Exploring WinterCon 2018 @ Resorts World Casino: Chapter 2

wintercon logo

Greetings Geeks!!!! Welcome back to more of the wandering in the aisles of the Resorts World Casino expo floor where the 2019 WinterCon was taking over like gangbusters. I’m continuing from where I left off in Chapter 1 so be sure to visit that installment first in the event you are just joining us. This chapter has a LOT of the cosplayers that we met and I will not be naming all of them since you should know that stuff by now if you are reading this website. I will however begin with some famous names in Japanese Pop Culture with Tsugutoshi Komada and Bin Furuya. Komada played Jet Jaguar in the “Godzilla Vs. Megalon” film and my hope is that this character somehow returns in the upcoming “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” film that opens next summer. Then there is Bin Furuya who portrayed Ultraman. Arigato for the photos gentlemen.

We’ve chanced upon the lovely ladies of the Maid 4 U Cafe group at a few events now but first met them at the WinterCon. They are all so super kawaii.

Star Wars fans owe this man a debt of eternal gratitude for he is Colin Cantwell, the designer of many of the original “Star Wars” starships and crafts. Thank you sir, it was a pleasure to say hello and to shake your hand.

Well that’s a wrap my friends. This post brings me to the end of the narratives for the 2019 WinterCon at the Resorts World Casino. I’m pretty exhausted from all the walking today and think that I will be sleeping in tomorrow. Readers of “The Chronicles” know that I was at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show all day yesterday before coming to this event and I think that I must have pushed myself a little too hard. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this years go round and of course this marks my final convention for the year before the holidays lead us into the shiny New Year. I have a few things lined up for January already but those adventures are under “The Chronicles” brand. As I close this up I encourage you to click on some of the links down below to see more about the people and places showcased in this chapter and also to keep pace with PiercingMetal on our social networks of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I always use those accounts a lot during convention adventures. Also, please feel free to chime in if you recognize anyone in cosplay so I cam post their Official Pages or Instagrams as well. See you next time.
