Posted January 23, 2017 by Rodney Brown

In case I haven’t mentioned it enough over the past five galleries, we had […]

Arisia 2016 Cosplay Gallery, Sunday & Monday

Posted January 22, 2016 by Rodney Brown

Sunday at Arisia 2016 was loaded with cosplayers, but most of them were involved in some fashion in practicing for, rehearsing for or participating in the Masquerade, and event that traditionally brings out some amazing creativity. Unfortunately, that meant that we got fewer shots than Saturday, being trapped at our table promoting the second annual […]

Arisia 2015 Sunday Cosplay Gallery!

Posted January 21, 2015 by Rodney Brown

The third day of the four-day science fiction and fantasy convention Arisia featured fewer cosplayers than Saturday — at least wandering the lobby of the Westin Waterfront. In fact, there may have been more overall than Saturday, but many of them were involved in prepping for the Masquerade. Alas, I didn’t go to the Masquerade […]

What Other Conventions Can Learn From Arisia 2013

Posted January 29, 2013 by Kelley Griffin

I’ve been going to cons for a few years now and I’m happy to say that Arisia is my new favorite con. Why? Let me count the ways. Arisia caters to an older generation of fans. That’s not to say that there weren’t young people there, but it seemed that this con in particular was […]

Arisia 2012: Review of one of New England’s Best Sci-Fi Conventions

Posted January 19, 2012 by Jen Jen

In the short time I’ve been attending conventions (not even a year actually) it’s become clearer the type of crowd these events draw in with versatile themes and fairly similarly grouped vendors. This past Saturday, the crowd was slightly more introverted, but the amenities were abundant at Arisia held in Boston, MA at the Westin […]
