People who wear any of the Anime or Manga gear are called cosplayers. They can be found almost anywhere in Japan because the main drive of this fashion are Japan’s youths. Cosplayers also have their hangouts where you see them in numbers like Akihabara and Harajuku districts in Tokyo. One can get lost in cosplay world as there a lot of cosplay cafes where you find the waitresses serving in costume. There are also costume parties which are held in some night clubs as well as parks in Japan.
Cosplayers can be found at your favourite conventions such as Animazment, Comiket, and many others.You can get items of cosplay at the conventions as well.
If you want to meet with cosplayers, visit maid cafe which can be found predominantly in Japan. In these cafes, waitresses dressed in maid costumes act as servants, and treat customers as masters (and mistresses) in a private home, rather than as cafe patrons.
