There were plenty of reasons to check out Mizucon, Miami's annual anime convention, last weekend. There were parties. There were panels. There were workshops detailing the intricacies of Japanese rope-tying, which doesn't sound all that exciting until you realize it's for bondage in the bedroom. (More on that later.)
But the biggest draw? The cosplay, obviously.
From bad-ass anime babes to proud Bronies, Mizucon had it all. And we got it all on film.
Is this guy supposed to be Hurley from Lost? My boyfriend circa 2002 on his way to jam band practice? Either way, dude, I admire your chutzpah and character commitment, but ... a pedicure is a beautiful thing.
The signs on these girls' chests read "Will Yuri For Pocky." According to her and her companion, "yuri" means "girl love." You know this recession's a bitch when you have ladies selling make-out seshes for Japanese wafer treats.
Guys, take a tip from the ladies up there. Don't sell yourselves short. Make us work for that bear hug.
