As of Sun/14, Comic Market 80 is officially over at Tokyo’s Big Sight convention center. But before nearly half a million visitors shuffled off to parts unknown, I managed to take a bunch of pictures in the cosplay hot zone.
And, with temperatures hitting 91 degrees Fahrenheit, “hot” was indeed the order of things. Imagine being crammed into a convention hall with all these people with no air conditioning…
Maybe it was just the heat getting to me, but it seemed that the much-feared "No Sexy Cosplay" ban was not really being enforced much. However, plenty of Comiket staff were monitoring the area with bullhorns trying to keep crowds from forming. Here’s what I managed to get snaps of. Check out a future episode of my web show Otaku-Verse Zero for a full video report!
