Con Reporting

Kon Wubs You! Boy oh boy, where to start? Last weekend I was up at SFU (or as I like to call it, Doom Mountain) playing reporter for the Anime Evolution Convention newsletter. A few articles didn’t get into the newsletter, and since they didn’t call reprint rights, I think I’ll post them up here this week. It was an interesting experience, writing press format. If this blog is known for anything, it’s the long and wordy posts. I wrote a total of 6 articles, totaling about 1200 words in about two days. It’s not really record breaking, but it’s a precedent I wouldn’t mind applying around here.

The convention itself was the usual crazy assortment of teenagers in silly costumes against the gorgeous backdrop of Simon Fraser University. If you want my opinion, it’s still the best place for cosplay photography. The local voice actors were back to charm the pants off the female fans, and inexplicably, once again I sat in on a very informative industry panel. The band ZZ had a really great turn out and made fun Canadian tax laws, and Robotech is finally, finally returning to animation.

There’ll be more details as the week goes on. Stay tuned!

    I LOVE the picture of Kon. Is that a person in there or just a giant stuffie? Either way, hat’s off to them.

    I hope you had a good time at AE and I look forward to more installments.

    If you look closely, you can see the person smiling through the grill. Unfortunately I missed out on the best Terence and Philip cosplay ever. Check it out at real life comics.
