This is an explanation of Cosplay from Wikipedia.
Cosplay, a portmanteau of "costume play", is an activity and performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture, and a broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Favorite sources include anime, cartoons, comic books, manga, television series, and video games. The term is composed of the two aforementioned counterparts - costume and role play.

The public is invited to attend this event to learn more about the Asian culture, to taste some good Asian food, to enjoy good entertainment, and to participate in diversity. Bring the family and enjoy this event together.
