**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!

I will be at AX this year on Saturday the 4th. I will also be doing free photoshoots to anyone interested in getting there pictures taken. 

also I will be dressing up for my first time so if you see me come say hi. ill be dressed up as a star fleet officer holding a camera.
Unsure if I am allowed to ask this here.


Hello, recently I have stumbled upon a problem involving roomates, and unfortunately I a now out of them. :/

Which is what brought me here.

I am looking for a total of at least four people willing to bunk with, I will set up the hotel reservation. I prefer to stay within the Sheraton Hotel in Downtown LA, but will be perfectly fine if others have any other choices. I plan on staying from Day 0 through the following July 1st - July 6th *I am coming in from Oregon and don't like leaving on Day 4* But again I am fully willing to compromise that date if needed to make things a bit cheaper.

If anyone is interested within this offer please send a note down my way~

If it helps gain some people, I bring my own sewing supplies just in case anyone needs any needed/quick cosplay repairs.


Thank you :heart:

Thanks. :)

Just moved to California, and this will be my first AX. Looking forward to meeting new people and taking lots of pictures while I'm there, while making new contacts.
Feel free to watch me and I will be sure to do the same.

Take care.
