This weekend in the beautiful city of Traverse City, Michigan, the Northern Michigan Anime Convention is once again at the Great Wolf Lodge and it promises to be a great time!

Pretty scenery waits outside and a water park within!

The scenery outside the lodge is beautiful for cosplay photography and the waterpark is a wonderful venue for a weekend of fun.

The Lodge interior is also great for Cosplayers and Cosphotographers!

Even if you aren’t one for the water, the interior of the Great Wolf Lodge has many places that are great backdrops for the beautiful costumes that will be worn at the con!

Last year the events included a tea party with folks in costume enjoying their favorite hot beverages and tasty morsels.

Last year's Swimsuit Cosplayers gave the cosplay swimsuit show a thumbs up!

When I was chatting with the Con Ops this evening I was surprised to hear that the costume contest isn’t until Sunday afternoon until they reminded me that they have a Cosplay Swimsuit Contest so head on up to Traverse City for a relaxing soak and some exciting cosplay!
