Today marked the first day of Dwango’s Nico Nico Chokaigi event! What’s Nico Nico Chokaigi, you ask? Think back to all the crazy but awesome stuff you’ve ever seen on popular Japanese video site Nico Nico Douga, and imagine what it’d be like if all of it materialised into the real world… in other words, yes, Vocaloid cosplay. Lots and lots of Vocaloid cosplay.
While we couldn’t be there, a number of Japanese media outlets made it to the otaku mecca and covered the event, documenting the state of Japanese cosplay today for the benefit of the rest of us.
We’ve picked out a few of our faves from their galleries. Without further ado, here’s a quick cosplay round-up from Day 1 of Nico Nico Chokaigi!
