But it was only from the mid-1990s when it became very popular for teenagers and young women to dress up as characters from their favorite anime, manga, or video game.
co051-9817mar22-3.jpg
They congregate at manga, video game, and anime fairs where they pose for hordes of photographers.
co052-9817mar22-4.jpg
They either buy or make their costumes. They depict so many characters that it's impossible to recognize all of them unless you ask them who they are costumed as.
