Welcome to our Cosplay Spotlight segment! It’s a continuation of our former Cosplay Friday segment and will continue our tradition of featuring cosplayers from all over the world with no discrimination! We want to thank all of you for keeping up with our segment and following as we’ve evolved from when we first started! The feedback and the comments have helped us progress our segment and keep it going for over a year!
Starting off this week, we have the lovely Koyomatsu! A cosplay model for Cosplay Deviants. Koyo has some lovely cosplays and is a beautiful Horo from Spice and Wolf (Her favorite cosplay!) so check her out below!

After an exhausting long weekend and a lot of pictures taken by our alternate site, Ninja Photography ( https://www.facebook.com/NinjaPhotography1985 ) Optimus Reports is wrapping up with pictures from the long weekend. All pictures have already been uploaded onto the owner’s facebook profile with the pictures soon to go up on to our Flickr account and eventually our Facebook photography page!
We were lucky to have several photoshoots over Sakura-Con weekend, and met many new cosplayers for our future Cosplay Friday segments! We hope that you’ll enjoy these future features and our future photoshoots as we continue our endeavor in working with the Cosplay community!
Stay tuned as we not only bring you a new Cosplay Friday feature tomorrow, but more info on our pictures from con weekend!

So here we are, at Sakura-Con 2014 and while Day 2 is over and there was nothing about day 1, Optimus Reports has been travelling the convention center in Seattle, Washington and doing nothing but taking pictures through each day. With just 1 day remaining of Sakura-Con, Optimus Reports will begin uploading our pictures to our primary Flickr account at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ninja-photography-1985/ and of course to our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/NinjaPhotography1985
We’ve got a busy week ahead, but we will keep everyone as up to date as we can!
Until then, if you’re at Sakura-Con, we hope you have had a great weekend so far and wish you a safe trip home!
It’s been a while since we’ve posted about a con, but Optimus Reports had the pleasure of attending Chibi Chibi Con this weekend and had an astounding time! We’ve met many more Cosplay Friday hopefuls and for our sister page, Ninja Photography, we took hundreds of pictures!
We will be sharing these pictures once they’re uploaded.
Update on: 8-26-2014
This is a late update to have a bit of history behind the Chibi Chibi Con convention. From the Chibi Chibi Con website itself:
WHAT IS CHIBI CHIBI CON?
Chibi Chibi Con is an anime convention held annually by the Giant Robot Appreciation Society (G.R.A.S.) at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. It is free to attend and provides an opportunity for interested members of the community, local and otherwise to get together and celebrate our shared interest in Japanese Animation, as well as geek culture in general.
In 1992, the local tabletop gaming club decided to host a 3-day gaming and science fiction convention on campus named GeoCon. G.R.A.S. (still known as Evergreen Students for Anime back then) ran a room at the convention devoted to Japanese animation. This continued annually until 2000, when GeoCon collapsed under its own weight. In 2001 G.R.A.S. decided to continue the anime room as the foundation of its own convention, named Chibi Chibi Con. This year will be the 13-year anniversary of the convention. ^_^
Originally, we had thought to name it Chibi Con, but discovered that another convention (several, technically) already had that name. Our convention is not-for-profit, funded by an award from the campus Services and Activities board. It is run by volunteers, many of whom come from the college’s Japanese animation club. While this gives us certain advantages, it also provides us with certain limitations. In the wake of GeoCon’s collapse, the idea was to help us remember the dangers of growing too big.
This week, we feature Tiffany Diaz, a cosplayer who’s donned many a characters, but is probably most recognizable as Asuka from Evangelion, and makes a remarkably adorable Kiki from Kiki’s Delivery Service. Let’s read on to find out more about her!
After over a month since the originally planned release of the Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transporter for Japan, EU, and the US, Pokemon Bank is finally available all over the world for Pokemon fans to use.
Nintendo has not released any information as to why the Pokemon Bank was delayed for such a long time, and while many are pleased that this tool is finally available, there are still questions to be answered. Hopefully, Nintendo will release some kind of information regarding the delay, but it’s tough to say. For now, let’s all enjoy the Pokemon Bank and Pokemon Transporter release!
According to various posts that stemmed off 4Chan and other various Pokemon Fansites, “Pokemon Bank” released in Asian countries, this was only a rumor until Nintendo of America tweeted the folllowing:
It looks like the rest of the world won’t have to wait all that much longer for the release of Pokemon Bank!
We here at Optimus Reports are looking to hold a Pokemon Giveaway once the Pokemon Bank has officially released. Stay tuned for info on the release of Pokemon Bank for the rest of the world and for our Giveaway!
