Japanese pop culture at its most fun, a first peek into this hot new trend. Cosplay is the diminutive for costume play, where Japanese fans of animation, video games, and manga comics -- especially women-- dress up in the latest outfits of their heroines. Devotees spend countless hours and hard-earned yen transforming themselves into their favorite characters. Cosplay Girls offers 300+ full-color photos of young women who have re-invented themselves as street-fighting tough chicks, emerald-haired princesses, spunky schoolgirls, and faux-fur kittens--as well as a few things you have to see to believe! Includes:

* Cosplayers who explain their obsession in their own words

* helpful Cosplay tips

* historical perspective

* vintage Cosplay photo collection

* 23 outrageous sections of cosplay fantasy
