Just a little while ago, I was at the Los Angeles Convention Center taking tons of pictures at this year’s Anime Expo. While the Expo used to be held in Anaheim, it moved to downtown L.A. a few years ago so they could accommodate more people. And based on the crowds the past two years, it was a smart move.
While I’ve attended many conventions, the thing that really impresses me about Anime Expo is the level of fan participation. A huge percentage of the crowd dresses up. While Comic-Con may be more popular, Anime Expo beats it in terms of attendee participation. At any rate, I went to the Expo to take pictures of people in costume, and if you hit the jump, you’ll see almost 70 images. Some are really well done.
