Irving, Tx here! Akon was my first Con this year and it was awesome. It was also my first cosplay and wont be my last. I also have plans to work on a steampunk costume for next years Akon and a couple others.
I would love to catch animefest but it's getting close to Halloween and the holidays, so completeing my steampunk custome for Halloween and the steampunk new years ball is a must.
Anyone in the DFW area wanna share there costume knowledge or just share any fun storys. I'm new to cosplay and willing to except any pointers.
Oh if anyone in the area enjoys anime and wanna meet fellow anime geeks, come join us http://www.meetup.com/MidCitiesAnimeclub/
The meet up group is new and has only had one meet up so far and the next is coming up in two weeks. Free food, door prizes, play video games, come meet new people with the same interest while watch anime. The first meeting we had a special guess attend, a voice actor from Funamation. She is the voice of Winry Rockbell from "full metal alchemist" and fma brotherhood as well as sing intro songs and produce some series. She does many other voice acting for anime but I can't remember what else, oh yeah gunslinger girl was another and many more.
If anyone join the group or would like to attend the August 26 meeting, hit me up. Or if you just wanna talk ot hang I'm fine with that too.
