The largest Anime convention in Wisconsin, Anime Milwaukee, was ‘on’ full force all the way to closing time Sunday at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, WI! Fun, popular, all age friendly event displaying great vendors, colorful cosplays and Kigurumi’s running around en mass – only at an Anime convention! Cosplays ranged from Daft Punk, Marvel, DC, Manga, Kigurumi, all range Anime to Steampunk and medieval! Whew, it was all there – loud and proud! Luved it – especially the Symphonic Anime Orchestra where volunteer fans performed – some decked in cosplay.

Loved the Cosplays here – hamburger dude, Fullmetal Alchemist crossplay and Titan pajamas grabbed me – but Daft Punk was my jam! One convention thing stood out – camaraderie – no bullying and total acceptance. Luv Milwaukee’s cosplay vibe – no hating. Convention line-up included a Charity Ball, Cosplay combat chess, art show, children’s programming, cosplay meet ups, a huge Maid Cafe, a rave, manga library, and a masquerade. The event was well thought out and a finely managed success with something for everyone.
Anime Milwaukee 2015 – success!!!
