Ki-Tori Con 2018

Ki-Tori Con is a new anime con that held its inaugural convention at the end of March.  Held at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, GA, the picturesque setting proved to be the perfect backdrop for the variety of costumes on display.  If the quality of cosplay at its debut is any indication, Ki-Tori Con is sure to draw in more anime fans and cosplayers in the forthcoming years.

Atlanta Steampunk Expo 2017

Envisioned by convention expert and steampunk costumer, Bill Harrison, the Atlanta Steampunk Expo (ASE) held its initial convention in November 2017.  Run by a friendly, experienced staff, the convention wisely started small and was effectively a Saturday-Sunday convention that included a “soft opening” on Friday night.  Although it started small, ASE still attracted top-notch talent in costumers, guests, and vendors.  Attendees enthusiastically welcomed the new convention and await its return.
