That's the only reason you see them all wearing sailor uniforms. It's all cosplay.

I hope so! I think I would make a pretty bad-ass Gundam meister! XD

In any case, I think that this would probably only be allowed in elementary school, and then only on special occasions.

I'm sorry, sweetie, but Japan is not uguusugoianimeland. They take education seriously like any other country. People in Japan don't walk around in costumes on a day-to-day basis... and definitely not in school.

I lived/worked in Japan for one year.

Elementary students often wear their "street" clothes, but once they enter junior high school it's all uniforms and serious business.

That being said, it's not terribly taboo to like anime / manga. Pretty much all of my students liked ONE PIECE and K-ON, and a handful of them liked other things as well... they just didn't openly flaunt their interests.

Lol I'm not going to answer b/c I think you have ur answer so I'm going to add my opinion( not that it matters too much) but personally I've been to schools where you are required a dress code a school with set uniform and a no uniform just not too crazy but with that said I think it would be fun to rebel out a few times and kinda mess up the school regulation but I probably never would and this sounded better in my head lol

What Meru said.

I am currently living and working in Japan. I work at an eikaiwa, but depending on the school kids wear their casual clothes until they reach Jr. High school and then it's uniform time and serious business. Most students try to become the wallflower in class. Everything changes once you hit Jr. High/High school.

So, no. Kids in Japan do not have a choice between their school uniforms and costumes. If their school has a uniform, they must wear it. If their school doesn't have a uniform then they have to abide by their school's dress code, which usually involves not wearing costumes. :P

No. Japanese are very strict and cosplaying if it's not Halloween is looked at as being an "otaku" which is kinda frowned upon. I've only seen cosplayers in akihabara (when it's not near halloween) and children don't cosplay as much as you'd think. Also, most students like their uniforms and there are many fashionable uniforms in this country, why would they cosplay? Uniforms over here are almost a symbol of youth. So I doubt they would cosplay unless it's a special event. They wear those uniforms all the time, I swear (well, once they get to middle school at least).
