Episode 65 – Cospla Bonita

On this episode, Dennis and Kate ask Diana about her trip to Nan Desu Kan last month, and we try to keep the Casa Bonita talk to a minimum. No promises. After that, our friend Ed joins in to talk about the US premiere of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno from the LA Eigafest. And also, we go into the simulcast world premiere of the first two episodes of Fate/Stay Night [Unlimited Blade Works] by UFOTable, the direct sequel to Fate/Zero. Read more


Episode 63 – Southwest Two-Step

episode 63 title

Just because Dragon Con is so big doesn’t mean that there are other conventions not looking into. Aaron and Eve join Dennis and Kate to share their experiences with the first year Anime California and the just hitting their stride Saboten Con respectively. Though, one had a better time at the convention compared to the other. We talk about a con-goer’s struggle, fun skit ideas, and even toss in a little Eurobeat. Episode 63 is a go! Read more


Episode 58 – Always Room for Green Jello

On this episode of Cosplay Jam, we are proud to have World Cosplay Summit 2014 Team USA Green Jello Cosplay joining Dennis, Kate, and Eve. We’ll talk about Anime Central, competing in WCS over the years, tips for those interested in trying out, and of course, getting to know them. We’ve also got a little bit of food talk, the Sailor Moon license rescue, and hopes for what lies ahead in Japan. Episode 58 is a go! Read more


Episode 38 – Flowers and the World

It’s one of those extra long episodes as Kate and Dennis go over both World Cosplay Summit at Anime Matsuri and Sakura-Con with the help of Diana, Eve, and Chika. We’ve got stories and experiences with both conventions, including how to survive when restaurants are closed, camaraderie through friendly competition, working with American Cosplay Paradise and Funimation at a con, and much much more! And congratulations to Cupcake Cosplay, our US representatives for WCS 2013! Episode 38 is a go! Read more

There’s also a lot of random photos this episode, so if you have the AAC fee, hope you enjoy! Join hosts Dennis & Kate as they’re joined by Diana and Eve as we talk about road trips, flights, Anime Mexicali, and Anime Revolution. And with a hint of WCS Preliminary fun! Episode 30 is a go!
