Cosplay 2013 in Kuwait National Library

Japanese Popular Culture Festival main event
September 12-13, 2013 Thursday-Friday

“In pursuing a ‘way,’ Japanese typically move beyond an interest in craftsmanship to a kind of sacred search for the ultimate.” ― Morinosuke Kawaguchi

Cosplay, short for "costume play", is an activity in which participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea from a work of fiction. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered on role play.

In cooperation with the Ministry of Youth Affairs and the Japanese Embassy, Japanese Pop Culture Festival held at the National Library of Kuwait on September 12 - 13 starting from 6PM. The Festival includes various events, among them was the cosplay contest. Free admission to all!
 

On DAY 1; stock music and best 10 cosplays will advance to day 2. Each cosplayer has 15 - 20 seconds to show their cosplay off to the judges. On DAY 2, (top 10); bring their own soundtrack and have up to 1 minute to display cosplay moves. Prizes at 1st: 200KD; 2nd: 100KD; 3rd: 50KD

The winner of this event was Sasuke / Grell Sutcliff (thumbs-up for his over-all impact).
