saboten con cosplayers


Saboten Con is an anime and Japanese culture convention. The convention features a wide range of fun panels and events such as a vendor’s room filled with tons of merchandise for any otaku, gaming tournaments, anime screening, cosplay panels, and even cafes. This year Saboten Con was also happy to announce that they are holding the Southwest Qualifiers for the 2015 circuit of the World Cosplay Summit (WCS). The Saboten Con is being held in Glendale, Arizona at the Glendale Renaissance. The con will have guests such as voice actor Ian Sinclair, cosplayer Electric Lady, and even live performances by songstress Iruma Rioka. The Saboten Con is set for Labor day weekend, August 29 – September 1, which leaves you with four days of otaku fun.

We have been going to the Saboten Con from the very first one in 2008. Over the years the Saboten Con is the largest anime convention in Arizona with attendance reaching 4,002 for the 2013 event. As a proud supporter of cons, cosplay, and anything otaku we’re excited to take photos of amazing costumes and panels; as well as share news from the convention. So, make sure to check back again for coverage of this awesome Arizona anime con.

Gravity Falls is one of the best cartoons from Disney, and it seems to be growing fairly quickly. At the famous San Diego Comic Con, SDCC 2013, there were two hilarious and very very awesome cosplayers supporting the show! Both the Grunkle Stan cosplay and the Dipper cosplay are amazing. Both had the flush on their noses, and have their signature hats. The pose of the Grunkle Stan is just like the show, while Dipper looks like he’s been learning more about the secrets of Gravity Falls.

The protagonists are twin siblings Dipper and Mabel Pines, whom are in for an unexpected adventure when they spend the summer with their great uncle, aka Grunkle Stan, in the mysterious town of Gravity Falls, Oregon.

Today, we’ve found two sweet cosplays to feature from our friends at Cosplay & Fan Gear! Here we have Russia from the hilarious anime Hetalia and Draculaura from the popular doll series Monster High.  In this picture you can tell that they have amazing detail and of course the correct colors are always good, too. On the Russia Hetalia cosplay is a custom made scarf and coat with the exact medal from the show. On the Draculaura Monster High cosplay you can see the awesome crafted frills, vest, and skirt with adorable tulle at the bottom. Both of these costumes were hand made by Cosplay & Fan Gear, and were modeled at Phoenix Comicon 2013.

Last Weekend, May 23-26,  was the south-west pop-culture event Phoenix Comicon 2013. We were there with our cameras ready to take on the crowds of cosplayers at the convention. Unfortunately, there were so many amazing cosplayers that we couldn’t snap shots of all of them. Here are the cool cosplay photos we took from Phoenix Comicon 2013!..
