Are you a fan of anime? Do you like dressing in cosplay? How about getting lost inside a stunning world of animation, culture, and adventure? Of course you do! Fear not fellow Otakus- the 2013 Otakon Anime Convention is on its way. Otakon , simply put, is a must on the to-do-list of any anime or manga lover. Even if you are an anime noob, Otakun has a lot to offer. The people-watching is a feat in of itself. Just picture it- thousands of people hording in the streets of Baltimore dressed as T.V and video game characters. It is truly a sight to behold. Most convention goers have elaborate and creative costumes, everyone is friendly and willing to pose for pictures, and the "normals" walking the street who have no idea what an anime convention is-well, their facial expressions are priceless! :)
The convention will be held August 9th -11th at the Baltimore Convention Center. Hotels sell out fast, so get yours as soon as you can. Oh, and speaking of hotels, another great part of this convention is the hotel party block. If you book your hotel at an Otakon sponsored hotel, your room will be in the anime block, so you and your anime cronies can keep the party going all night long!
Otakon features concerts, contests, art expos, anime screenings, and a large bazaar.
The hardest part is choosing who to become. I have a hard enough time deciding what to have for dinner! So many good characters, so little time.
