Japan’s #1 Cosplayer Reveals The Insane Amount of Money She Made After ONE Day at Comiket

Enako, known as “Japan’s #1 cosplayer,” disclosed the staggering amount she earned from this year’s summer Comiket.

The event, held between Aug. 9 and 12, saw Enako promoting corporate projects, selling her merchandise and drawing massive crowds to an open photoshoot.

In an interview on variety show “Ariyoshi Japon,” Enako revealed that the recent event brought her the longest line of merch buyers yet — more than 500 at a time.

Clearly, that figure translated to whopping sales.

“I’d say somewhere around 10 million yen ($90,100),” Enako shared about her sales in a single day.

Needless to say, that amount excludes the cosplayer’s earnings from her appearances in corporate booths.

But considering the fact that Comiket — or Comic Market — has always been a major avenue for Japan’s cosplay business, Enako’s gains may not be very surprising.

Longtime fans would also know that the cosplayer made roughly the same amount in December doing similar activities.

Priced up to 3,100 yen ($28), Enako’s merch — sets of photo collections — sold out at the event, but they remain available for purchase through her online shop.
