Comic Market–or Comiket, for short–happens once during the summer and once in the winter in Japan. Not only is it the ideal place for creators to sell their original or fanmade works in a safe enviornment, but cosplayers also strut their stuff among fellow fans. Here are some of the awesome cosplay we saw on day one of the event:
