Over the past few weeks, there has been a great deal of sturm und drang on the Internet about the news of the arrest of a guest DJ at the Seattle-based convention Aki-con on charges he sexually assaulted an attendee minor. The tempest is more over whether or not Aki-con responded properly with its official […]
The last day of any con is the quietest, and that was no different at Super MegaFest, a multi-entertainment con held in Framingham, Mass.

San Diego Comic Con is the biggest convention in the US, and I always look forward to seeing what amazing cosplays and cosplayers will be showcased there, either in photos or in video form.

After ten years in the cosplay scene, I have a lot of confessions to make. These days, ten years of cosplay makes you old school. At my first Katsucon in 2003, I didn’t know what a Masquerade was in the convention context. The idea of cosplay as competition didn’t exist to me. Cosplay was when […]
