All-Con 2013: Con Report

All-Con 2013: Con Report

A few weeks ago I attended All-Con for my second year. I was very excited to attend because last year when I went I had a cold and so I couldn’t really enjoy things too much because I was so tired. Before I attended All-Con I was always told it was this amazing little gem […]

The Cosplay Photographer and You

The Cosplay Photographer and You

I originally wrote this about a year ago for my Tumblr before I had this website. It is still something that I think is very important for cosplayers to understand so I’m sharing it here now. I’ve been noticing a lot of online cosplay contests popping up lately. The best example is probably the Otaku […]

Ikkicon VII: Con Report

Ikkicon VII: Con Report

I always look forward to Ikkicon, while the end of the year can be an inconvenient time it guarantees me a few things. One, I have days off of work for Christmas and New Years and two, I always get to see my friends around the holidays. It’s also nice to know I will for sure get to visit […]

New Costume Added & the 2012 Year End Review

  Now on with the year end review: It’s a little weird to write up a year end review when I technically still have on convention left to attend in 2012. This year Ikkicon manages to be the first convention I’ve ever attended twice in one year, with it’s time slot dancing right on new […]

Anime Fest 2012: Con Report

I’ve been attending Anime Fest since 2006 so when they announced they were moving out of the Hyatt and into the Sheraton (the former home of A-kon) I was a little nervous. I think everyone was, I’m sure most people attending had never been at an Anime Fest anywhere but the Hyatt. When I arrived Friday afternoon […]

San Japan Mach 5: Con Report

San Japan Mach 5: Con Report

  San Japan is one of my favorite conventions to attend. It’s a large convention that has had rapid growth in just the five years it’s been around in San Antonio, TX. Despite having an attendance of over 9,000 (yes, lol) this year it never felt overcrowded. This is probably thanks to their venue, the […]

Anime Expo 2008: Con Report

Anime Expo 2008: Con Report

  Day 0: I left the office at around 4:30 to board my plane. I got to the airport and there was hardly a line for bag check or security so I was through in 15 minutes. I then located food for dinner since I knew I couldn’t make it the 5 hours it would […]
