Overview of the whole con:
HOW IN THE FUCK DID THEY GET ALL THOSE COSPLAYERS UNDER ONE ROOF???
Seriously it was awesome to see so may talented cosplayers. No genre was skipped either as you had the whole gambit. Comics, old school and current anime, american cartoons, steampunk, goth and movies. It was cool for me to see so many of my favorite characters cosplayed. There were still people here all day and even after the con was closed down. Here is a shot from earlier today of the Gazebo and Atrium area still with stunning cosplayers.
So lets get to my haul of stuff (summary) as I did go a little over budget as I expected.
24 Artist Sketches (including Phil Foglio, Senno Knife and Steve Bennett)
8 DVD/Bluray covers signed
2 SD Gundam Model Kits
and various other nick-nacs
My suggestions however for Katsucon for next year is as follows:
- Extend the hours for the Merchant Alley. Closing down hours before Artist Alley is a bit odd.
- Provide the Program Schedule sooner than later. Any update of changes should be posted on the site and highlighted on the Guide somehow. I missed seeing the majority of Lolita Dark's concert.
- Work with the Gaylord Resort to make sure that Electronic Schedule Boards are actually accurate. The times on Friday showed registration at 6pm when we all know it was 7pm.
I am now in my room relaxing and reviewing the photos I took. I am also going to pre-pack the car so it will be easy to check out tomorrow. I think this picture sums it up for all the cosplayers at the end of the Con - "Finally a Break!"
