201001291211

Boing Boing guest blogger alum Danny Choo posted a call for entries for his book about the Otacool Worldwide Cosplayers covention. He's posted a bunch of cosplayers from around the world on his blog. Shown here: Alodia Gosiengfiao from the Philippines as The Baroness from GI Joe.

Kotobukiya is pleased to announce the arrival of OTACOOL 2: WORLDWIDE COSPLAYERS in April 2010! In collaboration with Danny Choo and the Internet's largest cosplay destination Cure, OTACOOL 2 promises even more stimulating and groundbreaking content. In keeping with the same concept of "OTAKU is COOL", the next volume of OTACOOL will focus on cosplayers from around the world!

  1. Ok, I have to admit it now: I’m usually a curmudgeon and roll my eyes pretty much reflexively, but “OTACOOL” is pretty charming. Good job.

  2. I read the linked stuff but couldn’t find any age restrictions. My ten-year-old daughter does a pretty excellent Zelda… designed the costume herself, based on a wii still capture.

      No thank you. More barely-legal latex-clad Uzi-wielding ninja assassin co-eds please.

  3. What an idiot! The Uzi is a terrible weapon to have when prone; she should have chosen something from my part of the world – specifically the Å korpion 61E. And where the hell is her knife? May I suggest the Benchmade model 141, specifically the D2 tool steel version?

    PS: yowza. :)

  4. I should like to take this opportunity to pledge my eternal and undying love for Ms. Gosiengfiao.

  5. I’ve been going to Comic-Con for 20 some years as N0. 6 from the original Prisoner, and it’s been fun all that time. It’s good for the soul.

  6. Frank, please post the page of the girl of the photograph. I looked in the site and couldn’t find it.

    If anyone reading this knows what the page is, I’d be grateful.

  7. Nice!! Now there are many Otaku among BB readers… a couple of years ago a post with a kawaikochan like Alodia would have started a flood of moralist/hate comments… ^_^’
