this is love — a stunning yaoi-con tribute video

What was it like at Yaoi-Con? Well, Mamuro5254 will be more than happy to show you, in this video that demonstrates what happens when a videographer with serious skills, equipment, and love for yaoi is set loose in a crowd…

The video highlights some of the con’s best cosplay and includes an artfully edited dance performance by Levi and the Jaegernauts, who took part in the masquerade. They won for best costume, if I remember right (I was a bit distracted, I must admit, because their Levi really looks the part).

Wondering about the setting? Mamuro5254 made good use of the Hyatt and environs. That parking garage was the one behind the Hyatt, and driving up the concrete ramps past a mix of middle-aged four-star hotel guests and (mostly) teens & 20-somethings in cosplay was pretty amusing. Sadly, I didn’t get to see the Jaegernauts doing their thing among the cars.

Welcome to Yaoi-Con!
