Gensao, you will be the death of me. After a couple days of processing, we have Gensao's Fanime 2013 pics up for your viewing pleasure. Also included are his pics for Masquerade, which you can find in the Masquerade section.

Now, I must go and nurse my carpal tunnel with ice and beer.

Mayhem's Fanime 2013 Pics Up

And now we have Mayhem's Fanime 2013 up for your viewing pleasure. You can also find his backstage photos for the Masquerade here as well. Now to work on Gensao's and Pio's...may all the Gods help me.

It occurs to me that I never mentioned the ACEN pics that were now up over at TFA Cosplay...I shall rectify that now. They're up and waiting for your perusal, and what a fun time it was this year.

Also, I've gotten the first of the Fanime 2013 photos up which you can see by clicking that link back there. These particular ones are my set; I should have the rest, hopefully by this weekend. Gensao's is going to be...interesting...considering how he tends to take photos, heh.

If you see a photo of yours you want in unedited JPG and/or RAW, let me know and I'll make them available. Enjoy!

Well, only a little bit late this time around. At least I got it done before ACEN and Fanime. Still, for those that wish to know what went down concerning Anime Conji 2013, just head over to the report and check it out. Some say that it's not a convention unless you feel happy, in pain, with the life drained out of you. I personally prefer a succubus to do that for me, so I find welcome relief when I go to a convention where I just get the happy part.

Concerning ACEN, so long as their policy that they own all rights to every event, and nothing can be recorded or used without their say or how they specify (which is currently that one can only cut it into a highlight advertisment clip), then I will not work for them in any capacity. I'll attend because family and friends are in the area, and even despite that, it's a fun time. Concerning press or any further recording or work? They've put paid to that notion for the forseeable future...which is a damn shame. It used to be a cooperation, but now? They own it all, and your fun time exists only because they say it does and how they say it does.

And for our first bit of drama silliness, we have my take on a movement that is ripe for so much crap that we could open up a soil building plant and get rich off the proceeds. That being this cosplay =/= consent movement and everything that's coming with it. I honestly don't have very much good to say about it, but the reasons you'll see when you check out my thoughts on it.

Due to the nature of this particular article, I must again point out, this is my point of view, and honestly on a subject I would have preferred to keep to myself. The site itself, other contributors and/or managers, are not responsible for what I have written; it's all on me. So why not get up there and check out what all the hubbub is about? It may be coming to screw up your favorite convention sooner than you think.

I had a whole review planned out for our triumphant return. It was going to be equal parts glowing praise and blood soaked slaughter...well, maybe mostly blood soaked slaughter...can't believe they dropped the ball on Mao Yuusha's anime that badly. Then THIS came along...good lord, hasn't this shit burned itself out yet? Darkest before the dawn, remember that kiddies. Buckle up, we're going for a ride down this fucking rabbit hole of Cosplay =/= Consent.

Before I forget, head over to the Dragon's Anime Youtube Page. There are half a dozen new movies up from cons gone past that all may enjoy.

So, as I struggle to catch up with various bits of data here and there, I finally get to putting up Gensao's Sac Anime Summer 2012 pics, which consist of his normal pics, his pics from the Masqueradee, and his pics from the various concerts that went on during and after the Masquerade. Gensao, I want you to know it's because of you that I'm going to start segregating photos into various categories. Just sayin'.

Also, if you like dinosaurs, I wound up hitting up the Jurassic Con event for a few hours this weekend. It was a nifty little event filled with fossils, bones, movie props from Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Jason and the Argonauts, Land of the Lost, Super Mario Brothers, and various others. You can find the pics of it here as well. Taken with my Olympus, and I'm finally getting that little device to do what I tell it to do.

As always, if you're one of the cosplayers, and want larger and/or raw versions of the pics, drop me a line, and I'll make them available. Enjoy!

Sac Anime Summer 2012 Report

So this year, I once again found myself at Sac Anime Summer 2012 for the Labor Day weekend, August 31st to September 2nd of 2012, due to a combination of ‘what if’ style planning and air fares being near on nonexistent. It helped that I really didn’t have much planned that weekend, so off it was to Sacramento.

As before, we didn’t hit up the first day due to a lot of factors, that day was near on totally shot, but not a complete loss, having managed to have dinner with Gensao and meet an old friend from the Navy I’d not seen in well on seven years now. Even so, if I ever do this again, I’ll need to plan that out a little bit better. Like flying directly into Sacramento...that’d have solved a lot of problems.

So, as I slog through some old pics, I find that Gensao has bequeathed me, not only his Sac Anime Summer 2012 pics, but also his Fanime 2011 pics; including that mega-dose of pics from the main stage of the Masquerade which are no included in their own folder with Mayhem's Masquerade Backstage.

I'll be getting to the Sac Anime Pics in short order, and hope I'll get a minireport done sometime soon as well. If you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger, unedited, and/or raw version of your pic(s), send me a message and I'll make theme available. Well, in Gensao's case, all I have are the JPG's given his enormous picture taking proclivity, but if you really want the raws, I'll see about contacting him concerning them. Have fun!

Sac Anime Summer 2012 Movie Roundup

Found myself back at Sac Anime somehow again this year. Figured AX would be my last convention this year, but it looks like I managed to squeeze in one more. So, are you the best, around? Will nothing ever get you down? If it will, why not check out the movie roundup for Sac Anime Summer 2012 as hosted by Nyaa Torrents (or just click on that attachment down below)? Those should perk you right up. It includes both the Masquerade and the Eyeshine Concert, in eye popping 720 HD. You'll noticed due to that, the files are FAR larger. This will be a bit of an experiment to see how this works, but so far I'm liking it, and I think we can support it.

I've been slacking a bit this time around I know, but expect a short report soon. And have fun! I mean that!
