This was the very first Kakkoi-con so I was interested to see what it would be like. The turnout was very good for a first year. I figured close to a thousand people. The only real problem was that alot of the panels got changed or cancled. This actually worked to our advantage, but more on that later. First, on to the pics...
Naruto, Orohime, and a captain from Bleach.
Charactures from Eternal Sonata dukking it out. My moneys on the girl.
This poor girl was terrified. We bought her in front of a group of about 40 otaku. Like a mouse cornered by a snake. But more on that story later...
Anemone from Eureka Seven.
One of the Gothic Lolitas roaming the con.
The Joker and one of the girls from Final Fantasy. This Joker was realllly good.
The girls from the Maid Cafe. I could have spent all day there.
Another Gothic Lolita and Chii from Chobits.
Sora from Kingdom Hearts.
Ichigo vs. Vash. The fight of the century!
Negi and his herem... ah, I mean his students.
I was going to save her, but I forgot my body armor at home. Oh well, she's been dead before. She'll get over it.
Sword fighting, otaku style. (we use foam swords)
Cat demon? And two of the girls from Code Geuas. To bad Nanalie wasn't there.
Two more Jokers. Why do I keep looking at the one on the left and keep thinking "naughty nurse"
Mugen from Samarai Champloo.
Poor girl, she just doesn't get a break. Oh well, third times the charm?
Misty, Ash, and Pikachu.
Hurari and Lucky Star.
Sorry, too dark. Akio from Air Gear.
Don't shoot! You can have my Sailor Moon plushie.
Ever wonder what Master Chief looked like under the helmet?
Kingdom Hearts yaoi?
Nice Doctor. Big gun.
Not sure who she is, but nice costume.
As seen in the background.
When I take these pictures they are very large, so I shrink them down for web display. This means that some things get lost in the background. So here is some examples of what you missed.
What is so special about this panel? I only spent about 8 hours in it over the course of two days.
Batman in disguise keeping an eye on the Jokers? You be the judge.
The zombies show up at every con.
Just because you are in the picture frame doesn't mean you have to smile for the camera.
The Random Sh** Panel
So what was the Random Sh** Panel (RSP) you ask? It was only the greatest Con panel ever. The RSP (so that I can call it the Random Stuff Panel) was not a scheduled panel. The 'panel' started out with 3 girls and 1 guy who got board, found an empty room, and started talking about random stuff. I joined the party a few minutes later, much to my surprise. (Like so many other unsupecting victems) 4 and 1/2 hours later aprox 40 - 50 people were kicked out of the room as an actual scheduled panel was set to start.
We had so much fun that we decided to do it again on Saturday if we could find a room. We did find a room and started the panel again with just 4 people. Our resident KH Mougle along with some others was essential in getting more audience members into the panel. (Usually by grabbing them and dragging them in.) Soon James showed up and me and him started to MC the panel. 3 and 1/2 hour, choirs singing the Pokemon theme song, The internet is for porn, and If I Was Gay, and a ton of laughs later we were kicked out of the room again to make way for a scheduled panel. Did I forget to mention that we had about ~80 people in the room by the time it was done?
