Extra Jam 1 – Next Gen Nonsense (Episode 50.5)


So you want a shiny new console? Well listen to four guys ramble for a few hours about the PS4 and Xbox One, along with their launch line up, and other things. We try to stay on topic, but we figure that you’ve already made your decision on which console to get, and that there are more informed sources you have for your console choice. Join Dennis along with Adam, Garrett, and special guest J on this Extra Jam episode. Read more


Episode 35 – Extra Jam I: Game On

It’s our first ever Extra Jam episode, where we discuss things that aren’t really about cosplay at all, though there is some cosplay talk that sneaks in every now and then. It’s only the guys today, as Keith, Dennis, Francis, and Aaron discuss their fondness for playing video games (even while recording this podcast). So grab your controller, or whatever your preferred gaming interface is, because here comes a new challenger! Episode 35 is a go!

Episode 32 – Western Genshiken: Cosplay Edition

There’s been quite the debate going around amongst fellow con-goers recently about one topic: why is there so much Western pop-culture representation at anime conventions? At Anime Expo 2012, the Homestuck gathering counted over 1,000 gatherers. Panels about Dr. Who and My Little Pony can be attended at most conventions. Finn’s hat can be spotted more than Chopper’s hat. The cosplay community should be embracing of anyone trying to partake of this hobby, at any age, ethnicity, skill level, and fandom (as long as it’s age appropriate). Yet, now that Batman and Spider-Man are regulars at conventions with Goku and Sailor Moon, some cosplayers are in an uproar. Joining us today are Garrett from Real Otaku Gamer and Diana, aka Binkx, as we talk about the pros and cons of Western pop-culture inspired cosplay along with its future. Read more


Episode 18 – E3 + AM^2 = MathJam

Cosplay Jam Album Cover

Happy Con season, folks! We’ve got a double convention recap for you. First up, Kate and Aaron visit E3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and talk about videogames and free stuff for you gamers out there. While we are not a videogame focused podcast, we do enjoy playing videogames quite a bit. Not a lot of cosplay there being an industry event, but still very enjoyable. Also, we visit AM^2 at the Anaheim Convention Center. While the con itself is small, their hearts are in the right place. Hear about what we liked and what we didn’t like, along with what our hope is for the future of AM^2. We also have a surprisingly lengthy AM^2 Masquerade talk even though they only had 13 entries. And Dennis was still ill-prepared due to both his camera batteries dying. Boo-urns. We got new hardware to make this podcast better: both a new camera and a new computer. Let us know how you like the new format for Cosplay Jam. Have a listen and follow the links below to watch E3 and AM^2 vids. Episode 18 is a go!

Episode 10 – Start the Year with ALA

Welcome to our Anime Los Angeles recap episode. It’s out first
convention of the year, yet some consider it the last episode
of their convention season. Come listen to our stories about
the con including our first ever hosted panel (with thanks to
cosplayer Binkx and Jammer from the Animanga Podcast), making
fun of Aaron’s photography skills and Dennis’ skin tone,
general convention thoughts, and of course, the return of the
food talk. And if you missed them, our cosplay pictures are
back on the podcast again. Also, apologies for all the talk
about Francis’ cleavage. We’re sure those Inception sounds
aren’t just in your dreams. And watch out for that spider!

And adding to that, we have our first ever normal segment, Cosplay Advice. This episode goes over an intro to using what you have, or what you can easily purchase at a thrift store or general department store at a low cost…at least til the end.
