@iamwhoiam... and well to any other new Michigan cosplayers and general anime, manga and gaming fans....

Well I know a lot of the local Michigan community (cosplay and otherwise) is hella more active on Facebook nowadays. And surprisingly our community ranges from members between 14-18 as well as has a pretty active 18+ community as well, with some of the oldest members of some of the groups being anywhere between 30-60....so you could say the MI community has a lot within the 14-60 age range (with the average falling between 15-30). And many of our 'older' community members do actually try and be positive mentors to the younger members...

Meanwhile the main big events of the year are Shuto-con, and Youmacon, then we have Midwest Media Expo (the newest event of the lot), Go! Daikocon and several smaller con (or con like) events like JAFAX, Alma-con, Con Ja Nai, Anime Park, SS Kaizoku Con and the somewhat on hiatus NMACon (due to location issues).

So definitely come check out the following groups:

Ooh, thank you for posting all of those, Raiji! I'm pretty new to the area as well, I moved here late last year, and so any info about the cosplay scene here is greatly appreciated!

If you don't mind me asking, how big is Anime Park/Is there a good amount of people there? I never heard about it until now, and am pretty interested in going, but it's an hour away and if it's really small I think I'd rather not.
