Don't miss this talk and book signing with Elena Dorfman, whose recent book Fandomania: Characters and Cosplay is a fascinating look at people who "dress up in costumes—and live part of their lives—as characters from video games, animated films and Japanese graphic novels." The images transcend oddity voyeurism by excavating the individuals under layers of makeup and paint and bubble-gum colored fabrics, and exploring their own struggles with identity.
