Anime Banzai 2012 Aftermath

What a convention! I have been attending Anime Banzai for many years now and this has been my favorite this year so far. The panel heads were very easy to talk to and arrange the panels. They were very accommodating this year and great to work with. As for the panels themselves, they went off very well. The General Prop Making Panel took up the full two hours we had assigned. Stacie Pitt and I ran it for the most part, but Shannon Deonier was able to make it for a good chunk of the time. Shannon had some great information on fun plastics and craft foam armor. I really want to try some those materials out and see what I can make. I took a ton of notes from her and from Stacie as well. Stacie is really talented with sintra and Epoxies molds. I really want sintra now. The cosplay chess game on Friday was by far one of my favorite events, and has been for many years. The choices for the Kings and Queens were perfect for the theme as well. The theme for chess was Kawaii (Cute), with Sai

Convention Preparation

Whys is that cosplayers always tend to run late. Its something to do with procrastination and it is contagious. I am not exempt form of course. I have four fingers in band-aids and my right hand could get carpal tunnel if I am not careful, but these costumes will be done by tomorrow night. Why am I doing all of this? For Anime Banzai 2012: Utah's biggest anime convention and it is this weekend. It was my first anime convention so I am proud to feature it on this site for my first convention review. The review will come next week. For more information on Anime Banzai this is their site link below. Anime Banzai has been running since 2005 and has grown so much over the years. In 2011 they had over 3,000 attendees!! This anime convention has video games, card games, panels with your favorite anime characters, panels on costume making, and panels on Japanese culture. It is a great convention to go meet new faces and mingle with the other amazing geeks
