Louisianime 2010 Baton Rouge (repost from old blog September 17, 2010)

What is the home of Alligators, Zydeco, and Otaku? Louisiana!!! Last weekend was Louisianime, an anime convention in Louisiana (Well duh). This year’s Louisianime (2nd year) was held in the Baton Rouge Crown Plaza on September 10-12. This was my first convention in Louisiana, and there was lots of Creole otaku spirit.

Who Dat?! Master Roshi! Geaux Saints

Ghost Buster, New Orleans Creole 9  This is an awesome Ghostbuster Pack

The con was spacious enough for everybody but still had that ‘small-con feeling.’ Also there were lots of cosplayers costume-playing about.

Monocles and Top-hats are pimp!  Chii from Chobits

Steam-Punk Mad-Hatter  His cane is a spout for tea!

My friend and I hosted the ‘Pose-off’, a game with no winners! How the game is played is that my friend and I make an ass of ourselves by striking a pose, any kind of pose, and then two people come up and try to do the pose.

Kung-fu Knuckles hat!

KamehameHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can I have some energy for my spirit bomb?

This was my first time hosting a panel, and it went over very well. I’d like to thank all the people who played and watched!

The special guests, Scott McNeil and Amelie Belcher (there were more, I just didn’t get to their panels) were awesome! Scott is a character as always, and Amelie was off-the-wall hyper and informative.

Scott McNeil  Amelie Belcher like crappy romance novels

So overall this con was lots of fun with a unique spirit and had a high-level of vigor (9000+ possibly?). I would defiantly attend next year.

…Okay, enough of this sappy everybody-is-a-winner talk (well anybody involved with the pose-off will be losers). Lets end with something I call

“THE MANY FACES OF SCOTT McNEIL!!!”


Wait, is that guy selling Canadian Beer?  Tastes like chicken.

“Wait, is that guy selling Canadian Beer?” – “Tastes like chicken.”

Ahhhh… Boobies!  F*ck you! F*ck you! You're cool.

“Ahhhh… Boobies!” – “F*ck you! F*ck you! You’re cool.”

Oh my he said "doodie."

“Oh my he said ‘doodie’.”
