Recon 2014: Guam’s Largest Anime, Manga, Cosplay, Gaming & Pop Culture Convention

Today I attended the 1st day of the 2014 Recon event at the Agana Shopping Center here on Guam. I love costumes & art of all kinds. I had fun seeing everyone’s characters. So much talent and imagination. A big feature of the event was the presence of Steve Blum, the “king of anime,” famous voice-over, visiting the convention. Gaming tournaments, vendor sales, art, activities, and cosplay contests, something for everyone!
