Cosplay in Shreveport? Shreveport Anime Club establishes picnicky presence

Shreveport Anime Club
Originally uploaded by trudeau
It's a rite of passage for the American creative class. For years smart and geeky American teens and subteens have been establishing their individuality by studying Japanese culture. Copying the almond-eyed slender forms of anime is a pervasive ritual that brings together non-mainstream youth.

Cosplay, or costume play, is another global party form that originates with Japanese youth.

A new locus for anime and cosplay energy is Shreveport Anime Club. Seems they're planning trips to cosplay conventions and organizing their own outings in Shreveport. Sunday they brought color and zaniness to the baseball field in Betty Virginia park.
