Mark your calendars for the next Animazement Convention

 While I managed to attend Animazement only on Saturday afternoon, I found the experience quite fun and inspiring. From the "How to Wear Hakama" panel and multiple anime viewing rooms to the multitude of creative costumed characters walking around the Raleigh Convention Center, I can't think of a more effective way to immerse yourself in the richness of Japanese pop culture often depicted in manga and anime. For fun, I sketched several cosplaying attendees as they walked by since you seldom get the opportunity to draw manga characters from life. Animazement is held on Memorial Day weekend, so it might be a good idea to mark your calendars for next year's convention.
