A wide variety of "costume play" getups from Japanese manga, anime, imitations of favorite pop stars or combinations in between can be witnessed very Sunday in Harajuku, Tokyo's fashion quarter. Casual observers believe that cosplay is a reaction to rigid rules of Japanese society but since so many cosplayers congregate in Aoyama - Tokyo headquarters of world class designers Fendi, Hanae Mori and Issey Miyake, it is considered a reaction to high fashion. Whatever the reason cosplay aficionados put a tremendous amount of effort into their costumes every Sunday. You can't help but wonder what they wear on Monday morning..
