Momocon was every bit as fun this year as it was last year. Okay every bit as fun and then some!
Although any and all thoughts of this being a ‘smaller con’ were put to rest last year, this year basically did a dance on those thoughts’ grave while wearing fancy light-up stilettos. Momocon spanned two hotels this year and offered up a host of big name guests. The crowds were out in full creatively cosplayed force as well, and over the course of three days there was always, always something exciting to be done or seen.
Don’t take my word for it though!
Nothing beats being there, but if a picture is worth a thousand words, surely a video comes close, right? So here you go! Some walking, some panels, some randomness– a veritable smorgasbord of Momocon goodness in case you missed it this year.
The Middle Tennessee Anime Convention (MTAC) is a three day anime convention hosted in Murfresboro, Tennessee. Organized by ArtsCubed, the convention has grown substantially from it’s modest 300 person attendance in 1999 to a whopping 9,796 head count last year!
This year, MTAC boasted a prestigious line-up of events and guests including Martin Billany, Daniel Coglan, Jillian Coglan, DJ Pete Ellison, Dan Green, Samantha Inoue-Harte, Vedetta Marie, Vic Mignogna, Marianne Miller, Chii Sakurabi, and Eric Stuart.
Site correspondant Mickey McClendon was on the scene to capture some of the magic on camera and on film. Fun fact: it was his very first convention!
Check out some snippets of the con (and some very unique interviews!) below!
My personal favorite, a shout out from Little Kuriboh himself- Martin Billany!
The day was ending, but the concerts were just beginning. We all clip-clopped our corseted way to the main hall to revel in some amazing music…and were in for quite the treat when we arrived!
