The highlight, as usual, was the costume contest, but we also were privileged to attend a concert of Godzilla film music composed by Akira Ifukube in what would have been his 100th birthday, with a full orchestra, the first such concert ever in North America. It was fantastic. As a contributor to the kickstarter effort to get the concert off the ground, I will be receiving a CD of the concert, as well.
Along with the sessions with the guests, fan-lead discussions about the movies, and a huge dealers room full of all kinds of merchandise, we had a blast. A sampling of pictures follows.
