Hey! KandiRaver here, giving my nerd thoughts on the world of anime!
This week, I will be telling you about anime conventions.
What is an anime convention you ask?
"An anime convention is an event or gathering with a primary focus on anime, manga, and Japanese culture."
In an anime convention, one of the most popular things is cosplaying. You'll almost never find an anime convention where people aren't in cosplay.
There are many things to do at anime conventions too, such as panels, workshops, social events, and many others.
An anime convention coming up that I will be attending is Kawa Kon 2011, in St. Louis, Missouri.
Some of the main events I'm looking forward to is the Victorian ball friday night, the rave saturday night, and multiple panels and a masquerade!
Oh! Most conventions take place in a hotel too, and this year's is the Crowne Plaza hotel. It is suuuuuper nice. Plus I love hotel rooms =3
But yeah, basically that's all there is to anime conventions. It's a big social gathering for nerds XD
..see ya next week!
