Convention Report :: Anime Evolution 2010

Aug 18, 2010

Anime Evolution is an annual convention held in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It officially started in 2002 and, in 2009 was large enough to require the services of the newly opened Vancouver Convention Centre, which was constructed for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. This year, however, though the attendance forecast is higher (well over 5000), the organizers decided to return to the University of British Colombia for the event.

Characteristic Cosplay

One of big attractions of the convention is not the events, games, or the vendors selling excellent anime related products. In fact, it is the attendees themselves. Every year, the vast majority of the people going to Anime Evolution participate in costume play, or cosplay.

People dress up as their favourite characters from different anime, manga, or video game, most costumes are custom hand made by the cosplayers themselves. Many Anime Evolution events focuses on cosplay, including fashion shows, elaborate chess games with people standing in for the pieces and duking it out whenever a piece is captured, and themed gatherings for photoshoots.
