You have a lot of cosplayer pics! That's one of my favorite parts in all of our company events (I'm in the gaming industry).

Happy WW!

Pamela said...

Randall said...

I always love your cosplay shots. But your waterfalls are magnificent!

Lagawan said...

nice shots! and so stylish

Nino said...

fashion or costumes? that's a lot of style for teenagers!

Jim said...

I could look at pretty girls forever unless one would bite me (kick also, the bite is more romantic).
My vote is for the second picture, the girl on the left who is not intending cosplay.

Happy WW, thank you for your visit and nice comment. Yes, MacD's is all over the commercial world.

Those are some colorful photos ! Can't decide if they're "regular" clothing or "regular" costumes.
We are going to NYC just after Thanksgiving and you just gave me the idea to cross the streets with my camera. There are some "colorful costumes" there as well.

Have a great WW.

Happy WW! Very creative clothing styles ... and the remarkable thing is that it appears that these folks are heading to work or school like a normal day...

Thank you for visiting my blog earlier today. I invite your blog readers to see 5 Obama Hair Don'ts!

peace, Villager

Mojo said...

I have no idea what "cosplay" is, but judging form a couple of these shots it seems a bit like Halloween.

Exceptional work as always CK!

Hi all WW participants and friends, thanks for visiting and your kind words.

'Cosplay' is combined from the two words 'costume' and 'play'. It is a sub-culture emerged from anime (animation), manga (comics) and video games where people wear costumes to emulate the characters in these media.

See you all in the next WW post. :)
