This weekend was J1-Con at The Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey. We had a blast we got to see some familiar faces as well as meet new people. We have so much to work on and push out for the press coverage of this event. This was our first time at J1-Con and our first experience was great and the venue was so big it was the perfect size for a con. There is so much dedication and hard work put into this Con by the founder Jason Richardson.
This will be our first time attending J1-Con and I’m looking forward to quite a few things. One being the Blackfinity Gauntlet which is a podcasting summit. The Music Festival and Gaming Tournament.
This weekend will be filled with a lot of cosplay and many popular cosplayers will be attending J1-Con. I’m excited to take pictures of everyone cosplaying, It’s amazing to see how their hard work pays off thru their cosplay.
Each con I go to cosplay is always my favorite part because there is no limit to their creativity, it’s just taken to the next level. I hope I can catch up with some of these cosplayers over the weekend and waiting to see who they choose to cosplay as this weekend is probably the most exciting for me since they have amazing photos on their sites.

I can not wait to attend Steve Conte concert at J1-Con. Steve Conte is an American musician, music producer, guitarist, songwriter, and the lead singer of his own band: Steve Conte NYC. He has done many different projects throughout his career, I love hearing his raspy voice it is very soothing to listen to. His voice is a mix of Billy Joel and David Bowie to me. Most of his music is old school rock. Steve Conte has worked together with different composers and lyricists on various anime soundtracks.
This weekend at J1-Con we will be hitting the music fest on Saturday to see the 4 music performances lined up. The acts set to perform are Sys2matik Ovrl0ad, Andrea M, Rachael Rota and Reef of Law 27. I’ve never heard any of their music prior to writing this post and I have to say it is a mixed bunch and it’s a mix of music that everyone can enjoy. The performances will be held in The Bourbon Room in The ShowBoat Hotel in Atlantic City, this will be my first time at the ShowBoat hotel and The Bourbon Room and the setup with the seats and stage looks amazing. This venue is attached to the hotel which is a bonus and just from looking at the photo it looks like music sounds great in here, I’m excited to see everyone perform at this venue.
This year I am looking forward to being able to see Erica Mendez. She is an American Voice Actress and has done voice-overs for many different anime characters. One role she did was the voice of Gon Freecss in the English version of Hunter x Hunter. Gon was the main character of the anime series which is a big role, she has voiced many other anime characters even some of my favorite characters.
