Otakon! part 1 July 19, 2009

That’s right, we were at Otakon in Baltimore! I wanted to blog while I was in Baltimore, but I had a very crazy schedule everyday, so I decided to do two blog posts today, a cosplay post and a post of stuff I got at the con.

If you’re reading my blog, there’s a good chance that you’re an otaku. (a.k.a. anime nerd) And if you are, you probably know what Otakon is. It’s one of the biggest anime conventions in the U.S., and it’s definitely the biggest one in east coast. We weren’t there for fun but we were working at the con.

My company licenses and sells anime dvds, Japanese live action film dvds (with English subtitles), and also operates a Japanese online card game called Alteil, which we brought over here from Japan last year. When we go to a convention, I work at Alteil booth, and my boyfriend works on the dvd side.

We got to Baltimore on Thursday and set up the booth. On Friday, we worked from 12 to 8, and on Saturday it was from 10 to 6. Today (Sunday) was a short day, and it was from 10 to 3. Standing on my feet for 5 to 8 hours straight for 3 days in a row, teaching people how to play the game can be exhausting. Good thing I like what I do.

Anyway, here are some pictures of amazing cosplay from Otakon! (*The fuzz ball they’re holding is called Kesaran Pasaran and it’s a character from a card in Alteil.)
