The East Asian Languages and Cultures Japanese program invites you to a Japan-themed Costume Party! This party is for everyone whether you are already an experienced cosplay practitioner or just want to have fun. Cosplay (costume play), or dressing up like a character from popular culture, has become a popular hobby in Japan. Dress up however you like, so long as it related to Japan. Think about food, verbal jokes, popular culture, art, etc. for inspiration. We encourage you to be creative, cheap and fun. Prizes will be given for the best costumes, and will be announced at 3:00. The senseis will be dressed as a team. There will be mochi and Japanese snacks. Join the fun!
