Lolita Cosplay ACEN 2008 Anime Central photo gallery

ACEN 2008


These photos were taken by me on May 16-18 at Anime Central 2008 in the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL near Chicago.

Anime central is a place were people come together that like the Japanese creation of Anime; their version of an adult cartoon you can say. People come to buy Anime related merchandise, cosplay, go to discussion panels, talk to people, speed date, enter video game tournaments, play Trading Card Games games, just plain hang out, and way more than i can list!

Coplaying, for people that dont know, is when people dress up as anime characters, video game characters, Comic Book characters, Anything Japanese related, Etc.

Lolita fashion is a subculture in Japan. They are influenced by Victorian children clothing. Meaning they are wearing stuff from the old English days. The most distinct thing about them is their dresses and fabric. They usually have on them gloves and umbrella but it varies alot. There are many styles of lolita it seem. There are punk lolitas, classic lolitas, sweet lolitas, gothic lolita, and so on. I dont know much on the subject but i was taken back by how they looked. And also my girlfriend liked the fashion so i took them for her ::cough:: Learn more at the provided website below

I want to thank the people that made ACEN possible, all of their hard work made it a truly great convention. Of course, all of the people that were nice and posed for a photograph for me. Thank you.

Sorry in advance for a possible mislabel or whatever. Im not familiar with lolita fashion so please forgive. For the most part, these pictures are of lolitas. There might be some regular cosplayers in there so my bad.

Very Nice

Unless you can find her on facebook or whatever than i dont know...sorry. I stop random people to take their picture so i dont know anyone. You can always seek someone that makes dresses and see if they can copy and make you the one in the picture. Hope that help!
