Take off, you cosers!

Cosplay comes to the PRC. (Cosh)

For hyperblaster: MobileTracker says the Chocolate is okay; Walt Mossberg, on the other hand, says only the looks are sweet. Mossberg's full review is behind the subscriber wall, but having read the print edition, I recall his slagging of the phone's minimal memory storage (~64 MB of RAM available for storing music; a card to bump that up to 1GB will set you back a C-note) and his annoyance with the wheel-that-isn't control.

Is Fidel dead? Only his brother Raul and the other insiders know for sure, but Peggy Noonan says it's high time we said good-bye to Fidelismo -and anti-Fidelismo.

Other parents oppose the activity because it's costly. Cosers have to make their own costumes, so they have to buy fabric and hire tailors. The cost of one costume can run up to 500 yuan (US$62.50).

AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA. $62.50.

Not a bad article. Doesn't cast fans in the "Look at the freak show!" category. I don't think cosplay would ever be truly prepared for the mainstream though, at least in the US. A con is such a specific audience and cosplay/costuming caters to it.

Too much or not enough? (And what happened to the renminbi, which I thought was the official PRC money?)

Not enough by far. $62.50 will probably buy you the equivalent of a goodwill costume in the states. The ones that win masquerades are usually in the hundreds of dollars and up. Although it all depends on the materials you're working with.

That's kind of what I figured.

I believe Fidel's state is stable.

Much like Franco's and Arafat's

I miss Franco a lot more than the other two, that's for damn sure.
