I was 90% sure I wasn’t going to write this post. Most of my SDCC photos turned out to be a bust; in fact I’m still not really happy with the keepers. But between the Bishoujo Lady Deadpool figure and the cosplay, I figured there was something worth posting.
My first – and possibly only – anime con of the year just wrapped up! ACen is always an exciting time for me as I get to meet my con buddies and speak to industry folks. But this year’s con was decidedly less business-oriented as I came with a group of friends who had never been to an anime con before. Even so, they wound up showing admiration for great cosplay.
I normally don’t get into C2E2 as much as other cons because there really isn’t much of an anime presence there. But this year I had a pretty good time with all the other stuff at the con. Of course I’ll be dedicating this post to cosplay and some of the other sights around the con – if you’re interested in toy coverage, check out my photos at Tomopop.
If you’re thinking Japanese punk rock probably isn’t in my wheelhouse, you’d be right. However it was a quiet Friday afternoon at Kollision Con and suddenly I heard LOUD NOISES so I decided to check it out. And that’s how I found out about Uzuhi.
I wasn’t able to spend much time at Con+Alt+Delete in mid-December, but this weekend’s Kollision Con was basically a re-do. The Hyatt Regency at O’Hare seems like the go-to place for smaller anime conventions. In fact Kollision Con is the smallest con I’ve been to so far. Maybe Chicago winters are just off-putting to potential attendees? It didn’t have the same density of people or programming as even a midsize con like NDK in Denver. However, as always, I must still bring you cosplay and scenes from the event.
