All-Con Cosplay Contest!

All-Con is coming up in about six weeks!  We highly encourage participation from everyone (including children), and there are some pretty cool prizes to be won.  We hope this is a fun, new experience for cosplayers and audience alike!
    
There will be four major categories: Animation and Anime, Manga and Visual Novels, Video Game, and Mixed Media (basically, everything else).  This contest is not limited to anime or Japanese culture; all costumes, provided they meet the rules, are welcome.  If you have been considering competing in a cosplay contest for the first time, this would be a good contest to start with.  To the left are the trophies in their box!

The rules can be found here.  
All-Con's website can be found here.

Information about the judges can be found here:

PAX South 2015!  

PAX South is taking place right now!  Val is off in San Antonio, representing both CosPod as well as North Texas down at the convention center.  (Rumor has it there's a lot of Texas cosplayers down there.)  She'll have a full report when she returns.
This is PAX South's first year, and the Penny Arcade team chose the beautiful Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center to host their rather large debut.  Already we have seen pictures of some amazing cosplay!

Should you wish to watch/listen to the Twitch live stream of selected events at the convention, you can find it here.

If you would like to see good quality photos of cosplayers from the convention, check out Cosplay in America and David Ngo.

Beginning of 2015!

Happy New Year of the Sheep/Goat/Ram!  We're hoping that this will be an even better year than 2014.  May this year portend a fantastic climb to the top of everyone's cosplay game!  (Yes, Amber made a goat reference there.)
We already have some great plans for you, the Podders, for 2015.  There will be a few new interviews with some phenomenal names in cosplay, new tutorials (including soldering and electronics), and of course all of the panels and events that we're able to attend and video-capture.  We're also hosting All-Con's costume contest!

Barbeqon will be making a comeback this year and potentially a Hobbitdays in celebration of all 6 Tolkien films!  We also hope to promote more charity and volunteer work this year; we'd like to give back as much as the community has given us.
