My Anime Convention Schedule -Yuzuki [2015-2016]

Hello again! Sorry it has been awhile. School is wrapping up, so I have been quite busy.

This is just a small post, just to give you a basis on what my year holds, and maybe you can check them out too!

A-Kon- June 5-7th, 2015; Dallas, Texas A-Kon this will be my first time, so I don’t have any details on it. I have information from other friends. I guess we will see!

SanJapan- July 31-August 2nd; San Antonio, Texas (San-Japan) San Antonio’s LARGEST anime convention. Amazing and Organized convention. It is a bit pricey, but it IS worth it. I do recommend the competition for cosplay, but it is very hard for first-timers.

Anime Overload- August 14-16th; Austin, Texas (Animeoverload) What can I say about this convention, it is my all time favorite! It is truly amazing for a first timer, and an all timer. They have special guests, such as cosplay personalities from the hit reality tv show on Sci-Fi- Heroes of Cosplay. I HIGHLY recommend going!

Ikkicon- January 1-3rd; Austin, Texas (IkkiconIkkicon is quite a large convention to ring in the new year. Lots of stuff to do and explore. This will also be my first time attending!


There you have it! That is pretty much the basis of my year schedule. Hopefully I will see some of you there!

Have a wonderful rest of your day, week, whatever, and long live cosplay.

Tips for Finding Cosplay Photo Locations

I’ve been cosplaying for about ten years, so I’ve taken a lot of photos and had my photo taken a lot too. I’ve taken professional photos in my hometown and at conventions. I’ve taken random photos in con hallways, or photos that my friends came up with on the spur of the moment.

Outside the con setting, though, where do you go to get good photos of your cosplay?

Locations for Modern or Futuristic Costumes

My favorite location for a more modern cosplay photoshoot is any building with glassed windows. If they’re reflective, you can get some really cool “mirror” type shots as well. When I was cosplaying from the game S4 League, which has many urban settings, my friends and I found a building that matches this description.

Head downtown and take a walk. You’ll be surprised how many buildings have columns or steel railings for you to pose around. I’ve also seen a lot of cosplay videos and photos taken in empty levels of parking garages. The steel and concrete really fits with a modern cosplay look.

Locations for Darker or Horror Costumes

Parking garages are again, a great idea. It’s an enclosed space so you don’t have to worry about rain; it’s also a little darker and naturally grittier.

Find a wooded area in a local park or near a walking path. The shade can provide interesting light, and depending on the time of year, you can get really good spooky photos when leaves are falling and branches are bare. A lot of my Resident Evil cosplay photos were taken in a dark, shady corner of a park.

I don’t recommend cemeteries as photo locations, just because you don’t want to offend anyone who might be visiting a loved one’s grave there. I think you can get a similar look in a botanical or rose garden, especially if they have stone benches or plaques that could resemble headstones.
