"Hello the this is Big Andy bringing you our experience at Katsucon. What makes a convention absolutely outstanding is that it is usually set in a hotel which makes it a beautiful hang out place for anime fans and geeks alike. Katsucon in gaylord national hotel in the state of Maryland is a beautiful place by the nice view of the shore (whether if you are looking at it from the third floor or by the dock). My favorite part was the indoor yard where all the cosplayers gathered to take photographs. The fountain and the mini town had an islander paradise feel too it which made it easy to talk to people. Then again the anime community is friendly in general. Cosplay is really about beauty, art and fandom."
