It’s a bit of a departure for us this week, as we discuss Jennifer’s recent trip to ConnectiCon 2009, a multi-genre convention for anime, gaming, web comics, and other geeky pursuits. We do get a Disney angle in here and there of course…..including an interview with TB8673 of the 501st Connecticut Garrison, who we love love love for their participation in Star Wars Weekends and other geek-tastic events!
Jennifer’s Broke Hoedown blog has a number of pictures of Disney cosplay from ConnectiCon 2009, including the wonderful Carl Fredricksen. Or check out the whole “cosplay” tag on her blog for cosplay pictures from other anime conventions she’s attended.
If you find yourself a little curious about the panel Jennifer co-led with her family, you can check out the slides here…..or just wait a bit, sooner or later we’re gonna have some audio from the panel on a future TDC.
As promised on the show, here’s a fan-made music video from ConnectiCon 2009, featuring footage from Kingdom Hearts. Be sure to watch long enough to catch Mickey, Donald, and Goofy!
And those Halloween pictures we mentioned?
Finally, a public service announcement: Don’t forget that September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day! It’s never too early to start practicing.
