An event to dress up in full anime costume and just… well, go to the event if you happen to be in Hawaii this weekend. It’s Hawaii’s Largest Anime Convention! Welcome to Kawaii Kon!

This is an annual 3-day celebration of Japanese culture, anime, and pop-culture at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. A lot of fun-things-to-do is what you’ll find during this 3-day event. A few things to mention on what you may experience are Artist Alley, Dealers Room, Karaoke Kompetition, Table Top Gaming, and more. You will also find there will be a notable list of guests that will be attending.

For more information, go to the official website.

  1. Are you attending? If so, and you want to post a blog with pics, that’d be awesome and we could feature that.

  2. Hi Philip! Unfortunately, I won’t be attending this year. I know somebody who will be a cosplay judge. I could interview her about her experience there and being a judge this year. If she has photos, I can also ask for copies to be posted. Your thoughts?

  3. That’d be great but totally up to you! Thanks.

  4. Awesome! When ready, do I post it here in POV or email it to you first? Or how would this work?

  5. Just post here like you’ve done and I’ll move it.

  6. Ok, will do! The event coordinators gave “the go” for an interview and coverage of the event. We can expect my interview to be posted sometime after the weekend since the event will happen the whole weekend. Thank you!

  7. Looking forward to it!
