Real Talk by J. Valdez

If you’ve been sleeping on Tekko, it’s time to wake up.  Hosted by the Pittsburgh Japanese Cultural Society, Tekko is a 4 day con, celebrated its 14th year with record attendance numbers, and what in my opinion was, an amazing weekend.

Out of the Abyss, I’m Gremlik! The 8-Bit Troll you need to know.  What did I do since these goofs at Play Legit woke me up early? Well, I watched Fantastic Four.  It was an exceptional movie.  Be sure to pay full price.  Watch it in 3D even.  Bring a date.  Here is some info I found in August.  Let’s get this over with.  I’m Dizzy!

Indiana Comic Con 2015

Real Talk By: J.Valdez

I only got the chance to attend Indiana Comic Con on Saturday, and I didn’t get to stay too long. I also missed out on getting a picture with Jason Momoa,  because the line was way too long and I was really hungry. But I definitely enjoyed my time there, there were many great cosplays, and a good number of interesting panels going on. Almost spent a lot of money in the dealers area, really tempted to buy the Hound’s helmet from Game Of Thrones. Hope you enjoy the picture gallery.

I also wasn’t expecting to interview or record any video, so I left my mic and stabilizer at home. Then I ran into this guy, who created his steampunk character over the course of a few years, and has a moving dragon on his shoulder.

The full gallery will be uploaded here

Real Talk By: J.Valdez

This was my second time at Ohayocon. I knew I was in for a great weekend when I got to the lobby with a friend, and he ended up playing guitar for two other con goers that were singing/rapping. We didn’t know who they were, and I don’t think I saw them again during the weekend. This con was a bit different from the last, I made some friends through the facebook group, so I wasn’t just a lone wanderer this time. I met up on occasion with other con goers, friends, shared a few drinks, took a few pictures. Then at some point I decided to be on the other side of the camera. I became Wilfred, and walked through the con to see what it was like. It helped me see what it’s like to be a cosplayer, the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of it. Continue reading “Ohayocon 2015!”
