Hello again everyone! Kendra here, and I’m back to share a bit of my photo coverage of Otakon 2017. Otakon is one of the largest anime conventions held on the East coast, and this year was the move to Walter E. Washington convention center in downtown Washington, D.C. The con itself has primarily been held in Baltimore, Maryland (with its younger sister con, “Otakon Vegas” held in Las Vegas, Nevada). It was announced back in 2013 by Otakorp, Inc, (the non-profit organization that puts together the con) that the convention would be moving to a new home just down the highway in 2017.
The move was definite needed change of paste. The DC convention center, which is also home to AwesomeCon, had more than enough space to accommodate Otakon ever growing amount of attendees. Official numbers haven’t been released yet, but the con has averaged between 20,000-30,000 con goers each year since 2004.
But enough of that, let’s get to the photos!! Definitely a massive amount of amazing cosplays on display in DC. Check out the ones that caught my eye!! What are your favorite pictures? Let us know in the comments!
