Zenkaikon 2016 Cosplay on Instagram

I had the honor of speaking at Zenkaikon 2016 about blogging. Why was it a honor? Zenkaikon is incredibly organized. It has panels on just about everything you can think of, for all fandoms. And, Zenkaikon’s attendees were some of the nicest, most creative fans I’ve ever met.

At most conventions I attend, about half of the people are dressed in full-out costume. At Zenkaikon, almost everyone was in costume. If you weren’t wearing a complete costume, you were definitely in the minority. I saw plenty of anime folks I didn’t recognize. (Sorry, I know nothing about anime.) But I saw several characters I recognized, like Tinker Bell, Sonic the Hedgehog, Bob from Bob’s Burgers, Crystal Gems from Steven Universe, and so many more.
