This past Saturday, I was able to attend Kami-Con. For those who might not know, Kami-Con is a 3-day convention that celebrates Japanese culture, geek culture, anime and manga, cosplay, tabletop and video gaming, and much more. It was their 9th year running, with it being the 5th year held at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex located in […]
There were a ton of people and a ton of cosplays from noon Thursday until 6 p.m. Sunday at Anime Weekend Atlanta, which returned to the Galleria Convention Center late last month. I wasn’t able to catch them all for photos but I sure caught a bunch, some in this AWA Cosplay Gallery 2 and […]
The end of Summer and start of Fall is crunch time for most Atlanta cosplayers, with two large cons falling within a month of each other. Late last month was Anime Weekend Atlanta, which returned to the Galleria Convention Center. This was a big year for the con, with a reported 28,781 unique attendees over the […]
Even though DragonCon takes place over Labor Day weekend and therefore Monday is also an official day of the convention, many people choose to use that as their day to travel home. Still this DragonCon 2016 cosplay gallery 7 of photos by Bentpic5 is full of awesome cosplayers. The Monday cosplay crowd still goes strong after what is likely […]
The second Sunday gallery of photos by Bentpic5 from DragonCon is also our DragonCon 2016 cosplay gallery 6.

That means that the Sunday cosplay crowd still goes strong after what seems […]
Here is the first Sunday gallery from DragonCon captured by Bentpic5 and overall the fifth DragonCon 2016 gallery. This year, the Sunday cosplay crowd was still going strong after what seems like a long weekend. For some, it is their final day of what could have been their best weekend of the year. DragonCon is typically […]
DragonCon’s Saturday is the main day when it comes to attendance. Atlanta expected more than 500,000 people visiting the town for the various events and sports games taking place. This doesn’t include the thousands of Georgia locals that come to Atlanta just to see the parade and the DragonCon attendees. People of all ages come out to […]
Friday at DragonCon 2016 definitely packed its fair share of attendees and cosplayers into the host hotels.

This year, attendees were in high numbers on the so-called “Day Zero” for DragonCon. A lot of attendees arrived Wednesday and Thursday to check in and start their con weekend. By the afternoon, there were costumes and cosplays swirling among the lobbies of the select host hotels. Here’s to another year of my photo coverage of the […]

To see the first MomoCon gallery of cosplay at the con held at […]

By the afternoon, there is already a crowd full of costumes and cosplay swirling among the lobbies of the select host hotels. I am lucky enough to attend the convention again this year […]
Today is Embrace Your Geekiness Day (seriously, Google it). Since most of my fellow geeks geek out over multiple fandoms, I thought it would be appropriate to do a small gallery of some of my favorite mashups — the combining of two worlds of fandom or pop culture into one awesome pun or inside joke. […]

Atlanta’s other general nerdery convention, MomoCon, was held last weekend, and while there were some reports of increased harassing activity over previous years, most people posting on various social media venues — and in the many pictures our team there captured — seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely. MomoCon had grown to about 15,000 unique […]
I know that I promised that the second part of the cosplay shots from AWA would be posted on Wednesday, but other content came in that was time sensitive. So, without further delay, here are the rest of the Anime Weekend Atlanta photos from Bentpic5. You can see the first gallery from AWA 2014 here.
Last weekend was the four-day event Anime Weekend Atlanta, more commonly know as AWA.

Sunday saw no slowdown in the waves of people swarming over the host hotels at DragonCon. Many of the large group cosplay shoots happened on Sunday, and Bentpic5 was lucky enough to get some shots at the bathing suit cosplay group photo shoot held at the pool at the Sheraton as well as all over […]
By Saturday evening at DragonCon, the atrium level of the central hotel, the Marriott, was quite literally wall to wall people partying. While that made it more difficult to get pictures of the increasingly creative and often bizarre cosplays, it also meant there were a lot more of them. To get a real sense of what […]
Friday at DragonCon 2014 was even more crowded than anticipated, easily outdoing the number of people squeezed into the atrium level of the Marriott than managed to squeeze in last year. That didn’t stop Bentpic5 from shooting there, or all over the four con hotels, on Friday. Check out his great photos of amazing cosplayers […]
While DragonCon didn’t officially start until 12:01 a.m. Friday, on Thursday the three main host hotels were already packed with attendees, many of them already in costumes and cosplay.

Those of you who know me personally understand that, although I enjoy seeing all sorts of wonderful and well-constructed cosplays, cosplay mashups have always been my favorite. Maybe because in my head, trying to incorporate two different characters or genres into one costume seems twice as hard because creativity is important in order to pull […]
