AnimeNEXT 2018 Saturday Cosplay Gallery

Posted  June 18, 2018  by  Adam Etheridge

I spent the majority of the day on Saturday at AnimeNEXT 2018 bouncing between some of the fan organized photo shoots at the event. I kicked off the day bright and early with another Persona photo shoot held by Steve Vo. My next stop was the Overwatch photo shoot, dubbed “OverwatchNEXT” by the photo shoot’s organizer. […]

AnimeNEXT 2018 Cosplay Gallery, Friday Part 2

Posted  June 16, 2018  by  Adam Etheridge

This year (for the first time ever, I believe), AnimeNEXT requested that fans holding a group meetup/photo shoot register them on their official website. Those running these meetups could request a time/day and choose from a number a pre-selected locations to hold their event at. This was something that I had hoped would get done […]

Incredibles 2 Could Be The Most Incredible Sequel Ever

Posted  June 13, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

The last time we saw the Parr family — Bob (Mr. Incredible), Helen (Elastigirl), Dash, and Violet — it was 2004. A new threat, The Underminer, had quite literally just emerged to threaten Metroville. Did they defeat the evil mole-man? Was Violet’s first date with Tony a success? What’s up with Jak-Jak? It took 14 […]

Two episodes in, Freeform’s first show in the Marvel universe is breaking new ground for both the young adult channel and the MCU TV world.

PAX East 2018 Thursday Pics by Wonderllama Photo

Posted  April 12, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

Another PAX East has come and gone. PAX East 2018 was chock full of impressive cosplay and eye-popping game releases. With the exception of Sunday, the crowd seemed smaller than in previous years, which was likely the intention of expanding the expo to four days from the previous three. That new day, Thursday, was a […]

Saturday Gallery by Zephyrlynk Productions from Anime Boston 2018

Posted  April 11, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Saturday at Anime Boston 2018 saw Jake of Zephyrlynk Productions wandering all over not only the Hynes Convention Center, but out into the mall at Prudential Place as well. This allowed him to grab all sorts of interesting poses and angles in his photos of cosplayers, something I was less able to do while at our table promoting our own […]

Anime Boston 2018 Pics by FirstPerson Shooter, Sunday Part 1

Posted  April 7, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Sunday at Anime Boston 2018 was quite a bit quieter than the previous two days. Not surprising since it fell on Easter once again (and April Fool’s Day, so I guess thank you for those people who brought me chocolate and not grapes re-wrapped). I still managed to get enough photos for three cosplay galleries from our […]

Posted  April 6, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

After 11 hours at our table on Saturday at Anime Boston 2018 I was ready to pack things up, and the cosplayers had cleared out into dinner, panel rooms or the ongoing Masquerade. It still took me nearly 20 minutes to pack up, because cool cosplay kept walking by the table. Among the cosplayers in this last […]

Anime Boston 2018 Pics by FirstPerson Shooter, Saturday Part 2

Posted  April 4, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

This year Anime Boston and the Hynes Convention Center seemed to have worked out all the kinks of the previous couple of years regarding security and bag checks. The line was almost non-existent when I got in at 8:30 a.m., but I kept hearing how there was almost no wait even mid-day. One big help was that […]

Saturday at Anime Boston 2018 saw bigger crowds and better air conditioning, making for a busy and fun day. I took enough photos to make five galleries, each larger than the ones from Friday. I also handed out a pile of flyers for our upcoming Cosplay And Photography Expo, July 28 & 29 in Nashua, NH. Among the […]

Posted  April 3, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

As afternoon turned to evening Friday at Anime Boston 2018 the crowd sizes only shrank a bit, despite people leaving the steamy Hynes Convention Center to get dinner. About those crowd sizes — I never got into the Artist Alley or wandered the upstairs halls, but in the main hallway where Con Row tables were set up as always, […]

Anime Boston 2018 Pics by FirstPerson Shooter, Friday Part 3

Posted  April 3, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

By early afternoon on Friday at Anime Boston 2018 it was clear that the Hynes Convention Center hadn’t planned for a 60-degree day with a center full of people in costumes. To say that that center was muggy would be an understatement. Even with the lack of proper air conditioning, attendees still made the best of it and […]

Posted  April 2, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Friday at Anime Boston 2018 started out with a bit of a delay, until those of us waiting to get escorted to the hallway outside the dealers room to set up our promotion tables took matters into our own hands and grabbed an escort. After that things went smoothly, and I even managed to snag the first […]
