It only happens one weekend every year. Thousands of people get dressed like their favorite anime / comic book characters, and gather together …
It’s Naka Kon!
Kansas City Photography has been a vendor there since 2011, with a break in 2015 since I was pregnant and my youngest daughter’s due date was the weekend of the convention.
That would have been fun — having my water break at the convention. One for the headlines, right?
For anyone that knows me well, they know I’m in big time love with Sailor Moon. I just adore it. Any time I see a Sailor Moon cosplayer (cosplayers are the amazingly fun peeps who dress up), I (not creepily) fawn and ask if I can take their picture. #OkayMaybeALittleCreepyOnAccident
Even Sailor Moon crossovers are in my realm of obsession.
(Here’s the formula. 1 Anime + 1 Different Anime = Crossover)!
Many of these cosplayers make their OWN COSPLAYS (like the two above). I am always in awe — this gal doesn’t even know how to sew.
Here are some more crossover shots we took at a separate photoshoot outside of the convention (another great reason to do biz at a con is to meet people to book outside shoots like this!):
Also shout out to Vera Cosplay, who is featured in the far left photo!
BONUS: Here is me and the entire fam at Naka Kon last year. We were a Pokémon family! I was Squirtle, and my husband was the Pokémon trainer Ash. My oldest was Charmander, and my youngest was Pikachu!
Planning to go to Naka Kon this year? Make sure to stop by our booth and get your picture taken!
