Everything's More Awesome In Costume

If comic conventions have taught us anything, then it is this: Everything is more awesome while wearing a costume.
Don't believe me? Go to Zoup dressed as Batman or pick up your dry cleaning while wearing zombie makeup. (But be careful not to get the makeup on your freshly cleaned clothes.)
This lesson was reinforced at the first meeting of the Mentor Public Library's anime club last Saturday.
The teens painted kokeshi (which is a kind of Japanese doll), ate pizza and watched the first episode of Letter Bee.
All of that would have been cool enough by itself, but some of the teens made it even better by showing up in costume. Here's a shot of Meagan McLaughlin and Katie Hunziker dressed as Sebastian Michaelis from the anime series Black Butler and Rin Kagamine from Vocaloid, respectively.
The next meeting of the Anime Club will be 2 p.m. on June 22 at the Mentor Public Library’s main branch.
All teens are invited. The club will watch Hetalia: Axis Powers and have a Ramen-eating contest.
Come by. Wear a costume. You probably won't be the only one.
By the way, here are a pair of kokeshi, in case you were wondering what they looked like. This duo were painted to look like Naruto and Gaara from Naruto.
