The event is dedicated to Japan’s Internet video makers, but these in-person cosplayers were who really caught our attention.
The annual Niconico Chokaigi (“Niconico Super Conference”) is an unusual case of Internet culture coming full circle and returning to the offline world. Organized by Niconico, the company behind Japan’s popular Niconico Douga video sharing service, the two-day Chokaigi is a gathering of creators both producing and inspired by online video content.
▼ It’s a good thing the cosplay area was outdoors, because we’re not sure if the FateSaber cosplayer would have been able to fit her sword through the door.
This year’s Niconico Chokaigi wrapped up on Sunday, but we suspect we’ll be seeing some of these talented and dedicated cosplayers again at other otaku events in the near future.
