Hit the streets is a feature included in every issue of The List. We literally hit the streets of Trondheim, either at events or points of interest in the city to talk to locals and visitors alike. In this edition of "hit the streets" The List team attended Torucon — a cosplay convention that happened this summer in Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim — and asked them about their Christmas wishes.


Now that you know the background, it's time to meet the cosplayers.
