It’s a Big Shiny Robot!

I love meeting new people. Especially when it’s someone who has similar interests to me. That’s why when I met Lucas I knew we would have a geek good time! Lucas is the co-founder of Big Shiny Robot a site for nerd news and reviews. Check out the video where I talk to Lucas about our first impressions of the first ever Salt Lake Comic Con.

Also make sure you guys check out Big Shiny Robot. They are posting some cool stuff over there and we are proud to call them friends! More Ktdata.Net coverage of the 2013 Salt Lake Comic Con coming soon!

I love to cosplay. It’s a fun to dress up as some of my favorite characters. Doing it at a convention is even better because many people are doing the exact same thing. There is only one thing I struggle with. I can’t sew and when I try it looks terrible. Hale Centre Theatre (yes the spell is correct, they are that kind of theatre) rents out their costumes from previous productions. So you know they are made very well and have lots of detail in them. Deedo had a chance to interview them during the 2013 Salt Lake Comic Con! Take a look at the video below!

The Many Faces of Salt Lake Comic Con 2013

Salt Lake City had it’s first ever Comic Con! I never thought I would see the day that I could attend a Comic Con (especially one that is in my back yard!). One of my favorite things to do at conventions is to see all the different costumes people have. I am always amazed at the craftsmanship and attention to detail that people put into their costumes. Check out the video below of some awesome costumes Deedo and I saw when we were wandering the convention floor doing interviews!

If you were a fan of our Rainbow Dash in a Flash contest this is a convention for you! The one thing I love about conventions is that you can learn about other conventions while you are there! The Crystal Mountain Pony Con is a convention for fans of My Little Pony. I got a chance to talk with Aaron and Blake about My Little Pony and the convention. Could this be on our list of events we cover next year? Let us know if  you want to see that.

This was one of the more interesting booths from Anime Salt Lake 2013. I never thought I would see a leather-smith at a convention but here we are! Check out this interview Deedo got with David from Rose & Thorn leather. Deedo even asks a question about “support.”

Anime Salt Lake 2013 – Day 2: I.S. Design

I’ve always been a fan of steampunk and this booth in Artist Alley caught my eye. I got a chance to talk with Isaac from I.S. Design about his awesome creations. The thing that I love about these creations is that you can still use them. Who wouldn’t want a steam punk style power glove?!

Anime Salt Lake 2013 – Day 1: Trish and David

anime parents

One thing that is awesome about going to an anime convention is to see all the different people who attend the event. Most of the time we forget that these conventions are not just for teenagers but for people from all walks of life. I saw Trish and David sitting and talking to each other so I wanted to see what brought them to Anime Salt Lake.

Helalia

The one constant at any anime convention you go to is cosplay. It’s even better if you have a group of friends that want to cosplay with a specific theme. I got a chance to stop and talk to Brittany and her costume from Hetalia! She was uh… volunteered by her friends for this interview.
