Anime Weekend Atlanta 2011

This was our first convention we had ever been to, vended at, and sponsored! We went as Otaku no Baka. We went primarily as a cosplay vendor with a lot of Bleach cosplays. We learned a lot about running our private retail company and met a lot of great people. Road/Vending Crew of HERETICPRIME, Jennifer Rossiter Strength, Jeffrey Wade, and Nicholas Bray.
We got so many great pictures at this con! The sad thing is that the pictures are low res, as it was 2011 and most low to mid range priced phones did not have great high res cameras, yet. If you want to see more pics, check out our Gallery. We have lots of awesome pics from different conventions and events.

Anime Weekend Atlanta 2015

All Cool Things™ had an awesome time at the Anime Weekend Atlanta 2015 and it was the first time I went to a convention in cosplay!  On Friday I went as Darth V, a mashup of Darth Vader and V from V for Vendetta.  On Saturday I went as Popo Mr. Popo, a mashup of Mr. Popo from Dragon Ball Z and a cop. (Get it?) I got to hang out with the Swaggin’ Ball Z crew as a Mr. Popo from an alternate dimension. (We had Mr. Popo’s from both sides of the law!) This was the BEST time I ever had at an Anime Weekend Atlanta!  There always seemed to be something going on and we got to hang with our business partners at True Total Empire Inc.

Cosplay Night at Battle & Brew March 2016

On March 12, 2016, All Cool Things™ attended one of many of Battle & Brew’s Cosplay Nights. Even though any night is welcome to cosplay, Battle & Brew will host nights especially dedicated to the art and lifestyle.  Sometimes the nights are themed. I think that night’s theme was Superheroes and Supervillains Road Crew of HERETICPRIME

AniBlaze Mini-Con 2016

Final Round is the Southeast USA’s largest competitive video game tournament with professional and amateur gamers from all over the world attending.

Final Round has had competitors such as Diago, Justin Wong, Low Tier God, and groups such as Team Spooky participate.

All Cool Things™ hopes to be involved in a greater capacity in 2019.




MegaCon Tampa 2018

In late September of 2018, All Cool Things™ attended MegaCon Tampa 2018 in Tampa, Florida.
MegaCon 2018 was not like most cons we have attended as it seemed to have a strong element of horror and fans of horror.

There were many special headlining guests but I found the con to be lacking.  It was very expensive to get autographs and signed pictures and the accommodations for food could have been handled much better.  On Sunday, lines lasted for hours just to get a $10 confection burger and fries or con pizza.  There were also a lot fewer attendees than I expected.

By the way, I was very impressed with the Teddy Bear Walker Girl.  When I commented on how well her face looked like a zombie, her mother replied, “Oh that’s how she usually does.  That’s just teen angst!” When they walked away, sure enough, that’s just how she still looked.
