Wearing her strikingly beautiful Chun-Li costume, Yaya discussed with us not only some fun tidbits about her history with costuming, but also her thoughts on some of the recent cosplay controversies that have popped up over the past couple years, including harassment, appropriate boundaries, and respect for women.

So what are you waiting for?  You can check out our exclusive Anime Diet interview right here!

Anime Expo 2013 – Cosplay Round-Up

One of the best parts of going to any anime convention is seeing all the great cosplay, and this year’s Anime Expo was no different.  I can only imagine all the hours of hard work and dedication that went into making many of these amazing costumes.


One thing of note, it seemed that there was much more non-anime inspired cosplay this year.  Disney, Portal, and American Comic Book inspired costumes were aplenty, more so than I can recall seeing in previous years.

That said, here are just a few of the characters that were on parade this past weekend.
