El and Seth really enjoy making costumes, roleplaying and meeting other cosplayers. Since the ALA conference, they have gone to a couple of casual meetups in Little Tokyo and experienced a bit of Japanese art, food, and culture at the market, bookstore, and shops in the area. I bought a book to learn some basic katakana writing, and we have bought a variety of snacks and candies to try.

The Ellison S. Onizuka Space Shuttle Challenger monument is in the area near the cosplay meetups as well. Last weekend there was a wreath of flowers and some candles as it was near the anniversary of the Challenger explosion.
