All-Con 2017 Aftermath!

All-Con has been completed for 2017!  (At least, as far as we are concerned, as we were unable to attend the entire length of the convention.)  The cosplay contest went wonderfully well, and thank you to everyone who entered.
    
We would like to congratulate the winners of each of our categories--

Beginner: Venture Brothers [group]
Intermediate: Hamilton [group]
Advanced: Belle (new Beauty and the Beast)
Best in Show: Inquisitor Lavellan (DragonAge: Inquisition)
Ashley Ren judge award: Starlord/Peter Quill
Azure Props judge award: Ittoki Otoyo (Uta no Prince-Sama)
DestinyAiden judge award: Mara Jade
Audience favorite: Emperor Fry

We'd like to thank: Nick, Trent, Alley, our judges (below), Jeff, Todd, and the staff and audience of All-Con.  Thank you so much for having us!  We'd also like to thank Five Wits and Aradani for sponsoring prizes in the contest.  Please consider their products for your cosplay needs (Val and I both use their products willingly ourselves, and no, we're not compensated for saying that).  We appreciate you all!

Article of the Week  

In an effort to help keep our website a bit more up-to-date, and in the spirit of sharing news regarding conventions and cosplay, we present to our listeners our  'Article of the Week' for Apr 16 - Apr 22.  
This week's article is from RocketNews24, a Japanese/Asian-specific news site.  Tokyo has had an indoor anime theme park (no joke!) for some time; however, now you can rent costumes from a selection of anime and experience the park as a cosplayer:

Tokyo Indoor Anime Theme Park Launches New Cosplay Rental Service

Not only do they provide the costume, but they also provide a wike and makeup products to complete the look.  For an extra fee, you can get character-specific props and a commemorative photo (with framed print!) to take home.  Sounds pretty neat, huh?

Booking Information!

We at CosPod are happy to serve as cosplay guests at your favorite convention!  We have gathered together some basic information about our services and put it online for reference.  We're also available for media interviews upon request.
We provide a few advantages as a cosplay guest:

1) We're both experienced panelists with a wide range of topics between us.  Our YouTube channel has full footage of our past cosplay panels including academia, armoring, propmaking, sewing, competition, and electronics.

2) We can provide free press services (videography, photography, interviews, online social media promotion) for you.

3) We're both award-winning cosplayers who have competed in, judged, and managed cosplay contests at major conventions.  Between both of us, we have experience in several cosplay disciplines.

4) We're very self sufficient; we provide all of our own equipment (with the exception of projectors) and don't ask for much from the convention.

If you are interested in having us as a guest (or would like to request us for an interview), please email podcast@cospod.org with the subject line "Convention Guest Inquiry".  Thanks so much!
