BACK TO VALLEN'S
"IN ANOTHER WORLD" PHOTO ESSAY

This fellow is dressed as Tidus, the lead character from the Final Fantasy X game. I saw the same fan at last year's 2001 convention dressed perfectly as Vash the Stampede from the series Trigun. Some fans, like this fellow, have almost made cosplay a profession. Their commitment to costume role playing is a vital part of any anime convention. Now, if we could just get people to look like this everyday!
