Wow. I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since Otakon 2014 has passed. Maybe I should look at it as 2 weeks closer to the next one in 2015? 😉
This is my 5th year down in Baltimore for Otakon and I always enjoy it. Nothing better than getting down and nerdy with friends and just being SUROUNDED by people who enjoy the same things I do. Here are few of my favorite cosplays. FYI, I just about died when I saw that Nijigen Complex cosplay (the bumble bee outfit). If you haven’t seen the music video, stop what you’re doing and check it out here.
This year was overwhelmingly full of great music shows as well! I had one of the most AMAZING concert experiences ever. Have you ever heard of PeelanderZ? I don’t think I’ve ever been to a more interactive concert. The performers were in the crowd, the crowd was on the stage and everyone was singing and jumping around and CRACKING UP at the absurdity of the whole thing. If they’re in your town for a show all the way from Planet Peelander, check them out.
The guy with the purple rhino helmet was an audience member.
I was also introduced to the RiCECOOKERS! They’re a great bilingual rock band based in NYC. I really REALLY needed some new rock music in my life, and they so fit the bill. AND how convienient that they have a show in Brooklyn (my town) at the end of the month! 😉
