The end of summer means the biggest Japanese Anime & Culture Convention on the East Coast, Otakon! And of course, I was on hand for Otakon 2012. I didn’t take as many pictures this year as I usually do, due partially to the fact that it averaged about 100 degrees in Baltimore all weekend long! But I thought I’d share a few photos.
There were all sorts of costumes, as usual… from anime…
To Monty Python….
And Mystery Science Theatre 3000!
There were animals…
And even Rugrats!
But of course the best part is hanging out with friends you haven’t seen for a while. In my case, my friend here, who goes by the name of “Flea.” (And me of course.)
And also my friend Brian, on the left, jamming with a similarly-attired random con-attendee.
And also, these cool people.
You can see the rest of my Otakon 2012 photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nessachan/sets/72157630831159152/
I always love your reporting from Otakon!
I especially love the pretty girl. As well as the boys in the red jackets and wide ties.
What was your costume?
Thanks Allee!! The guys in the ties are dressed as thief extraordinaire Lupin the 3rd, and I am just rocking some Japanese street fashion, though I took numerous costumes with me.. it was really hot outside o_O.
