Dance Off at A-kon 29
One of the great things about conventions these days is the amount of creativity that gets to be showcased at them! In addition to the normal events scheduled through convention organizers, there are groups of convention goers that have a need to show off their talents in many wonderful ways. The most popular of late has been the cosplay dance off. No, Star Lord didn't start this trend, but his joke in Guardians of the Galaxy did encourage more people to join in. Now, at many conventions, big & small, you can find at least one person with a large speaker just looking for the perfect time to hit the music & get it going!
Now, if you've seen this happen before or watched a video of it on YouTube, you've probably noticed that Take On Me by A Ha is probably the more popular song choice. However, every now & then, you'll get someone who decides to come in with something fresh &, even more rare, choreographed! That's what happened here, at A-Kon. Two of the three members of the cosplay group The Trash Cave started out with a classic cosplay dance off that rolled into a full choreographed routine to Like Morning Follows Night, from the popular Anime RWBY. It was so much fun to watch these two perform that the crowd actually grew more during their choreographed routine than it did during the initial dance off. It's cosplayers like them that make these conventions worth going to!
