AnimeNEXT 2014

AnimeNEXT 2014One of my goals for this year was to get out to more anime conventions, and this past weekend I did just that! Today we look at AnimeNEXT, an anime convention held yearly at the garden state expo center (About an hour or so from Manhattan). This was my first time attending so I was excited to see what was in store. Needless to say it was tons of fun! This post is dedicated all the wonderful cosplay that AnimeNEXT had to offer. Enjoy!

AnimeNEXT Sword Art Online CosplayOne of the things I loved about AnimeNEXT was the location, mostly because of the outdoor space outside the hotel that turned out to be a great place to take cosplay photos. I think I spent most of my time outside while at the convention, only going inside the expo hall to cool off from the heat.

Animenext free cosplaySince part of the convention was held at a hotel, it’s only natural that the grounds had a pool! Needless to say there were plenty of Free! cosplayers who would congregate here. Since it was so warm and sunny it was a great day for a swim too.

Animenext-2014-Ryuko-Nui-CosplayLots of Kill la Kill cosplay at the convetion, which was awesome to see since I’m a huge fan of the series. Here we have a lovely Ryuko as well as a Nui cosplay by Nekonami Cosplay.
