OTAKON 2004 Downloadable Videos!!! HIGH-QUALITY!!!

Yesterday, a friend of mine has alerted me to a website "Cosplay Memories" that has downloadable videos from Otakon 2004. I have only downloaded one of the cosplay interview videos but it appears all of videos are high-quality and perfessionally-done. They cover different aspects of the con from the opening cermony to the line-of-doom for the L'Arc~en~Ciel concert. However, I have to warn you that videos are kind of big (for 56kers) as they range from over 40-80MB in size and 20-30mins in length.

Here is the listing of videos:

* Opening Ceremony
* Angela Concert Videos
* Cosplay Contest Videos
* Cosplay Fashion Show
* Halftime: Para Para Dance
* Halftime: Piano Squall
* Awards Ceremony
* Cosplayer Interviews
* “Human Pyramid” Video
* “Line for L'Arc” Video
* Piano Squall Solo Concert Video

You can download them here:

By the way, Otakon 2004: Cosplayer Interviews (Part 3) contains an interview with my friends as FMA cosplayers. :)

Sadly, they don't have footage of the actual L'Arc1~en~Ciel concert due to the "No Camara, No Video" policy. But all is not lost, it turns out that Tofu Records is releasing the L'Arc~en~Ciel Concert at Otakon on DVD in January 25, 2005. There will also be a japanese version too, but I don't know if there's a difference between the US and Japanese DVDs.

From Anime News Network: (Yes, I know it's old news)
L'Arc-en-Ciel US premiere DVD (2004-10-12 16:08:56)
The Japanese Homepage of L'Arc-en-Ciel has put up some information regarding an upcoming DVD of the first North American concert for L'Arc-en-Ciel, which happened at the Mariner's Arena in Baltimore on July 31st. The Japanese DVD is set to come out on 12/8/2004, at a cost of 4515 yen (including tax).
