MouseGuest Mini-Meet: Saturday 3/22 at Anime Boston

18 Mar

I’m always surprised that there’s not more crossover between Disney fans and anime conventions. After all, both Disney Parks and anime cons are places where full grown adults let their inner children run rampant. Both are heavily infested with wanna-be pirates, and with girls in princess dresses . . . though at the anime cons those girls tend to be a good bit older, and not always actually female. Which is, perhaps, part of the reason why I always feel right at home.

Dan Hess (of MouseGuest Weekly and Venis Productions) is one of only two of my friends from the Disney Digerati who I’ve actually met in person, and it’s because he and I both attend AnimeBoston, which is this coming weekend. And we figured hey, since we’ll both be in town, why not see if any MouseGuest listeners want to get together for lunch?

We’re meeting up for lunch with at least one listener (hi Chris!) at the Au Bon Pain in the Prudential Center Mall, at noon on Saturday. We picked this spot because it’s technically outside the convention, so you don’t have to register . . . but the people-watching should still be fabulous (many convention-goers will be dressed as their favorite anime characters). If anybody else is interested in getting together, drop me a note or just show up! We’ll be glad to see you.

    Oh, now that’s an interesting thought . . . yes, I might indeed be dressed as PenPen, a rockhopper penguin from Neon Genesis Evangelion. And I’ll be accompanied by Zuko, from Avatar.

    I’m feeling lazy though and not sure I want to deal with the costume. it’s so much easier to cosplay at ConnectiCon, when I’m staying at the hotel connected to the convention center, instead of commuting daily from home.

    i hear there’s a rumor that Mr. Brokehoedown — aka Collateral Damage — will be there. Confirm/deny?

    The wife is feeling better and it looks like I am in. Yeah! My daughter may be freaked out my a 5 foot penguin, but it will be good practice for when we go to WDW in November.
