[PMX2015]: Convention Recap!

PMX2015 came back this year to a new venue, with new panels and workshops and loads of vendors to cater to the many fans who made the trek to the convention! We were lucky enough to have some fun new experiences as well as enjoy an epic concert and beautifully curated Fashion Show! Check out some of our favorite moments from PMX2015!

Shopping:

The number of talented artists that attended was great! There were so many one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by Anime, Games and Manga that it was hard not to walk out of Artist Market with an armful of merchandise!

Fashion:

Everyone in attendance of PMX was donning either amazing Cosplay, or adorable Lolita looks! The special guest Lorina Liddell curated a Fashion boutique that was fully stocked with some of the newest and hottest looks from Japan’s fashion scene! Check out our blog on the FASHION SHOW here!

Panels:

One of the panels we took particular delight in was the “Learn and Play: Go” panel, where we literally sat at a table for about an hour learning how to play Go! (Thanks Evan Cho!) If you’re interested in learning, the Yu.Go Club offers classes in Pasadena every Wednesday from 6-10pm! Check out their website!

Masquerade:

Ah, the Masquerade! Every year we love watching the fans in their handmade cosplay! Some of the outfits are really impressive! Sidenote: One of the judges was dressed at “Grasshopper” Yoo Jae Suk from the “Gangnam Style” video! Win! ^_^

Femme Fatale Interview:
