A Transformation Workshop will be held during Nisei Week at the Far East Lounge, 353 E. First St. (between Central and San Pedro) in Little Tokyo, on Sunday, Aug. 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 pm. and Sunday, Aug. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m.

This kid-friendly workshop will give people of all ages the opportunity to explore the limitless art of transformation through “cosplay,” the popular activity of imitating fictional characters through costume and acting. Cosplay originated in Japan and has since grown into an international phenomenon.

Come to Far East Lounge for face-painting, yukata dress-up, a photo booth, cosplay/anime information, and more. There will also be a mini-exhibition of works by Yumai, a young Japanese animator, in the window gallery.

Free admission; donation suggested. For more information, call (213) 621-4158 or visit www.fel.ltsc.org.
