A-Kon has come and gone for another year. We actually beat
last year's DragonCon photo album record with over 2,000 photos from
the Kon! There were a lot of changes for the Kon's 26th
year, and the improvement was obvious.
Val's review of the convention can be heard in episode
91, along with special guests Velvet Rose Cosplay and
Brief note from Amber: I was
not present for the review episode because, unfortunately, I was only
able to attend the Kon for Day 1. Saturday I was unexpectedly
called back in to the office for work, and due to lack of parking at
the hotel, I couldn't return for Sunday. My apologies to our
audience for being unable to bring you more coverage.
Fellow Cosplay Publications
To go along with our previous
feature on cosplay podcasts, we thought it would be helpful to share
some of our fellow cosplay publications as well. Cosplay has
definitely become a larger hobby than when we first started out! Cosplay Culture Magazine
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 inquiry. We provide a few advantages as
a cosplay guest:
both experienced panelists with a wide range of topics between us.
Our YouTube channel
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 promotion via social media) for you.
We're both award-winning cosplayers who have competed in, judged, and
now managed/run cosplay contests at major conventions.
both of us, we have experience in several cosplay disciplines.
We're very self sufficient; we provide all of our own press gear and
panel 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
the subject line "Convention Guest Inquiry". Thanks so much!
