(Taken at TaiyouCon 2013 )
I think this is a record weekend so far for 2013. TWENTY FIVE CONS here in the United States. It’s a mish-mash of anime, comic book, gaming, steampunk and sci-fi cons.
The big ones this weekend is probably Katsucon in Maryland, a highly anticipated anime con well-known for the beautiful hotel plus high levels of costuming. For those in Los Angeles, check out Creations Grand Slam where you can meet the cast of Star Trek : Next Generation as well as casts from Voyager, Deep Space Nine, Enterprise as well as other TV shows like Fringe, Teen Wolf and more. I have to work that weekend but if I get off early enough, I’m heading to Creations in Burbank.
Oh, there’s Gallifrey One in Los Angeles this weekend too – one of the largest Dr. Who cons in the country.
As usual, the dates are for the weekend of Feb 15-17 unless otherwise noted – yes, some cons are going 4 days long for the President Day weekend. If I missed any, let me know ! firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh, and Harlem Shake will make an appearance at some of these cons this weekend.
