Cosplay: From graphics to reality

If you were not familiar with Japanese anime, manga, tokusatsu, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies, you would have be in for a culture shock, if you have entered the Sunway University (SU) campus over the weekend.

Many students were seen wearing all sorts of outfits: maid, nurse, schoolgirl, monster, and many other unrecognizable outfit along the hallway leading towards the campus multi purpose hall. Some of them were blonde and even with blue hair with blood trickling from their eyes.

This is the third consecutive time the Animangaki festival or “cosplay” (costume play), organized by the Sunway University Anime Club (SUAC) on 10th and 11th September was a huge success with the appearance of many popular Japanese cartoon characters in the campus multi purpose hall.
