Nan Desu Kan -- "the premier anime convention of the Rockies" (read Cory Casciato's excellent write- up here) -- was held over the weekend of September 10-12, 2010 in Denver. And by far, the most popular event of the weekend was the cosplay (short for "costume play") contest. Photographer Kate Levy was there and brings back these 50 memorable costumes of Nan Desu Kan. Below are a few highlights. View full Cosplay at Nan Desu Kan slideshow View full Cosplay at Nan Desu Kan slideshow View full Cosplay at Nan Desu Kan slideshow
