Anime Expo 2008 Masquerade

Donning tutus, elven ears, creepy contacts, kimonos and arsenals of plastic weaponry, anime enthusiasts from around the country _ and even Toronto _ convened at the Anime Expo's Masquerade Saturday night at the Nokia Theatre in downtown L.A. to show off their fantasy finery and watch others compete for the title of Best in Show.
