CosAwesome was more than just cosplay and photos, though there was a lot of both.
It was a gathering of friends in a great location. There were also seminars for those that wished to attend and those that wished to give them on topics that included prop building, wigs, sewing and self-defense. Unfortunately, I only attended a few of them.
The Four Points By Sheraton in West Lafayette was a great location for this. There is a center atrium filled with beautiful plants, pool and a hot tub that is spectacular for photo shoots or gatherings. Around the atrium are spiral staircases leading up to balconies and rooms. There are also a lot of great areas nearby for offsite photo shoots.
They had a ballroom set up for greeting, registration and photos
Most of the staff at the hotel was fantastic.
I definitely look forward to the next event. Thank you to the Wulfgars, Uriel, CosAwesome, Wulfgar Weapons, and everyone else for making this event happen and for making it the great thing it is.
