Holiday Matsuri was held the weekend of December 13th in Orlando, Florida. This is a holiday-themed cosplay event filled with shopping and fun.
Like all events there were problems. The biggest complaint was parking, some people reported was parking. There were reports of people having to circle forever before they could find a spot and others parking miles away. Other common complaints for this event included rude staff members and overcrowding. There were several complaints about wall-to-wall people in the vendors room and panels.
On the plus side, the event had a fantastic turnout, parties go on all night, and the cosplay is stellar.
Special thanks to Steven Lynch for letting me use some of his photos. Check out his album for more.
