tekko

Tekko is Pittsburgh’s premiere anime, gaming, fashion, music, and Japanese pop culture convention presented by the Pittsburgh Japanese Culture Society. This year, Tekko was able to bring in over 8,000 attendees, a new record for the convention. During the weekend there were many panels available to go to, so many that I wanted to split myself in half to try to attend them all!

One of the panels I was able to attend was “Did You Know? Shinigami Love Apples. Death Note In Depth”. This panel was all about Death Note, the speakers of the panel were even in cosplay. L asked if we were all Pro-Kira or Anti-Kira, which if you’ve watched this show you’re most likely Pro-Kira. Who wouldn’t love someone who wanted to get rid of all of the bad people and crime in the world? The room, unsurprisingly was Pro-Kira for the most part. They also brought it different aspects of how Death Note relates to the Bible. Another one of the panels we attended was “Sweet Viktuuri- Behind the Scenes of Yuri! On Ice”. This panel was interactive and very fun. You could definitely tell the presenter knew what she was talking about. I learned a lot about who Yuri was based off of and how the author came about making the show.

One of my favorite panels was “The Art of Packing your Lunch- Bento 101”. During this panel, Katy Wolfe taught us the ins and outs of packing a bento. A bento is a single serving meal, that consists of rice, fish or meat, and veggies. Katy told us that we should stay away from the bento kits, which are mostly way more expensive than any other bento box, rice shapers because they are hard to use and are horrible to clean. One of the last panels we visited was “Cooking With a Killer Robot”. This panel was about the video game Undertale and how to make the different foods in the video game. The presenters were Pixel By Pixel Cosplay. They were cosplaying as the main characters in the game: Alphys, Mettaton, Papyrus, Toriel, and Burgerpants. They made Starfaits (Mettaton’s favorite), spaghetti (Papyrus’ favorite), and Butterscotch Cinnamon Pie (Toriel’s favorite). These cosplayers never broke character and were some of the sweetest people.

Tekko held their opening ceremonies Friday evening. Comedian Uncle Yo was the host of these ceremonies; he introduced all of the guests they would have during the weekend. These guests included: MAGIC OF LiFE, Kimura U, Ian Sinclair, Brina Palencia, Jad Saxton, Cherami Leigh, Jeff Nimoy, Haenuli, and a four DJ line up. They also had a booth set up upstairs that helped with your cosplay if something happened to it. They had golden tickets under the seats during the opening ceremonies to win a comic or other special items, and we were lucky enough to get one under our seat. Nancy Kepner (HeartfeltHumor on youtube) was one of the musical guests. She writes and sings her own music, all about pop culture. Some of the songs she performed for us were the weeabo song, the fan service song, there –dere song, and a song about yuri on ice.

The band that performed this year was MAGIC OF LiFE. This was their first concert in the US. Before the concert, they had a Q&A session where we learned a lot about them, for example what they would’ve liked to be if they wouldn’t have made it in the music business, their Uncle Yo was the host of these ceremonies; he introduced all of the guests they would have during the weekend.

Their concert was an amazing experience, between being in the front row and then getting their autographs afterwards.

Tekko had aa exhibition room and gaming room open throughout the weekend. There were many vendors in the exhibition room as well as the fashion designers trying to sell their merchandise. There was a variety of things to buy in the exhibition room, from gaming, to anime to fashion. There were body pillows, buttons, art, posters, corgi butt purses, and so much more!

One of the things I really liked that Tekko did was the closing ceremonies. During these ceremonies, they released the theme for next year as well as take in advice the audience was willing to give to make next year even better. They even gave a hint for who one of the voice actors might be next year!

Olivia Sophia Stationery is so Great!

Posted on January 12, 2017 in Reviews

We recently received a 2017 Planner from Olivia Sophia Stationery, and my Mother In Law loved it.  So, I gave it to her.  She has had cancer since 2010, coming back 3 times, and this time, it can’t be healed.  There’s a molecule in her body, that just keeps floating around, and when it lands, it’ll be a strong cancer.

So, I gave her the Planner to keep track of her appointments, which she goes to every 3 weeks, so that she doesn’t forget.  She also takes a pill for 21 days, this way she can keep track of the meds, and appointments.

There is plenty of space, in each date, to mark what you need.  Whether you want to do it by weekly, or daily, both charts are there.

My mother in law carries her new Planner everywhere.  She loves it.  I’m glad I was able to do something for her, in her trying time.  I’m afraid, if I didn’t have her grandson, she would give up.

I do have to say, “this is the best planner I’ve come across.”  I kind of wish I would’ve kept it for myself, but right now, my mother in law is more important.  And, I can always order another one.  They aren’t expensive.  It’s a great investment.  I can keep everything planned out, with the Olivia Sophia Stationery Planners.

 “This planner is for girl boss or woman entrepreneur that wants to stay focused on her goals while being inspired throughout the year. It features a goal planning page inspiration quotes  for every month. It has an easy lay-out and fun designs to keep motivated.”

– Monthly & Weekly Layout
