    1. This was a fun book I picked up at the library. In Japan, dressing up as characters from your favorite manga/anime is a big hobby, with many people learning to sew to make these elaborate costumes. It was fun to look at this fan's personal collection. Although, I have to warn you that some of the costumes are quite revealing. For some reason that doesn't bother me when it's in a comic, but seeing a live human dressed in a skimpy clothes is different. But I admire her devotion to this hobby.

    2. Focuses on just one person, renowned cosplayer and Newtype USA columnist Jan Kurotaki, this is mostly a photo essay of diifferent costumes she has worn over the last ten years. There are a few tidbits about each, but mostly it is a pictoral work. I think it will be highly popular with my teen anime fans, and hope I can keep it circulating rapidly without it getting stolen.

    3. Due to the significant presence of technical details about the making of the costumes, it is probably more dedicated to cosplay professionals than to casual fans. Though, the beauty of the costumes and the good-lookingness of the author make it pleasing also for non-experts.
