Anime Matsuri 2012

 | April 9, 2012 8:33 pm

We are back from Anime Matsuri and we had a great time. Bill talked us into going out to Houston for this one and we are glad we did it. It was really unfortunate that it was the same weekend as MTAC in Tennessee, but it was good to mix things up a bit and try a new con.

Matsuri takes place in Houston, TX at the Woodlands Waterway Marriott. It is a nice facility with an attached hotel and convention center. Space seems to be at a premium though with some of their smaller events overwhelming their rooms and having to roll into the beautiful outdoor space behind the center next to the waterway. I don’t now how much longer they will be able to keep it at that location, but it is a great space.

One of the best moments for us was the FLOW concert Saturday night. It was a great crowd listening to a great band. Toss in some well known anime series themes they have done and you have the making of a great time.

Here are a few shots from around the con. There are more in the Photo gallery here.

The Phantom Menace in 3D

 | 9:43 pm

Brandi and I had a wonderful Valentines together doing something that was personal to us by watching the 3D release of The Phantom Menace. We met 12 years ago doing an appearance with the 501st and Rebel Legion. Star Wars brought us together. We would have never met if it were not for those films.

Prior to Valentines, I had the opportunity to shoot photography for a LFL Official Event at the AMC in Morrow, GA for the release along with the 501st and Rebel Legion. It was a great time and really helped set the week for me.

Interesting note aboutbthe little girl on the last row, her name is Amidala. Her brother’s name is Anakin. Their dad was so proud. It was awesome talking to him.

A Work In Progress

 | February 12, 2012 2:06 pm

Brandi fast a work on her next project. We’ll give you one guess what it is.

Construction using Paperclay and Bondo spot filler. When these are all sanded up, they will be cast and pulled in resin. We might even offer some if there is interest.
