Caught the second half of an interesting program called Tokyo Kawaii TV which featured anime inspired fashion. It's not cosplay, but more street fashion inspired by anime in some way. There are designers who take either specific characters or a type of character and use them as inspiration for clothing. There are T-shirts with deconstructed anime characters on them. In any case, it's quite cool to see the fashions that come from intersecting with anime. I found a streaming video of the episode here. Unfortunately, there are no subtitles.
This show also has episodes on such things as Gothic Lolita. I plan on checking what episodes I can find (some are on youtube, do a search for "tokyo kawaii tv" and you should hit some) when I have some time...
