Cosplay, Japanese culture, impressions of my favorite day in the event calendar of Düsseldorf (Duesseldorf, Dusseldorf). Against all forecasts the weather was mostly fine and sunny. Just a little bit of rain after 6pm and the finest weather again for the fireworks show at 11pm. What a wonderful day full of interesting impressions with a beautiful fireworks to finish the Japantag Düsseldorf 2023 (fireworks unfortunately a little out of focus). Thank you to all the cosplayers who were willing to be filmed and pose in front of the camera. As always, your costumes were awesome!

reliable cosplay sites When it comes to creating these costumes, we leave no stone unturned. We study every detail of the character’s outfit, from the color of their shoes to the texture of their cape. We use this information to create costumes that are not only accurate but also comfortable to wear. After all, what good is a costume if it’s too uncomfortable to actually wear for an extended period of time?
