Ogeeku Podcast | Ep. 21 – Anime California

Charlotte, Jason, Joshua and I had the chance to take in some air-conditioning and chat geekery while we were at Anime California in Garden Grove on August 22nd.

While we were recording, there was a cosplay dodge ball tournament happening just outside our window. If you can’t imagine what that would look like, just picture Deadpool throwing balls at Mario as he runs away. Absolutely fascinating stuff.


Anime California Cosplay Gallery

The Ogeeku team had the opportunity to visit first year convention Anime California, hosted at the Hyatt Orange County August 22nd-24th.

Although it was a small convention experience, we noticed that there was an incredible percentage of cosplayers in comparison to casual attendees.

Definitely not a complaint!

We love seeing masses of fandom enthusiasts rockin’ self-built and fine crafted cosplay, sharing their stories and having a great time!

Below is a gallery of some of our favorite shots from this weekend.

You can find the images also on our Facebook page (where we encourage you to tag and share with your friends!)
