MetroCon… You know you like futile Japan when the theme is Ninjas vs. Samurai!
What is MetroCon and where is it?
MetroCon is the largest anime convention in Florida. Located in Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, Florida, it will be their eighth year. MetroCon will be rocking out and jamming with special guests, artist, cosplayers, music bands, and more!
MetroCon will have an all-star cast of special guests.
First, lets start off with the talented Yaya Han. A cosplayer, costume designer, model and entertainer, she travels all over the United States and in other countries too, showing her talent and skills of designer of ten years! Her passion burns deep and she’s not afraid to get in the line of judging costumes. She will pull off and amazing feat this time. With Comic Con and MetroCon going on the same weekend, she’ll finish off her weekend with us! A first for her! What a gall!
Second we have Spike Spencer. The first time you meet Spike, you’ll never forget. His style is unmatched. A voice actor since the early nineties, his voice talent lead him to animes and video games, such as Evangelion, Suikoden, Orphen, Mar , Buso Renkin, Bleach and many more on anime. On the video game side, he has done video game voices on World of WarCraft: The Burning Crusades, Tales of Vesperia, Steambot Chronicles, Star Ocean 2, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and much more. This guy is worth shecking out because of his panels that include but are not limited to "How to Be A Frickin Genius Voice Actor, Step One", "What Happens At The Con, Stays At The Con?", And "Don't Kill Your Date (And Other Cooking Tips)". Can’t pass up this opportunity!
Let’s break this heavy text with some Jimmyfied slide show.
Next we have the dynamic KellyJane and TealPirate (aka Kelly and Jenn) are two cosplayers from the UK, and are rated as some of the highest-ranking comedians on YouTube. Just check them out on their channel! Here http://www.youtube.com/user/JenxtheJinx
