These Indian Cosplayers Will Blow Your Mind!

A Brilliant Cosfest organized in Nagaland by the Nagaland Anime Junkies

Are you a Cosplay fan or know anyone who is? Did you know that a pretty awesome Cosfest happened this month in our very own Nagaland? Unfortunately, we couldn’t make it there, but from what we’ve heard from our contributors, we missed out on a lot of rare fun! Here are a few photos and also a video from the event to give you a taste of what we are talking about. Behold the 4th edition of Nagaland Anime Junkies (NAJ) Cosfest 2016!!Because as a wise man once said, “When given the opportunity, wear a costume.”

Meet the Team behind NAJ


NAJ Admins from Left to Right : Kuma Jamir (Krauser II), Alo Nanz Semy (Sasori), Rongsen Pongen (Luka), Ayim Longkumer (Hikari), Akumtong Jamir (Gintoki), Biebe (Nanashi), Hito Chophi (Madhatter) [ Ditsalal Anar (Mikasa’s red scarf- not in the pic]

“NAJ was first started as an effort to create a community for anime fans in Nagaland. We wanted to coin a platform where they could share and interact with other fellow anime enthusiasts. We now have a fan following from all over india and our cosplay events are no longer limited to anime alone. We are open to all genres and we try to promote art in all its different forms. Our first cosplay event was inspired by the likes of Comic Con and other cosplay conventions. We wanted to host an event on those lines here [Nagaland], so we did what we could to make it happen. It was a small start but it is still a great beginning.”
