We’ve witnessed the transformative power of cosplay and pop-culture firsthand, and we know that it’s empowering. We understand that it’s capable of propagating change and dramatically improving the lives of those it touches, and that’s why the team here at The Neo Tokyo Project is committed to cosplaying for social causes.
Make-A-Wish Foundation is a charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, and as cosplayers, we figured we could help do our part by going the distance and doing what we did best – walking the walk in costume together with Make-A-Wish Foundation volunteers, and posing for pictures with donors along Orchard Road (troopers from the 501st Legion Singapore Garrison were doing the same in Newton).
It was four hours well spent, and it was really heartening to know that our presence made a real difference. It’s positive affirmation that cosplayers can give back to society in our own unique way, and motivation for us to be more socially active and to do even better next year.
Here’s a video interview with Crimson after the Charity Cosplay Walk:
Project Zen also produced a video about the charity cosplay walk, so check it out below:
