One of the communities I am quite involved in outside of yoyoing is the anime cosplay community, and I used to frequent cosplay meet-ups around my area quite a bit before work life took over.
I got a chance to take a week off this past week and join up with a large group of cosplayers that I had not seen in quite some time, as well as some newer folks who are newer to our group. I realized that only two of the others in our group knew that I had some experience in yoyoing, while the others had no idea, so I decided to take out one of my yoyos and throw a bit for them. Needless to say, everyone got a huge kick out of it! And not just the cosplayers either, but the others around the area (Apparently, seeing Sailor Moon throwing a yoyo is something people have never seen before? lol).
I ended up letting everyone else try out my yoyojam kickside that I had with me as well.
I gotta say, seeing a young Roxas almost choking himself due to swinging a yoyo like a maniac is VERY entertaining.
Pretty much everyone ended up really enjoying it, and a few want to get yoyo’s for themselves. I really hope that some of them can stick with it, cause I don’t know about you guys, but seeing a bunch of Anime characters showing up to a yoyo contest would kind of make my day.
We had a photographer take some photos of us, Ill post those once they’re up, but yeah! Lots of fun!
Any fellow cosplayer yoyoers here by the way? I’m curious!
