Teen Cosplay Party

Barth Community Room
Oct 22nd @ 3:15pm

San Gabriel Valley teens (grades 7-12) are invited to celebrate Halloween early at the Crowell Public Library’s first-ever Teen Cosplay Party. The party will be held in the Barth Community Room on Friday, October 22nd at 3:15pm. Teens are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite anime or manga character. Other inspirations for cosplay include: superheroes, sci-fi and fantasy characters, American cartoon characters, and any other literary and film characters or even concepts!

Cosplay can be summed up in this simple equation: Cosplay=Costume+Roleplay. Cosplay can be much more than being in costume—cosplayers walk like their character, talk like their character, dress like their character, be their character.

There’s more: festivities include games, treats, music and prizes. Games include speed charades, Mafia--with an anime role-playing twist!-- and Apples to Apples. Party-goers will enjoy Japanese snacks and desserts and make their own candy sushi. The first thirty guests to arrive will receive a raffle ticket for a Borders gift-card. Prizes will also be awarded for the best costume.

Teens are encouraged to bring their friends to the Teen Cosplay Party. Registration is not required and the event is free! Teens wearing inappropriate attire will not be admitted. No weapons or masks, please. Call the library for details or e-mail Carrie Wilson at The Teen Cosplay Halloween Party is sponsored by the Friends of the Crowell Public Library.
