A Collision of Cultures: Cosplaying at the Middle East Comic Con in Dubai [Video]


----------------

From Vocativ:

To many Westerners, Dubai is a conservative city in a conservative Arab state, which makes it an odd place for a convention of risque Lycra-obsessed cosplayers and over-the-top entertainment. Even more bizarre: In a culture where ladies are told to cover up, Comic Con is attracting women in their droves. And they’re not just there to gawp—there were actually more women artists at Dubai Comic Con than male artists, which is in stark contrast to American Comic Con, which is often criticized for its lack of women.
