Anime Milwaukee: Day 1

Myself and son 11 got to the Hyatt Regency in Milwaukee, Wisconsin around 10 a.m. and the cosplayers were already in full effect.

After checking in, registering, and lugging all of our stuff up to our room we got dressed and headed out to the wild Con.

We checked out the Merch room, the Manga library, and the table top game room (my son played me in a game of magic while we talked to a nice college student who was about to move to our hometown for college). We also got in line and waited for autographs. My son wowed voice actors Joel McDonald and J. Michael Tatum with his Kululu costume (they were seriously happy).


My son got a lot of attention and it is still just day 1 of the Con.

A Few Characters We Saw on Day 1

This is just from Friday at Anime Milwaukee and there are so many pictures I didn’t take. A convention is an interesting experience, try one if you haven’t. I will post more later.

Note: I was very tired while doing this post.

    Will you and your son be at any other conventions with the Kululu cosplay? I love Sgt. Frog! I was going to take a picture of the cosplay, but I was in line and about to get a signature of a voice actor. Will you be at Anime Milwaukee next year too?

      Oh you were there? We’ll be at ACEN and Anime Midwest (Chuck Huber who did the voice of Kululu will be there). We will probably go to Anime Milwaukee next year. Not sure if he’ll still be doing Kululu or not though.

        I am going to start a YouTube channel when I get home from school. I really like Sgt. Frog, so i think it would be fun if I cosplayed as a character too and we pretend to have a battle or something. You don’t have to, but I just that it would be cool and bring more attention to both of our blogs.

        I will be at a game tournament during the weekend of Anime Midwest, Do you think we can do something during Anime Milwaukee 2016?


      • madreceiver March 7, 2015 / 2:15 am

        Possibly. I am not sure we’ll be there 100%, but I know both of my boys will probably want to go. So we will probably go.

        That is ok, I just thought it would be something fun to do, and help our websites.

      Ah! Yes! I remember. I think we happen to catch you just as you were coming in from the parking deck. It was my son who had pointed you out. I was happy to see someone doing a cosplay from World Conquest Zvezda Plot because not many people do, and I really liked that show! We just got back from Anime Midwest so more photos will go up of that trip! Glad to hear from you! 🙂
