Hello world. Moved to Phoenix from Pittsburgh back in January. Curiosity kills cats, thankfully I am not but new to the community and wanted to check it out. I enjoy cosplaying (so far my favorite has been my summoner from final fantasy 14), video games, hiking, hockey, crossfit, anime and I know there is a lot more lol.
So far I only went to Matsuri and went to the game on expo. Looking forward to getting into the con scene more out here since back in Pittsburgh there was only one con per year for anime, furry, gaming and so on so it was not as big of a thing as it is out this way.
I know that the events tab here sometimes get hit with "Group photo at ________ con" or meet, and there's some overlap between the attendees of furry cons, anime cons, and other meets where cosplay would be totally expected. It's probably just a matter of getting out there and meeting a few people.
