Otakon 2015

Otakon 2015This past weekend I made my pilgrimage down to Maryland to attend Otakon 2015. This is my second year attending Otakon, and it was just as awesome this year as last year. Just finished sorting through all my photos, so here goes the obligatory photo post for Otakon 2015!

Otakon Dealers RoomThis year wasn’t too different from what I experienced last year, at least this year I was actually able to pick up my pass on Thursday (after waiting 4.5 hours!). I think attendance was down slightly this year, which might be because of the riots which happened a few months ago in Baltimore. Apparently this year is the last time Otakon will be held in Baltimore, as they plan to move into Washington DC next year.

Otakon Pony Canyon BoothNever the less, dealers room was big as ever. Pony Canyon was there this year, and they had a rather awesome display at their booth. Just look at those Hibike Euphonium cardboard cutouts!

Otakon Chaika CosplayNaturally since Otakon is still the largest anime event on the east coast, there’s bound to be a ton of cosplay! As usual this post is dedicated mostly to some of my favorite cosplay that I spotted at the con. First up we have a lovely Chaika cosplay.

Satsuki's Otakon AdventureOf course while I was at the con I had to do some silly nendoroid photography as well. I brought along my Satsuki nendoroid and had a bit of fun taking her out & about.

Otakon 2015I have to say that I really enjoyed Otakon this year, everyone I met was really awesome and it just had a really nice vibe to it. I’m kind of sad that it’s moving to DC next year as I’m not too sure if I’m able to go down there for it next year. At least I got to experience it the past two years! Overall it was a really fun convention, and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as well 🙂

As always, cosplayers I would love to credit you! If you see your picture here comment below or email me ( nyotakublog@gmail.com ) so I can give you credit! If you want a full resolution photo to use on your page or site, you can always email me and I’ll send it too you.

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Thanks for looking~

  1. Looks like so much fun! It would be a long travel to both Baltimore and DC, and I actually would rather take a trip to DC, so I suppose I’ll be looking forward to that. Though it would be cool to check it out while it’s in Baltimore for the last time.

    • Yeah totally, although I would say as far as a desination I would much rather prefer DC over Baltimore. The convention center at Baltimore is nice, but I’m not a big fan of the city itself lol ^^;

  2. I was the berserk Ryuko 🙂 I feel bad because i fixed up my cosplay a bit for the second day and it looked a bit better D: . Thank you so much for taking a picture I”m so glad you liked it!
    i have a couple pictures of it on my instagram if you’d like to take a look, but it isn’t as good of quality as this picture haha 😛
