Anime Weekend & DragonCon & Celebration

 | September 23, 2010 8:09 pm

We are really behind on updates.  We’ve hit 3 major cons in 7 weeks with Celebration V, then DragonCon, then AnimeWeekendAtlanta.  I’m going to be updating the gallery soon with pics from each.  After some more sleep.  LOL.

Seishun Con

 | June 27, 2010 11:55 pm

We are back from Seishun Con.  I only took a few pics here and there, tons of Brandi as always, and have posted a some in the gallery at http://www.angrydogarmor.com/wp-gallery2.php?g2_itemId=7608.

Small, but well executed con.  Sure, there were some minor hiccups, but nothing major and stuff that I would expect of any first year con.  We had a good time and fully plan to go back again next year if they bring it back.

I’ll post more later, but I’m going to bed now.

Star Wars @ Screen on the Green

I shot photos for the 501st on Thursday at the Atlanta Screen on the Green showing of Star Wars: A New Hope.  It was a great time.  Pictures are over at http://www.ga501st.com/?page_id=68&g2_itemId=25761 if anyone is interested.

MTAC: The Con that Never Ends or Swim Con

 | May 7, 2010 9:28 pm

ADA attended our very first Middle Tennessee Anime Con the weekend of May 1st.  Unfortunately, Nashville also experienced a 100 year flood that same weekend.

We were extremely fortunate that our inconvenience was nothing more than having to stay over one more day and deal with no water in the hotel Monday morning.  Many of our friends and associates were not so lucky.  Several experiences unimaginable losses to personal items, props, vehicles and homes for those locally affected.  Our hearts go out to them all.  Nashville has been much harder than most people think based on the lack of media coverage given by major news outlets.

MTAC itself:  MTAC was AWESOME.  While it certainly has a few issues (IE really small dealers room considering the size of the con) it was a blast.  We’ve never been to an Anime Con that seemed so focused on the over 18 fans.  Many Anime Cons dumb everything down for the under 18 crowd, but MTAC was a no holds barred if you’re over 18 lets have some fun kind of con.  Risqué Cosplay Contest anyone?  Not to mention a wildly enjoyable and massive Rave that was not afraid to call itself exactly what it was, a Rave.

As of right now, we are definitely considering going again next year.  MTAC 2011 will be on Easter, so that may play into our thinking a bit, but it was just so much fun with the outdoor all day Friday rave, speedy costume contest, rave, panels, etc.  Not to mention the fantastic OVER THE TOP excellence shown by the volunteers who stayed over through Monday to entertain and provide activities for those literally stranded at the hotel by the flood.

I wanted to throw out a special thanks to Derek DeWeese for his help in getting me amazing access to the con for my photo bug side.  Thanks!

Pictures, soon.  Video of a few minutes from the Rave, now! (Yes, everyone is over 18, heh.)

Connooga: The next big thing?

My Connooga 2010 review…Awesome.  Pure and simple, that is all there is to say about it.  And that is with me getting a really really bad case of food poisoning and missing practically all of Saturday night because of it.  Connooga has reached back and remembered what it was about small cons of old that made them so much fun.  Parties!  Lots of official approved parties.  Pictures are in the Gallery.  Can’t wait for next year.

MTAC is next.

New pictures in the Gallery!!

I just posted pictures from Anime Weekend Atlanta 2009 and Chattacon 2010.  I had completely forgotten about posting the Anime Weekend Pics.  There are a ton of shots form the costume contest in there.

Back from DragonCon 2009

 | September 8, 2009 11:05 pm

We are back from DragonCon.  It was a great year.  For me personally (Jimmy) it felt like one of the most fulfilling years I’ve had in sometime.  We have so many great friends in different groups, but there are just too many of them to hang out with.  This year we somehow did it and I feel like I got to spend quality time with most of them.  Though we both wished we had more time to hang out with the Cobra crew.  We miss them.

The con is still getting use to the move from the Hyatt to the Marriott as the place to be.  We almost never go to the Hyatt anymore, though it still feels like home when at DragonCon.  Most people have made the Marriott the place to hangout at now.

I’ve posted  a lot of pics in the gallery in two different sections.  One is candid pics taken while walking around the con and the other is a series of portrait shots I took of various people that came by the room.  Just click on the View Gallery link on the right under the Gallery preview picture and then go into the Events section.

Updates

Wow, slow it down, slow it down!  This year is going by way to fast.  Anime Expo was a blast and pics are posted in the Gallery.  Dragon Con is now like two weeks away and we are racing to get ready.  Its the year of fun costumes.  I won’t say lite ones, well mine are, but Brandi has several new fun costumes for the con.

I’m going to be spending more time taking pictures I think.  Just rented a nice lense for the con to give me some more options.

Anime Expo

Just a week and a half until we leave for Anime Expo.  Should be fun as always.  Its been a few years since we went, so we are really looking forward to it.
