Seishuncon 2012 Cosplay Gallery and Report!


Seishuncon 3 was held on June 22nd – 24th, 2012 at The Atlanta Double Tree Northwest in Atlanta, Georgia. They take pride in being Georgia’s first and biggest summer anime convention. Slowly growing to be known as the pool con or party con, Seishuncon has always offered a variety of activities for their attendees. Whether it be the growing cosplay contest, the fan panels, the cosplay photo shoots, or even the pool fun in cosplays, Seishuncon has something to offer. I always catch myself at Karaoke that goes on Friday night. It is separated by time slots for what type of songs you would like to sing. Whether you get there early and catch those singing Anime Openings, or catch the end of the 18+ part where everything sings “I’m on a boat!”

I have been there every year since the first and seen the amount of growth this con has achieved and have great expectations that  it will only to continue upwards from here. From feeling sorta empty last year, the same amount of space seemed almost too small. The con itself is held at a nice hotel that gives you cookies for staying there, who doesn’t like chocolate cookies? They also offer an indoor pool with hot tub as well as a larger outdoor pool. Everyone takes some time during the con to jump in and get wet. The staff attends and promotes the con at other events in and around Georgia. So if you live in Georgia, or the southeast, and looking for a extra con under your belt, check out Seishuncon. I hope to see you there. (If you love the pictures, check out more of Bentpic5‘s work here!)
