Some fans refused to enter Cosplay to move to a small comic exhibition

Ms. Wu, alias "Shadow Moon", has 10 years of experience in cosplay, and today serves as a model for the game "Genshin Impact" for the exhibitor.

She admitted frankly that she did not plan to go to the Comic Con this year to cosplay in her personal capacity, and only planned to cosplay at the less restrictive small comic exhibition.

However, she also pointed out that friends around her are still willing to participate in cosplay. "The Anime Festival tells them once a year, which should bring the feeling of being too troublesome, but they will still participate."
