November is filled to the brim with conventions in the L.A. area and we start off the month with Stan Lee’s Comikaze 2013. This is the first year the convention has gone for three days, and wow those were some long days full of stuff. Saturday was packed to the brim and everyday had great cosplay. So enough of me talking, let’s get to some picks of the con.
Now on to some cosplay!
Gomez and Morticia Addams!
So there’s some pictures from the con. For the most part the con was great. There was a sore spot though, there was a guy who was caught taking unwanted pictures of passers by’s butts. Comikaze was quick to react but when I was looking around, I heard that the guy was still on the premises the next day. I thought he should have been kicked out for that behavior since that sort of thing is a part of a bigger problem and people should be able to go to a con away from that. I thought the harassment policy was zero tolerance but I got that mistaken with the official Twitter account of Comikaze. The fact that this guy has the wiggle room necessary to go from publicly stating zero tolerance to still there the day after, isn’t really going to put a stop to that behavior. The written harassment policy on their site doesn’t match up with that tweet stating no tolerance, the written policy is good but it has more room to allow this guy to stay. I like how inclusive the list is, but it can say that Comikaze decided to have some tolerance versus that tweet. It’s a weird clash. Sorry for ending this article on a sad note, but I want to know why this guy was still there and I’m not getting answers.
