Who doesn’t love anime? Well we do, you can see in our artwork we’re inspired by the genre. The Anime Expo is an annual event held at the Los Angeles Convention Center and is the biggest anime and manga celebration in North America. Each year brings hundreds and thousands of fans, but the fans not only loves it, they participate, they live it. We thought we were fanatical about anime, but not so much now after meeting everyone there. So many people and so many characters. Almost everyone was dressed up in costume. Some character we are familiar with and others created by the wearer. You’d be blown away by the creativity and workmanship these people put into their costume, or should I say, their identity because most if not all stayed in character. Those who were not in character (like us) took pictures.. We took tons of pictures. This year the event was held the first week of July. Too bad we didn’t blog about it until now, but nonetheless it was an exciting adventure, if you haven’t seen the pictures on our facebook page, well, check it out.
