Just wanted to give a bit of a head’s up that Ai-Kon, Manitoba’s largest anime convention, will be happening this year just next weekend – July 20-22 at the Winnipeg Convention Center. I’ll be there to watch some anime, take in some informative panels, purchase some fantastic art, and take pictures of the best cosplay Winnipeg has to offer.
Information about Ai-Kon can be found at http://www.ai-kon.org/, but it will be running around the clock starting Friday afternoon and ending Sunday at 4. Admission can be purchased either ahead of time from ticketmaster online or at the ticketmaster window at the convention center.
I attended last year’s Ai-Kon, and wrote a bit about it along with some pictures of the cosplayers there – taken with my old camera so they’re not the best quality. The article can be found at the following link, with the pictures at the bottom of the article: http://www.tgr-net.com/2011/07/ai-kon-2011-post-show-summary/
