Festival took place in HCMC’s Dist. 5, drawing a large crowd. Participants were encouraged to wear cosplay costumes, inspired by famous manga characters from Japan and other popular video games.
Free from stereotypes and clichés, the world of cosplay is full of colors and diversity, accompanied with great tolerance. From university students to employees, the young and old were united with one passion. The cosplayers showcased their best outfits, some of which took weeks to make, especially the complex ones.
During the festival, the show saw music alternating between different genres, such as K-Pop and Japanese songs to dubstep and heavy metal.
