Hellen sent in these great costume pics for the MAKE Halloween contest, she writes – “We held a last minute sewing circle to bust these Sushi Costumes out. My friends and I decided to be the mascots from Sushi Express…a popular revolving fast food sushi restaurant in Taipei. As usual, nerdy hilarity ensues….”Link. & details on how the shrimp came to be in a blow by blow session here – Link.

    This year at Anime Expo in Anaheim there was a great Onigiri costume (those triangular rice balls made in japan). The individual formed a onigiri shaped cardboard frame, and then stuck packing nuts all over it for the rice. Sadly I didn’t have my camera at the time (That was the day of the CLAMP live appearance no cameras, no video, no audio)
