Coverage: FanimeCon 2010, Location Filed under: cosplay event — 3:44 am

 

San Jose, CA — The weather in San Jose seemed to clear up Friday, just in time for day one of Fanime 2010. The crowds filled the convention center in the early morning, creating large lines for registration and badge pick up as the streets were brightly packed with Cosplayers.

One of the greatest aspects of Fanime is its location. The sunny city of San Jose, and specifically its downtown area, creates a great atmosphere for the geek culture that thrives at this anime convention. With a bevy of great local restaurants that offer inexpensive and delicious food to a nearby movie theater and ample amounts of parking, you couldn’t ask for more in a convention setting. Well, there is one more thing you could ask for, and it’s the most important part! Downtown San Jose has bountiful amounts of amazing locations for Cosplay photo shoots. From the beautiful architecture around the convention center to the lovely park across the street, you’ll find Cosplayers and photographers abound, making beautiful art that will soon grace the internet, magazines, and this very website.

Coverage: Otaku•Rehab 2010 Filed under: stuff — 2:58 am

A day in Rehab was just what the doctor ordered! Because Otaku•Rehab was held a ways out in Thousand Oaks, the crowd was smaller, but the gathering was much more intimate. Co-Event Coordinators, Bert Le and Nick Kurachi, put on a more homey, summer camp-tinged gathering. The day was filled with events I haven’t seen at any gathering in recent memory. The handful of events were spaced casually throughout the afternoon, leaving plenty of time to socialize with friends, chow down on gourmet cooking and explore all that Borchard Park had to offer.

Coverage: SoCal Cosplay Gathering 2010 Filed under: stuff — 5:09 am

 

Fullerton, CA — It was a perfect spring day outside, complete with blue skies, comfortable temperatures, and a gentle breeze that smelled of all things fresh and naturey. So not only was it a perfect day to be out, but a perfect day to attend the 2010 SoCal Cosplay Gathering! Craig Regional Park in Fullerton was the destination to be for over 500 Cosplayers, photographers, and those who just wanted to have a bit of fun. The park was insanely crowded, with parking virtually non-existent, but there was color and laughter to be found everywhere.

2009 Comic Con Panel Footage!!! Filed under: sdcc — Tags: , , , — 5:00 pm

So about 13hrs of footage was shot for all 3 days of Hall H coverage.  Comic con has shown some pretty mind blowing film footage this year.  The biggest surprise was kick-ass, but unfortunately I tried to go to a district 9 screening thus missing out on the biggest surprise panel of this year.  Some key moments of H hall this year has to be the emotional moments of “Where the Wild Things Are,” the star filled cast of “Iron Man 2,” and oddly some random fan jumping onto the stage of James Cameron/Peter Jacksons Directors Panel.  All and all its been a very eventful comic con, h0ope everyone likes it.  And again, no replicating the footage and/or putting it on youtube.

Thanks,
