My personal favorite panel was a live animation with Naoki Yoshibe, an animator that animated the first opening of Jo Jo's bizarre adventure! It was an amazing and really inspiring experience! It was really unbelievable what he could animate and draw in under only an hour! I really enjoyed all of the panels we were able to catch! I really wish I could clone myself so I could go to more panels!!!
I also really enjoyed putting together my own cosplay for the event! Cosplaying a passion of mine because I love bringing characters to life through the art of makeup and costume design! I love how no matter your race, height, or weight everyone and anyone can cosplay! I love seeing the unique and creative twists people can bring to the table!!!On July 26th, 27th, and the 28th, my family and I went to the annual Otakon convention hosted at Washington D.C!!! This has been the third year my and family and I have gone to Otakon! Since they moved the convention to Washington D.C, it has almost become a summer tradition!
Otakon is one of my favorite events of the year! Not only do my sister and I get to share our love of Japanese animation with everyone else, we get to participate in panels, meet world-famous Japanese animators, directors, song-writers, voice-actors, and producers, and meet other passionate cosplayers!
