Three thousand people came dressed in costume and ready to celebrate the 10th annual Tora-Con at RIT.

Tora-Con is a convention for fans of anime, manga, Japanese culture, sci-fi and fantasy, but organizers say there's so much to see that you don't have to be an anime fan to enjoy it.

Jan Dvorak, Tora-Con chair, said, "We reach out and thanks to all this meshing and working together we are creating a unique experience that even though at the core is still anime and Japan and all that culture we are kind of coming together with this anime and sci-fi convention and I think we are going to see in the future much more of that."

This year, RIT's Tora-con convention celebrated its 10th anniversary.
