”CureCosplayCollection” started in 2009, in the effort to bring more "movement" to cosplay culture in Japan. Cosplay has always been popular among fans, but Masquerade style events were hard to find other than the World Cosplay Summit. It will be interesting to see if this user generated event will stay in Japanese cosplay culture.
