Teens create cool costumes
A group of Valley teens, tweens and fans of Japanese animation, or anime, gathered at the Snoqualmie Valley Library for a Cosplay costume workshop led by Kim Tepes, a costumer for Youth Theatre Northwest. Participants shared their favorite anime characters and learned about easy costume tips and tricks, so that they could learn to make their own homemade costumes and save a little money by doing so. Cosplay costumes can run up to several hundred dollars if purchased online. That, in addition to Cosplay convention registration costs, can add up for a weekend of anime fun. Tepes’ interest in making cosplay costumes stems from her son Jeremey’s interest in anime.
