A Japanese Mayor and Governor were at the World Cosplay Summit in Nagoya, and they rule!
Nagoya City Mayor Takashi Kawamura and Aichi Prefectural Governor Hideaki Ohmura cosplayed as Dragon Ball antagonist Piccolo and Space Battleship Yamato antagonist Lord Dessler, respectively, for World Cosplay Summit (WCS) 2011 this week. Nagoya, the capital of Aichi, has hosted the international cosplay event every year since 2003. This year, teams from 17 countries took part.
After D.C. politicians screwed us all over with the debt ceiling, the least they can do is cosplay for our enjoyment (We think Team Rocket would be appropriate)!
