ABOUT THIS EVENT
On the occasion of the Liberty City Anime Con, we want to celebrate a Cosplay Day at P!Qtoo (30 Rockefeller Center, Concourse Level, New York, NY 10112). On Saturday, August 10th every customer that come to the store wearing a Lolita or cosplay costume will get 20% off their purchase. Put on your best attire and come celebrate Cosplay with us!
Cosplay, a portmanteau of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture, and a broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject and it is not unusual to see genders switched. Favorite sources include anime, cartoons, comic books, manga, live-action films, television series, and video games.
