I'll readily confess that I haven't paid much attention to Attack on Titan since the anime finished its run last year, but now that the live-action adaptation of Hajime Isayama's blockbuster manga is further along, I'm b...
Unlock new "adventurers" from iconic Final Fantasy character designer Yoshitaka Amano and a new scenario from Yasumi Matsuno, designer of Final Fantasy XII. Also, Terra Battle received the highly anticipated online co-op mode update that allows players to work together to clear stages and adds summons to the battlefield.
With their long shape, oversized head, and ridiculous features, Welsh Corgis make the best costume dogs. And as members of the herding dog group, they're a perfect fit as scouter users.
I almost couldn't b...
Otakon 2014 flew by last weekend, in usual form, cramming way more content than what one can expect within a simple weekend. The cosplayers are out and baffling the crowd. The local baseball program even talked about it, and what kind of pictures the broadcasters can take if they were perusing the convention halls.
At the East Coast's biggest cons, major franchises struck somewhat of a balance. No one show dominated the other, probably because with Sailor Moon making a comeback, there is a bandwagon for everyone. Check out the gallery below!
It's really amazing how Anime Expo continues to be one of the most diverse cons when it comes to cosplaying things from anime and manga. For those of us canvassing the whole thing, note that while the count of Homestucks have dropped, they are still a force to reckon with. What is more of a surprise is the percentage of Kill la Kill cosplayers versus Attack on Titan cosplayers--it's about even. This is distinctly not so much the case at every other con I attended this year where survey corps jackets reigned, so it's something that stuck out to me.
Maybe it's the July SoCal sun that makes the Nudist Beach "outfits" all that more sensible? Put on some sunscreen guys! Maybe that's also what makes our guests of honors at AX, Ami Koshimizu and Ryouka Yuzuki, cosplay their Kill la Kill characters as well. Unfortunately technical difficulty prevented me for featuring those two, but instead you can check out anison duo Angela in their team Blue get-up from the K: Missing Kings premiere.
Summertime is now upon us which means out with that bulky cosplay and into something a little more fun. By fun, I mean swimwear.
Beat Down Boogie just released, what I'm calling, the beach episode of cosplay music videos. Recorded at Colossal Con in Sandusky, Ohio at Kalahari Waterpark resort.
You can now see why I'm calling it what I'm calling it.
Anime Next 2014 in Somerset, New Jersey, spotted some terrific weather. It was almost nicer outdoors than indoors because the air conditioning was having problems on Saturday at the Doubletree Hotel, where many of the panels were hosted. The cosplayers are all outside anyway, large patches of landscaped lawn make shooting a little easier under the sun, as long as you can navigate the shadows from the trees.
With the World Cosplay Summit qualifier, Anime Next is moving up in some ways, and the cosplay reflect that. There are quite a few good ones, plus as a very good indicator of what's going to be out there at the big summer cons this year. Yeah I'm looking at you, Levi and Ryuuko. The gallery is just over there, you know what to do.
Anime North 2014 is one huge con this year, and the convention's parking lot proved to be a nice gathering place for all kinds of cosplayers. The sun beat down hard during Saturday's prime hours, but many persevered nonethele...
Over the weekend, midwest's cosplayers marched out en force at Anime Central 2014. Let's take a look after the jump.
The trend with Titan doesn't seem to slow down, and there are a bunch of decent survey corps members roaming the con. But in large numbers it all seems to blur, unlike the more striking titan cosplayers. Still, the usual seems to make a mark, such Homestuck and the like. It just seems Kill la Kill is quick to overtake Free one's best excuse to wear as little clothes as possible at a con, despite ACEN '14 was still quite chilly overall, weather-wise.
Anime Boston 2014 brings out the cosplayers from the US Northeast. If you look at what parades through the bigger cons' halls in the year, the earlier cons give you an indication of what's to come later in the year. Take a lo...
