This year is Ani-me‘s 6th year and is the Central Valley’s largest anime convention. This event is held at The Big Fresno Fairgrounds in Fresno, California. This will be G33k-hq’s 2nd time covering this event and my first time to attend. I am very excited to be able to cover the event this year. Thanks to Rick the promoter for having us.
Looking at his cosplay guest list looking forward to seeing Wynsom Rose aka Haphazard Hatters and Overworld Cosplay who I recently got to shoot as they modeled at the Geek Fashion Show at SacAnime. Can’t forget I get to see Liz aka Miss Alphabet at Ani-Me.
Below is the official detail for the event and a few of the pictures that the Mad Scientist (Matt) shot for us from Last years event.
