Anime NYC 2018: Masquerade Ultra Deluxe

Anime NYC Logo

Isn’t the Masquerade everyone’s favorite part of an Anime Convention? It’s where cosplayer’s get to showcase what they poured their hard work and dedication into. Whether be through sewing, knitting, molding and other forms of crafting, I am excited to see it. I also love to see the skits prepared for these events, they are usually- always the funniest way to see some of our favorite characters portrayed.

This year the contestants did not disappoint.

J1-Con 2018: Niic The Singing Dog

J1 Con

Niic (Pronounced “Nice”) The Singing Dog is exactly what his name says and I didn’t think it was going to be literal when I walked into the panel area. Kyle McCarthy is the voice behind the singing dog, such a good voice for the indie-pop music he creates. I’m happy I didn’t look up Niic prior to going into his performance, having that mystery about a performer you’ve haven’t heard of yet is always fun. After the performance I walked out a fan, Niic has a good voice and the vibrant green color of the suit is really pleasing to the eyes. I honestly enjoyed the show even more once he started singing covers of some classic 90s songs and the Teen Titans theme song. Continue reading

J1 Con

Sys2matik Ovrl0ad is one of the bands I mentioned in my post about the J1-Con: Music Fest and I have to say they did not come to disappoint. Sys2matik Ovrl0ad had a great set to sit through and they were in pretty good spirits when it was such a small crowd that I wish more people would have come to enjoy the performance.

This past weekend we were able to do press coverage for J1-Con in Atlantic City, NJ. The con was held at the Showboat Hotel which had more than enough space, this was my first time at the Showboat, J1-Con and I was blown away at how big this hotel was and seeing the usage of the venue space. The Bourbon Room was nothing but amazing it blew my mind learning about the history involving past performances as well as the J1-Con events held there.
