Bonjour tous!

I'm not French but I do live in Paris now. Now on to the topic, I would like to know what are the upcoming Cons / Expositions related to anime, manga and cosplaying this upcoming 2009. I am pretty interested in taking photos of cosplayers and would like to expand my knowledge on Cosplay photography.

Here's a photostream of te photos I've taken since they day I got my camera last November.

Merci beaucoup!

I also read something about Japan Sun, but I think that's a bit far for you.....
It's kinda far far away...... but if you are intrested in spending lotsa money on trains:
You also got the Toulouse Game Show but that's in Toulouse >.<!
And the only other I will be going and I can think of is japan-expo in Paris...the usual....

There are ALL the cons in France....I think at least a big big part.

EccentricShinob: I know there will be Paris Manga in Paris, Porte de Champerret, as for the date I'm not really really sure... apparently, the official dates haven't been set up for now. I won't be attending that convention, sorry.

Otherwise, for those of you who are outside Paris, you have the Toulouse Game Show, November 28th and 29th 2009.
