Urban Nomad Film Fest (Taipei) Goes Cos

My Japanese doll complex movie is playing in a film program about ‘Cosplay,’ (costume play or animation and J-rock fans who dress like their favorite characters) organized by the Urban Nomad Festival

Let me confess right here that my movie would have been a flop without the support of Sean Hsiao, who introduced me to the Kigurumi cosplayers and the mask-maker King Fabulous; who helped me get the rights to a song by the Taiwanese band Won Fu; who provided priceless info about Taipei’s sex zones; and who spotted “hidden” online student gossip when times were rough.

And thanks to Mia Chen also for being a partner in crime in the cos zone. Check out Mia Chen’s movies as well & don’t forget that we have a big related event coming up in Hong Kong in December 09 entitled

Extraordinary Dresscode: Costuming and the second Skin in Asia
