Attendees at the 9th annual San Japan this weekend won’t have to search too hard for cosplayers and other cultural fashionistas who have decided to explore a different side of themselves at the anime convention. From cosplayers and crossplayers to furries and Lolitas and more, San Japan is an event where the clothes one wears are much more than just a fashion statement or pop-culture shout out. You can thank Suicide Squad for all of those Joker and Harley Quinn costumes that are bound to pop up. Along with the two DC Comics villains, you can bet the Pokemon Go rage will result in a bunch of Squirtles and Snorlaxes swarming the convention hall. Due to their ongoing popularity, you’ll probably also meet a lot of Sailor Moons and One Punch Men, so watch that right hook. Click here for the Current's full story on San Japan 009.
