Animazement 2013 - Epic Cosplay

Official website:

Animazement is an annual three day anime convention held during May at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. It is traditionally held over Memorial Day weekend. The convention is designed to be family-friendly.[4] Animazement is run by unpaid staff and volunteers.[5]


The convention typically offers classes, cosplay chess, cosplay contests, dealers room, gaming tournaments, manga library, masquerade ball, musicians, panel discussions, raves, various gaming rooms (arcade, console, retro), video screenings, and voice actors.[4][6][7][8][9]


The convention originates from an 1997 36-Hour Anime Marathon, organized by the Triangle Area Anime Society (TAAS) at North Carolina State University.[1] It was first held in Raleigh, North Carolina at the North Raleigh Hilton in 1998, moved to the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham, North Carolina for 2001, and to the month of May in 2002.[10][11][12] In 2009, four Japanese guests canceled appearances due to quarantine concerns over the Swine flu.[13] In 2009, Animazement moved to the Raleigh Convention Center.[14] Noboru Ishiguro was scheduled to attend the 2012 event, but died prior to the event.[15]

It was great seeing everyone at Animazement. I had a really awesome time. AZ has a strict camera policy compared to most cons, so I mostly just got shots of people outside of the convention on Saturday. There were a lot of great costumes that I missed. MomoCon and AZ fall on the same day for 2014, and we'll be covering MomoCon in Atlanta, GA this year.
