In this Episode, Francis and Josh recap their San Diego Comic Con International experience.

This was an amazing experience, that was made possible by Jeff Burns of Super Geeked Up and Shelley Rossell from Back When We Were Interesting.
Listen in as the boys tell you the tale of walking into the CW Press Junket for the TV show, Arrow.  Or how they walked right into the famed Hall H like they owned it, during the WB Panel.

 

 

Nan Desu Kan 2015 Wrap Up

WPLogo164x562

Once again, POI invaded Nan Desu Kan 2015 in its new location in Downtown Denver. It was a busy weekend in Downtown Denver, with The Taste of Colorado going on and NDK – Downtown was a wash of colorful characters.

This was our 3rd year with NDK.  We love returning to the First Convention that gave us Press Credentials.  This year marked the First year in a new location – The Sheridan Downtown Denver.  This year, everything was bigger; The venue in general has more space, giving each area more room to spread about and invite new faces to the Convention.  This year was also different for me, as i bought a camera and NDK would be my first run at taking pictures at a Convention.

Because of timing, most of my time this year was spent in the evening, roaming the Lobby and Artist Alley – which was open till 12midnight each night!  With the bigger venue, Artist Alley was about 30% larger than it had been in previous years.  I saw some new and familiar faces with the added area.  Artist Alley is always my favorite place to hang out and chat with the Artist.  I was able to sit and chat with Lair of Abraxas – They make custom jewelry and clothing of a Steampunk feel.  I also ran into Carla the Dragon Lady – she and I had a chat at Denver ComicCon earlier this year, and it was nice to catch up with her.

NDK-20153

One thing i never made it to, im sad to report is the Vender Room.  Normally, I make sure get my tasty Japanese treats, and puruse the toys and statues i hope to purchase one day.  I just got so wrapped up in taking pictures and chatting with show goers, that i somehow never made it to the room. I guess these things happen when you’re having fun!

I think the venue change to Downtown will overall be a great move by NDK – The larger space alone should be enough, but the possible added revenue to shops in the surrounding area should benefit as well.  Keeping Artist Alley open till midnight will allow more people to check out what Artists have to offer, but also for the Artist to make more money.  I hope to see the Vender Room hours extended as well. Everyone i spoke with, was happy with the venue change as well.  The general conciseness i got from the people i spoke with was ‘Everything is just, bigger’
