My cousin Angie took us to an interesting underground shopping mall in Taipei. We accessed the through the Taipei Railway Station.
There were lots and lots of eateries, clothing and electronics stores.
Most of the stores catered to the young to teen crowd.
Angie’s cute son Daniel with his new toy cars.
We didn’t understand why these teens enjoyed sitting in the mall and playing their Nintendo DS games. Camaraderie? Free air-conditioning?
I went to the ladies room and saw this. I knew they were cosplayers. For more information on cosplay click here. All I know about cosplay is teens getting into their favorite anime costumes. For what reason I don’t understand.
Rochelle and the others didn’t know anything about cosplay so they were shocked and amused to see these cosplayers in action. I had to explain the concept to them and tell them that this was also present in Manila.
This looks kinda scary and too real!
cross dressing cosplayer?
The Maiden Diner fits perfectly in the mall. The cosplayers will feel at home in this maid cafe.
The servers were dressed like maids. In what universe do maids dress like this? In fantasy land I guess.
The ‘maid’ came out to tell me I can’t take pictures. Sorry too late!
