My friend already told me and I was thinking of going (I actually didn't know it was a contest, I just thought it was a little event). Is it anime-only for the contest or is anything welcome? I ask because if its an outdoor event, my only summer-friendly costumes are from western cartoons and if there's nowhere to change...

Hi,

The organizers have updated their post, which can be found [URL="https://www.facebook.com/385692368236776/photos/a.398755046930508.1073741828.385692368236776/578984905574187/?type=1&theater"]here[/URL]. They mentioned that the costume can be from anything, so Western cartoon characters are definitely welcome :)

Thanks!
