San Japan

San Japan, LLC, formed in Fall 2005, is an organization tasked with operating a yearly Japanese Culture and Anime Convention to provide high-quality education and entertainment for our attendees in a safe and fun environment, and to promote the acceptance and appreciation of the anime fandom in the Mid-South and throughout the country as a whole. The inaugural convention was held in San Antonio, Texas on August 8th, 2008 through August 10th, 2008。

So why do we care? Well it's a great place to cultivate a steampunk culture. This is a place where people dress up in odd outfits to look like odd people from odd shows...odd...RANDOM EVEN!!!!!

I have attended the past 2 gatherings of this particular convention. Jon joined me at the 2009 convention. From then on, we knew this would be a great place to walk around steampunked. That is exactly what we plan to do. So we'll be gathering the crew of the A.S. Eden Falls and hopefully have epic pictures from all the fun! We also want to create SPA posters/pamphlets that we will be handing out to everyone we can find. Well, that is the point of Steampunk AWARENESS.

There was a Jack Sparrow there. He was REALLY good. I swear it probably was Jonny Depp and he just didn't tell anyone.
