Anime Matsuri II

Three Young Lolitas

Three Young Lolitas

8 Photos in This Gallery

This gallery of photos from the weekend’s Anime Matsuri event represent two extremes of cosplay.  One is the Lolita.  Rather than being a specific character from fiction, Lolita is a style of woman in a mix of Victorian and Asian style clothing characterized by elaborate print fabrics.  The other extreme is men cross dressing as female anime characters.  This gallery has been significantly revised since its original publication.

  2. I’ve come to the conclusion that you really do lead a “wild life” 😀 😀 😀 Interesting shots of males and females…reminds me of when I was a kid (a long, long time ago) and lived in rural south central Virginia…about once a year the grammar school would hold an event during which there was a men only beauty pageant…hysterically funny to see these “redneck” farmers dressed up like women 😀 😀 😀

    • Tim it is always a pleasure to hear from you. It is a lot of fun to shoot an event like this, but also a lot of effort. The camera is smart and takes care of itself, but getting people to do what I want takes a lot of energy.

      • Yes, I can only imagine. However, you seem to have a knack to work with people. Your excellent photos prove that. As always, I really enjoy seeing your photos.
