Otakon is in full force this weekend in Baltimore. If you are unfamiliar take a look at the photos from the Baltimore Business Journal. Baltimore has been hosting this convention for fans of anime, asian cinema, and more since 1999. Attendance has steadily risen over the past number of years, with it reaching 31,000 last year. While I cannot say I can pick out who these costumed aficionados are supposed to be, what I can say is that there always seems to be a lot of tails, and entirely too many cat eye contacts. Unfortunately this year, I am out of town. If you're downtown at all this weekend, I'm sure it will be great people watching! Enjoy!
