Youmacon 2014 (Original)

This was my first trip to Detroit's annually held cosplay convention known as Youmacon,  it was something out of this world!

This is the one time of the year (besides Halloween) you can dress up as your favorite character from a video game, movie, anime or even television show and not be weird! Well a bunch of adults in costumes..ehh well we need to let loose every once in a while, tricks don't always have to be for kids! So Youmacon is like Halloween, minus the candy, plus cooler costumes and two extra days! Thousands gather to show off their costumes, go to panels with celebrity speakers, watch anime, play video games, shop, eat drink and be marry! There's tons of cool things you can get into, depending on your preference.

All of the events are fun. There's literally something for everyone. However, it's not the events or the celebrity guests, or the fancy lights that make Youmacon. It's the people. The costumes are the most exciting part! I think even old Clint himself would agree, It's all about the good, bad and the ugly. How much work some participants put into the cosplay is mind blowing! Traveling across the vast wonderland known as Youma I came across many interesting people.
