At long last we have left 2016 behind and are in a new year! This means new conventions, new cosplay and undoubtedly SOME form of new thermoplastic (honestly…I am amazed at how many are on the market now). To help you warm up for convention season we’d like to spice up your January with Taiyou Con!
Taiyou is an anime focused convention hosted at the Mesa Convention Center in Mesa, Arizona. It runs this weekend (January 6th-8th) and promises to be a spectacular jump start to the new year. Here’s the run down on their guests of honor…

- Teddy Loid – DJ and Sound Producer
- Lotus Juice – Popular Anime Rapper
- Shihoko Hirata – Songstress from Persona 4
- Lunar Lyn – Cosplayer and Masquerade Judge

Guest aside, Taiyou Con has a number of exciting events such as…

Taiyou will also have an artist/exhibitor hall available to its attendees on the following days:

Our very own Cosplay Savant/Editor, Samantha Kitts, will be at Taiyou all three days. She is filming, taking photos and interviewing attendees. If you would like a photo please visit the FGN Facebook page each day to see what she is wearing (after all, she has to make it easier for you to find her 😉 ).
We hope to see you at Taiyou Con 2017!
