Foreign Cosplayers Welcomed in Japan?

Hard to argue the title, but are they really? They may welcome the best, but are the typical middle range cosplayer really welcomed? Keep in mind the best can compete with the best anywhere in the world, but the “medium” consists of kids who couldn’t fit or look right into their costumes, and no, they wouldn’t be welcomed anywhere. The medium cosplayer in Japan? The level remains high across the board at an event like Comiket. (Kotaku – Cosplayers)
