**Important Info**



This group was made specifically for those of us attending the great Anime-Expo of Los Angeles, California, but any and all fans of conventions or just anime in general are free to join!

Have any stories from past AXs you'd like to share? Tips you want to give newbies to keep them from making the same convention faux pas you made last year? Just want to see what all of the fuss is about?

Then come on in and share your artwork, your cosplay, and your experiences!

Connect with fellow con-goers and keep in touch, even when AX is over and done with. Who knows? Maybe you'll meet someone new and make plans to see them again at the next AX.

:bulletred:Please limit your submissions to no more than 10 at a time.
:bulletred:Be sure to submit your deviations to the proper categories. If you aren't sure where to put something, ask!
:bulletred:COSPLAYERS! Do not submit a billion photos of yourself in the same costume, doing essentially the same thing. Pick a few of your favorites from a photoshoot and submit those. Anything more than 3 or 4 very similar photos will be DENIED.
:bulletred:Be respectful to your fellow artists. No dramu here. Failure to obey this simple rule will result in a ban.
:bulletred:Be groovy and have fun!

Cosplay -- Anime Expo 2015
Hello everyone!

I want to make very clear that this Anime Expo group here on DeviantArt is NOT associated with the SPJA, or with Anime Expo Staff in any way. This is a group founded and managed by a small group of people who have been attending Anime Expo as far back since 1999, and have been table-ing at Artist Alley since 2007. We do not personally know anyone on the staff at Anime Expo, nor are we related to the Anime Expo staff. We are an UNOFFICIAL group of people who just enjoy attending Anime Expo, and want to share our past knowledge of table-ing at Anime Expo Artist's Alley.

This year we did not create an Artist Alley list. Sorry!

For those who are interested in having an Artist Alley table at Anime Expo 2016: There are NO MORE tables available! There is a waiting list for those who want to have a table, but from what I understand the waiting list is very large. So if you are unable to table at Anime Expo 2016, we'll try and keep you posted for Anime Expo 2017 when the time comes.

Thanks for an exciting and talent-filled Artist Alley at Anime Expo 2015! I hope that everyone continues to draw artwork and share it with the world!

Can anyone addressed me where can I find other deviants at the expo?

I'm afraid we haven't organized such an event this year- at least not through any official channels such as the dA admin. I know they typically have a booth at San Diego Comic-Con though. :nod:

I'm currently looking for a partner for my AX AA table. Please see my journal entry about it for details.

Please, does anyone have a table they would like to share with me for AX 2016? I'm willing to split the costs and will pay for my badge along with the package but won't have enough until near the end of this month? Q-Q

Are you still in the hunt for a table? MintVerdant is looking for someone to share their table with. :)

Thank you so much for letting me know! I was fortunate enough to find a partner in March, but can definitely try to find a partner for :iconmintverdant: if they still need a partner. Please let me know and thank you QuQ This is definitely a much more helpful and more active place than AnimeExpo's twitter.

Awesome :w00t: great to hear!

We're not affiliated with Anime Expo btw; just a loose collection of artists. :P The :facebook: Facebook group has a couple official updates and news posts though.
