'Made you look!
Well, you know what they say: "Sex sells!" However, we have a better reason than that to have a smoking hot picture of Momokun on this page update. She is actually one of the cosplayers that we talk about in our latest article.
What's the topic? It's whether Patreon is finally showing the first signs of casualties in cosplay.
Some might not realise it, but I have noticed an overall decline in spirits and genuine cosplay in the community, and I think it may be due to Patreon.
It could be a case of me seeing that I may subconsciously want to see, because as some of you may know, I have never been a fan of the sweeping trend of cosplayers resorting to Patreon to help support them. I've listed the reasons before in past articles, so I'm not about to bore you or fill this update with them.
What I haven't done, or been able to do before, is give somewhat tangible examples of what I call "Patreon Rash" on the cosplay community.
If you're bored, or have a good 10 minutes to spare, I beseech you to check out our latest article, "Is Patreon Good for the Art of Cosplay?"
Thanks for stopping by!
So as a part of our new direction of increasing our scope into reviews of products and services, All Cool Things™ will be reviewing a vacation gifted to us by an agent from TraVerus Global.
We will be reviewing the redemption of this in all parts, and everything that we went through in the process.
We at All Cool Things™ were happy to have the opportunity to attend Final Round 2018 and witness the largest Southeastern Fighting Game Tournament in the USA!
For those that do not know, Final Round is an annual international EVO affiliated tournament that is streamed live all over the world.
Heavy hitting sponsors such as Capcom and Bandai Namco show up in full effect to share goodies from the past, as well as for the future, such as the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and Soulcalibur VI, which were both on hand for unlimited play!
Final Round is beginning to embrace cosplay as an aspect of their tournament and is definitely beginning to have a convention-esque vibe to it! There was a cosplay contest with 11 contestants, but I'm sure that by next year, it will feel more like a full cosplay event, just based on the buzz and response of this one. Hershey Kissu, all the way from Canada came to compete in the cosplay contest as Morrigan from Darkstalkers!
Navz from Victrix Gaming was there, and we got to try out what could be the next big thing in professional gaming: the Victrix PRO AF! These professional grade headsets come complete with hybrid noise cancellation and patented trademark microphone technologies that were exclusive and military grade!
Who knows, but with some more guidance and word of mouth, Final Round could become something to rival Anime Weekend Atlanta and Momocom. 'Maybe it will even take Dragon Con by the tail..?
Wow! Dust off the cobwebs! Sorry for the inactivity. Hopefully that is over!
Please check out the "Take It or Leave It" under our "Stuff" heading. We have a brand new interview with Neverending Dreamz. In case you've been under a rock (like us) he is an up and coming cosplayer and master of the keyblade!
Also, for the first time ever, we have bonus material for members of the site, only! Yup, "Membership has its privileges."

October 15, 2016 marked a great moment in Georgia Convention history as AniBlaze officially completed their first convention!
It was somewhat impromtu, to test the waters and get the word out about AniBlaze, but was a success nonetheless!
