This past weekend popular Japanese cosplayer, REIKA, was invited to San Francisco as a Guest of Honor for this year's SF Anime & Cosplay Festival. The event took place in Japantown in the Peace Plaza between the Japantown East & West Malls. Huge crowds filled the area for all the events that involved REIKA and her Q&A Panel was no different. There was not a single empty seat and every free space was taken. A-To-J Connections Project Lead, alavic_222 was in attendance and took the opportunity to film the panel in its entirety. The camera was locked tight, but below are some pictures of those who were lucky enough to have their questions answered. Many questions were answered and REIKA's advice to a fan who wanted advice as to a career in cosplay was worth the price of admission alone. This question is the final one in case you are curious and takes up a large portion of the panel. Here's hoping that all fans of REIKA are able to catch her at a convention or event near you as she was a pleasure to meet and one of the best guests an event could ever hope to have. The complete video of the panel in its entirety can be viewed below.
