Fanime 2008: Manga Cosplay Convention

Gin Tama CosplayFanimeCon 2008 promised (and delivered) a weekend chock-full of anime, Asian films, manga and video game fun for Bay Area and Silicon Valley otaku. I wasn't able to catch all the events that was planned for this weekend, but I did manage to get a bunch of shots of some of the cool cosplay and generally orderly vibe of this fan-run event.

Anime fans from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley and beyond came out to check out the cosplay, the special guests and all-day / all-night showings of anime and Asian films at FanimeCon 2008. There are cool cosplay, artists alley, publishers' panel discussions, exhibitors and special guest appearances, including manga artist Maika Netsu, Dark Horse Manga editor Carl Horn and a huge group from fan-favorite anime studio, GAINAX.
