Mad Costumes Across Asia
As regular readers know, we at AsiaObscura love costumes. We’ve captured some incredible cosplay adventures here, here, here, here and even here.
But it goes deeper. Almost every tourist hotspot across north-east Asia has a rack of costumes, a dramatic backdrop or two, and a whole boatload of awesomeness to dive into. Be a Chinese samurai guarding the pyramids of Giza, a muscle-toting Haerbin tiger trainer, an umbrella-shaded geisha girl, or even a German officer outside a mini US Capitol…
All your dreams can come true, in Asia.
