Fanime 2013 Impressions

Hi folks. Dennis here with some early initial impressions regarding Fanime this past weekend. It was five days (if you count Day Zero) of fun and exhaustion. Yeah, those two words perfectly describe our experiences at Fanime. However, it wasn’t as smooth sailing as we’d like it to be.

In terms of attendees, the ones you see and meet at Fanime are some of the best you can meet at a California convention. Friendly, outgoing, excited, diverse, and passionate–you’ll find many people you can get along with or strike a conversation with very easily. And attendance has shot through the roof! When I first began attending this convention, their totals were around the 10,000 attendee mark. And this year, they’re at an estimated 20,000 plus! Read more

Durarara!! Photoshoot in Downtown LA

Hey guys, this is Aaron. I just recently finished editing photos from a shoot I took a few weeks ago with some incredible cosplayers. Some of them I have had the pleasure of working with before and some that I would be working with for the first time. This was a Durarara!! photoshoot that was organized by It’s Itsuka who is a great Southern California cosplayer. The setting for the shoot was an urban city just like the one in Durara!! Lucky enough, most of us lived near Los Angeles so we were able to use Downtown LA as the background. As usual, it was fun taking all these pictures of these wonderful cosplayers. Here are a few of my favorites:
