AM^2 2012 Movie Roundup

I did all this on my new laptop. It can be done...now how far will I take it? Whatever the answer, here's what you get in the here and now:
The Opening Ceremonies
The Putumayo Fashion Show
The Andrea Libman Panel
The Masquerade
The Yukie Dong Concert
Can you dig it? Can you handle all this awesomeness? Cause it was. Awesome that is. Download it here from Nyaa Torrents. Or just look below and download the attachment...if we're still seeding that is.

Now I just need to get a copy of all this stuff to other people that I promised it to. You'd think I'd know better than to do this to myself. But that'd be smart, and we all know I'm just crazy.

AM^2 2012 Report and Pics Are Up

What? You thought I was just going to wait 'til right before AX? Or even some months after? You take me for that sort of procrastinator?

Yeah, I guess I am one of those actually. But not today, Galvatron! Oh no, for once, I have all my stuff done three days after con! That's right, it's all done! Well...I'll have the movies up in a bit, but they're all transcoded! Praise me! Praise me!

Yeah, okay, I didn't expect that to actually work either. Oh right, you wanted the pics, well here you go, you can find them here on TFA Cosplay. You're probably looking for the report this news item mentioned. Yeah, I can provide that too! I'll be getting the movies up later tonight, so stay tuned for more!

Fanime 2012 Article Now Up

Right before I hit AM^2 I have for your viewing pleasure the Fanime 2012 article. In it you will see what we suffered and fought for, or at the very least what we did and got drunk during, at Fanime 2012. Truly, this year was an exercise in the surreal, and I got to meet people I'll be going to Hell with. How often do you get to do that?

Fanime 2012 Article

This was one weird year for Fanime. Not so much the convention itself, but everything that wound up going on around it. Just…weird.

A lot of this has to do with the logistics of just getting to and staying at Fanime this year, which had to do with the fact that Mayhem just could not hang for more than a couple of days. This required that I head up and board with Gensao for the night before since we did not hit up day zero. It's probably for the best we didn't hit up day zero, but I'm getting ahead of myself a bit.

Mayhem's Fanime 2012 Pics Now Up

And hot on the heels of my massive amounts of movie and data processing, we have Mayhem's Fanime 2012 Pics now up. Though he was only there for a couple of days, he managed to snag some great pics pics including both backstage Masquerade and pics of the Black and White Ball at its brand new location! Some good stuff this time around, so check it out.

As always, if you're one of the cosplayers, and you want a larger and/or raw version of the pic, send either me or Mayhem a message and we'll make them available to you.

And for my next trick, I have convinced Youtube to give us the ability to stream greater than 10 hours of video, so what we now have on our Youtube page are movies for entire events including in this case the Fanime 2012 Masquerade (and hopefully this will keep the Platinum Dragon from screaming about file size overhead for awhile, heheheh).

Don't think I've forgotten you guys who like higher quality in your movies. Click on the attachment below this news item, and you'll get the torrent link for that higher quality; if we're still seeding that is.

The Masquerade was one of the better ones I've seen in recent years. A full on class act all around, and I have to admit, I was quite entertained, and I hope you will be too if you weren't fortunate enough to be there in person. For those of us who were, enjoy the memories and I hope you enjoy sharing it with your family and friends.

Fanime 2012 Pics Up at TFA Cosplay

Still getting used to my Nikon D7000, so the post processing on these pics is reminiscent of the post processing I had to do on my Nikon D40x. Also wound up having to drop a few since focus was a bit off, but in any event, here are the pics for Fanime 2012.

Even with the technical difficulties, I'm rather impressed with what my new camera can really do, though it will be awhile before I master it fully. A few of the pics at the end were taken with my Olympus EPL-1, so that's why they may look a little different. As always I hope you enjoy them, and if any cosplayer wishes for larger, unedited, and/or raw versions of their pics, message me, and I'll make them available. Finally, if you have one of my cards either side of that card has an email address I can be contacted at, so don't be afraid to use either.

So go ahead, and click on the above link, wherein you may share in some of the adventure my family and friends embarked on, perhaps you too shall be entertained as we were.

Anime Central 2012

So, how did you all like that Masquerade?

Too soon? Heh, don't worry. Everyone gets their ass kicked on their 15th birthday. Just ask Fanime.

Anime Conji 2012 Article Now Up

Well, after a little longer than I usually like, I have the Anime Conji 2012 Article now done. In it, you can see my trials and tribulations as I braved entertainment and fun on my quest for cosplay pic and video perfection. Truly a tale worth a ballad or two, assuming you're not busy planning a return trip next year, and I wouldn't blame you if you were. It really was a relaxing lot of fun, as you'll see in the report when you take a gander.

At the very least, I didn't get attacked by bats this time. No, the Batman doesn't count.
