Fans of fun are the true winners when it comes to all the family friendly events that happen all over the area. Flooding and heavy rain were in last weekend’s forecast but that couldn’t keep the fans, families and contestants away from the West Side Theatre in Newman on January 7th for the second annual NorCal Cosies.
The mini-con took place between 10 am and 4 pm during the day and was host to Vendors, Artist, Fan Groups greeting kids of all ages. Costumes ranged from store bought to handcrafted. As with most Pop Culture Conventions, there were panels but unique to the Cosies were the performances from Spotlight Dance and Power Productions.
At 6 pm the doors opened again and the finalists from each category, the Newman Court, host for the evening actor James Weston and his wife along with others walked the Red Carpet as flashes from photographers lit up the night.
Special thanks to In Search of Cosplay for taking pictures all day. For many more pictures from the event check them out on facebook.
